hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here at American RV and gorgeous Grand Rapids Michigan today. I'm here to tell you all about the 2017 vintage cruiser 23 RS s this is a great smaller travel trailer as you can tell it has the vintage look, but it has all the modern amenities including a slide this is one of the only old-style looking trailers with a slide. So, why don't you go ahead and take a tour with me here we'll start up front make our way around and then we'll head on in right up front here is the power tongue jack this does make it nice and easy to hook up and disconnect from your tow vehicle all.
I have to do is just touch a, button that will raise and lower your tongue also there is a light right up front here so, if you're hooking up a disconnecting it light at night you can go ahead and turn that on that will just give you some added visibility right behind that's a propane tank cover very easy to access the tanks just undo your two thumb screws right here lift up the door and that will give you access to your 220 pound tanks then behind the propane tank cover we have rails for the battery, if you take a look right under nay underneath that you'll see a tube that is for your sewer hose this unit doesn't have a traditional bumper where you would store it. So, instead they went ahead mounted it right up here for you also you'll see diamond plating coming right up the front that helps protect the front end from any rocks or debris that get thrown up by your tow vehicle the cool thing about this too this fiberglass right here's the one-piece fiberglass roof this piece goes up and all the way over the roof and then back down. So, the big advantage of that there's a couple different things one it's less chance for any kind of water intrusion because there are less seams you know the more seams and holes you put in the roof the more things you have to try to protect from against from water getting in, but also the natural curvature of it.
I mean, if you can see it naturally kind of curves. So, the rot water is going to run to the front and back rather than right down on your campsite and again because there's less seems less chance for water intrusion definitely a big advantage on the far side there you also see an additional light. So, again, if you are coming over disconnecting at night you can use that as well coming around to the side here when the first things you'll notice again as.
I said this may look it has that vintage look, but it has the modern amenities you can see right there it is prepped for exam solar so, if you do want solar you can go ahead and buy the panel's plug it in it's all hooked up. So, it will start to trickle charge your battery the past two you'll notice the hinge is covered on here which is nice you don't get rust coming all down your door slam latch baggage doors and it's also magnetic. So, very easy to put it up just like that that way you can go ahead and access your compartment inside you can take a look in there you see it is nice and large so, if you do have some bigger items you have to stuff in here like a grill you can go ahead and fit it right in there power awning on here.
So, again you know older look not only do you have a power tongue jack you have a power awning this makes things extremely easy for setting up it's not like your bag awning like you see on a lot of the older style ones. So, this you just touch a, button it rolls out same thing to roll back in you can notice the LED light strip underneath. So, you don't have to get up there and hang up Christmas lights it already comes with them and right in the head to the awning are your speakers.
So, just as the cool thing about that is when your awning is extended the speakers will be playing music down on your campsite instead of blasting out at your neighbor now those are controlled by the multimedia Center inside hover is bluetooth capable. So, what you can do is use your smartphone or tablet go ahead and connect your multimedia Center via bluetooth sit right out here underneath your awning and be able to control your music from your cellular device right here this is your bracket for a TV. So, the way this one works inside you'll see more of these brackets that way you can move the TV anywhere.
So, you can go ahead and take the TV out bring it right outside here drop it in this bracket and now you can watch TV while you're outside when you're done take it off bring it right back in. So, you can watch movie before bed or whatever else you want to do, but that just gives you a lot of versatility there also you'll see your TV hookups you have your cable antenna right there electrical outlet that way can plug the TV in or whatever else seem to plug in, if you need to you know plug in a toaster electric griddle whatever you want for cooking breakfast out here you can go ahead and use it for that as well take a look at the the rims on here. I think this is really cool you know they made it color match again kind of help it and give it that old look it's also the nitrogen-filled tires and you'll see right in between you also have the equal flex suspension in there which helps take a lot of the you know a lot of the potholes and stuff out gives it a smoother ride you'll notice this one is also a double axle it's not a single axle meaning you'll get a better toe with this unit as well let's go ahead and come around to the back here you can see now getting into the coach is nice and easy you only have one step, but that's really all you need it's a low-profile coach built that way it's lightweight you know and.
