We do not own a Cottage unit, but we do own a 2009 Cedar Creek 36RD5S. We have had it for 5 years this October. We have been full time in it since we purchased it. We are very happy with the construction, and service we have received from the factory. They are very responsive and helpful. Not to say we have not had issues, but everything we have had, it was taken care by Cedar Creek over and above anything I expected. Cedar Creek has been there every time!!!
Hope this helps and God bless,
