Meanwhile, Crux is ready to find new dealers. "We're just looking to fill the U.S. with these specialty-type companies that like the off-road," she says. To hone in on what people want, Francis drove 56,000 miles last summer and fall, going to trade shows along the way and gathering input from RVers from what they wanted from a trailer. "I went back to the drawing board, added some new features, and ended up selling 56 of those (units) in six months." Since launching last year, Crux Expedition Trailers has had zero recalls, according to Francis. Crux will have three units (orange, silver, and black) of the same model on display at Open House, and will be serving up pastries as well as giving away a new iPad. And in case it gets too hot, Francis men- tions how lots of folks hung around her trailer at the last Overland Expo in Arizona because of how cool the canvas tent maintained the interior. Crux Expedition Trailers will showcase its Crux 1600 off-road unit for dealers during its first Open House Week exhibition. The trailer is part zinc-coated steel trailer, part canvas tent.
