Thumbs up Interested in 36CKTS or 36RE

We attended the Fort Worth RV show and the Cedar Creek 36CKTS was very impressive. It compared very favorably with other higher priced units. What options would you recommend? Is there a MSRP price list available.

We ordered ours with all of them and they are all great, except I would say don't waste your money on the bike rack hitch its flimsy, For sure get the 18 cu. ft. Stainless Steel Electric Refrigerator w/ Inverter, which is the house frig, heat pumps are really nice works down to 30, Trump mattress has held up good and is a dream to get into every night, 2nd air I fell is a must, if you want awning toppers make sure to get the metal covering option for them, Auto Leveling makes traveling a breeze, Air ride hitch helps the trailer ride a lot better, double pane windows help alot in the summer and winter, the full body paint keeps glean really good. Like I said we like them all, it's a matter of how much you want to spend.

Thanks for the information. Yes - the second air is a must. Is it also a heat pump if you order the heat pump option? I am warming up to the full body paint. After eight years the decals on our Terry are really shabby so I hope the full body paint gets rid of all the peel and stick accents.

Its all paint, no decal with the full body paint explorer package, they will paint it any colors you want also if you want to change it, with the 2nd air and heat pump option yes they both are heat pumps

We ordered a 2013 Cedar Creek 36CKTS at the Hershey RV Show. We picked it up in November and took it down to Disney World also in November. We love it and it worked without any problems other than a broke light fixture. The light fixture was replaced by Forest River.

We have the Touring Edition with the full body paint, main cabin heat pump, 2nd air conditioner up front, trail air hitch, bike hitch, auto leveling, and trump king size bed.

I did notice the pin weight is heavier than our 2007 Cardinal 34QS. We haven't weighed it yet, but I noticed the F350 dually lowered a little more.

I just ordered the Cedar Creek 36CKTS at the New Jersey RV show. This fifth wheel stood out among everything at the show. The pearl package is Hot! I am tired of the old white that gets dirty so easily. The frameless windows are a plus and look sleek. I added the second AC unit and the stackable washer and dryer. Delivery is in approximately 6 weeks. The only thing I wish is that they installed electric and a cable connection inside the storage area along with a TV mount arm which i may try and do on my own. Good luck with making your choice!

Yes, the RE doesn't have any seating looking straight at the tv so I did go with the ckts. Thanks for your input.

We got our 2013 36CKTS with 2nd A/C, thermopane windows, 6 pt. level-up, Trump king size mattress, extra 110A/C electrical outlet on the opposite side of the coach above the docking station, and the Trail Air shock absorbing king pin. Ours has the refrigerator with double style French doors and cherry wood front liners - it has plenty of space for my wife and I. This coach is very nice and we are looking forward to many years of enjoying it.

And I agree with the others that recommend forward viewing the the TV. It is much nicer than having the TV at the rear of the coach as in the 36CKTS. Our previous coach was a Silverback 29RE and it did have the rear TV. I'd vote for the 36CKTS hands down.

Docking station on opposite side?

Have you taken delivery yet?

I'm trying to find out the specs of the Trump king mattress!
Best of luck and happy camping!

I don't know what specs you were looking for on that mattress, I can tell you it's great. When we toured the factory she told me a lot of the workers buy them for their house, I am 6'4 240lbs mattress normally develop dips from me in a quick amount of time, and I buy high end mattress because I want to sleep good. This thing still makes love to my body when I get in it and no dips and its been 8 months.

We are using Regular King size sheets without any problems on our Mattress. Seems to fit ok even though it is an RV king size.

I don't know if you saw it on the other post I left but the wife found that on the mattress pad and fitted sheet they fit even better turning them the other way

We got ours with the bells & whistles sans awning toppers caused with the wind we get around TX the seem to generate more noise than anything else. With the crappy roads you'll pull it down, the TrailAir pin box will save you many aches & pains plus save your coach chassis to boot! Forget the bike hitch unless your an avid Armstrong type, you can do better in the after market or local welding shop.

We're livin & lovin our creek (2013 36 CKTS). Pulled her almost 11,000 miles & spent 15 weeks in her the first 10 months. We have about 8800 miles planed so far for this year.

Travel safe & enjoy your journeys!

We looked at allot of 5ers over the last 3 years. To us, the CC appears to be the biggest bang for the buck. Just under the high end 5ers... I like the exterior wall construction and overall fit and finish. There is room around the bed even with the king bed. Plus space for everyday stuff, like trash cans, and a laundry hamper. We ordered a 36 CKTS last week. Got the 9cuft fridge, DW likes the extra pantry space, plus I want 4ea 6volt batteries to run the coach not the fridge. Conv Oven, Heat pump, 2nd AC, Stacked W/D, 80" sofa, 6 point leveling, Slide toppers w/cvr, Trump King mattress, Trail Air, rear bike hitch, Thermopane windows., extra carpet padding.

Can't wait to get it.......

What you "need" depends on what type of usage you plan and where you plan to use it. When we bought ours we were not planning to move to SW FL. If we knew that, we would have thermal panes. We did know we were camping in hot climates so we got the bdrm AC. Overall, the Creek is a good choice for comfort and cost. Whatever you get, enjoy.
