Video Transcript for “2014 ReZerve Travel Trailer Features (Part 1 of 2)”
Chad: Hey, exciting day at Pete’s RV TV. Today we’re going to be looking at the brand new Crossroads product. This is the Rezerve.
Where this fits into the chain, this is a fiberglass sided trailer, but yet it comes in at metal sided trailer pricing. It’s very exciting, the fiberglass caps, seven foot ceilings.
We’re gonna catch up with my buddy, Randy Murray. He’s gonna take us through the insides and outsides of this Crossroads product and show us why this trailer might be the right one for your family.
I want to first start by introducing Randy Murray. A lot of videos, you guys have seen him out there. Randy is an expert when it comes to RV’s and that’s why we called upon him today here.
First thing, this is a 33BH by Rezerve. Exciting floor plan, it’s got a lot of cool stuff in it. Just the first thing I notice, solid surface counter tops all the way around here. Really nice, they put a little bowl nose around it as well.
Randy: It’s … great look. Lift one of these up too and show them that sink. I don’t know if Josh can pan in there, but, stainless steel sinks. So, no plastic, very residential. That’s gonna wear very well for us. Pretty excited about that.
Chad: Let’s get into the construction, let’s start there first. So we got a fiberglass skin on this trailer with aluminum studding through the sidewalls.
Randy: It is, it is. And … and I think you mentioned it in the intro, with that [inaudible 00:01:07] price.
Randy: So, that did … that’s just wonderful.
Seven foot interior ceilings.
Chad: Yep, plenty of height … ceiling height.
Randy: Six foot in the slide. And when you’re going … when I see a taller guy and I’m trying to sell him something, I don’t like to bring him in the travel trailers cause he’s usually dinging his head on the lights. Not the case in this camper. Great room inside, I really like it.
Chad: What are we using for flooring in this camper Randy?
Randy: This is gonna be a 5/8’s deck. It’s gonna be tongue and groove plywood. So, plenty of strength to last going down the road. It’s gonna wear very well for us and just a … a great way to do it.
Chad: Instead of using chip board like some of the manufacturers.
Randy: Absolutely right, yep.
Chad: Ceiling on this guys is 3/8’s decking on the ceiling as well. And we could …
Randy: Fully walkable, one piece rubber membrane for a roof, just like we’re gonna see on those more expensive campers out there. They didn’t skimp anywhere on that, so I love to see it.
Chad: Randy, take us through the slide area here a little bit. We got flush floor slides.
Randy: It’s a flush floor slide. While we’re talking about the floor on the slide, I want to talk about the floor through the body of the coach. They use max linoleum, so as much linoleum [00:02:00] as they can. Very easy to keep clean especially in a great bunk house unit like this guy here.
So, back to out flush floor slides. No bump, no step, this is gonna be a rack and pinion slide system. They’ve been out for a long, long time. They work very well, no issues with those. As we go … as we use them, they’ve … it’s been out a long time and we’ll see them used a lot in the industry.
Again, the height of our slides, cloth curtains. We’ve protected all the wh … string mechanism with the curtains here. Just a great look. Nice and easy to operate and we don’t get the venetian blinds banging around and making the noise as we walk around.
Chad: Can’t see in here. We have to keep the blinds closed while you’re vi … just for videoing here. But we have tinted safety glass on all the windows as well for protection of our fabrics, keeping it new.
For those who want to know, this is the chestnut interior color. That’s gonna be the darker leather look on here.
Randy: I tell you what, I really like this. I just watch somebody work and my hands get dirty. So, just knowing that we can clean these areas, it just … it makes it even better for me.
Look at the storage and that’s all plywood. Great place to store out heavy pots and pans as we’re going down the road. I like to bring cast iron with me to cook over those campfires. This will be a great place to put it and it’s not gonna mess up the drawers in the camper.
The other thing is outlets. As I look around this as we’re preparing for the video. Two outlets down here below this, we’ve got one by the TV, they’re just every where. And that’s not something we would typically see on our less expensive units. So, more outlets the better in my book.
Chad: You got it.
Real quickly too. A lot of storage in this 33BH model, this is wonderful here. We’re gonna kinda cut to the chase. We got a big bunk room back here that got … we’ll cat … maybe we’ll be able to catch this a little bit in another segment of the video, but … check out this door. They’ve encased the door. If you look up here we got nice header on it.
