New Owner- Cruise Lite 195BH- and some questions

Hello-

I'm new to the forum, and new to this camper. We've had a couple other campers- but this is our first new one.

The unit we bought is clearly a "starter camper", based on the price and what is in it.

It did not come with a pre-installed stereo, and I don't remember being offered the option. Does anyone know if these trailers are pre-wired for a sound system?

Thanks, in advance.

ours wasn't. we enjoy ours and also bought ours due to price, but also that means less to break and go wrong too.

X2 on the not being prewired. We also love our 195, although the wife is ready to upgrade. Watch your loading, somehow I'm at 625 tounge weight and I have hardly nothing in it. It's just the two of us!. Anyway congrats. P.s. hello jawga!

we have a 2013 that came with radio installed. maybe no radio is F.R way of keeping price "in line"? Marketing ploy smaller packages same price rather than same package higher price?

Personally you'd be better off installing what you want.
IMO the factory radio and or radio dvd combo is cheap and at the lowest end of quality.

I think people would be surprised if they got an actual tounge weight. I have a blue top, full gas bottle, electric tounge jack and 2 wd hitch brackets. Sticker says 400lb tounge, bs!....I'm over 600



2014 Wildwood X-lite 195bh......Happy camping.

I added a stereo to ours today, very easy. Like the fact that I can run the sound for our TV through it too.
