Cedar Creek Champagne Edition

Looking at a CC Champagne Edition really like the layout and upgrades they have in them, has anyone bought one or owns one between 2017-2019 model years?

Looking for feedback but I think i May have to upgrade to a new F350 Crew SB PSD bc my payload and toeing is not enough on my 2016?

Might want to consider going to a Dually for that rig.

I don't have the Champagne, but we are very pleased with our Hathaway Edition.

I, too, have the Hathaway. Full time for 4 years, 37,000 miles on RV. Very, Very happy. You do need a dually.

Cedar Creek Champagne Edition

I am the proud owner of a 2018 Champagne 38EL and love it. I tow with a 2015 Ram Crew Cab Laramie DRW long bed. It is the perfect combination for us. Handles wonderfully. GCW for us is 26,350. That is fully loaded for us. Happy Glamping!!!

Love our Cedar Creek Champagne

We have a 2017 Champagne and love it. We have owned it for 2 years now and are getting ready to sell our house and move to full time on the road for a few years. We upgraded the mattress to a sleep number to match what we have at home and will be replacing the stock tires this year.

We have a Ford F-350 Turbo Diesel long bed with Dual rear tires and it handles great. I wouldnít recommend single rear tires for hauling a Champagne. Seriously recommend going with a diesel as well.
Good luck to you.

Like I said before if we went a bit bigger then what we have now I def would go F350 Dually just hate driving it as a daily driver that is what has kept us to 35 fleet and 12,000 lbs trailers so I don’t have to upgrade.

Cedar Creeks tend to be heavy so Dually would be the best but since we don’t FT in our unit we have to stay where we are bc I don’t want to spend more money then I have.

I don’t have the cedar creek but I have a 42ft Heritage Glen. I ordered a F350 XLT diesel dually to pull it. The Dudley option was less than 1,000 retail and it makes a huge difference. I drive the truck as my daily driver to my office job and after 2 years I am still love the truck

Bought a 17, 38el in September of 16. Have been fulltime since. We stay in one spot in KY but have taken it over 10000 miles. We love the layout, the roomy bathroom, the large TV, and room around king bed. We upgraded to 3rd ac, second awning on slide out, washer dryer and dishwasher.
I first pulled it with a f350 ext cab long bed srw with airbags, and it pulled fine. Up graded to F450 crew long bed drw, pulls great.

Per my signature, I have a 2018 38EL Champagne that weighs 16,300# loaded and pull it with a 2017 F350 SWB Crew Cab 4x2. My truck has the 11,300# GVWR package. The 4x2 was hard to find, but increases my bed load capacity over a 4x4. My pin weight is 3,360# which is almost 700# below my capacity. The CC is 96" wide unit which I feel is more maneuverable than the 101" units. I did add Sumo rear springs to increase stability in turns. I carry 80# in rear tires and 65# in front. I've had it for more than 1 and 1/2 years and put 7000 miles traveling. No problems and it makes a great ride when unhitched. I've had a dually and would again if I pulled a heavier unit, but there is no comparison between them for daily driving. JMHO

I have a 2016 CC Champagne and we love it, I pull it with my 2014 F250 SWB with Firestone air bags and it pulls like a dream. Never had an issue.

When you upgraded trucks, you got a much better engine and transmission. One thing I would like in a F-450 is the tighter turning radius. I need a football field to turn my truck around! You probably also have the 410 rear end which adds more pulling power.
