Cedar Creek 30RL

I have a Forest River Wildcat Sterling 32RL that I have had nothing but bad luck with, I think it was made on Monday by a bunch of drunks. I am looking at a 30RL, I have had three campers and two have been good. Over all what would you say about the CC, anything I should ask for in options. The camper will be factory ordered, I like thermal pane windows, also the level up and the Trump mattress, how about the cord reel? I plan to put a bedroom A/C in not when I order it, been looking at the Dometic Penguin 11000 btu or a Coleman Mach 1 11000 btu

When we order our CC, we're getting the cord reel. Why? Because it'll be a 50 amp cord, thicker and heavier than our 30 amp. We're also putting in the residential fridge. DW wants the conv micro. So far as the exterior goes, we're going with the custom paint because the clear coat goes over the decals too. Look into the re-bond carpet pad.

I have the cord reel and realyy do like it. It makes storing 50 amp cord a breeze and is super easy to use. The only draw back is that it does take up some space but is still worth it.

I had a similar experience with my 2008 RKBS Wildcat. Problems from day one and it got to the point that RVing wasn't fun anymore. Since trading for our CC Silverback last year my wife and I are having a great time camping and traveling again.

I am going to buy the 30RL, we had one to many little problems with the Wildcat this weekend, we had already made our minds up to keep the wildcat 32RL and then one more little problem showed up today and now we will get the 30RL. I kinda of wanted Thermal Pane windows but I have to order that camper and it would be 3 months and have a trip planned to Yellowstone before then, would you wait? This camper has the cord reel and the conv mirco and Explorer Package,it has the Trump mattress, slide room toppers,leather Lazy-boy, level-up,2nd A/C but what I really want to know will it pull good with my 2012 Silverado 3500HD? Will I be able to keep the truck in cruise? I just can't ride with my foot on the fuel pedal all the time, I have an old foot, the rest of me is 25 but I have a 67 year old foot.
