The manufacturer says: "You won't find more value for your money in a lightweight package than the Fun Finder X. From the stainless steel appliances to the true gelcoat exterior...Fun Finder X is as attractive as it is functional."

There are 10 models of the Fun Finder X available. Lengths range from 14'9" to 24'7". The picture above shows the X-210 model with 21'9" length.

  We show pictures of the Fun Finder X interiors below.  These are both of the 189FBR and give an impression of the high quality of the furnishings and the clever layout arrangement:

FLOORPLANS

There are 10 Fun Finder X floorplans. We show 4 of them here. We first show the X-130, which is the shortest model with a 14'9" length. We then show the X-189FBR model - 18'3" long.  The X-160 model with bunks is shown next, and finally the top-of-the-range X-230DS model, 24'7". We think all of these floorplans are well thought out and use the space available beautifully.  (To maximize the picture in the space available, these are not shown to the same scale of course.)

Josephd Maurizzibought new 2014 fun finder 25 foot in June. Excellent design, they put a lot of thought into this trailer. Looked at Winnabago but opted for the fun finder, they had the slam latch doors, the fantastic fans, higher head room, they did not cut corners too much. They did have a cheap mattress. It was like sleeping on a board, Replaced it w/foam mattress $700. They should look at the article in Bloomberg Business Week Dec 14. Title the largest tool in the toolbox. It is about Dodge Ram how you can custom order a Truck. The Rv indutry should take notie. I would love to be able to custom order. I want air ride suspension, cant find it, We had to replace the mattress, I want 4 season capability. cant find it. ect. The only bad thing is the underside has a foam board finish. The wind caught it and pulled it down and tore it. I pushed it back up their and seemed to be ok. I would put a couple of cross members in across the width of the trailer wood slats to hold it up in their. We have pulled it about 5000 miles so far. Built in generator would be nice. We are boondockers. So we pull this trailer over some rough road. We are limited on length too where we camp. Mountains, Desart ect. all in all I love the design of this trailer.