So, the the keeping it lower profile means less resistance from wind making it easier to tow here is obviously the back of the camper you do have a window on the back. I really like that now that means it lets in a lot of natural light, but, if you do have a really nice view out the back, if you're able to you know back into lake front or ocean view you are easily able to enjoy that also again, if you take a look at the roof you can see how there aren't any seams it just rolls right down this is the same piece that is on the roof and on the front. So, really neat.
So, coming on to the off door side a couple quick things as. I mentioned right here is your slide how cool is that a vintage trailer with the slide really opens it up we'll see that more when we go inside detachable 30 amp power cord right here detachable power cords are nice because you don't have a big hole in your unit you know where you have to stick your record. So, less chance for any kind of mice and answer anything to crawl up in there also cable and satellite hookups here and then in front of the slide you have a spray port and a black tank flush as well alright.
I know it's great on the outside let's go take a look at the inside go to the inside of the 2017 vintage Cruiser twenty-three RSS this particular model is in the turquoise interior as you can see it is nice and spacious in here that is due to a slide-out again you don't see that you have the vintage look with a slide out and that's the thing. I love about the vintage cruiser series is you have all the modern amenities let's go ahead and start off right over here in the kitchen though not a huge countertop, but they did utilize it to the best by giving you both a cooktop cover and dual sink top covers you'll see the cooktop cover here does it does fold up lifts up you have a three burner cooktop there stainless steel top stainless steel copper stainless front just gives it a really great look also, if you do want to do any kind of baking you can see you have the oven there in which you can do. So, both these sink top covers are cutting board quality so, if you want to flip them over to use them as a cutting board you can certainly do.
So, and then just flip them back when you're done the reason. I say to flip them over is because that way all your top marks and everything around the bottom. So, when you put it back it still looks like it's brand new, but double bowl sink does make it nice and easy to wash or rinse any dishes their large bowl on the Left smaller one here on the right and the high rise faucet aids in doing dishes as well underneath here you see two full extension drawers there which is nice.
So, that way you have spot for your silverware some of your larger items can go down here, if you have spatulas and again other larger serving utensils window right here is nice too and lets in a lot of natural light during the day then at night you'll see you have LED light. I actually LED lights throughout LED lights are great because they use a fraction the power and don't put out near the heat stainless steel cooktop up here as well with both the light and a fan on it microwave right up top and then good storage over here to the side as we make our way back a little bit to the back here you'll see this unit is a rear dinette which is great. I really kind of like rear dinette because you can see you have windows all around and as.
I mentioned, if you do have the nice view out the back this is perfect you can sit here you know enjoy your breakfast have a morning cup of coffee, but look out the back and really truly enjoy that you'll see the you know kind of the look they have here with like the postcards going all the way around. I think that's kind of cool too we'll see that as we go throughout the camper good storage up top here you can take a look right there the other thing. I like is that this these are wide doors up here which is nice so, if you have bigger items like boardgames.
I print like to bring a lot of board games when. I camp you know it is big enough to you can go ahead and fit those in there then right in the center here is the multimedia Center as. I did mention earlier this unit controls the speakers outside it's also Radio CD and DVD player so, if you do want to watch a movie can pop it in right here and.
I'll show you a little bit later you can see the connections over there by the TV lights right up top and then this time that does drop down into a bed so, if you do an additional sleeping space you'll see the rails right along here table drops down it can sit right on top there and that way it will create the extra bed space also, if you notice underneath you can see an electrical outlet so, if you need to do any kind of working to plug in a tablet or laptop you can go ahead and do. So, while sitting at the dinette now right over here this is what makes the 23 RSS what it is and that is you get the slide out. So, an awesome sofa slide out here gives you another place to sit which.
