Sweetlou, we purchased ours 3 weeks ago. There are several dealers in Texas that have the coach in stock. We have been very pleased so far. Have not been out yet but been just getting it ready for a trip in the next few weeks. We researched the 38rd and FB2 models for about 3 months before settling on the 38rd. Let me know if you have any questions. I will be glad to answer. Good luck!

Hubby fell in love with the FB2. I see the FB as a waste of space. I don't plan on spending a whole of time in the bathroom...lol Have now added outside kitchen as a must have for our next trailer.

Sweetlou, I tow with a 2013 Chevrolet 3500 HD Crew Cab Long bed single wheel Z71 4X4 Duramax. Also a Reese Signature V series 18K hitch. We have only had the coach for 4 weeks but have not seen anything yet that we dislike at this point. There are only a few options we did not get like generator, air ride hitch, dish washer, full body paint and dual pane windows. This is our third fifth wheel and I have been very impressed with cedar creeks construction and design. I would say you would be pretty happy with this coach. We researched the high end fifth wheels and mid range and almost went with Mobile Suites until we saw the CC. Good luck and let us know if you go with the 38RD.

We are eyeing the 38RD as well -- in fact, being able to get this unit with a 5.5KW Generator was a winning point for us (Walmart/Cracker Barrel overnights in the south in the SUMMER are miserable without A/C )


Now, I wonder how loud the 5.5KW Generator is?


What is the full body paint? And what made you decide against the air ride hitch?

Full body paint is coach is painted and the decals are painted. About a 5k cost. As for the air ride the coach did not have that available when we purchased. I am thinking about adding that in the near future.

38 has no upper kitchen cabinets. If you're a cook like I am, no space for dishes or glassware

Sweetlou, that is exactly what happen to us. We had three dealers and had them competing against each other. One dealer was more interested in moving product and not having it sit on their lot. Keep pushing on the exact deal you want and they will come around the longer it sits on their lot.

The full body paint IS pricey! I wonder though if when we retire (and assuming we upgrade to a Creek ) will the full body paint stand up better to 1/2 timing or better than would the Gel coat?

We costed the Generator and was amazed to find out RV Nation would sell us the 5.5KW one for $3,675 (MSRP $5,500) Sure it eats up your front basement but having generator backup when park power goes out or if you need to dry camp is one of those nice to have features. PLUS, we life in the south where weather can take home power out for days...I am betting you could rig up something so that the RV Generator could power the refer/freezer and maybe the A/C in the house (it IS a 5.5KW unit after all)

Any thoughts on this?

I have been told Air ride is virtually a mandatory option (unless you pull your rig with a Semi ::Grins at Dblr:

Bob, you are correct about the Trail Air, but I am adding a air ride hitch to the truck and plan on not getting a Trail air on the next unit.

But WHY would you need it with that BEAST of a Volvo Semi you tow your Creek with?

Ok Bob get it right, it's a beast of a Kenworth and it helps smooth the ride as even with air ride everything on the truck there is still a lot of force put on the frames of a camper, plenty of power & stopping power just want the best ride I can get for the smallest of problems.

Have been looking at these on the Internet for some time. After finally touring one in person and looking at other fifth's, the wife and I are convinced this will be our next one. Have a 2008 Ford f350 but still a bit concerned about the weight. What is everyone using to pull these and looking for good or bad about thus unit? Plan to use this as a retirement traveler or permanent residence down south till we find a lake home.

In addition, providing we order, the wife prefers the kitchen pantry and the smaller refrigerator instead of the larger refrigerator with no pantry. Your thoughts and opinions are welcome.
