I have been looking to buy a new fifth wheel and the Redwood
has got my attention big time, how ever, some sites list them as a Crossroad
Redwood and some just a Redwood. Is there a difference, the pictures look the
same?????????

Crossroads and Redwood are both brands owned by Thor Industies. Theyeach have links on their websites to the other brand, but Redwood is a separate brand not one of the Crossroads models.
Due to RW production expansion, production of toy haulers and impendingintroduction of a new Carriage the factory has moved their service to a Crossroads facility.
We can also go to a RW or Crossroads dealer for warranty work.

Thanks for clearing that up, some of the dealers are listing
the same rig by both names Crossroads Redwood or just Redwood. Makes it a
little confusing at times, thanks for helping me out, I thought a dealer was
doing a bate and switch on me. When I first started checking them out I only found
them as a “Redwood”. Now I am finding the same pictures listed as a Crossroad
Redwood.

Thanks again.

Crossroads now owns Redwood. Our 2014 came from the Crossroads Factory with Crossroads on the application for title that went to the DRV.

You've just opened up a debated can o' worms. There are other Posts on this forum.

There are people on this forum that don't have a problem with being connected to "Crossroads" and others are trying to distance their Redwoods from the Crossroads name.

Crossroads is the money for the creation of Redwood &amp; Blackwood. Thus, ownership of.

Within the past several years, due to tremendous sales, Redwood has purchased the bankrupt "Carriage". To my knowledge Redwood purchased them. Not Crossroads.

CEO of Redwood, Tom montague is the past CEO of the bankrupt Carriage. Obviously, he was instrumental in the purchase of Carriage. Kinda inside information, don't ya think.

Thor was two RV companies that got together in 1988 and put their names together to create the name "Thor". Thor company has been purchasing RV manufacturers over the past years. They own, not operate, many different RV companies. They are not on the ground floor working each company. Having said that, Thor wants to see their' companies show profits. You can see a list of all the companies that Thor owns on Thorforum.com .

Someone should research the relationship between the three. Just because Thor owns Crossroads and Thor owns Redwood doesn't necessarily follow that Crossroads owns Redwood. Most of the confusion comes from the fact that Tom was given additional responsibilities for Crossroads after he became President of Redwood and they share additional resources seemingly as required. Certainly, dealers lack of consensus whether to advertise the units as "Redwood" or "Crossroads Redwood" has not helped the brand identity.

If the 2014 units are being invoiced as Crossroads, that's troubling. To me, i don't find any of the Crossroads line attractive and certainly not worthy of "owning" Redwood. Profit maximizing as it goes, you can expect the Redwoods to become more Crossroads-like over time and not the other way around.Edited by: 5th_Time

Good thing we got in on the "ground floor" then. Kinda like the Ford name being associated with the Pinto!

The great debate of Redwood being a Crossroads product....yup, it is. The MSO shows it is manufactured by Crossroads. I also just received a replacement part and the invoice and box it arrived in has Crossroads written all over it.

I wonder if this means Crossroads dealers will be selling Redwoods.
