We used this RV for about 40 days every year since 2019. We loved the floor plan and the liveability. Like other travel trailers you need to be a good handy man to resolve some annoying issues like, fixing the caulking around the shower door, re-aligned and resealed the shower drain with the ABS pipe under the shower base, replace the city water inlet (luckily it broke during set up at camping site), re-fixed all wooden center panel cabinet (not enough glue) and you must use water pressure regulator to avoid the toilet water valve leaking. Finally, the original tires on the RV were good for only 4 years (less than 5000 miles), that’s a little bit disappointing. Despite these annoying issues we still like it.

Love the livable space but have been in it for a little over a year and already have to replace the plastic toilet because it has a crack in the back side that leaks. Oh no shut off valve for the water to the toilet or outside kitchen so have to shut off all water. The cupboards are falling apart and trim is sagging. You get what you pay for with affordable trailers I guess. My next one will not be with this company for sure

The RV has a great lay out but the workmanship is crap. This is the 3 trailer I have owned and the worst in quality. Every time we have used it some issue. 1) The main door steps were so out of square the door did not close completly you can see light on the bottom. The striker plate had to be shimmed out with 3 cut washers so it would latch. I had to take out the steps and put them in square, and then I was able to remove the washer shims. 2) The sliding king bed plastic rails were also put in out of square, so that when you would move it to on side it would pop out and when you got to the camp ground the cabinet was the only thing that kept it from falling off. 3) The cabinet door on the bottom were so out of square they would not close needed to drill new holes. 4) Water line at the pump leaked because the clamps were not tight. 5) One of the angles that holds the fresh water tank broke loose because the self drilling screws were not alinged with the cross member. Had to drain the tank till I got to a place where I could fix it. 6) The front, left side storage door would come open because in too was put in out of alingment. Had to remove the stop screw and adjust. 7) The stablizer jack breaker was install with only one screw, so when it was tightned, it moved so close to the hot terminal in the rain it burned out. Had to replace and installed it correctly. My worst trailer ever.

We had purchased our RV shadow cruiser at bluedog rv in Troutdale ,oregon . I will start out saying it was the best service upfront me and my wife has ever had. Once we took it off the lot thats when it all went to crap. We had purchased our rv becuase i am disabled and it has everything that i need for me to be able to go camping. We started having problems with alot of basic little items like trim that was not tack up correctly our have of the trim not tacked at all, then parts of the wall was not properly tacked up as well, the bed was broke and slide back and forth, screws where stripped on the outside so I had to redo about half of them with bigger screws and I silicone them as to not have any problems.when we took it in to have the warranty work done they where nice upfront But they never completed there work and they left the trailor a mess and we also had grease hand prints all over inside the trailor.not once did they ever call use our return any calls as promised. We where the ones that had to call them to find out how things where going. Finally after talking to the finance manager, then the cruiser rep, we call the manufacturer in Idaho where the trailor was made. The are going to have to take it back to the factory to remove the hole side wall because the welds did not hold and the side wall and the back wall of the trailor is separating. The only person that ever returned our call and was able to help use was Ryan at Cruiser RV. IN Idaho. We have used our trailor one time for 5 days and it has been getting stuff fixed in it every since. We have currently had the trailor for three month's. It's will be at least another 2 our 3 months before we will be getting our trailor back from the cruiser rv factory in Idaho. This is where the trailor was originally made. This has been the WORST experience we have ever had after purchasing a RV.

Love the layout of the travel , but workmanship in trailer very poor. We have written cruiser rv about the sawdust on the bed and floors every time we stop, and never received an answer. Now every time we stop we find nails and screws and sawdust on floor an bed, don’t know where they are from. We constantly have water on our bathroom floor, we checked the water lines and everything seems fine, and our bathroom cabinet is all bubbled at the bottom, we even removed the access panel for cleaning up the water. Every time we open the door under the table bench the trim come apart. We bought this trailer in April 2022.