JimI purchased a 2013 Fun Finder 244 last year. Before the year was up, the front cap started fading. The dealer, with Cruiser's blessing repainted a small portion of it. Within 90 days it started fading again and the original bottom portion started really fading. Looks like its 20 years old. Cruiser refuses to do anything about it. The dealer stepped in and will repaint it on their own. The manufacturer is horrible. Do not buy a Cruiser RV product!!!
JanetThanks to all who have shared their problems with this line of camper trailers and warning the rest of us who are looking to buy one! This is a obviously a pretty lousy company when they won't help their current customers with legitimate & major problems! I am going to avoid them like the plague!! I don't know why such companies don't proactively resolve problems their manufacturing processes and/or employees caused in an immediate and positive manner! It's as if they think no one will know and they can shabbily keep doing what they are doing. Very sad!! Since they're useless to current owners, I hope they go out of business soon!!
JBONEBought a view finder signature series in 2012 but was listed as a 201.I have only had it over 2yrs and the front cap from the top of the decal to the roof the clear coat is gone an its turning white looks like it has been in the sun for 30yrs never covered up.I called Cruiser warranty department and they told me there was nothing they could do for me now its going to cost me 1800.00 out of pocket due to poor quality coating on the cap.No help at all from them.The website says they are producing 100% quality products that is a joke will never have another cruiser.
LuvtocampWe purchased a 14 viewfinder signature. Never again will I be buying another Cruiser. Every time we went on a weekend trip something went wrong. Cable for tv's were hooked up wrong ( 3 trips to Elkart) . Wiring under fridge is a cluster ( bad word). Went to yellowstone for a week (over 2,000 miles away from home) to find out slide to kitchen didn't work. Camped with slide in. Couldn't get silverware, etc out of drawers. Spent 500.00 for someone to look at it in Wyoming. Then spent a night in a hotel. Well there is $800.00 out of our vacation money! Now the company who has our crap of a camper is waiting on good ole lippert to replace everything on our slide out. My camper has been in Elkart , Ind for a a month and a half. I am DONE with Cruiser! Called the manufacturer in Howe , Ind. to complain and service guy ( being nice not saying his name) isn't helping. I know when I called him today he flat out lied to me. Ugh I can't take it mo more. My camper has been worked on longer than we have used it this year.
Happy Fun Finder Happily have owned Funfinder 160 for 7 years. Trailer has been great. We have taken it on several long trips, thousands of km and never a problem. Would recommend this trailer to anyone.
Sam Fun Finder Travel Trailers !, I owned good and bad through out my 55 years , But out of everything I owned I got to give it to Cruiser RV the makers of the Fun Finder , They are the Best ( Hands Down ) for making The Worst piece of Junk Travel Travels . Don't waste your hard earned money on this Company's Junk,
21 slide-out2008 210wmb front window has design flaw which can cause undetected leaks, wood-rot, and mold on bed platform, adjacent closets, and lower front storage compartment.
Darren ThompsonI bought a 2011 FFx 19 with the electric corner jacks....what a mistake !! The jacks are complete junk had 2 go already on 10 trips out. Weep hole is on the top !! fill up with water and seize up. Known defect. To manually put them down you have to tear off the whole motor assembly. I am tearing them off and putting on manual cranks.
j shippi have a 2013 shadow cruiser at 2000 miles the 2 tires on the back axle were worn so bad on the right edge of both tires they had to be replaced. this was do to the axles not being parallel with each other. they are about 1/2 inch out. the frame is a purchased from a company call lippert components. they will not stand behind the junk that they send out to most all rv manufactures. i'm looking at a battle with them to get repaid for the repairs to get the frame fixed
Elainewe have a funfinder xtra 276 and our shower/tub water drains into the black water holding tank. Does anyone who has this trailer have the same draining system? We are told that this is the way it is made but find it extremely odd to have shower water draining into a very small holding tank.
JonBought our new Fun Finder XT276 this spring...first camper ever. Everything works like it should on every outing this summer. No problems like some claim. Really enjoy the unit and it pulls like a dream.
DouglasAs to the delamination mentioned by Don...Yes! We have the Fun Finder XT190 from 2008, it had been adequate, if cheaply made. But now that the skin is delaminating, my dissatisfaction is complete and would not recommend this trailer to anyone.
TammieBought our new 2012 Viewfinder V21FB and after 1 week, 3 outlets in the back of the camper are dead,checked everything, before that happened, we could not watch a DVD, my husband pulled the radio/video player out of the wall and someone had connected the cables in WRONG!!, it's suppose to have 2 GFCI outlets in the camper but only 1 when my husband pulled the outlet out, a wire was not connected. Also, the A/C keeps tripping the breaker with nothing else going. Major electrical problems. Just the A/C going even tripped our breaker in our home! We have an appt with the dealer we bought it in a couple days, hope they find the problem. If not we're going to ask for our money back. Seems we got a lemon. Looks good on the outside. This is our 4th camper and we never had a problem out of our Layton or Cherokee!
