I have to agree with you I'm biased as well. I really feel for anyone having multiple problems with any new camper. Off to Maine in July and then Big Meadows in Shenandoah National Park, mid October and some short trips in between.

Where is Glen Dale ? If you don't mind my asking. I lived in Westminster MD. until we retired to Artemas PA.

Grayfox,I have to apologize,meant to reply and just got busy and forgot.GlennDale is in the armpit county of Md. Prince Georges.Right next to Bowie.Actually just got back from a camping trip to Pa.Little town of Denver near Reading.Power was out everywhere here in Md. due to the tremendous straight line winds.But we seemed to miss it here in my little section.

Thanks for getting back to me. I was just curious about Glen Dale. I remember
now.... my sister in law lived in Bowie 30 years ago. It was a nice area at the time. Hope you enjoyed your Stay in Denver PA.

We just missed you! We passed through Grand Teton NP on our way south from Yellowstone on June 30th!

We just finished a 6,200 round trip and only saw 1 Crusader on I-80 out of Rock Springs, WY

We just purchased our 325RES a couple of weeks ago. We've never seen one on the road yet! We took our maiden voyage with it last weekend to the garden peninsula in Upper Michigan. We actually had to give tours of it! Everyone was interested! Guess I'm not surprised that we've never seen another one....we're kind of stuck in the frozen tundra up here! Hopefully we'll get to see more of them when we venture out!

Oh, and I meant to comment about the problems. We've been living in ours since we purchased it 3 weeks ago and the only problems we've encountered is with the coutertops. We have the black gloss Estone and it scratches VERY easily! Other than that, we've been pleased with it!!! Granted it's only been 3 weeks....but I expected that we'd run into some minor things that would need fixed.

I think the dealer close to me sells quite a few Crusaders.

Crusaders seen

Just got back from a month long trip from Jax FL up to the Virginias then back down to Tampa area. Seen only two Crusaders on I-95. Only had one minor problem with the unit in the 2000+ miles.......top right running light on the rear of the unit did not work........bulb Ok....took it off and one of the wires had come loose from its connector. All else was super. Got about 11mpg on my dodge ram with 410 rear end.

Arrow Seen today!

Got on I-95 in South Carolina this morning (in my car) and pulled out right behind a Crusader 260RLT with FL plates and a white GMC 2500 headed south! Should get good MPG with that light unit. It looked like it was fairly new.
