Both models are equipped with modern conveniences, though the Sunset Trail RV typically includes more upscale fittings. The Sunset Trail RVs have aluminum framing and a fiberglass exterior, while the Zinger RVs have a corrugated metal side exterior with wood framing. However, some RV enthusiasts question the durability and lifespan of wood framing compared to aluminum, though some prefer wood for its better insulation properties in extremely cold conditions.

The Sunset Trail RV offers a more open layout conducive to entertaining, while the CrossRoads Zinger provides practical, cozy spaces. Both models comfortably accommodate families, but the layout and bed configurations may sway your decision based on personal needs. The Sunset Trail RVs are noted to have better-designed storage spaces, avoiding wasted space by strategically placing pipes and utilities. However, it’s worth noting that fiberglass exteriors are more expensive to repair compared to aluminum.