SamIf your looking into a New Garbage FunFinder X Travel Trailer (STOP) and don't waste your money , Buy a Tent ,Trust me you sleep better
JeanetteWe bought our UN-Fun Finder less than a month ago and its been in the shop twice already and headed in again. We were stuck in the bighorn mountains when the slide out would not come back in. Turns out the moter was dead on one side. Had to cancel the rest of our vacation to come home and get it fixed. The heat will not come on without the airconditioning also coming on at the same time. Very much regretting this purchase so far, not only because of the problems but because the dealer doesn't seem to care.
toytrucks8Purchased a 2007 Fun Fnder X 16. Great layout. Pulls great in the mountains of Washington State. Pulling with a 2012 Ford Explorer 4WD. Seems to be quite well made for such a light trailer. Do not see any of the problems others have listed.
B & P from AZFirst outing plumbing leaks under entertainment center, ruined some of wood. Bathtub cracked, had to be replaced. Second outing, slideout leaked badly. Both problems required 2 months each at dealer for repairs. Afraid to move it this year.
Gaius GracchusOur family purchased a viewfinder and we had leakage from poor caulking around windows and faulty stabilizers in rear plus other problems. So far problems are being addressed under warranty but not sure what will happen when warranty runs out.
Crystal Jensen2009 model purchased brand new in 2010. Owned it 24 months, used it twice, been in the dealer's shop for warranty repairs for 18 of those 24 months. Truly regretting my purchase. Never bought anything of sizable expense brand new before in my life (not cars, not houses, not campers) first ever purchase of a brand new off the lot item and so so unhappy and dissatisfied with the Fun Finder. LOOK AT OTHER BRANDS. BUYER BEWARE.
Bill WrightMy daughter has a 2006 Fun Finder X, has been nothing but trouble since she bought it new. Besides electric and plumbing problems, front is delaminating and they are telling her $4K to repair. This is the sorriest excuse I have seen for a camp trailer. I wonder if anyone has considered a lawsuit against the maker?
Al and TorrieI purchased a new viewfinder 22 in Feb 2011,what a piece of JUNK, the dealer has been working to repair it since Jan 20 and just got it back yesterday March 29, More problems than space to list them here! A friendly WARNING, look for another brand. Cruiser Funfinder and Viewfinder are JUNK!
Al and TorrieMy 2011 viewfinder 22 has been in the dealers repair facility for the last 55 days,black water tank failed at a seam and had to be replaced, front cap and roof opened up and have water damage in the interior. I am very Sad I own this trailer.
Al and TorriePurchased a Cruiser RV Viewfinder in 2011,It is JUNK,many electrical and plumbing problems,plus the front cap has pulled away from the roof exposing the interior to the weather. There is no good fix for this error in construction as there is not any solid areas to attach the front cap to the roof.MY ADVISE, LOOK FOR ANOTHER BRAND.
Al and TorriePurchased a 22ft viewfinder Feb 2011 and have many electrical and water leak problems,Cruiser RV will not answer phone calls and will not return phone calls left on their answering machine,very disappointed with Cruiser RV.
ArizAlWe have a Viewfinder V21FB and really enjoy the lay out of the front bathroom. This trailer tows better than any other travel trailer that we have owned. The "V" nose, 7'6" width and loaded balance increases the towability of this trailer. The build quality of the trailer has been very good.
Nathan Bryan AZJust got a NEW 2011 FunFinder FDS & its falling apart around me , Its JUNK , I traded in a 2010 Skyline Layton that is a way better Camper.I live @ 5 1/2 hours from the dealier and he told me Im not going have Problems with it ,Less then 1 week I called the Dealier and asked him if I can undo the deal and get my Laton Back becouse this thing is falling apart, & he said NO ,Then I asked if I could get a different 189FDS thinking this one was made on a Monday or a Friday ? And he said NO , I told Him Im going to bring it back ,park it and leave it there till everything is done right , He told me that he is understaff to handel things of Problems this big. I had it with this thing ,My Wife loves Camping , She said I'm not going anywere in that thing . My Comment is ! Its JUNK and don't beleave anything that how much better it is then other brands , Out of a 1 to 10 I give it less then 1 and thats being nice, My Laton was way way way better made at 1/2 the$$$ and twice the Camper of the FunFinder JUNK JUNK JUNK
PhilJust purchased a 2011 viewfinder 21fb in N.C. and towed it home to Ma. Best price came from Wilmington rv after checking all over the net. Towing home was a dream, no problems, towed better then our 18 foot Cikira classic cruiser. Had a problem with tail light lens falling off and broken switch on bathroom light, called Crusier rv and told them of problem, customer service couldn't find dealer in our area, but person named Gentry was very helpful and parts arrived today, new light and tail light assembly, having repaired at shop in our area. Great service, and great layout for small trailer, love it so far. Oh had real heavy wind blown rain the last few days and no problems.
DianeOur skylight over the tub leaks condensation under the trim and is ruining the ceiling. Anyone else have this problem? How to fix it?
