C19 Compact RV

89 Reviews

This compact unit is a fully self-contained RV with a sleek aerodynamic design.

The floorplan features a unique rear kitchen design with all the amenities of a larger unit. The cabover bed is extra roomy making the compact RV the ideal unit for two adults of any age and a dinette folding to an extra bed allows for kids too. With six foot six inch ceilings and walk through convenience even tall campers can enjoy the compact RV.

First time renters will appreciate the narrower 7 1/2 ft width which makes driving in hilly areas safer and easier and makes parking in any lot a breeze.

As with all Cruise RVs excess weight has been removed without sacrifice to structural integrity. Reducing vehicle weight and inflating tires with nitrogen to maintain tire pressure results in better gas mileage.

“Everything was in good working order but the interior was dirty. Crockery was dirty (not unwashed but unhygienic)and insufficient. I had to request utensils. There was a single (very thin) blanket in each bedding / linen pack which was fine for Las Vegas surroundings but insufficient for Yosemite at -8 degrees Celsius. I seem to recall that description actually referred to two blankets per pack??”

“Camper van was in disgusting condition when we collected it. We had to wait around 2.5hrs to collect the camper due to the depot being very busy and poorly staffed. The bathroom was dirty, the toilet had poo smears from the previous customers, the van floor was dusty and dirty, the seats were clogged with dust, the kitchen utensils were dirty. We had to ask for and collect our own provisioning kits and track down missing utensils.”

“I really liked it!! It was my first roadtrip in a RV and I did choice for a smaller one because I didn't know if how it works, In fact. We were 3 (2 adults and a 13 years old child) and our only consideration is the luggage space (very small). But the vehicle corresponded my expectative.”

“OUR "LITTLE HOME FOR 3 WEEKS" WAS NICE EQUIPPED AND CLEAN GETTING IT; THE ONLY THING WHAT HAS TO BE MENTIONED WAS THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE WATER HEATER; IT DID WORK PROPERLY - THAT I DISCOVERED BY MYSELF - ONLY BY OPENING THE FLAP AT THE BACK OF THE RV; MAYBE THERE`S A FUNCTIONAL DISFUNCTION OF THE AIRSTREAM; THE REST WORKED WELL; ”

“Our second time renting the C19 Compact RV and it suits us (middle aged couple, kids left home) perfectly. Sure the inside is basic, but for 40 days it was our home and gave us not an ounce of trouble. The bed could do with a memory foam core as it is a bit too firm, and a corkscrew would be a good basic addition to the kitchen pack. ”

“The linen provided was inadequate. One pillow was so flat that it was useless. The sheets were so worn out and thin. only one sheet per person .One towel per person is inadequate for 20 days. It took nearly a week to find a flashlight to light the stove.I found it later in one of the bags. The cutlery was oily and greasy. The table came apart at the base and it looked that it has been repaired on several occasions but not adequately. ”

“Giving 5 star even though their motorhomes are old & rundown. Just that I went during pick-up with a very detailed checklist and referred all issues to the staff. Seeing my level of extensiveness, they replaced my motorhome with a new 1 which they knew was the best in the lot and yes, there was indeed no issue with this 1 Moral of the story: Go through the orientation video, prepare a detailed checklist & spare few hours during pick-up for the check.”

“There were some problems with the RV. Still in Cruise America, when starting the engine, there was a message about a problem with the tire. The attendant said that probably the problem was with sensor, since the technical checked the tires before renting the RV. I also noticed that the propane level marked 3/4. The attendant said it was full, and it was also a sensor problem too. ”

“Brand new RV it broke down within the first week. We spent 48 hours running around trying to fix it, finally given the oldest RV in the fleet, proved to be fabulous. The new one started falling apart as we checked it over - the curtains pulled off the velcro, the plastic linings were pulling away - someone needs to do some serious QC when you collect these from the factory. The old bed was very uncomfortable. ”

“The RV was very old : 150 000 miles, very difficult to close the blinds, the tow haul worked when it wanted (so more importance gasoline's consumption), no mirror in bathroom. We saw lot of RV during our travel. We had the most rubbish. During the pick-up, the refrigerator wasn't cleaned (it was cleaned at the last moment before us) and the cruise america's staff explained us nothing. We had the impression to bother them. We are disappointed by Cruise America ”

“Cruise Americe is shit, I will never recommend them to anyone. The worst unsafe, unclean, how unclean, the shower drain was full of hair, not ours. The depot service was shit, the manger didn't care, the staff were rude, how rude try arriving early as a secret shopper and find out. Pray you you never have an issue with your vehicle I'd add more but I'd run out of words”

“Value: room on board was less than anticipated, we chose the C19 ourselves but in future would choose a larger vehicle for a "few dollars" more cleanliness and quality: C19 was 5 years old and showed, understandingly, signs of use depot service:friendly and helpfull, it woulde be nice if you could get a cup of coffee while waiting ”

“Key issue:furnace never worked - we froze for 2 nights. Call Assist staff were good but being on hold cost over $30. Call back only works in areas with cell coverage and we were out of coverage a lot so there has to be a better system.Then we were sent to a repair shop only to be told that he repaired motor heaters not furnaces. Then we spent a whole afternoon getting a lube. So a whole day of our trip was wasted on these issues. Various other small faults:drawers jamming or falling open. ”

“The vehicle was 5 years old, looked it and drove like it. We spend 3 hours cleaning entire interior; grubby curtains; floor dirt-ingrained; bathroom taps stopped working. Driver's door mirror fell off requiring a temporary fix. CA customer assistance slow to respond. Complaint resulted in a pain-easing $100 refund. Had a fantastic time though - get us a newer vehicle next trip please!”

“The bed over the cab was unconfortable due to the hard edge between the fixed & movable parts of the mattress. The sleeping bags were adequate but we would have liked something heavier for the coldest nights. The kitchen equipment did not include a chopping board or dustpan/brush. It would have been good to include some wheel ramps as most of the sites we stayed on were not level. Depot service was slow on pickup but on return it was very quick. The depot Staff were very helpful.”

“The rear blind on the vehicle was moldy, also when we first got the dishes out to use them some of the plates and cutlery were also dirty. I know the beds aren't supposed to be luxurious but the upper bunk insertion piece, the foam was so old that it literally was like sleeping on a piece of plyboard, small things, but the sleeping situation in particular really affected our overall enjoyment of the camper - Not getting good sleep tends to make for being tires all day.”

“2years ago we rented a cruise america RV.Everything was fine.That was the reason to rent an RV again. But: First, when filling the water tank, all the water ran back out of the RV! The barriers at the heater were not closed. We were lucky that the closure was still in the tray and was not lost because we had already driven 100 miles. Then we wanted to use the toilet flushing. But it did not work. In most cases, the generator did not start. Something more but have no more characters to write.”
