Thumbs up New FROG-CedarCreek 36CKTS

We had a 28.5 Cougar fifth wheel and really enjoyed it. But....we now have our 2nd RV, a 2013 Cedar Creek 36CKTS. Since we decided we liked traveling in our own home, we just traded up, with a lot more room. Less stress of where to put your head down at night, what to pack or not....heehee...just find a spot large enough to park.

During our road trips in the past 2 years, I think we must have stopped at every RV dealer around. We saw a 2013 Cedar Creek 36CKTS in GA that we liked better than other Rv's we've looked at, but was way out of our price range. Needless to say the internet can be very informative as I got on line and found a place called RV Nation in Hamilton OH and we think we really got a great deal from them. Saved BIG BUCKS! after talking with Ray Crain on our 2013 Cedar Creek 36CKTS, 38'. A big shout out to Ray Crain, Brian & Dave at RV Nation for their great help and expertise. It was a nice trip back from Ohio to TN. Then the snow hit the next day--WHEW! Thanks for all the help, especially the time and patience in showing us everything about our new RV, can't wait to make a first trip in it.

Congrats on your new RV. We bought a 2013 36CKTS in September at the Hershey PA RV Show. We have taken it down to Disney World from Maryland for a week, and really enjoyed the RV.

Thumbs up New Creek - Congrats

Congratulations on your new Creek & welcome to the group. There are a number of Cedar Creek forums available & each has their strong & weak points. Each offers solutions and ideas that should enhance your Creekin experiences.

We took delivery of our '13 36CKTS early last May & have really enjoyed the new features offered by the Creek. We enjoy it so much that after 12,000 miles & 12 weeks camping, we can hardly wait to have open road in front of us & happy memories in the rear view.

Enjoy your Creek and remember, don't fret the little problems, ask for help from your Creekin family on the forms. We were all in your place sometime in our past too!

Travel safe & enjoy your journeys!

Our next camper

We too have been shopping, wound up falling in love with the Cedar Creek, 36CKTS as well. When our home sells, we're sending the build sheet in! What do you tow it with? Congratulations! I'm sooo jealous!

Experience speaking... a 3/4 ton diesel will pull it but not without mods and you will be at or near max GVWR and GAWR and Max Tire Weight Rating most cases.
You will also be very susceptible to crosswinds and passing over the roaders.

So, I recommend a 1 Ton Dually Diesel.
Brand is just a personal preference.
I tow with the F350 Super cab 6.7 factory 5th wheel.
It is rear wheel drive only and made to tow
a fifth wheel or goose neck trailer on the highway. 12 MPG avg full timer loaded.
