We have a Prime Time Tracer 2670 BHS and are very pleased with it. No major problems with it...just a tank monitor that could be more accurate. No a big deal though. I did have to call Prime Time service for help locating the water heater bypass valves. Roger Stickel was very helpful and courteous...made sure we were satisfied with his help. I would buy the same TT again!

Good luck with your decision....and

Thanks so much for your feedback!

We're planning to purchase sometime next summer. From reading this forum and others, the advice is that you should take the RV on several short trips to work out the bugs before taking a long trip.

We won't retire completely until October 2014.... then we plan to hit the road for the winter.... someplace warm! Long term we plan to use the RV about 6 months out of the year for a few years.

Can't wait to hit the road!

We have had no mechanical issues whatsoever. All slides, water systems, electrical systems, trailer brakes and bearings (I just had the bearings repacked after 10,000+miles: the mechanic also checked the brakes and informed me that in his opinion, they had at least 15,000 miles left in them before they would need replacement), and the and appliances have worked perfectly.
We had some cosmetic wood trim flaws and some skirting damage that was replaced (not repaired... replaced!) by PrimeTime before we took possesion. The CO2 detector also proved to be faulty at the time I had the bearings repacked, and PrimeTime replaced the factory unit with a superior product.
I give PrimeTime excellent grades for customer support and assistance. (Roger is invaluable)
We love our Crusader 290RLT TE and have never had a second thought about our choice. It's a lot of trailer for the bucks!
After well over 10,000 happy miles towing our rig, when a campground neighbor asks me how I like the Crusader, I have no problem giving both this model and manufacturer my unreserved recommendation.

Yes! I would do it again!

Compared to some places, I agree. But I've spent to much time clearing ICE out of my driveway in the last few years to want to do it after I retire!

Where you from?

Kansas City, Missouri area! I know what you mean about ice! The drive here on the farm is 700 feet long, and even with the tractor doing the 'shoveling', it's still a chore. I'm at the point that if it's just a minor snowfall, I just throw some logs on the fire and wait for a thaw! Getting real lazy!

I would recommend a Prime Time trailer. We have had our Lacrosse 318 for a full season now and we love it. PT trailers come with tons on features at a resonable price. We are very happy that we chose it over the other trailers that we were looking at.

There were only a few minor issues with it which were all fixed promtly by the dealer.

Good luck!

Had our Lacrosse 303RKS a full 2 years now. Just minor issues both in and "just" out of warranty. All taken care of by PT with no problem. As a matter of fact, we are looking to upgrade to a 5er in the near future (for full timing also), and have settled on a Crusader or Sanibel. I have delt with RVGuy, Roger and Brandon at PT and have had long conversations with all of them. All have gone above and beyond as far as I'm concerned, I will defenately deal with PT again.

We bought a Sanibel 3500 in August of this year. We LOVE it. Two problems that were handled promptly. Went on a maiden voyage of 100 miles. Left on Oct 1 and returned on Nov 3, with 4500 miles and five states, not a hitch. You will find the thought that went into this rv everywhere you look. Led lights, Large drawers in the kitchen, pantry, large refer, the list goes on. Feel free to PM us if you would like more info. You have the very large plus of having the vp of Primetime who moniters this site. We sent him a pm with some ideas for the unit and the vp of product devolpment CALLED us and listened to our ideas, try and find that with another mfg.
It is after all what you like and what feels good in an rv, it does not hurt to have a company such as this one with your back. So buy the unit thats right and enjoy your retirement.

I really like my Lacrosse.....had a few issues..just like almost every owner from other manufacturers. They were quickly addressed without any out of pocket expense. I have been very pleased with their customer service. PT supports their product. In addition, questions and concerns are frequently addressed on this website through direct contact with the company's president. How many companies can you say that about? The Sanibels are sweeeeeeet!
