I'm glad to see that they're keeping the Redwood as their top unit

Interesting. In looking at that Cypress it doesn't really look that different from a standard Redwood. No rear cap or full body paint but otherwise it looks to be the same bits and pieces.

Hopefully their stepping up the Redwood somehow or they may have created a monster...

It's my understanding, all Redwoods will now have full body paint.

I would agree it is based on the Redwood product but an entry level Redwood.
Looking at the pictures it is a lower trim level with no full body paint and notice a smaller refrigerator, smaller TVs, no wood trim on the window frames and cheaper window fabric trim, cheaper dinning chairs and such.

The Cypress does not have a rear cap, the Sequoia does have a rear cap.

Most likely it will be like many other manufactures have done, the lower level models are missing a lot of the standard items the higher lines have but the manufacturers will allow the buyer to add many of the options to the point of where the cost is equal to the higher product line.

If the Sequoia is considerably cheaper than the Redwood I'm betting it'll actually be an option many potential Redwood buyers will choose. I don't see much difference between the models at this point. Definitely nothing that would be worth over a few thousand in price difference. As for the smaller fridge and TV, the standard fridge in a Redwood is an 8 cubic foot, its just nobody orders them with that. Honestly you give that model a Redwood paint scheme and walk any of us through it and we likely wouldn't think twice about it being a Redwood.

Imagine if Corvette offered a lower end model without all the optional equipment and just a few colors. It's still a Corvette...

I think Cadillac tried that with the Cimarron,



And Lincoln with the Versailles,



Both marketing flops! Just hanging the badge on something doesn't mean it earned the badge.

I'm a feature driven guy and I would immediately start to see the difference. Montana introduced the Montana High Country which was a lightweight version of the Montana. Interiors were near identical, but tank size, axles, tires, were all much less than a regular Montana had. Similar confusion with the Montana Mountaineer.

I personally think Redwood is doing the right thing by keeping the lower end units under a new and distinctly different name.

I think Redwood will do okay with this. You can buy a standard f350 for the mid 40's or you can buy a F350 for $65k. It all depends on the options and luxury. The folks with a "less than Redwood" budget, won't get the full body paint or some of the other luxury items.

It appears that they all are going to built in Syracuse. Do they have that much room there?

Affirmative, at the Rally they advised the Rushmore production is being moved back to a Crossroads plant. The Redwood plant will produce Redwood, Sequoia and Cypress.

I may have had my head in the sand for the past four years, but I thought that the Blackwood was supposedly the lower version of the Redwood. That went by the wayside.
I think that all these introductions will overload the system. Expendible cash is not on the increase and eventually the piper will have to be paid. One can only hope that this venture succeeds and they survive.

Do you mean Elevation? They look like a Toyhauler version of the Redwood. We've considered switching to their Las Vegas floorplan at some point.

My bad...yes the Elevation!!

It was confusing while we were at the factory, they has Elevation's, Rushmore's, Redwoods, Sequoias and Cypress' in the line and on the lot. They were still producing the Rushmore's at the time but I think they've moved them back to Crossroads now.

I hope they keep Elevation there. One would assume the quality would then be on par with Redwood, for whatever that's worth...

So why did they junk the black wood trailers because the cypress and sequoia are right about the same quality as the blackwood

Wasn't cypress the Newmar line? Did Redwood buy that name too?

Rushmore is still being built, correct? Is that a "by Redwood" or "by Crossroads"?
