We have purchased a 2007, 37ft Cedar Creek. Will be picking up end of June.It has never been off the Dealer's Lot. Is there anything we should know for final inspection day? We are so excited. We've been waiting for this day for 5 years. Even though we've done lots of research, we do not know anything about this 5th wheel.

My advice is the same for ANY trailer.
Do a THOROUGH pre-delivery inspection.
Make them show you how to operate every appliance.
Take notes and pictures if there is any doubt about remembering
which valve/switch etc does what.
Look for any water marks inside anything.
A new trailer can leak.
A year old leaky trailer could have rot.
You don't want any water spots inside anywhere.
Test the fridge on gas and electric.
Test the water heater on gas and electric.
Operate every window.
Are they smooth or stuck???
Every fan, every light, everyTHING.
Do cabinet doors and drawers open and close and are any
of them crooked?
Any inside or outside trim strips missing or loose or exposed
seams that should have been covered?
Stick your head in every storage area and look for leaks.
Bring a good flash light and wear "every day" clothes so you can
crawl around if necessary.
Look on top.
If it's grungy up there, they should wash it.
Look hard at the awning.
Does it have mildew or stains anywhere???
Make them show you how to operate it and then do it
yourself without their help to make sure you can do it!
You should get an installation/owner manual for EVERY appliance
from the stove exhaust hood to the central AC and furnace.
Take their time.
Take your time.
Take 2 hours.
It's YOUR money so don't be short changed on the check out.
They will be much more willing to fix stuff before you sign the final papers
and give them the final check.
Happy Camping!!!

If you have a TV, that comes with your camper, be SURE it's a Digital tuner, or you won't get any reception very soon!! Randy

Thank you very much, your list will be very helpful. We are so excited, we would not have thought of common sense check points.