Randy: It’s got curvature to the wall. It’s just usually you don’t see doors on bunk house room, bunk houses because the wall is at an angle. The curve the wall and gave us a door, so the bunk house has privacy. Which is very important as we kids get a little bit older.
Chad: It’s part of that curtain rod.
Randy: Exactly right.
Chad: All kinds of pantry space in here. Really nice.
What do you got behind you there Randy?
Randy: Furnace and AC. So we got …
Chad: We can’t catch it from the video, you may have to move over.
Randy: Ducted air conditioner all the way through. We got a 25,000 BTU furnace in this guy [00:04:00] and it’s all controlled by one spot here. Coleman Mach is a big name in the industry when it comes to heating and cooling. That’s what we’re using in the Rezerve, I like to see it.
Chad: This one here has the island kitchen. It’s … so we’ve got another slide out over here on this side again, that same flush floor slide.
This does have a eight cubic foot fridge. You can get this with a six or and eight cubic foot. The six is three shelves here on the side and three shelves in here. The eight cubic foot, we go to four shelves, a little more storage. Bigger families, you probably want to upgrade to the eight every once in a while.
Randy: Another case of beer.
Chad: Another case of beer, yeah right. (laughs)
Chad: For those that drink. Microwaves.
A little bit too. Skylight, yep, exactly you pointed that out. It’s pretty cool.
Randy: Just gives us some natural light. Not all the time we’re gonna have all our lights on and stuff like that. When I’m out camping, I kinda like a little bit back to nature. The more natural light we can let it into a coach, the better. As you can see as Josh pans around here, look at all the windows and the size of the windows and then add that on top of that and it … it just gives it a nice feeling here.
Chad: We got a lot of people that ask us about warranty on RV’s and where do I get my trailer serviced? Do we bring it to you? Do we bring it to someone if we’re on vacation? How does that work?
RV’s come with a one year warranty from the manufacturer that covers about 99 percent of everything in the coach.
Randy: Sure does.
Chad: The vinyl flooring on this, it has a two year warranty against cold cracking. And then we’re also gonna have a 12 year warranty on this one piece rubber roof up there.
Randy: We absolutely are, we absolutely are. And any Crossroads dealer can provide warranty work for us on these pieces here.
Chad: Yep. So and … that’s … that’s another point thanks. So, if … if you’re in my local neighborhood and you got an issue, hey bring it on over. If you guys are camping in Fort Lauderdale on vacation, bring it to any Crossroads dealer. That can be a Sunset Trail. It can be a Rezerve. I mean they make more than a Hampton.
Randy: Any … anybody under that Crossroad umbrella. Absolutely.
Chad: Yeah. That’s what’s really nice about that. And so, that’s a one year, a two year and then a twelve year, fit and warranty on that.
Randy: And in the Rezerve as well, as I’ve mentioned a couple times throughout here. Norcold refrigerator, Coleman Mach. They’re using industry standard parts. They’re using the parts that we see throughout the industry that most dealers will stock. And not like some of the gypsy brands that’ll buy knock-offs and put them in there. And you can’t ever replace one part, you gotta replace the whole … the whole system. So, great stuff in here.
Chad: And that’s what … I think people when they start looking at [00:06:00] the Rezerve they’re gonna be confused. Cause the price is gonna be trimmed down a little bit. That they’re thinking that they’re not gonna get that …
Randy: You’re exactly right.
Chad: … high quality trailer. Yep. And that’s not the case at all in this.
From just the few things we’ve pointed out, just in this room alone and then I’ll point out a few more things too. And … and then we’ll skip outside. We’ve got things like spread axles. We’ve got things like electric awnings, outside kitchens.
Randy: Front cap.
Chad: A front cap.
Randy: Just lots of great features.
Chad: We’ll take them through that.
I want to show these guys the bunk room. I want to show them also the kit … the bathroom area. This has got a cool bathroom area as well.
Randy: Great, great new floor plan. And this floor plan came out last year and it’s just really killed it in the market. So they … they’ve … great representation here. Make sure you show them everything.
Chad: Yep, you’re good. I’ll catch up with you outside.
