My wife and I had a CC factory tour last week. We really enjoyed it. Very interesting to see the Creeks, Silverbacks, and Cottages all coming off the same line. They turn out 11 units every day. Very interesting to see how the underbelly is put together and the walls as well.
I highly recommend every prospective CC buyer do this tour. Current owners as well. The tours are held every Tuesday and Thursday at 2 PM. The tour takes about 2 hours. It is best if you call Cedar Creek Division and make an appointment just to be sure the tour schedule has not been changed.
We also took our Creek to the factory the day before our tour and had some warranty work done. I had a punch list of about 9 or 10 items. I told the guys they were listed in order of priority. The worse problem I had was a leaky black tank valve. I wanted to be sure to get that fixed. We took it in about 8 AM (they start work at 5 AM) and we got a call to come pick it up at about 3. When we got there we found that they had a gang of about 5 guys descend on it and ALL the items had been repaired, even some burned out light bulbs! Then we got to talking to the service guys and they went around and made some very minor repairs, like tightening a few screws, fixing a slightly bent water heater door, and replacing the sewer hose compartment. They were almost fanatical about getting everything perfect! This was the best customer service I've ever seen - bar none!
The factory is on the east side of the little village of Topeka, Indiana. We stayed at the Shipshewana South RV Park, which is about 10 miles north of the plant. Nice park and nice people. While you are there, explore the Amish country in the area. When you go outside early in the morning, instead of hearing traffic noise, you can hear the clip-clop, clip-clop of the horse-drawn Amish buggies. Very peaceful. Oh, and do check out the bakery located about 3 miles west of Shipshewana on US Hwy 20. It is called the Rise n Roll Bakery and oh my goodness, very yummy stuff in there.
