Experiences with Cedar Creek 38RD

Hi all! We currently tow a travel trailer, but plan to move to a fifth wheel next year and start full-timing. My wife saw the 38RD and fell in love with it because of the sliding doors that can close off the rear den. I'd like to hear of owners' experiences with it, good and bad. And, is it suitable for full-timing? What size tow vehicle would be required?

You will have to look for a good used one or one that a dealer still has sitting on their lot as they discontinued that model. I think full time is possible in it and it was a floor plan we liked also Good luck in your search.

We have had our 38rd for 1 1/2 years and love it. We only weekend and vacation camp. Plan to use full time when we retire. We love ours. This is our 3rd fifth wheel and think this is the best yet. Have had little problems. Only one nagging problem with the swing arm under the dinning room slide and we are evaluating how to fix since CC can not come up with a suitable fix. We had been sadden when they discontinued the model because we think there are a lot of folks that would end up buying this model if they really saw the space especially in the rear living room.

We have pulled this with a 1 ton single wheel Chevrolet crew cab z71 long bed and now our dually f350 crew cab long bed. Pulls very nicely.

If you can find a new or used one I highly recommend. By the way the outside kitchen is great when you entertain or have the grandkids with you.

Good luck in your search.

Do you know for how many years it was made?

I believe it was 2 years. 14, 15 & 16 I think.

Smile cedar creek 38RD

I full time in my Cedar Creek 38RD and love it. I've only had it 4 months, but it is the best trailer I've ever had. The living room with the double slide outs and door that close for privacy is the best part about it. No, that's not true. Everything about it is great. I love it. Love living in it. I hope you can get one.

Beth, full time RV'er

We full-time in our 2015 38RD. Pull with a Ram 3500. Spent 2 years looking at all kinds of rigs. Really like the floor plan. Had some issues with LED lights failing. Henry Sears and the factory team rapidly sent replacements. We recognize that the rig is fairly large- 40' - 7" long and 13-6 tall - so we take care choosing routes and campgrounds. So far, have not had problems in private or state parks. Had a tire failure in May and replaced all rubber with American made tires. Plenty of storage below. Choose your dealer carefully. Most are not worth much after you sign papers. Good luck and happy travels.

Smile Experiences with 38RD

We like our 38RD as well and have had it since last November. A few small issues one being the dining room slide power cable - same as TTANOUS mentioned. This was taken care of by my local dealer under warranty. The dometic bedroom AC sheared its motor bolts and was also taken care of under warranty as well. I am planning on addressing the front cap fade out in the near future. Generally the trailer is well put together I would by a CC again.

We bought a 38RD back in April I think down in Ashland, VA, and I thought the dealer had another one up in northern VA. I'll PM you the dealer info. We love the camper, no major issues. Tons of underneath storage, I'm not sure why they aren't making it anymore. The outdoor kitchen is awesome!
