YOU PROBABLY HAVE 4 PLY TIRESON YOUR TOW VEHICLE.
Re: Shadow Cruiser Marcus_brougham 11-12-04  
I'm looking at a (2005) 189FBR Model with several options for 12,995.00. I love the way every thing is spaced inside, it looks bigger than most larger TT's I have seen. Reading this post has me wondering about the "Swaying" issue. Could it be a defect or is it people not loading properly? I will be puling with a 2001 Nissan Pathfinder LE V6 (2wd) Has anyone pulled SC with one before?
I can recieve info at: Marcus_Brougham@yahoo.com

Re: Shadow Cruiser Dennis 11-21-04  
As for trailer sway, any trailer will sway when more weight is behind the axle(s) than in front. If you get the weight forward so that the tires and toung share the weight the sway will usually stop. If it still persists, you need to double check inflation pressures in your tires and the type of tires you have. You may need more pressure than the door plackard suggests if you are carrying a heavier load on the axle than it suggests. The smaller trailers are more prone to this than larger multi axle ones are but you can load almost any trailer improperly and have this occur.

As for Shadow Cruiser, I have looked at many slide in truck campers and decided to pick up a new Shadow Cruiser day after tomorrow. Looks like a good camper for the money. A friend of mine used to work for one of their dealers and they had very few problems with them.
Re: Shadow Cruiser Karen Tellin 5-26-04  
We are looking for an older model SC that will fit a short bed F-150 truck.
Re: Shadow Cruiser Frances 11-15-04  
Looking for a used SC 5th wheel - 26' - to pull with a Toyota Tundra - 2005 double cab - is anyone driving such a rig - please email me with information about traveling with it. Thanks for any information - this will be our first FW. Thanks Frances
Re: Shadow Cruiser bill 9-29-04  
I love the older fifth wheels. Wish the new ones would come without the slide.
Re: Shadow Cruiser Trisha 4-11-04  
Yes, we just purchased on yesterday and they made an appointment with us to add a 7 way electrical plug onto the van and it'll give us the abilit to hand brake the unit, or use just the brakes in the van. I can't wait to start camping with this, we purchased the 179 unit.
Re: Shadow Cruiser cheryl 6-28-03  
I just purchased a 18ft. shadow cruiser in Mn and hauled it to CO. I could not go over 50 m.p.h. or it fishtailed tremendously even with a equalizer hitch and sway bars. Could you please give me some advice.
Re: Shadow Cruiser lee jordan 7-3-03  
Do you answer the emails ?
I am supposed to pick up my T-160 next week and I thought the floors felt a little spongy when I walked through the trailer.
Any thoughts or suggestions ?
Re: Shadow Cruiser Rick 6-17-03  
In the near future, I am going to purchase a small (19-21 ft.) 5th wheel that I can tow with a mid-sized truck. Because I camp a lot in the outback, I want a trailer that is narrow (7 ft.) and has good clearance. A few years ago, SC made some models that fit these dimensions. Do you plan to make more of these? Thanks for any information that you might have.
Re: Shadow Cruiser Cotton 4-19-03  
I own a 1989 SC slide in truck camper.
I am looking for some wiring information but no one seems to want to respond to my Emails that I write your company. I understand that the present company did not make my product, but I also believe you have enough knowledge of a company you bought that you could tell me where 3 wires go.
I like this camper,and I like your new ones,but if I cannot even get a response from your firm I would hesitate a long time before I would lay any money out for any of your product.
I'm not trying to make anyone look bad,you wanted feedback from owners and this is how I feel. There are enough companies in this country that don't care about customers once they have their money or the product is out of warrantee,those that do care are the ones who will prosper!
Re: Shadow Cruiser Suzanne and David 3-8-03  
Do they have electric brakes?
Re: Shadow Cruiser skirunner 3-9-03  
We have a '93 FK255 5th wheel and it is still in good shape with about 40000 miles of towing including a trip up to Alaska and back. The main problem has been the brake wiring. Also had problem with alignment of the two axels causing wierd tire wear -- but we got that taken care of. Are the new owners going to supply parts for the old units?
Re: Shadow Cruiser Ed Taylor 7-10-03  
We have a 1996 25.5 rear bath we purchased new 2/14/96. We have towed it about 35000 miles to date with only a few minor problems. First 30000 miles behind a Toyota T-100 V-6 and now behind a Tundra V-8. Over the Rockies and thre West Virginia with both set-ups. Lowest fuel mileage was 10.5 mpg and highest was 15.2 mpg. No plans to trade but the new ones look nice. Love the 84" width for towing but set up for a Toyota Tundra Access-Cab if you make a short tight turn the trailer contacts the rear window molding and cracks the window. Don't ask how I know this! This is a driver error rather than any fault of the trailer. To sum up, we love it! Ed Taylor
Re: Shadow Cruiser Christine 8-3-03  
We have a 1996 25.5 SC 5th Wheel. This is our second, both bought used. We tow it with a Dodge 1500 4WD, Quad Cab, short bed, with a 5.9 engine. We rececntly took a 4000 mile trip through the Rockies to Oregon. In the Snowy Range of Wyoming we had to go down to 1st gear and crawl up the steep pass. Our mileage ranged from 8mpg bucking winds and hills and driving 70mph in Kansas to almost 12 mpg driving slower in the mountains of Utah and Oregon. We love our SC and would like a model with a slide out in the future. Just wish they were a little less expenseive and will probably wait for a used model.
Re: Shadow Cruiser Kim 10-26-03  
I have had my fun finder T160 for two years now and have been very happy with my unit. I tows well behind my mercury mountaineer (a 6 cyl.). The interior design of my 16 ft travel trailer is great. It gives all the features needed to be comfortable including space. For those with swaying troubles- the one time I had problems with swaying it was very windy and I had packed some heavier items (firewood, extra propane cylander) near the back of the camper behind the wheels. I also had a low tire on one side of the unit. Once I aired up the tire and repacked to the weight was closer to the fron on the tonge the swaying stopped.

