Cruiser’s New Essence and Stryker Models Will Surprise & Delight You

April 2, 2024

One thing we love about new model years at Cruiser RV is the opportunity to take our customers’ feedback and make changes we know they’ll love. Whether it’s updating tech features, refurnishing according to current design trends, or designing innovative new floor plans, we always have exciting developments to share for the new model year.

So if you’re shopping for a new RV this year, take a look at the options below. We added a new line of fifth wheels, Essence, and designed new Stryker floor plans for anyone who wants a toy hauler. Here’s a peek at all the new updates across these two brands for 2024.

Essence 25RK

Our newest fifth wheel, Essence 25RK, packs a luxurious floor plan within a 28’9 ½” footprint and 7,808 lbs. of dry weight. It’s an ideal couple’s coach, though it can sleep up to four people, and it includes 245 sq. ft. of airy, open interior space.

Interior Features

Starting in the rear kitchen, you’ll find a 16 cu. ft., 12V four-door fridge alongside a stove and an over-the-range microwave. Abundant cabinet and drawer storage can hold all your kitchen utensils, while the workstation sink with a waterfall faucet makes it easy to prep food or clean up after meals. Across the room, there’s a full-sized pantry and a hutch that can serve as a coffee bar or provide additional storage space. A 42-inch dinette includes booth seating and an overhead TV that’s perfect to view from the dual theater seats on the opposite wall.


Down the hall, there’s a full bathroom with a sink, toilet, medicine cabinet, and a shower where you can take full advantage of the on-demand water heater. Next door, a queen bed with a pillow-top mattress rests on a base that offers additional under-bed storage. There are hanging wardrobes on either side of the bed, plus a walk-in closet in the corner with washer/dryer prep.


Exterior Features

Outside, there’s a 16-foot awning to shade the front patio, plus an outdoor fridge for keeping cool drinks on hand. Pass-through storage with LED lights can hold all your favorite camping equipment, while the Curt Rota-Flex 16k pin box ensures a secure connection for towing.


Stryker 2516

Garage Features

In the toy hauler category, we’re pleased to debut the Stryker 2516. It can sleep 5-6 guests in 233 sq. ft., measuring just under 30 feet long and weighing 7,662 lbs. dry. The garage is a generous 16’7” long and includes a 30-gallon fuel station for keeping motorized toys running longer.

The eight-foot, easy-load garage ramp converts to a patio with the help of the included patio rails, and inside the garage, there are 5,000 lb. tie-down rings welded into the floor so you can secure your toys while you’re in motion. When you’re not using it for storage, the garage includes a power queen bed above a convertible dinette with opposing sofas, both offering sleeping space for guests.


Interior Features

The kitchen includes an 8 cu. ft. gas/electric fridge, a residential microwave, and a three-burner range with a glass cover. A walk-in pantry holds plenty of food for long trips away. Plus, with a 108-gallon capacity in the fresh water tank, you’ll have ample hot water for cooking, doing the dishes, or taking long showers. An indoor/outdoor table lets you take meals inside or out on the front patio.


The main bedroom has private, secondary access to the bathroom, a king-sized bed, and a built-in pet palace where your dogs can curl up at night. Built-in cabinets in the bedroom contain shelving to hold all your clothing and other items, and there’s a dedicated wardrobe space for hanging garments. In the bathroom, there’s a spacious shower with a skylight, a large, mirrored medicine cabinet, and a sink with a high-rise faucet. A bonus shelf on the wall has hooks to hold your towels and clothing while you’re getting cleaned up.


Exterior Features

Outside, there’s a power awning with LED lights and exterior speakers that tie into the premium sound system. The front cap is aerodynamic painted and molded fiberglass, and the fuel station is the perfect accompaniment to the standard generator prep. Rear and side LED flood lights help illuminate your surroundings at night, which is especially handy if you like camping off-grid. There are extra large, slam-latch baggage doors that secure the pass-through storage compartment, with magnetic catches to hold them open when you want to retrieve your favorite camping gear.


The coach is constructed with five-sided aluminum framing for lightweight durability, while surround seal slides with rain gutters protect your coach against water damage. Azdel composite sidewalls insulate better against noise, weather, and extreme temperatures than wood, at a fraction of the weight.

To handle heavy loads, Stryker comes with an upgraded suspension with greasable shackle bolts, industry-leading axles with self-adjust brakes, and 16-inch E-rated tires. Power tongue and stabilizer jacks make setting up fast and simple, while dual 30-gallon LP tanks give you plenty of propane for your trip. The extended season package offers radiant foil and ducted heat, and a dual-ducted A/C system helps keep the cool air flowing in hotter climates.

Stryker 2614

Garage Features

With a slightly smaller 14-foot garage, Stryker 2614 still provides accommodations for up to six guests in 239 sq. ft. of interior space. It measures 31’9” and weighs 8,113 lbs. dry, with a larger bathroom than the previous Stryker model.


Bedroom Features

Starting at the front of the coach, there’s a king-sized bed in the main bedroom, with twin wardrobes on either side of the mattress. Overhead cabinet space can hold a lot of cargo, while a shelf above the headboard keeps smaller items safely contained. There’s a nightstand on both sides of the bed, with a nearby outlet for powering a CPAP machine or alarm clock. On the opposite wall, there’s prep for you to install a TV, so you can watch your favorite shows cozied up in bed.

The bedroom also gives you a private entrance to the bathroom, where you’ll find a corner shower, a full-length linen closet, and a shelf with hooks for hanging towels. The sink offers extended counter space and a high-rise faucet, and there’s a mirrored medicine cabinet above where you can store your toothbrush.


Living Room and Kitchen Features

In the living area, there are two armchairs you can position however you like. The kitchen includes an 8 cu. ft. combination gas/electric fridge and a three-burner range with a glass cover to convert it into counter space when it’s not in use. You get a large residential microwave and a stainless steel, undermount sink. An indoor/outdoor table means you can take your meals wherever you like. Inside, the table rests between two convertible sofas against the back wall that convert into additional sleeping space, along with the power queen bed that lowers from the ceiling as needed.

The floors inside include tie-down rings that can secure toys up to 5,000 lbs. while your trailer is in motion. The ramp leads to a 102-inch opening into the garage, and an optional three-season glass door lets you use the rear patio while keeping your coach sealed against bugs. A 30-gallon fuel tank includes a pump so you can fill up your motorized toys right from your toy hauler.


Construction and Exterior Features

To better handle hauling heavy toys, the coach includes an upgraded suspension and 16-inch E-rated tires. Industry-leading axles with self-adjust brakes keep you in control on the road, while five-sided aluminum framing keeps the coach lighter so you can carry more. Azdel sidewalls also reduce weight by providing better insulation than wood. Surround seal slides with rain gutters keep rain from seeping into the RV and causing water damage, and an extended season package gives you radiant foil and ducted heat to stay warm in cooler seasons.

There’s also a 108-gallon fresh water tank to help you dry camp longer. Standard generator prep goes great with the fuel station, so you can keep your toys and your generator running smoothly. Exterior speakers pair well with the 19-foot awning over the front patio, helping create the perfect outdoor leisure space. WiFi prep means you can stream all your favorite music or talk radio, while cable/satellite prep gives you options for watching TV on rainy days.
