I am looking at a 2011 funfinder-X 244RBS made by cruiser can anyone share info on build quality or durability of this unit seems to be very clean and garaged but I never owner a TT before and this one is just 4500# which I like. Any info would be appreciated.
I have a Cruiser 280qbs, a 2012 (listed as both 2011 and 2012. I've been really pretty impressed with the overall quality, and their willingness to stand by it. The main issues I've had are with ancillary stuff like the quality of their rvq (not by them), and I had an axle issue that they took care of.
Most of the quality issues that I see aren't really quality, but something that goes along with trying to keep the weight down, the materials are not heavy duty for sure, but I really like my 280qbs. Due to some lifestyle changes, we're actually going to sell this one when we get back home, but barring that, I would have kept it for a long time.
I'm 6', and the bed is actually too small for too many nights, so something to keep in mind if you haven't with these lightweight trailers.

Thanks so much for the input and did notice the bed which at the foot is a wall divider where to t.v. is mounted which swivels from bedroom to living room. Did you mention issues with the axles?
The axles on mine were part of a "silent" recall. It was told to me that Lippert had some bad steel, but I think it's more likely they just under-rated the axles for the trailer, they were light weight ones. Mine bent, and ruined all 4 tires on a trip. Cruiser/Lippert totally took care of it though, and I got all brand new HD axles and new tires, so I was happy.
Mine was made in late spring of 2011. You might check to see how many trips that trailer has, and maybe even contact cruiser with the VIN to see if it's one from that batch. We did a trip to the East Coast and back, and didn't see it until we got close to home, which would have been 5000 miles or so.
I came very close to purchasing a Viewfinder but the bed being too short was a deal breaker for me...I'm 6'3" and a short queen just wasn't going to cut it. Ended up with the same floor plan on an Everlite and have been extremely happy with our choice.
Cruiser is a well respected company with many years of satisfied customers...I wouldn't be afraid to buy their products.

I have a 2007 FF189 made by Cruiser. If you can fix the small stuff,you will be ok.Remember 0n July 1 2012,the cruiser will be 2 years old .It will have a warranty only if bought new.Also the WFCO converter is only marginal for charging batts,mine only will go to 13.6,never to boost,14.4..The outside RVQ is not that good and the outside shower hose fitting wont stay on.

Agreed on the RVQ, I'm actually trying to see if I can get a 2nd one under warranty. After about 40 days in use, it looks worse than my 8 year old home grill. Granted, huge price difference, but still, the grill has not held up well at all.
