Thumbs up Prime Time LaCrosse

Since I'm not very happy with the basic quality of my current tt and have, and still am, experiencing structual issues, I decided to do a little looking around. Some of you probably already know about this, but I just found out that FR has a new division, Prime Time. They currently are making 3 different lines, Tracer (lite weight tt), LaCrosse (mid-level tt) and Crusader (mid-level 5'er). They have their own, brand new factory and this division is headed up by the guy who use to run the Montana division for Keystone, according to a dealer I talked to.

I found a few on the lot of a dealer and looked them over. Looks like they not only have added some nice new features but have made some vast improvements with the basic construction, at least improvements over what I currently own.

Some of the basic improvements are, the floors, walls (all 4) and roof are made with welded aluminum framing, no wood. The slideouts are made the same way. You can even walk on the slideout roof. 25 year warranty on all water lines and fittings. 25 year warranty on the rubber roof.

Talked with a salesman and I'm getting real close to a deal on one, LaCrosse 303 RKS model. Price and weight of the tt isn't very much more than what I currently have. Anyone who is interested in purchasing a new tt or maybe just looking should at least take a look at these tt's.

Here's a link to their web site. Prime Time Manufacturing, Manufacturers of travel trailers and fifth wheels

It contains the usual info but quite a bit more as well, detailed construction, features, contact info (not just for Prime Time but appliance vendors as well). It will take some time to read through everything, but to me it was time well spent.

Enjoy!


P.S. After looking their web site over, post what you think about 'em.

I was impressed when I checked them out on the dealers lot. I know the LaCrosse is an upgrade from the "lite" model trailers, but man what a difference. The selling price is only a couple K's over what I paid for mine and the dry weight is only 700 lbs more.

CCC of the trailer is around 2,600 lbs. I was once told that's a sign of a well made tt. How much weight it can carry.

I was really impressed walking through the tt. Even though the stabilizers were not down, the flooring felt really solid through out the tt. As far as how they're constructed, floors, walls etc.., I think it's a step in the right direction.

I should know in a few days on the tt I'm looking at. We have a decent deal in place, I'm just checking on a few things, stalling actually, so my wife and I can take some time to decide if we really want to do it. We both want to make a trade in the near future, just want to make sure this is the deal we want.

Gotta love those "Slam Shut Baggage Doors" and "Keyless Entry" features.

Just think, you would be the first one here (probably) with one. You would be famous. Well, sort of. I do have an extra chair and plenty of beverages in the cooler.

I just got off the phone with the salesman a few minutes ago. He'll be calling back in the morning after he checks on a couple of things. The wife and I will talk about it till then. If she ready, I know I am, we'll probably make a drive up tomorrow, look 'em over one last time and if everything looks good, we'll start the financial part.

Wish us luck!
