I built one with that concept in 1975.It was pretty state of the art at the time.6v-53 detroit and full air ride suspension.Full, heated basement too. used it to pull a six place sled trailer all over the UP. Fully useable in winter. We put almost 200k on it before retiring it to a spot alongside my shop.Yes it also had a front drive axle and 10k Ramsey winch. That thing would and did pull a trailer anywhere I ask it to.

Our 2014 Cedar Creek 34' has been at the dealers more than we have camped in it .Got back from Florida and it is there now again (for 1month now) for the fireplace that almost caught fire in our yard at home .The fireplace company wanted the dealer to put the fireplace back in and not replace it with any new parts now that they have it out and working on the bench . The fan motor did not come on when I used the remote and it is so quite I turned it on and walked away , only to have my 3yr old grandson ask why the livingroom was so smokey . Wish I had the number to a factory rep that can explain why so many repairs are needed on this unit . Never had that with my 2010 Blue Ridge.

Probably wondering if you would have been better off letting it burn.

I visited a very large RV dealer. They gave me an MSRP breakdown sheet. It was printed on plain paper and not formatted like you'd expect. I went over it next to Cedar Creeks list of what was included in the option packages. The dealer was double counting items in the option packages and listing them again as as 'add on'. This helped inflate the MSRP by $6,000, I assume so they could 'negotiate' better. Frankly, I consider this lying and didn't go back. If they lie before you even ask a question then consider what they will do down the road. They also tout their service but then I read feedback on this forum on someone whose trailer had been there for months waiting for warranty work. I didn't buy from them.