Chad: As I check out the other side. We’ve been filming the kitchen area, we just focused the camera this way. Nice rounded entertainment center. As you can see, this is where the TV would go. We’ve got cabinets above it. You can kind of see the roundness to it, if you look up top here how they round against the ceiling. It is a really sharp, sharp looking trailer.
[Mat 00:06:54] vinyl as Randy spoke about before. So we can just sweep it out at night. We’ve got 33 foot bunk house here and we’re cramped on space trying to show you all the videos. But we got the bathroom in here, it’s got a real hardwood door on it. A glass shower which you can’t see.
This is the master bedroom up front here with a hardwood door on it as well. No curtain here. This bathroom actually has a second door to it so we can scoot right back around in here in the bedroom so you don’t have to get up and change at night. If you have family over, you can just scoot through. But it has a hardwood door that closes that off as well, so.
Big bed up here, 74 by 8, wha … excuse me, 60 by 74 sized mattress on there, just to start. Really cool here.
Let’s check out that back bunk room in the rear and then we’ll catch up with Randy.
In the back room, there’s plenty of sleeping for everybody. We have four separate sleeping spots. We’ve got the one over here on the right … my right, your left. This holds 300 pounds, you can see the sticker here. They do it by using better construction. They put aluminum backers into the sidewall when they build the frame of this trailer. Allows them to use better quality construction.
We focus on the other side over here. We’ve got a sofa, which is really cool that makes into a bed. Then we also got the bunk bed that pulls out underneath, so we got three beds total [00:08:00] because this one drops down as well. And that holds 300 pounds too. Plenty of sleeping for the whole family back here.
And best yet, we even have storage for all your clothes and you don’t find that in a lot of bunk bed trailers. They don’t have any clothes storage. You know, we’ve even got a built in ladder here that’ll take you up to that top bunk.
Let’s catch up with Randy and we’ll check out some of the cool features on the outside too.
And don’t forget, Pete’s RV Center, it stocks hundreds of trailers … thousand trailers actually. So if you’re looking for the best pricing, Pete’s RV Center’s the place for you.
Let’s go catch up with Randy.

Video Transcript for “2014 ReZerve Travel Trailer Features (Part 2 of 2)”
Chad: The ReZerve is an awesome looking unit, not only on the inside but the outside as well here (banging). One piece fiberglass cap on the front. It’s hard to catch it from this shot because we’re at an RV show here, but there’s no seams on the front of this camper. You can see where they wrap it over and seam it on the side, so we don’t have to worry about rain or wind or rocks kicking up and hurting this front cab. The seam’s all the way over on the side.
We’ve got the bigger 30 pound propane tanks on the front with a nice cover, full size frame here, too. We’re not knocking down, we’re using the full size frame on this.
Chad: Randy, tell us a little bit more here (banging). We’ve got some aluminum studding that we have built into this trailer. So this is aluminum studding in this side wall.
Randy: It is, it is. Sixteen on center in most cases. Again fiberglass on the outside. Super easy to keep clean. I don’t know, Josh, if you can point up there, it’s got the gutter extension no it. That’s going to keep as much water off the side of the coach, keep the black streaks down and keep it away from our seal here on our front cap, so great way to do it.
Chad: Josh, see if you can fil-, zoom in here. We’ve got, you can see this aluminum studding. That’s the same aluminum studding that they use in the side well as well, here, we talk about that. I want you to go back up to that, that drip point, again, Josh. We’ve got (banging) three inches of overlap on that roof up there (banging) and what’s nice about that is we don’t have any seams on the top of the roof where it holds the water tight up there. So water’s w- … This has an arched roof on the top. Here (banging) we’ve got six inches on center, rotating down. It’s going to run that water right over the roof here (banging) and nothing’s butting up against that seam.
Randy: Absolutely, absolutely. Another great feature is the electric awning on this guy, and as Crossroads standards, we’ve got LED lighting throughout the roller tube.
Chad: Really cool.
Randy: Yeah, it looks, it looks great. It lights it up, we don’t need to have the Budweiser cans hanging off. It’s switched from the inside. It rolls right up and it’s protected when we’ve got the awning away, and it’s also got the dump feature on it so if there’s water that gets up in here, if we get a late rain or what have you, it will dump and shed that water for us and then go right back so we won’t stretch our fabric.
Chad: Dude, don’t lie …
Randy: [inaudible 00:01:52]
Chad: You still can put Budweiser lights on this (banging), (laughing).
