New LaCrosse Model

I'm not sure if we get to advertise a little since we participate on the forum pretty regularly, but I'll give it a try .

There's a new LaCrosse model starting to roll in at our dealerships called a 308RES.

You can check out the floorplan and specs at this link: Prime Time Manufacturing, Manufacturers of travel trailers and fifth wheels

We will have some photos up in our gallery soon, but you can get a pretty good idea what much of it looks like by viewing the 305 gallery.

Enjoy!

PTM

Your gonna get me big trouble.... Bought a Jayco in 2010, saw the Tracer at the boat and RV show this year and had to have it.... so I traded in the Jayco and got the PT Tracer 2670. I really like the floor plan on this new model. Looks like a possible three-peat in 2012. My wife is gonna kill me!

Nice floorplan.

We looked at the 301RES and my wife really liked the large living area, but did not like the small bedroom. If you had the 308RES at the time we bought, there's a good chance we would have bought one instead of the 303RKS.

But we really do like the 303RKS and there is no way I'm tradin'!

We like the large TV and wide living area of this trailer. Based on the brochures we thought we wanted this model for months. When we finally got to tour one in person we found the brochures don`t tell the whole story. In the end the viewing angles for the tv in the RES bothered us. Some viewers had good angles, some had sharp (bad) angles. When we saw the viewing angles on the 301RLS, the fireplace, the 12 cu. ft fridge, and abundant storage we changed our toon and bought that model instead. Just wanted to pass along our recent experience. We cannot wait to try it next weekend! I am trying to wait on any serious mods until I have the first trip, but it is hard.

jjarrard - The 301 does offer fantastic line's of sight to the TV. Enjoy your new LaCrosse.

Since we really love to smoke and grill a lot, the large fridge was also a big selling point for us! After a lot of research and looking, we are excited to have such a nice unit! I really appreciate the positive helpful atmosphere here at FRF. We will take pictures next weekend to share! Thanks!

12 Cu. Ft refrigerator big selling point

We agree the space in the 301RLS plus the 12 cu. ft space, sight lines for the TV & Fireplace made this our choice.
My story is that my wife bought a $30K refrigerator and the trailer was thrown in the deal.
We traded our 2010 Surveyor for the 301RLS when we had no intension of buying a trailer, fell in love with the space, refrigerator, closet space, and impressed with all of the little things Prime Time has added to this line.
Looking forward to this season, RVing in the LaCrosse.

I bought this t shirt also! The fridge was great last weekend. The trailer really is awesome. I have yet to find another $30K fridge with a TT thrown in yet!