2004 Fun Finder T-160 Loaded with extras including Honda 2KW Generator. In new condition. Sleeps 4/5 Located in North Louisiana. $10,000.00
Re: Shadow Cruiser Kathy 10-22-03  
Am reading the posts about the 18' shadow cruiser TTs and sway while towing, and wonder if the 16-footer does this, too. We might look at a T-160, and would tow w/ a 4.0L V6 SOHC Explorer w/tow pkg. Any info appreciated.
Re: Shadow Cruiser Bobby Franco 10-15-03  
I have a '99 shadow cruiser trailer. I'm looking for an owner's manual.
Re: Shadow Cruiser Rich Truax 9-2-03  
Just looked at 18ft Fun Finder at local
dealer. Saw brochure but it did not include info on pictures of this great trailer being built. Like to know framing techniques and details about building it. As much as we can tell by being inside it and reading the info offered, this is a really nice trailer. Having only single rather than double set of wheels, how does it track, we tow with 1500 Suburban.

Re: Shadow Cruiser Ted M. Vaughn 4-13-04  
Just bought a new SC189FBR single axle.
Pulled it 20 mi with my Toyota Tundra before I bought and 20 mi home. Thats all so far. Pulled great with no WD or sway. Pulled on 4 lane highway up to 75mph and done some quick lane changes and had no problems. Hope the future does the same.
Really like the way its set up and the fit and trim are very good.
Have went through it and tried everything and after I figured it all out, I found no problems.
I did notice that the battery is in a very bad place by not being able to access it easily and adds weight to the rear instead of frount. But without having any problems, thats OK. (I do like to take the battery out in the winter while I'm not using it.)

