Should we take the Prime Time plunge?

My husband and I sold our first and only TT not long ago and are in the market for a new one. We bought a Keystone Outback in 2006 and loved it but just outgrew it after 9 years. Our small children have become teenagers

We have it narrowed down to two models and are planning to buy one or the other this weekend. We have our eyes on a Keystone Cougar xlite that is very nice but there are a couple of small hold-ups for us on that one. Then there is the Prime Time Tracer 3200bht that we both really like but my husband isn't sure how he feels about the brand. We didn't have any issues with our prior Keystone. He wanted me to do some research and reviews on Prime Time before we take that plunge. Anyone have any thoughts?

Finally, I have a question I'm hoping someone on this forum could answer. I'm trying to figure out the interior height of the Tracer 3200. I know what the overall specs are but I'm wondering from floor to ceiling inside the model. DH is 6'4" and we know it would cut it close.

Thanks for any advice and information - I look forward to reading more on this site!!
Lesley

Check them out here: Tracer Travel Trailers by Prime Time Manufacturing

And contact them through their "contact" page for any questions that your dealer won't/can't answer.

We are on our second Prime Time unit. The first was a Lacrosse that we had for 3 years and was trouble free (except for the stupid stuff I did) but, was otherwise a good solid unit. We now have a Sanibel 5th wheel which we travel and full time in. Other than a few minor issues in the beginning, it too has been a great unit.

We have a Crusader now and would definitely consider a Sanibel if upgrading 😊

We have had no issues with ours and love it. As with any any trailer purchase, try to have all of the bugs worked out before you sign! We had a small list of warranty work to get done, all completed within the first 4 months, and have had no issues since!
Happy Camping!

I was going to say look at the Prime Time Lacrosse...there is a similar layout and I think you will see the quality difference

We have the Prime Time Tracer 3200BHT and love it but would have gone with a 5th wheel if I had a larger truck. I pull with a 1500 Ram crew cab and get a little sway. I don't know how tall it is on the inside but if you haven't figured that out yet I can measure it when I get home today.
