CC 36 CKTS Purchase

I looks like we have narrowed our search down on our first fiver. The CC 36CKTS is in the final round and I need your input. If you own this model, we would like to know if you are happy with the unit and what made you select it. What are some areas the unit may be lacking and any special features we should consider when ordering. I would also like to know what your Tow Vehicle is. Thanks for your assistance.

Cedar Creek 36CKTS

We bought a 2013 Cedar Creek 36CKTS back in October. We have taken it on one trip to date, since we bought it late in the year. We drove it from Maryland to Disney World in November and spent a week in Disney World. The RV worked great. We only had a broken light fixture, which was replaced under warranty. We liked the lay out and the convenience of the fresh water, cable, holding tank valves and winterizing valves in one location. We pull the RV with a 2008 F350 dually diesel with 4.10 rear end gear. I did notice it had more pin weight than our previous 2007 Cardinal 34QS. I haven't weighted it yet, but noticed the truck settled a little lower when the RV was hitched.

Thanks MDCRAB, the dry weight is at 12076 and 2389 on the pin. I was thinking of adding the airbags to my 2012 Doge Ram 2500 4x2. it has the 373 rear end. Based on the manufactures information I feel I would be ok on the weight.

The thread title sounded like someone brought a new RV so I clicked on it to find out more.

Sometimes I will use the "New Posts" option but use the "Recent Threads" option most. In the "Recent Threads" option the line-up gets bumped with new incoming posts. Once I post this message it will display at the top of the list until another post comes in bumping it down.

You may need to stay on top on this thread to call attention to it for more feedback. Good luck.

Before anyone gets into the tow rates on the Ram and this unit the manufactures information is as follows:

6.7L Cummins�� Turbo Diesel I-6 6-Speed Auto- matic Transmission

Sorry I hit send before I was done on the above comments. I am considering the air bags because the website for Doge post the following information for my truck.

Max Payload
2,182lbs
Max Tow
13,050lb

Crazy, both the 15,000 max and the 13, 000 max come from Dodges official information. One is the owners manual and the other is their website.

I would be a little concerned with a Ram 2500. I originally had a F250, but the cargo weight rating was 1900 lbs. We traded up to the F350 because it had cargo weight rating of 4400 lbs. I figure the pin weight is close to 3000 lbs. You may OK on the combined weight rating, but you may light on what pin weight you can carry. The air bags may
help the sag, but do not do anything for the axle weight rating.

I meant to include that too as a possible reason. BTW I do understand how a post with a good number of viewing with no feedback can bring up questions as to "Why no feedback?". Been there, done that...
