been looking at this model

http://crossroadsrv.com/model/cruiser/CF365BL

The loft works for us because our kiddos are young/small.  Also, 2 major things we wanted was enough seating in living and king size walk around bed.  This has both, good price point, and is relatively light compared to other models.

At any rate, after towing a fifth wheel recently, enjoyed the experience so much started thinking about one for myself.

We have 4 kids as well and our OR is fantastic for our family.  Tons of room, great bathroom and it is shorter than that Chaparral by around 4'.   That coach is one long unit at 41'9"!  For the places we go. I am often wishing that ours was 6-7' shorter than it is.  Having said that - we have on several occasions slept 10-11 in our rig so that space has come in handy.

After our visit with our Diesel Pusher, I'm speculating that Clarkley is out of the 5er market and into to the Diesel pusher market. When we left his house he was seen on his computer looking at $1.8 million Prevost.  One of my snochicken relatives heard from a friend of an uncle's brother''s mother-in-laws second cousin's neighbors daughter that both Clarkely and Willy Paul are in a bidding war on this coach and they are upwards of $2.6 Million!   :popcorn:  But you didn't hear that from me.  :dreaming:
