If you like a lot of choices, Prime Time Manufacturing’s Crusader and Crusader Lite fifth-wheel lines will give you just that.
There are two distinct products in the Crusader line: the full-size Crusader, and the Crusader Lite, which is the company’s smallest and lightest fifth-wheel. The Crusaders feature contemporary interiors with residential touches such as stainless-steel appliances, Shaker-style interior doors, Furrion stereos and speakers, and modern bedspreads and window treatments.
Seven floorplans are available in the Lite line. Exterior lengths start at 29 feet for the 26RE, with an unloaded vehicle weight of 7,282 pounds, and go up to 38 feet. All have solid-wood-core cabinets, a residential-size shower with glass doors, a double-bowl kitchen sink with a high-rise metal faucet, a queen walk-around bed with nightstands on each side and a 60-gallon freshwater tank.
The Crusader, the company’s flagship RV, is offered in 10 floorplans, two that are new for 2018. The 42-foot 381MBH and 382MBH both have a bunk room with a loft and four slides, one housing the queen bed (king optional), kitchen island and outdoor kitchen. The 381MBH is standard-equipped with a 20-cubic-foot residential refrigerator.
Said Product Manager Paul Morrison, “We’ve added some really impressive features to complement our redesigned contemporary interiors. MORryde’s StepAbove Zero Gravity entry steps and Furrion’s residential cooktop and oven highlight the numerous improvements we’ve made.”
Base MSRP for the Crusader is $40,000 to $54,000, and $34,000 to 45,000 for the Crusader Lite.
