Going to buy a 2011 crusader 320 RLT

This my first post so please bare with me. I am looking to buy(private
sale) a 2001 Crusader 320 RLT, is there anything I should be looking at that has been a problem in the manufacturing of this particular year or model. Keep in mind that is will be my first 5fr I have ever owned. I am having a look at it tonight. Only had tent trailers before, so this is a big step.

Thanks for all you help in advance.

Is it a 2001 or 2011 fifth wheel? Also hope you have enough truck to pull this trailer....others will chime in with reviews of trailer.

You should enjoy your new rig. I have a 2012 and have minimal issues, but none of late. I weighed ours at the scales loaded for camping and it came in at 11,300 lbs. Your 3/4 ton should do fine with this camper, but you will be at your top end or a tad over of your gvwr for your truck.

I have yet to put it on the scales loaded. Once I have done that, we will have to adjust our requirements. We pick it up in 9 days so then I can play with it. I also emailed Prime Time for some info and they emailed me back within a day. So I am very please with the response. ASAL protection plan comes with my 5er that is suppose to be transferable. I never hear of this company all I know that it Canadian. Has anybody every use them before.
Thanks for you help