Randy: You still can put Budweiser lights on it (laughing).
Chad: We’ve got stabilizers here on each corner of the trailer as well [00:02:00], and that will keep the trailer stable while we’re walking around on the inside. Tinted safety glass on all the windows, and that’s just number one a safety feature but the advantage of it too is it keeps the fabrics looking nicer on the inside longer.
Randy: Dude, it looks cool inside. It protects the UV so it keeps that UV down to keep it a little bit cooler inside if we’re trying to shed that heat on a hot day.
Chad: Yep. Outside speakers here, right above your head, built into the coach (clapping). They’re not the ones that protrude out the outside, they’re actually countersunk into the side wall.
Randy: Absolutely. Just a nice clean look. Thirty inch wide door. As I’m getting older, I’m getting a little wider, so I like these wide doors and what they bring to the table, especially if I’ve got some groceries in my hand.
Chad: Rounded corners up there too, it’s keeps …
Randy: It’s not going to go against our awning fabric. It’s not going to hurt that fabric at all. Large grab handle.
Randy: It may seem, like, trivial but when you add them all up it just makes for a better coach, a lot more usable for me and whoever’s going to be purchasing it.
Chad: Yep. Three stairs going up in and out. A lot of them you see only got two stairs.
Randy: Exactly right, exactly right. Notice, I don’t know, Josh if you can get it in the shot, but we’ve got a spread axle on this guy, so that’s going to put more weight down to the road rather than having it on the back bumper of our truck. It’s going to make it go down the road better for us and it’s also going to help out with sway in conjunction with a good weight distribution system. So just a great way to do it. I love to see it on the ReZerve.
Chad: Yep, great radial tires to boot on that.
Randy: Nitrogen filled.
Chad: Nitrogen filled as well.
Randy: And a lot of people don’t know what nitrogen is, real quick, it, air leaks over a long period of time sitting around. Nitrogen does not so it’s, when you go to hook the back up to this guy chances of having a soft tire are going to be less than if they were filled with air.
Chad: Yep, and Randy is right. The reason we point out all these little, I don’t want to say knick-knacks, look at all these great features is because we’re at a price point here where people think they’re getting stripped down product but with our pricing discount that Crossroads gives Pete’s RV Center and the discounts that we can pass along to you, you’re actually getting a good quality, high quality trailer …
Randy: Lots of amenities.
Chad: [inaudible 00:03:48].
Randy: [inaudible 00:03:49] pricing, you’re exactly right.
Chad: This one has a cool outside fridge, outsi-, excuse me, outside kitchen. Me and Randy are going to go take another shot and that will be the end of this, but I want to show you the guys that outside kitchen before we go (banging), because this is the 33 V8 [00:04:00], and this is their most popular floor plan, so let’s take a look at that before we head out.
The outside kitchen on the ReZerve is really cool. We’ve got a one piece strutted door that holds this up so if we are getting any rain or anything we’ve got a built in awning on this.
Randy: Absolutely, and that puts more of our awning forward on this usable side of the coach, too, so great way to do it.
Chad: Yep. Outside fridge.
Randy: 4.2, electric, great place to keep the kids beverages and the adult beverages after they go to sleep, so just, just real nice feature out here.
Chad: It’s black, too. It looks nice in here. We’ve got that same high quality cabinetry that we had on the inside, plenty of storage …
Randy: Con- …
Chad: Chips, paper plates, anything you like out here. Hot/cold running water.
Randy: Don’t have that in every unit. It’s nice to have out here as we’re cooking and things like that, especially if we’ve got some sauces going or some barbecue going. We’ve got a place to plug in LP underneath, so if you’ve got an external gas grill and you don’t want to bring a bottle with you, you can plug into low pressure right there, nice way to do it. And of course our rear jack in the back is going to give us our stability that we talked about earlier.
Chad: Yep, so Pete’s RV Center, guys. Just so you know, we sell thousand, we sell, we sell a lot of units. We stock a thousand units. We sell a lot of units. We’re getting the best rebates from every manufacturer. If you don’t call us for your next trailer and get a quote you’re going to pay too much. So visit us at petesrv.com, or check in with me and Randy any time, we’d be glad to help you, not only with campers but towing questions as well. (Background talking 00:05:11). Thanks for visiting Pete’s RV TV today.
