Might we ask what you plan on towing these with? The Crossroads will all be in the 3500-4000 pin weight. And the Crossroads are a full step up in quality from the Solitudes. And probably a full step up in $$$$.

Good choices, and like Notanlines stated, depends really on what tow vehicle you have or can get. We looked for about six months and wife was set on Grand Design, due to reputation and floor plan, 390RK. However, we visited an RV show recently and came across a great deal on a new 2019 Jayco North Point 383FKWS - couldn't beat the price and the layout was lot more spacious than the GD. So far no real issues other than the two ACs are not keeping up with the summer heat and looking to add the 3rd AC that the unit is prepped for.
Crossroads/Redwood collection is higher end model and more $$ than GD or the rest, but quality seems to be on par with the $$. However, all RVs will have issues.
Another thing to consider is if you plan on full-time or not...depends on
what you should look for if want to go Full-time - four seasons designs, etc...

oh and not planning for FT but want to buy as though we are, just in case...we plan to keep home base, but right price and we'd let it go

We have always liked the Wildcats for their low cost and quality. I don't know the Solituds but the Crossroads are nicer than Wildcats but far more money.
