Cruise lite reliability

I have made an offer on a lightly used 2012 261bhxl camper. It has been garage kept and seems to be in mint condition. This will be our first TT and I'm trying to keep initial costs to start camping as a family low till we see how often we will go and how much we enjoy it. I know this is an entry level camper but it has everything we need to start.

Iíd like to hear from some of you that are familiar with this camper as to reliability if well maintained? Are there common defects w this year model or model that i need to look for specifically?

Mine has been great. Only problem has been the switches for the stabilizing jacks.

We bought a 261bhxl back in may of this year. We ended up going with a new one, so I'm not sure what, if any, changes have been made, but we love ours. We have a family of 5, and it suits us perfectly. We'll need to upgrade in the future when the kids get older, but we figured that when we got it.

So far we've had no major issues.
