Thumbs up

I also have a 2015 36CKTS and love it. Lots of cabinet space. It is long but I have never had a problem finding a campground for it. I always look for a pull through site because I still can't figure how to back it up. I need driving lessons.http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...ies/crying.gif

You need PRACTICE, trial and error to improve backing. 1/2 time DW is my spotter and we communicate quietly via cell phones. The other 1/2 of the time, alone, I use 4 orange caution cones and pace it off. The last cone is at the driver door! That is MAX I can back up. No cameras. No CAMPGROUND HELPERS; turn your wheel this a way; no, the other this a way 😩. Usually I have to exit the truck 2x to assess alignment.
I did learn a few tricks: never use slider unless situation is impossible;
Always remember the 5er only turns when it has slow steady momentum; simple steering is better than aggressive; shut off your trailer brakes when backing. You do not need them.
Try to practice when you can and confidence quickly builds. ALWAYS assess your surroundings for obstructions BEFORE backing, not, ut ohhh!! 👍

The 36CKTS has a lots of cabinet/drawer space. Awesome unit.

Make sure you get the 6 point level up system. Easiest way to get it leveled with minimum hassle. Got mine with the separate washer and dryer also. They work great, wouldn't buy another TT without them. Don't get the combo unit.

We could not deal with the crook in the neck that a 36RE might give us. We went the CKTS route for that very reason. Love being able to sit in front of, rather than to one side, when watching a DVD of TV.

I was always told.. "Back up until it sounds expensive!"...
