our new to shadow cruiser.
Well, let me introduce my self a bit here, I'am from Central Alberta Canada, my name is Menno, and have a beautyfull wife and a chocolate lab.
We just did the downsizing thing went from a 26' flagstaff fifthwheel coupled to a 03 GMC crewcab with a thirsty 6 L engine, which we sold and in return we got a 08Jeep grand Cherokee with a 3.0L Diesel coupled to a 2010 Shadowcruiser 195WBS.
We just purchased the Shadow cruiser 3 days ago so we haven't even taken it on a maiden voyage yet.
The trailer is used and got it from an older couple and due to health reasons were unable to use it.We had been searching for some time and to find used smaller trailers are hard to come by and we didn't want a brand new one with payments , so the shadow cruiser fit our bill. we like the layout and the features it has.
One thing that did disapoint me was that I was looking for the DSI hot water tank switch all over the place but could find one , so lone and behold it still has the old fashioned pilot style hot water heater, (thought that all new trailers now a days would come with DSI heater) But I can live with that.
last night I hooked up to our jeep GC (former owner deliverd it to my house) The water tank was still full and I took it on the freeway, and over a big hill, boy was I surprised how well the jeep pulled that trailer up the hill, 120Km/Hr no problem so I think all and all this will be a good fit. and hope fully all the bad kinks have been worked out by the former owner, cause when I read some of the other posts on here from some other members it doesn't sound good.
but when I read on other RV forums there are some big expensive RV's on there that have big issues as well so, i keep thinking it is not just cruiser RV.
Our flagstaff had issues as well, where the exterior screws kept on ratteling out, or the water tank fill hose disconected from the water tank and one would have to remove the whole enclosed under belly to get to it.
So all Rv's have their quirks.
I hope to share stories, reapairs, and issues on this forum.
