We are on our second Cedar Creek and we have friends in the Cedar Creek RV Owners Club who are now on their 4th Creek. Yes, there are problems with Cedar Creeks just like there are problems with any other RV (or boat, or house, or car, etc) but our experience has been that Cedar Creek will stand behind their product and work to correct any problem. A good example is the FROG rally in Goshen in August - Cedar Creek (and all Forest River products) techs spent several days repairing problems with units attending the rally many of which were far out of warranty or were not the fault of the company.

We have also found that some dealers are quite willing to do warranty work or other repairs while other dealers will drag their feet or perform shoddy workmanship.

Sweetlou, we just took our new 38rd out this weekend for its shake down which we have had for 45 days and was the first time. We have owned 6 RV's before this and we found nothing wrong. We have been very happy so far but then again this was the first trip and only 45 days old. I am very impressed with the quality so far. I agree as long as you are willing to be a handy man then you should be good to go. Personally I think this is the best coach on the market after performing extensive research and on site visits of mid to high end range coaches.

Thanks ttanous this is such a big decision, I have a 2007 sunnybrook titan fifth wheel now and its been great no problems.I think I am doing to much research I am getting a headache there has been so much negative comments about forest river and new trailers in general but you really like the quality of the trailer? I heard the jenson radio is hard to work it is confusing thanks for all your comments keep me posted about the 38rd. Is there a option you did not get that you wished you got? how do you like the leveling system? thanks again

Sweetlou the only options I wish we would have purchased but will purchase this year. The trail air kingpin and toppers for the slide outs. I am always mixed on toppers some love them and some hate them. I have not had any issues learning the new Jensen system but then again I'm a Technical person part of my job. I found the manual very helpful so have not had any issues yet. We struggled between the FB2 and the 38rd. If want to discuss our purchasing experience you can private message me.

We just picked up our 36CKTS this week. Thus far I am pleased with the quality. There will always be little things wrong but most are simple easy to fix items. I researched for almost a year before ordering the Cedar Creek and decided that Cedar Creeks overall build quality is superior to most of the others. Good luck on your search.

We are on our first Creek after a long but not so stellar relationship with a Montana. After about 45K miles on the Creek I think I can say it's broke in now, with only a couple of minor issues. I will say that the factory crew goes the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of and are happy with their efforts. George Oliver's crew certainly go the extra mile for you the customer. My problem is Topeka IN is a loooong way from home & if the production guys were better with quality this crew wouldn't have so much to do.

I still get a little peeved when I, the customer buying the product, find that FR will not permit up fitting for the chassis, but that I have to address those things in the aftermarket.

Even with the ideological differences FR CC is hard to beat.

Travel safe, see you down the road aways or maybe you can join us at a FROG event in the future! Anyhow, enjoy your journeys!
