New 34IK

Hey everyone, just picked up our new CC 34 IK. Click image for larger version

Here’s a pic in rainy weather right before I stowed till next year. We ordered it and it came to the dealer a week before Thanksgiving.

The inspection went very well. It sits a little nose high so I may have it adjusted next year. The outside doors for the propane and for the battery compartment are very tight. But that was it, tech told me the inspection was basically nill. They had it very clean. We ordered it at Hatfield’s off RT 23 north of Delaware Ohio, thanks to them.

Forest River put a booth dinette in for us and it is beautiful. The table top is made from the same wood as the rest of the coach and it looked like a furniture company put it together. Plus it can be a bed for my grandkiddies.

I definitely have a lot to learn. Lots of technology. I had to drive it through a rain storm as my first tow for about 45 minutes. Truck is a 2018 Ram Cc 3500 SWB SB. Truck felt in charge of the trailer and it towed and stopped very easy.

Anyway, right now we are very pleased.

Thanks I’m a long time Forest River Fanboy. I’ve had 2 Rockwood pop ups, a Rockwood hybrid, and a Class C Sunseeker and now this Cedar Creek. They have all been nice campers. But this by far is the prettiest one I’ve ever owned. I hope it holds up well!

Congrats, we did the same thing last week. Drove it home in the rain and hated to put it away wet. You're right, almost too much technology but it should make travels more enjoyable.

Congratulations, that's a good looking rig! We picked up our Silverback 33IK in Ohio in October. Fortunately, we got it back to Georgia and managed to get in one trip in before winterizing it.

We like it a lot. Only problem we've encountered is that one latch on the battery compartment door does not protrude deep enough to engage. We have an appointment with Amish Family RV in May, and I'm sure that Orvan can take care of that for us as well as any other potential problems that he may find.

Can you give me Orvans number I probably should have mine inspected before next fall? I have the same problem though probably not as bad as you.

Thanks!

I believe Orvan's number is (260) 593-0951. When the machine answers, you hit option 1 to leave a message for the shop.

We were able to schedule a date in May to coincide with a trip to Michigan. We bought our trailer on October 17th, so wanted to have it checked out by Orvan while it is still under warranty.

Hey, that's a pretty nice rig all around, MikeRP, truck included! We did much the same thing, purchasing a used 35K just before our Canadian Thanksgiving so didn't get a chance to use it yet. But one nice way of passing a Canadian winter is planning our camping adventures for next year!

MikeRP - we have emailed each other, but I wasn't sure who you were. Well, this is the first time I've seen your setup....Very nice Mike!

I sure hope you like it....and yes, Old Bleu (Tim - I know him) has given you the correct info for Orvan.....we took our brand new 2019 34RL2 straight from the dealer in Cincinnati to Orvan.....we didn't know what was wrong since we hadn't spent any time in it....he still looked it over and found several things that would end up being problems in a few years....all work ($1000) was billed to the factory. He said it was one of the better built units.....which we passed along to the factory....since we know a few of those folks also and stopped in while at Orvan's. He's like 2 miles from the factory.

We just added disk brakes to our unit, but really haven't been able to take it out...she's covered for the winter.

Enjoy - safe travels,
Mike (Splashers3 on RV.Net)
