Doesn't matter if Autocorrect spells a word or I spell a word.......if I'd just stop being lazy and actually proof read BEFORE hitting 'submit', then it wouldn't matter who misspelled it or what grammar was bad, it could be corrected.

But I am in too big of a hurry, it seems. I have a lot of important nothing to do, ya know.

About that cord reel....I didn't order it on our build because I already had one that I took out of our trade in. Well low and behold, when our unit arrived at the dealer, there was the cord reel. I just thought, thank you Cedar Creek. Seems to me that CC is just putting the cord reel in every unit out the door. If it were me, I wouldn't order the reel and just see if it comes with one. The one that I took out of the trade in camper I purchased online and it is a better quality Mor/ryde reel than came with the camper.
I have them both installed in the basement and have a 30amp cord on one and a 50amp cord on the other. Works great for me!!

Cedar Creek Build

I got the residential refrigerator and the 5.5 generator with inverter. Love refrigerator. (We are full time RV'ers). That 50 amp cord is a bear to lift and put in a basket. I got cord real. On demand water heater is fantastic, no more navy showers. Pushing back lazy-boy recliners is no big deal when folding up. Like the fact that not only do they recline, but rock. I have the trail-air-ride hitch. I like it. Did not get solar panels, but it is on my list.

OK...first of all thank you everyone for all your opinions, experience and suggestions. You've really made me think of some things that I hadn't thought of before and that was my whole point in creating this thread. I've revised my build and here is the new one. Two items, in red, are the options that I'm still on the fence about....kind of. I'll explain below the photo:



TrailAir Hitch Coupler (pin box): This is a $900+ option. Currently I have a MOR/ryde pin box on my Denali trailer and I love it! So I'm thinking of swapping the stock pin box from the CC with my MOR/ryde on the Denali. If for some reason that doesn't work then I'll pay $600 for a new MOR/ryde instead of $900+ for the TrailAir.

12' Slide Room Awning: No one brought this up except for Jim34RL who stated he wished he had ordered it. I'm guessing no one has this? This is the option I'm really 50/50 about. Just don't know. Wife said, "Will we really use that 2nd awning much?". "Dunno" I said.

Cord Reel: Opted out of the cord reel because as some mentioned I can get a better, more sturdy one for cheaper. FR wants $217 for the cord reel option that many has said is flimsy and cheap. MOR/ryde has a solid looking one for just under $100 and an even beefier (word?) option for around $170. That works for me and as someone suggested I believe I'll mount it in the front bay.

Mattress: Opted out of the Luxury King Mattress. On our king bed at home we have a 3" natural latex topper and absolutely love it! I think we will get one for the stock king in the trailer and save another $300 off the trailer price.

Fridge: This was tough decision but decided on the residential 20 cu ft. We figure that this 34RL2, if all goes as planned, will be the RV before our retirement RV. We've had experience with gas/elec fridge but never resi fridge in a trailer. So this will gain us that experience and put us in a better position to make the correct choice for us when we order our retirement rig in 5 to 8 years. Now whether that retirement rig will be a 5th, Class A, B+ we have no idea. I said to the wife, "why does our retirement rig need to be something with wheels? Why not a private jet?". To which she replied to my sarcastic statement, "Have you looked at our portfolio? It's a pretty thin folder." Can't a man dream?

Generator: Frankly it's just too steep for something I may use just a couple times per year. It's a $5,858 option. I'll pass this time.

200W Solar Panel: It's a $1,000 option. I decided to get the solar prep only and in the future can add 600W of solar panels for the same price.

King Dish Satellite: Opted out of this $1,189 option. I like the new version of the King Tailgater Bundle instead. Better for wooded campgrounds, which are of course abundant up here in the Pacific Northwest, and more than half the price of the CC roof mounted option.

Bedroom Wall Heater: Decided against it. As someone pointed out we are getting the heat pump/AC upgrade and that should work fine. Then there is always the good ol' gas furnace standby. $362 for overkill heating option? No thanks.

Bike Rack Hitch Receiver: Although we love bringing our bikes, too many of you stated how flimsy this hitch receiver is. We will find a better solution.

Dual Pane Windows: Now that I think about it, this one should be circled in red on that build sheet as well. Still not sure. EVERYONE is saying it's just a matter of time until they leak and then constantly fog up. Costs about $300 per window to have them repaired...repaired the correct way that is. It's a $1,450 option and my gut is telling me to skip it this time. My gut is usually correct. Here is a good read

I believe that covers it. This new build saves me $5,444 in options over the previous build at the beginning of this thread. Still have a couple of things to decide on such as the awning for the slide out, the pin box and the dual pane windows. But we are getting closer!

We got the awning on the slide out thinking two things, one it will give us an area to have our picnic table under shade and leave the main awning area for our chairs and second it works very well to shade the inside of the coach if the afternoon sun is on that side keeping the inside cooler and a/c not working as hard. Just a little more to think about, good luck.

Talk to the dealer about the TrailAir pin box or come for the FROG rally next year and get the pin box installed then. Cedar Creek fixed my front cap yesterday and my tv mount, I was looking at the TrailAir pin box and I asked what the price was. It was $578 mounted, I have a new hitch. Oh yes if you ever need to talk to the factory, Denise Davis is a A plus, plus A. Denise is awesome!!!

Number 1 you made a great choice by choosing Cedar Creek, they are great people to work with. At Cedar Creek you are treated more as a friend, I get the feeling at Cedar Creek you are not just a customer but a friend. Denise and for that matter everyone that I talked to yesterday was great. I'll let you in on a little secret treating the customer this way does not start at the bottom, it starts at the top. I have always been treated as a friend at Cedar Creek and it doesn't matter who I talk too. If you have any trouble with your new camper and you can't get help at your dealer then by all means call Denise Davis, she is totally awesome. Enjoy your new camper. Oh I drive DW crazy wanting to change things in the camper

And no regrets regarding the slide out awning? Would you order it again?

Strange. Even on Amazon the same TrailAir pin box is $900+. Guess they buy enough they can sell it for that price but still a $900+ from the dealer. Dealer pocketing the extra $400 I suppose.