Re: The Shadow Tom 3-26-10  
I saw a fifth wheel back in the 80s hooked to the roof of a full sized Buick 4 door. The car's ability to do all that the new youtube clip of the '74 Bug did, was amazing.
Who was the manufacturer of this version? This 5th wheel was named The Shadow. This is all I know. I saw this camper in 1984 or so and it was not overly large, nor was it a teardrop size. Can anyone help?
Re: Shadow Cruiser BJ 7-7-10  
Be careful of the Shadow Cruisers! Cute as they may be, ours is a real lemon and we have received no help on it from the company as yet. The AC has fallen through the ceiling; the camper is falling apart. Bought it brand new from Rimrock in Grand Junction, CO in 2005; it is a T-210. We found after removing the wheels that the bolts which hold the axle assembly were installed backwards, so the bolts were laying on the suspension arms, prohibiting any suspension or give. It has been a nightmare! There were no roof trusses found when we had the AC removed; no wonder it caved the roof in. BJ

Correct an error. I made a mistake and listed a T-160 Fun Finder 16 foot trailer with Generator. It should be listed as $10,500.00 not $10,000.00 as I mistakenly typed. I do not know how to correct my previous announcement.Thanks Ken

Re: Shadow Cruiser Virgil and Sherri Churchill 5-30-09  
My wife and I recently purchased a used 1990 Shadow Cruiser. It needed a new fridge (we were told the old one was bad) and a few other items that made it more personal. Last weekend, Memorial Day, was our first time using it. It towed great, and the setup time at the campsite was minimal. On the way home, it was rather windy but I didn't have any problems. The sway was minimal. I'm pulling it with a 1977 Ford F250 w/ 460 engine. We love it! I would like to add an electric motor to the landing gear but not sure which to purchase. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Virgil and Sherri Churchill

Re: Shadow Cruiser Joe 7-25-06  
I own a 1997 26 ft Shadow Cruiser and recently experienced a problem when trying to back out of a tight spot. I had my eyes on the trees and stumps instead of on the trailer as much and the trailer got so close to my back window (2001 chevy 4x4 with extended cab) that is actually broke the back window. Anyone else have this sort of thing happen to them, was pretty scary.

I would appreciate any comments.

Re: Shadow Cruiser Dianne 6-6-05  
We are seriouly thinking of buying a new or used Shadow Cruiser T189FBR. It will be towed by a Toyota 4Runner V6. The used one we are considering is a single axle. Should we be concerned about swaying?? Is double axle generally better?

Re: Shadow Cruiser FUN FINDER RICHARD LENZ 10-1-07  
I bought a 2006 t210 about a year and a half ago, and have had nothing but problems. First the roof started falling in. They replaced that with a wood truss roof. Then the booths to the table wouldn't stay attached to the floor. Turns out the frame is bent. The cupboards on the walls are facing in a downward angle because the walls bow out. Can't use the bunk bed in the front because the braces are out to far for the bed to rest on. It's been in the Warranty shop for 3 weeks and I still have no answers. Cruiser r.v. is now sending someone out to inspect the frame. I'm just hanging here waiting to see what they want to do. I'll let you all know how this Warranty works out. Maybe they'll do the right thing and buy it back from me. Has anyone else had these problems? Rick Lenz

Re: Shadow Cruiser lee jordan 6-24-03  
I am going to buy a lite TT ( max 3500 loaded,I will use a Honda Pilot as tow vehicle )and have looked at SC and Coyote.
I would appreciate your comments on the two from a comparison perspective also where is your nearest dealer to Charleston WV.
I have read lots of complimentary comments about the SC on the various RV forums.
Re: Shadow Cruiser LANA AND JOHN 7-1-03  
We recently purchased a 18+ "FUN FINDER"
(IN MAY, 2003). It has less than 100
miles travel, and is virtually new!
We will however, probably want to
purchase a LARGER trailer (OR a fifth
wheel.) This one is great with all options, but, a little small. It tows
great behind a lite truck, or LARGE auto. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how we can sell or trade this NEW
fun finder on a larger unit?
We reside in Georgia.
sincerely,

Shadow Cruiser,

While vacationing in Red Lodge, I saw a sleeper I liked, pulled over, and obtained the make--shadow cruiser, which appeared to be a slide-in mounted
ont a 4X4 flatbead TRD off-road.

