length of fifth

Measured my fifth wheel today and it was 36 feet not including hitch and rear ladder. It is a 34 foot Cedar Creek so how do they measure it. Standard trailers are from rear to hitch so do they measure fifth wheelers differently.

Model numbers rarely are the RVs actual length.
My 23SS is actually almost 25 feet long.

At 1 time they measured the frame only, not the over truck bed area. My 303RLS would have been 30' back then but not the builder calls it 35'. Not much rhyme or reason today.

You didnít say which model of Cedar Creek you have but currently the shortest CC which is the 34RL is 36 feet 8 inches. You donít judge length by the model number, you have to look at the specifications of the unit for the actual length. All fifth wheel manufacturers have been like this for years.

My 29RL CC Silverback is 34 feet 6 inches.

I have a 3200BHT Tracer and it's overall length is 36'9 but a living space of 32' (ish). Most model numbers are the length of the rig, but mainly only living space not the overall length of the rig. We looked at a 36' 5'er and it had an overall of 40'

My TT is a 310BHDS

It's overall length is 35' bumper to ball. It's 31' log if you measure the living space thus the number 31 in the model number.

These are model numbers to differentiate between the units in a product line, they are not intended to designate the length of a unit.
