V-Cross 29VBH??? Pros, Cons?

If all goes right we should be picking up our new 2010 29VBH. We have about a week to change our minds or give the final go ahead. Does anyone own a V-Cross or have any questions or concerns. My only concern is they always say if the deal is to good to be true it probably is. We are getting this TT for almost 10K below MSRP. Should we be worried or go with the flow and be happy we are getting such a great deal? Any feadback would be greatly appreciated.

You are probably doing OK on the deal. The dealer may be hungry for sales or this particular unit may have been on the lot a while and he needs to move it. Check a few of the on-line retailers (RV Direct is one, RV Wholesalers is another) to see if they have anything similar and what their prices are. Both of these should be a good benchmark.

Do a google search on "RV" and start picking from the many dealers that get listed to help in your research.

It's rare that the dealer actually gets MSRP anymore, as we all know the MSRP is ridiculously inflated, but the dealer's like it cause it gives them room to drop their price, they still make a lot, and make the customer feel like they are getting a steal.

We have a V-Cross 27VFK and one reason we find you can get a good deal on these units is the high tongue weight. Most people see the higher weight of a Vee front tongue and go to a conventional trailer. Of course, that is my personal opinion and not based on an actual survey. We love the extra space in the Vee design and, aside from bad tires, have had no problems with the unit.

v-cross

We also have a 27vfk and are very very happy with it. Like Willy said be sure to check your tires for weather checking. Ours were also bad but there was no problem getting them replaced no questions asked or fees charged. Our only other real problem was with the kitchen sink not draining but it turned out to be a slipped gasket where the drain enters the tank and it was also resolved no problem by our dealer. Good luck and happy camping. We hope you like yours as much as we like ours. Old Guys

Thanks guys I have searched all over and everything I have found is about 5-7K higher than what we are paying. My only concern was the quality of the V-cross brand as we have never even seen a forest river camper up close. WillyB thanks for the info, we always love to hear anything from an actual owner of the same brand. We know absolutely nothing about the brand. We should be taking delivery 2nd week of July if everything goes according to plan. If anyone has any pros and cons of the V-cross feel free to comment. Thanks again.

Also is the Equalizer hitch compatable with the V design or do we need to look into something else? W currently have the E-2 hitch and judging from the pictures it doesnt look like you could hook up the sway bars to the frame the way it is designed.?

Hi Medicspanky. I have owned my V lite 30 foot dual slide outs for almost 3 years now, and have not had any problems. I personally love the V front design, as it gives you more interior space. Our V area is a bedroom walk in closet. The Equalizer hitch will work perfectly fine with the V setup, as well. Mine is made by Flagstaff, while the V cross is a Rockwood. BOTH are Forest River campers. (Different stickers, and upholstery changes, that's about it).
Your price is lower because you have a bunkhouse model, which is cheaper for the manufacturer to produce, therefore passing the savings down to you. You will love the V cross, I'll bet, just as we love the V lite. Randy

Medicspanky, we use a Reese Pro Series SC hitch. The bars are square and sit in holders mounted to the tongue frame. The sway control is provided because the bed the bars sit on is 'brake shoe' materiel. The whole deal has higher ground clearance than a standard chain type WD hitch. Weight distribution adjustment is provided by the ball angle, rather than chain tension. So far I love it. Very stable and easy to use.

x2. My expectations were high when I got this same hitch, and it did not disappoint. They say the new "cam" models are better, if so, they must be amazing.

Personally, I think this model looks easier to install and hook up.