Please send a price list or direct me. I noted in your

What say you?

Thanks much,

Re: Shadow Cruiser Gary Stolp 9-11-03  
The 18ft. trailer made by you is not safe to pull on the highway. After 35 miles per hour it sways so bad that it is not safe!!!
You have a real problem, are you going to fix it?
Re: Shadow Cruiser Sean Davis 3-13-04  
I'm considering a used 16 or 18 foot Shadow Cruiser but am concerned about posting here regarding sway at freeway speeds. Is this problem inherent with this brand or is it "user error"? This will be my first trailer coach ever so I don't want a lemon twist. Do these coaches pull safely? My vehicle is a Pontiac Aztek, 3.5 V6, can pull max of 3500 lbs. Did you get any good advice about the sway problem and have you been able to correct it?

Re: Shadow Cruiser George E. Frick 8-24-03  
I own a 1997 24' S/C 5th wheel that is loaded. We have traveled all over the SE with it and love that way it pulls in the mountains and back roads. I pull it with a F250 disel and hardly know it is there. I am looking for a bigger rig but not a monster. The 26Ft with the pull out sounds nice. Does it have more storage underneat it than the old ones and what is the weight?

Re: Shadow Cruiser James L. Parmenter 7-26-17  
I'm buying a 1991 M-21' Shadow Cruiser 5th Wheel from the previous owner here in NM. It had a Broken Axle, the front one, it's a tandem axle rig. This rig, as I guess most others (Shadow Cruiser's) have Rubber Torsion Axles, not leaf springs. All say it gives a better ride...! But please, if have one of these 5th wheel trailers, Please check out your Axle/Wheel Hubs....! This one had some $10.00 each, Chrome Grease caps on each Wheel. A grease zert is in the center to apply grease to the wheel bearings. BEWARE...! These DO NOT reach the INNER bearing, thus, like on my Shadow Cruiser, Broken Axle due to false claims of this gadget..!
It seems, to many people, this gadget fails to get any grease to the inner wheel bearings, in my case, the bearing was dry while climbing a mountain at 6% grade(in NM) passers by said the tire was smoking. It was because it was dragging on the ground (blacktop). The inner bearing seized up, froze all movement of the right front tire. Heat transfered from the spindle to the torsion arm thus heating up the Hexagonal Axle junction of the Torsion Arm( very thin metal here) and the axle sheared off at 2" from the trailer frame.
A very rare but costly mistake, the entire right front tire, wheel, spindle, brake drum, torsion arm as an assembly went down the mountain, to the tune of $499.72 just for the axle....plus other parts.... The previous owner drove it back to the RV park he had just left at only 30 miles an hour. I got a good deal on buying it, no doubt..but wanted to warn others with Shadow Cruiser's...!

I am going to purchase a 1999 14" SC. Is it any good? What do I have to watch for? We will drive close to 3 hrs to take a look at it this coming wk. Need help as we are 1st time TT buy and have never tow one TT before. We will be using our Pontiac Montana to tow it back home. Any advise will help. Thanks ahead. Henry and Denise

I tow a 1989 SC 24 ft 5th wheel.
My hitch has a towing position and a maneuvering position. When backing the trailer with tight turns, I always put it into the maneuvering position, which positions the trailer about one foot further away from the cab than in the towing position.

Hi;
I own a 91 Shadow Cruiser 5th wheel M-21 (21 foot) with rubber torsion axle problems. This unit's exterior was painted, and right over the Federal Id sticker, I managed to wet sand the sticker with 1500 grit sandpaper very carefully, exposing the GVWR of 4700 lbs. GAWR has no #'s, would anyone happen to know what size Torsion Axles were used under these rigs...
?
The Brake drums are 10" x 2.25", which suggests 3500# axles...? Why have 7000# of axles under a 4700 GVWR trailer..? Any and all help appreciated, thanks in advance...
James...
