Crusader 325 RES

Disappointment.
It started when I discovered that the front cap insulation consisted of 5 sheets of batting hanging loose from the top of the closet, the company says this is a R10 rating, loose hanging batting is worthless. I was able to remove the closet to gain access and insulate the front cap. then the microwave has came loose (no support on the rear) The dealer just tightens the screws and says that's all they can do. Then the mirror door in the bedroom fell out. Only 2 screws holding up the entire track. Next is scary, noticed hot tire at rest area, happened to be close to a Camping World store, turned out axles were assembled wrong, all new bearings ,seals and breaks, and the list goes on Slide, dinette chairs, AC, furnace ducting.

I am very disappointed with the workmanship and quality of this product.

I think you will find some sort of issues with any product, I haven't a FR Shasta Revere and some things I just can't understand how they get thru inspections bc there is no quality control, I love the crusaders but decided on switching to a Rockwood Roo 23IKSS since I don't need all that space but they are made well compared to some brands of 5th wheelers I have seen

We have a tracer 3150 and love it. Did about 25 nights our first year and hoping to double it next year.
Had some minor cosmetic warranty issues (latch won't close, crooked outdoor kitchen door) but the dealer took care of them no problem.
For the money, I feel we got more value than the other brands we looked at.

First off welcome to the forum. Your in the right spot for help and learning.

Sorry to hear about all the issues your having, I know it can SUCK.
Had the same issue on my Lacrosse with the microwave.
I had my dealer (when it was in for warranty work) glue a 1x2 down so the rear micro feet could sit on it.Simple task you could do yourself. Mine almost fell out of the cabinet on a trip.
Based on the rv qc curve Prime Time makes the best bang for the buck and some of the better units.
Good luck
