OK - I'm Here!

No point in signing up to a new forum if you don't make some noise. As my profile indicates I am a semi-retired, self employed contractor that works part-time. Unfortunately, my much-better half still works which limits our travel time to a couple of longer trips/year plus weekend and grandkid visits.

Our Rig is a 2001 Cedar Creek 30' RL which I cannot say enough good about. We purchased it from 54 Auto and RV near Augusta, Kansas; and Dave and his team have been another high-point in our RV'ing experience (2nd trailer purchased from them) We bought the trailer used three years ago and have pulled it about 15,000 miles. The trailer has been nearly perfect with the only real repair being replacement of a slide out-relay. During the past year we have replaced a couple of the plastic roof-vents but that is expected. We have also done a little customizing. The rig is comfortable and easy to pull. I plan to spend 2 to 4 weeks in the trailer this fall while helping my son finish his house in southwest Mo and have no problems with living in it that long.

The truck that logged nearly all of the trailer's pulling miles was a 2002 Chevy 2500HD 8.1L. We recently replaced that truck with a 2006 Duramax due to oil consumption concerns. The Duramax is new and towing experience is limited to about 40-50 miles.

I would be curious about others Cedar Creek experience. Trailer Life and others provide spotty input but it is good to see a dedicated site.

Ron, I see you bought your CC from 54 RV in Augusta. We also bought our CC from there. They are super people to deal with. We too are very pleased with our CC. We spend Jan & Feb in Texas in it and have no problems living it for that length of time. Also take summer trips and attend at least one Cedar Creek rally each year. What a great group of people to go with a great trailer.

Hi Ron,

We noticed you're from Kansas too! We have a 30 CKTS Cedar Creek Fifth Wheel. We're very happy with it, just haven't gotten out much this year! We do go to Branson quite often and we also try to make it to as many Rally's as we can with our CC Club.

Frank & Linda
