Wakarusa, Indiana-based Prime Time Manufacturing announced the introduction of its new Crusader Lite half-ton series fifth-wheel line.
“The Crusader Lite has been engineered to be the smallest and lightest fifth-wheel ever offered from Prime Time. Our product team has worked hard to help create a super light, fully-featured fifth-wheel that has dazzling looks,” said Jeff Wagner, product manager for Crusader.
“Even though our current Crusader is retailing well for our dealers, we recognized an additional opportunity to better meet the growing customer demand for lighter weight and more affordable fifth wheels.”
Prime Time is in full production with the new product and units have started to arrive at many dealer locations.
Three Way Campers of Marietta, Georgia, received one of the first Crusader Lite 28RL models.
“The all-new Crusader Lite arrived with an easy-to-tow weight, has awesome eye appeal, and is priced exactly where it needs to be,” said Owner David Porter.
“After we received our first 28RL, we sold it in only a matter of hours.”
The Crusader Lite features champagne high-gloss fiberglass, aerodynamic Super-Turn colored front cap, LED lighted awning, and large pass-through storage on the exterior.
The interior offers upgraded residential furniture, LED ceiling lights, residential sized showers, designer window treatment, and abundant kitchen storage.
Crusader Lite has a base MSRP of $38,900.

“Get your motor runnin’ Head out on the highway Lookin’ for adventure And whatever comes our way Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen Take the world in a love embrace Fire all of your guns at once And explode into space.” It could be the theme song of every RVer, though it’s not likely what Steppenwolf had in mind when they recorded Born to be Wild in 1968.
