Default Finally, saw another Fun Finder

Just returned from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and for the first time, I saw another XT276. It was parked in a mall parking lot at the time.

It is the first and only Fun Finder I've seen since buying my last spring.

I know what you mean....we bought a Shadow Cruiser last August and hadn't seen another one until just the weekend before last. We traveled from Pa to Natural Bridge Va for a long weekend and when we pulled into our site there was another Shadow Cruiser across the road from us! Not the same model as ours but nice to see another one.

So funny last summer when we bought ours we never saw another Shadow Cruiser but since Spring there are now 2 others parked in our small RV storage lot.

We had our xt275 or a little over a year. We bought it in the spring of 2010. Cruiser RV was just starting to make a name for themselves. We live in FL and I had to travel to VA to get ours. Today there is only 1 or 2 cruise dealers in FL. I know one dealer had them for a year then dropped the line. I don't think enough dealers want to carry cruiser for some reason thus the lack of them on the road. I know there are two other manufactures that offer the same identical floor plans like the 275 and 276. One brand is MXT which is I think a Forrest river. I think the big boys like keystone, jayco and Forrest river still have the market cornered

You are correct.

Default We saw other Fun Finders

We just returned from a 1500 mile camping tour in ND. We took the trip in part to look at the oil boom development and the International Peace Gardens. We saw 4 or 5 other Fun Finders during our trip. Also, the Peace Gardens were great and the oil development is really something to see.

I know what you mean.
I live in Alberta Canada. I see a lot of Funfinders but dont see a lot of ShadowCruisers.
I had to laugh the other week though. I stopped in at the dealer to get some additional gear and noticed a 2013 version of my model.
So went over to have a look as i liked the new paint on the nose.
The new owner was there taking delivery so we got the chance to have a chat. Turns out he bought the unit at that dealer based on comments i had make on this website!
Small world AND one more Shadow cruiser in the hood!
