New Cedar Creek

I couldnít believe that Cedar Creek would eliminate the rear cap on the Hathaway, from the rear you canít tell the difference between a Silverback and Hathaway. The plant manager told me you could not option the rear cap in. Me and DW love our Cedar Creek but when it comes time to trade Iíll look for SOB. I would not be surprised that in a few years that Cedar Creek stops making the Hathaway. I canít tow the Cedar Creek Champagne with my SRW and DW said no dually. Took the tour and Cedar Creek has some pretty campers, Cedar Creek has been great for us, Iíll sure hate to leave themClick image for larger version

I am completely unimpressed with the wood that is used in the cabinets. Personally I think it looks cheap. I'm unimpressed with the two models on display at the fairgrounds.

I came over from the Montana camp … all three of my units over the years had the molded rear cap. My Silverback didn't and I thought it would be a constant reminder every time I walked around the back of it. I actually began liking the look and it continued to grow on me to the point the molded rear cap is a distant memory. I wouldn't jump ship solely over the rear cap … lack of overall construction quality … yes.

I have always liked the rear cap, itís what each of us likes. I will not have the new steps that come on campers now. But you buy what you like. I saw a Cardinal at the rally that I like. Cardinal is also deleting the rear caps but they will let you option in the rear cap, Cedar Creek will not

The cheapest 5th wheels on the market don't have rear caps...CW is full of them. I wouldn't buy a Tiffin Vilano 5th wheel because it didn't have a rear cap and I really like Tiffin. Good motorhomes and good service. I think my CC Champagne looks classy and the rear cap is part of it. I wouldn't buy an RV just because it had a rear cap, but I wouldn't buy one without it. Everyone to their own tastes and desires.

Sure you can with a 3500...oops, I forgot you had a Chevy. I was thinking it was a Ford.

I was looking at the Cedar Creek Hathaway website a few days ago and saw the New 34IK floorplan there. I thought they made a mistake as it looked like a Silverback interior. Not that there is anything wrong with it but we prefer the lighter wood and darker countertops of the 2018 Hathaway. I think the back cap is "classy" but I wouldn't really care one way or the other on that. Glad we bought a 2018!

I'm with you on the new steps that store in the door frame … don't care for them. Both of us are pretty trim and we have no issue with the infamous "spring board" effect. Currently you can option these off … wonder how long till you can't?

Just saving themselves money on end caps but you won't see the savings.

I was not impressed with the Cedar Creeks on display at Goshen. Didn't like the colors inside - didn't notice the rear caps. I don't think I would pay Cedar Creek prices without a rear cap. It seems like they are moving down a little with the Cedar Creeks and positioning the Riverstone as their luxury 5th wheel. I have a 2018 Cedar Creek Champagne and there is no comparison to the 2019's. If I was buying a luxury 5th wheel today I would probably look seriously at the Cardinal or Riverstone.
