I've had my 26dbh for a few weeks and love it. It isn't the most high end unit, but in my opinion, it's the best in that price range.

I had only a few minor issues off the lot, but they were mostly due to my OCD.

Enjoy your purchase and make your own opinions, don't let others sway you.

Happy camping.

Bought a 23 DBH six weeks ago. Have had a couple learning experiences along the way. Nothing major. One broken wire in the ceiling for furnace, which the dealer promptly took care of. We looked at lots of TTs, kept going back to this one. So happy with our TT. have used it 5 of the last 6 weekends. Plan on using it until we can not use it anymore before winter sets in.

Happy Camping!

I've become a handy man by owning our 2 trailers (one a tag along and now a 5th wheel)
the 5th wheel has a head space which has a shelf over top. EVERY night DW has to remind me to watch my head when i get into bed.
However if i have to get up in the middle of the night to use the WR - she isnt very considerate in her warnings and I crack my forehead...

They didnt call us meat heads in the army for nothing.

we take the good with the bad and the ugly

Love our Cedar Creek. Even when it's parked in my RV building, I go out sometimes and watch a little tv or have a cold beverage. Peaceful. And the Lazy boys are comfortable too. :-)

Got a '14 Grey Wolf 28BH; came from an '06 Coleman pop-up.

We love our trailer - just about 30 nights out this year; not counting the occasional night "camping" in the driveway, to keep the little one happy.

As has been mentioned - stuff happens - we had a problem with our door at delivery, and a piece of siding started to separate a little, after we'd had it for a few weeks. Both minor; and the dealer fixed it in a day or two. Don't sweat the little stuff, you'll go crazy.

We love ours - we get out as much as we can!

I have nothing but positive things to say about our choice to travel with our two kids when we can with an RV. Its a different experience. We have spent nights with views people spend 100x's the cost. We have our own essentially everything at our disposal. I love my own bed as do our kids. Most all of our family photos have been taken while somewhere that our RV has taken us. You didn't buy a hunk of junk, but an investment in your family. There is nothing in life that is not worth a little extra don't dig into the posts regarding your specific brand. For every 10 negative comments about said RV's here there are 100 who are quiet as they are 100% happy. if you choose to read all the negative, use the negative info to your advantage by inspecting your new unit at the dealer for all these items. Just my .02

Enjoy it most of all. Its a blast.

Got our new fifth wheel 2 months ago, and have been on 2 trip so far, with another just around the corner, another around thanksgiving, and another around xmas/new-year planned, and already planning an 8000 mile road-trip for next summer.

Only one minor little issue so far, nothing urgent.

Have loved spending time in the great outdoors, with DW and the kids (two teens, one at college, and they still choose to spend family time with us "camping").

Just being able to wake up from a comfortable bed, in a real bedroom (esp. compared to our old popup), and enjoy some "home comforts", yet be able to step outside into the beautiful surroundings in our state parks or other campgrounds, and cook/eat breakfast outside, and soak up the sights and sounds around us, is priceless.

Can't wait for our next short trip, and especially looking forward to our longer trips after that, and we're getting impatient trying to plan out our epic road trip across the country

We have had a Surveyor 263 (bumper pull) since the fall of 2008. It is still a great trailer. it tows great, and is very functional. As with most trailers, we have had a few minor problems, some fixed under warranty, and the rest fixed by me or the local trailer shop (broken brake assembly flange).

Many people get on the forums for complaints, but very few get on the forums for praise.