I really enjoy you know because, if you do have any guests over you have extra place they can set another place to sit and relax which is great and this also become sleeping space this is a jackknife sofa. So, it just lifts up drops right down just like so. I know it's not a huge bed it's not very long.
So, you know, if you're an adult you're practical up into a ball, but it is a great space for kids, if you have a dog that comes with in you want a dog bed makes a great dog bed or, if you have a pack and play, if you have really little ones you can set a pack and play up on here too so. I love having this extra space the extra like to the extra seating area and, if nothing else again you know having the slide come out giving you the extra space in here definitely makes it worth it also you'll see the additional storage in the corners right up here. So, a nice little extra storage compartment there then over here as.
I mentioned this is your TV. So, here's your connections your audio/video connections which hook up into the DVD player of course TV and satellite hookups there and then electrical outlet and then this. So, this whole a swing arm comes right out this is what.
I was talking about that you can take this outside. So, the TV's on here you just lift it right up and out take this whole thing outside this goes into the same bracket that is outside you'll see a couple of these there's one here one outside there's also one in the bedroom. So, really neat system that gives you a lot of versatility now the last part of the kitchen is right over here this is the fridge freezer combo again it has the turquoise panels on there which i think is really cool, but you can take a look right in there plenty of space you know six cubic foot you can see the cutout there this unit does run off both propane and electric and also has automatic switch over so, if you are running it off propane as soon as you plug that in a short power it'll automatically switch it over to electric for you saving you on the propane gas now as we step back we come into the bathroom one quick thing.
I want to show you though that's really neat for extra privacy you have a curtain right here that closes off into the bedroom, but also this door opens all the way up and there's a lot here. So, that way you can't get in. So, that definitely provides some extra privacy in the bathroom space which is really neat as we come on in, if you take and take a look right over here you see mirrored medicine cabinet right down below here is the sink some extra storage there underneath as well the other half of our bathroom you'll notice right here is the toilet comfort height.
So, it is nice and easy to get on and off and then right up top you'll notice you also have a larger than normal fan over to the side big skylight up on top of the shower curved shower bar as well which is great makes it feel nice and spacious you'll see you have some shelving here in the shower hand wand and. I like the fact it's a tub so, if you do have kids it's nice and easy to go ahead and give them a bath, if they're not quite old enough for a shower yet then as you move into the bedroom space this is your queen bed again the bedspread here kind of matches the the walls just cool has a postcard look and then take a look at this large easy access storage underneath you can see it is on struts your freshwater tank is in here this is for your spray poured outside the other cool thing is your spare tire is actually mounted right there. So, that way it is extremely easy to access you know that, if you ever do have to use it it's in good shape it's not outside getting beat up by the elements so.
I do like the fact that they put that in there then this bed is nice and comfortable you can see you know it's not super stiff like a lot of beds. So, you you know will get a decent night's sleep on here which is cool you know, if you want to stay up and read a book at night you can certainly do that as well you can see the reading lights here they have two modes you can either have it as a reading light like it is right now or, if you look at what's the other one you'll see it is kind of a blue accent light which is kind of neat to both sides you have good storage here you can see the hanging rod. So, that way, if you need to hang up some clothes you can go ahead and do.
So, shelf space underneath and and space are extra storage space here right across the top lastly you do have a vent up top and over on the other wall is another hookup for a TV as. I mentioned you know you can do the same thing go ahead and take the TV on the arm mount and drop it right down in there, but all right folks that's pretty much going to wrap it up again this is a 2017 vintage Cruiser 23 RS s this is a great floorplan, if you're looking forward you know, if you want that vintage look, but you want all the modern amenities you know, if you're looking for the power tongue jack and power awning that really make camping easy and you again you love that old look, but you want to slide you want that extra room this is the perfect model for you, if you are interested and you're looking for price and availability you can either give myself.
