That's the same one I bought back in December. Make sure they show you everything and how to work it all. Look underneath the slide outs for wear and rubbing. I don't have nah but other crusader have problems with the Draco tearing.

Just take your time and make sure everything is working take notes and ask questions and after they show or open something, then do it again yourself so you know how it feels and sounds.When you get home you will have questions so get the # so you can call and get a refresher statement. Always post a question that you have on this FORUM most of the time someone had the same question or problem. You will get better answer here then from your dealer. Good Luck, The 2 best day's are the day you pick up the unit and the day you sell it. In between just have fun and enjoy yourself and the people who you get to meet on your adventure. Seems every trip I take turns into a new adventure. It's different each time.

What is this Draco for? I do not understand it and why all units don't have it. Just the PT units. Why can't they just spray a protectant on the wood bottom? Seems to be a big problem. Can not see how fabric would hold up?

Use a good PDI sheet. There's one in the Library here on the FRF Web Site (green bar at the top- you have to be on the site, not in the app to see it). However, this is the one that I've used twice now:

That, and watch out for aliens:

We love our primetime lacrosse! They make a great unit and have good service.(based on a rv qc curve)
However I will never buy another unit with fabric on the bottom of the slide outs.

Thank you all for getting back to me and the tips. I will let you all know how it goes tomorrow. Also my shopping experience with General rv was amazing. I would like all my purchases I have ever done would go this smooth.

Congrats on your new Crusader! Prime Time has a pretty good track record and they have good customer service, no RV is perfect. Just remember if you don't understand something or forgot how to do something ask to see it again until you understand it. Don't be afraid to video your PDI if you want. Best of luck I know you will have years of great camping ahead.

Platokidd we also purchased our Crusader from General RV in Huntley.
