Just picked-up our 2014 Crusader 330MKS Touring on Saturday. Love it! PDI went great. Just a couple of minor items. Fit/finish is impressive.

Hi everyone, newbie here upgraded from pop up to a Tracer 230fbs (much easier on our old bones). We haven't been out yet but can't wait to try it out.

Hi from Gonzales. We've got a 230 also and are glad to see anther owner here - we were beginning to think we were the only ones. We love it and have spent around 20 nights in it so far. I'll try to post some pics soon (I know - no pics = it didn't happen) we're going to Tyler Tx this weekend so that will give me an excuse to take / post them.
Welcome to the forum!

Hello, we also went from a popup to a new Tracer230fbs. So far we've camped in it three nights. We love it!!! We're camping again this weekend and we don't even care that the weather may be crappy!

We just returned from a long 3 night, 4 day camping trip....the weather was terrible....a lot of wind, rain, cold and snow...and we had a great time! Just nice to get out with the trailer. In fact, our last night, we spent at the Brighton Recreation area campground...there are over one hundred sites and there was only one other camper. We had the place to ourselves...it was great!

What a warm welcome. Our last trip in our pop up was to Palmetto State Park.
We had a great time but decided to make life easier and up grade. Has anyone used their outdoor kitchen yet? That made the decision for us on the 230fbs.
Happy Camping

The 3.55 is usually matched to the 6.7L Diesel with 6-speed auto. That is the setup we have and we're very pleased with the performance. It towed the 295RST quite easily during our extensive test pull...

You'll be well within GVWR and GAWR specs either way. Good luck with your decision.
My 2012 6.7 has a 3.73 and the 6 speed auto

Glad to see several new Tracer 230FBS owners! We've taken 3 trips in ours since we bought it in March. We LOVE it! And we always have folks asking about the outdoor kitchen. Enjoy!

After a long 8 weeks of waiting we finally picked up our 2014 Crusader 295RST TE today. We have been getting everything packed into it so we'll be ready to take it out for the first time next weekend if the DH doesn't have to work.

Good choice. Bought ours on the 5th 295rst te champagne. See you have slide toppers. Did you get AE ? Our toppers get installed this week.
We love the floor plan.

Enjoy

We got the carefree toppers it's what the dealer carried and had in stock. They had to offset the one over the kitchen a couple of inches to the rear for the awning.

We traded our Tracer 2800RLD and pick up our new Crusader 290RLT on Friday. Dealer gave us almost what we paid for the Tracer, so was hard to resist. Our first trip out will be May 10th.
