First Dry Camping In New Cedar Creek

We just finished our first dry camping trip in our new Cedar Creek 30 RL.
We went to the Rincon Beach on the California coast. We are so impressed with our 5th wheel, nothing but quality workmanship. Everything went perfect, had no problems what so ever, everything worked like it should. One of the things that we liked...the bedroom TV run on 12V, so you can watch TV without running the generator, a great feature... here is a few pictures

Great photos, thanks for sharing. That's a great floorplan isn't it, ours is similar only in the Silverback line.

lived in Ventura County for 20 years and even though i moved to Napa, i still miss it. especially surfing that stretch you're at.
also rode my road bike between Ventura and Santa Barbara quite often.
now you know why i miss it so much!!!

it's real competitive for spots there but it's a little easier during the week, now that summer's over.

Great pictures! Now I understand better about Rincon Beach. Glad your first dry camping trip went well.

BTW
There's a photo contest here on the forum that you might wish to check out. That last pic might be a really good submission if I remember the guidelines correctly.

I love the Pacific Ocean and it's coastline - grew up in So Cal before it became So Kal - Sis & BIL still live there - took our Roadtrek from Texas thru Oxnard up to the top of Wa State along Hwys 1 & 101 - drove my M5 from Texas to Eureka then down the Coast to Oxnard, again Hwys 1 & 101 - hopefull will take the tt along the Coast, South to North, in 2013 - for me, there's no other region in the US that I care to visit more than there.....Bill

Very cool. Now where exactly were you? Looks like a parking lot. Can I accommodate a Georgetown?

It is located south of Santa Barbara on the old Hiway 1. No problem parking your motorhome. Beautiful place to watch the sunsets and the Dolphins play in the surf.

To answer you question about running a generator...Everybody uses their generator, the sound of the surf drowns out the noise ...we have a Honda 2000 that we use, nothing like spending a $1000 on a generator so you can make a cup of coffee
