It's too bad that companies like Glendale, Sunnybrook, Carriage, etc. are no longer in business. Newmar has stopped making towables this year because it became "apparant to Newmar management that the entire RV towable market has changed considerably and become more competitive over the past several years." So, companies like Forest River and Keystone can keep cranking out units with "beautiful" interiors but, IMO, don't hold a candle to the quality of the aforementioned RVs. I had a hunch that was true, bought it anyway. I'll make the best of it. I do love the RV lifestyle!
Sounds like you are really fond of a particular group of RVs and that's understandable. Hopefully you will be able to enjoy your FR unit too.

Happy camping,
Terier

I just got word that my fiver is complete and is being sent out for delivery. Of course, this can still take 2 weeks to get to the dealer but at least she is on the way. I am so anxious now.

I'm sure you will be bouncing off the walls until Friday. I'm sure everything will go well for you. Be sure to post a few pics once you take it out.

Glad to hear she has arrived. Pay close attention to every detail, regardless whether large or small. Keep copious notes, take lots & lots of photos & remember that date stamped photos are also evidence. Keep abreast of similar trailers on this forum. Another good source of info that is dedicated solely to the Cedar Creek line is the Cedar Creek RV Owners Club (CCRVOC) .

Travel safe & enjoy your journeys!

No pdi tomorrow, they found a crack in the hydraulic resevoir and broken hydraulic lines and they have to order parts to repair.

If your dealer does his PDI as he should, when you do yours with the dealer there shouldn't be any real issues found. The 34rlsa is a beautiful unit, I know you're going to love it.

Sorry to hear about the hydraulics; it's much better to get it out into the open before delivery rather than later. Try to get your dealer to send you the PDI inspection form so that you can get familiar w/ it before you arrive. That will help you to do a better inspection & speed things along (reduce time spent in the blistering heat). Hope for cooler weather ahead. Now you have the time to plan your first trip. Enjoy your new Creek, I love mine & can't wait to get back on the road (NC for fall foliage is next)

Travel safe & enjoy your journeys!
