CrossRoads RV Introduces Front Cap Slide

Topeka, Indiana-based CrossRoads RV, Inc. announced Friday (November 18) it has redefined the lightweight fifth-wheel market with its Sunset Trail line featuring an innovative front cap slide-out system.

“We have packed the Sunset Trail fifth wheel with many new innovative features,” said Dave Boggs, director of marketing. “The models lengths start at 25 feet, have full depth slide-outs, and weigh around 7,500 pounds true weight. These lightweight fifth wheel units are equipped with many standard features and industry firsts.”

The Sunset Trail fifth-wheel will debut at the 49th Annual National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky, that runs from November 29 to December 1 at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC).

“The lightweight division continues to offer the RV industry innovative firsts,” said Product Manager John Fisher. “We have made large strides in the lightweight towable market and we will keep this momentum going in 2012. As we introduce our new Sunset Trail fifth-wheel line, we are excited to see the dealer response to the patent-pending BOSS front cap slide system technology which provides more livable space and a roomier interior without the ‘feel’ of towing a larger, heavy unit.”

Standard features include:

  • Industry first front cap slide-out with patent pending Bi-lateral Operating Slide-out System (BOSS)
  • Barreled ceilings in a fifth-wheel with an interior height of 8 feet 3 inches
  • Aerodynamic front cap with 8-foot LED strip lighting
  • 90-degree turning radius
  • 33 percent larger windows with automotive trim seal
  • Residential interiors with solid surface counter tops

Worth Pondering…

When I was very young and the urge to be someplace was on me, I was assured by mature people that maturity would cure this itch. When years described me as mature, the remedy prescribed was middle age. In middle age I was assured that greater age would calm my fever and now that I am fifty-eight perhaps senility will do the job. Nothing has worked… In other words, I don’t improve, in further words, once a bum always a bum. I fear the disease is incurable.
