Cruiser RV has much to offer in the lightweight travel trailer market and a prime example is the company’s versatile Fun Finder X-215WSX, a compact front queen, rear bath unit that can work just as well for a small family as for a busy couple. The X-215WSX provides a two-room split accomplished through the use of a center pillar entertainment center that separates the front master bedroom from the living quarters/kitchen area with the help of two curtains. Generous cabinet space with large-capacity appliances and a wall-to-wall bathroom highlight this trailer’s bright interior.
A flush-floor slideout holds a flip-down convertible couch and provides enough room to place the portable table and a comfy Ottoman (with storage under its flip-open top cushion) in the aisle to seat as many as four for dining. It’s snug, but doable. The X-215WSX keeps an open feeling due to its luminous Harmony White interior cabinets and the amount of space devoted to windows in the compact trailer. The largest of the three main cabin windows reaches from the top of the dinette seat cushion to the ceiling.
Populating the kitchen is a stainless steel-clad 6-cubic-foot refrigerator, three-burner stovetop and oven with a power hood and light, all set in a goodly amount of bright white cabinets with a decent-sized, three-shelf pantry across the aisle. This trailer also included the microwave oven, which came as part of the X Fun Package ($2,741) that included a 13.5K-Btu A/C unit, electric awning, spare tire, tire carrier and cover, 6-gallon gas/electric water heater with DSI, outside hot/cold shower, carryout BBQ and LCD TV. The limited kitchen counter space is compensated for by the cutting boards that fit atop the dual stainless sinks, and the portable dinette table that serves as both food prep and feasting surface.
In addition to traditional indoor cooking, the trailer features a popular item these days — an outdoor kitchen with a 4.5 cubic-foot refrigerator, small sink and faucet, and a two-burner cooker on a swing-out tabletop. A quick-disconnect LP-gas source near the frame can be used to fuel the swing-out cooktop or the optional carryout BBQ unit (part of the aforementioned X Fun Package) that attaches to a hanger on the side of the trailer a few feet forward of the outdoor kitchen. Great for summertime camping, these outdoor dining and grilling choices will keep smoke and cooking odors (and you) outside of the trailer.
The large private rear bathroom stretches from wall to wall and offers a lavish sink with a mirrored medicine cabinet, and generous storage cabinets below the sink and above the toilet. A flush toilet and a large glass-sided shower stall are also included.
The bedroom offers plenty of overhead cabinet space and mirrored hanging wardrobes on the sides for storage of linens and clothing. And there is more space for cargo under the lift-up queen bed, which is firm, but very comfortable. In addition to a Jensen sound system wired to speakers throughout the rig, the entertainment center contained a flat-screen TV on a locking swivel stand, allowing it to be viewed from the bedroom or the living room. This lets mom and dad enjoy a little late-night TV time once they have retreated to the comforts of the master bedroom. The bedroom, main room and bathroom are loaded with plenty of registers for A/C and heat, and more lights than you’ll know what to do with.
We found the X-215WSX attractive because of its huge pass-through front storage compartment, sleek and sturdy fully laminated fiberglass- and aluminum-framed walls, gel-coated fiberglass front cap and full LED exterior lighting package. It’s light enough that it can be towed with half-ton-capacity vehicles, it rides smoothly on a Trail Air leaf spring suspension system and 14-inch tires, features dual-drum electric brakes, and is well appointed for a trailer of its size and price range. And like many manufacturers trending toward a higher standard, Cruiser RV has met certain sustainable materials use standards, allowing its lightweight Fun Finder X trailers to be TRA-certified Green.
