Looking at travel trailers with a 2nd bedroom and preferably 1.5 baths. We looked at a 2020 Crossroads Zinger 333DB today and the wife loved it. My concern is that I've never heard of them and I question the quality. A quick internet search brings up bad reviews but searching any camper manufacturer does the same. Should I steer clear or are they of good quality?

Thirty-eight feet and 8200 pounds DRY is a heck of a travel trailer if you’re new to towing.

this may not be relevant since our was so much older, but we had a 2010 26BBHS Zinger for 8 years the only problem we had was a faulty toilet flush valve. That was in the first year and they sent me a new one to install; after that we didn't have a single issue with anything for the remainder of the time we owned it. We put probably 3-4000 miles on it each year and it treated us well.

We just traded a 2012. No problems at all. They may be manufactured differently (Cheaper) now. Probably no different than most.

I believe that Crossroads quality runs hot and cold so the trick is finding a good run. And, once someone has a bad experience, that brand will never be good again. That's me with our 2005 Zinger. The gas line was run through the spring hangers and got pounded flatter every time we hit a bump. Nobody believed it until they saw the trailer, then Crossroads issued a recall for every trailer built that day. The refrigerator was supported in the back by a #10 screw into the 3/32" paneling, of course where you couldn't see it. but after a few years of bumps, the wall started buckling as the fridge platform sunk down. The windows used that wrong type of seal and continuously leaked. After 8 years, when we sold it with a rotten floor from the leaking windows, all the appliances still worked fine. We replaced it with a Puma from a dealer that sold both. He told us we made a better choice and that the Puma would weigh more for the same exact floor plan indicating stronger construction. Observing the Puma, I would agree that it was well built. So, after our experience with Crossroads, I wouldn't touch them with a 10 mile pole. Others may have done just fine.

I own a different Crossroads model, but I follow a Crossroads Owner group on Facebook and the Zinger owners seem to be almost cult-like in their glee for that product line. It's interesting to watch.

We absolutely love our Elevation toy hauler, but nowhere near cult-like love from us. We've had a lot of trouble and it took us years to work through all of the warranty issues. Most of the issues were design flaws and proof that they really weren't ready to enter the market to build toy haulers.

Summary: I don't have any experience with the Zinger line, but I (A) love my Crossroads Elevation and (B) can't believe how many happy Zinger owners I've seen online.
