Wecome Ray and Diane to the forum! Check back often--there is always something new to learn here. If you have questions, first use the search box at the top. Most issues already have been raised and answered. Feel free to post a question. Usually there are several people that will try to give you an answer. We always like to see pictures of your TT and your tow vehicle (TV). Again welcome to the world of RVing!

New to RV-ing, too!

Hi, we are also new to the world of RV-ing; so new, in fact, that we are still shopping for our first coach. We think we have settled on a Cedar Creek 38FL (love the floorplan), but would love to hear pros and cons from, pros! Any advice from those of you who have "been there, done that"? We live in Florida, will retire in the next year, and are looking to beat the heat in the hot summer months.

Also, those of you who already own this particular model fifth wheel, what is your recommendation (weight/size) for a tow vehicle?

These two newbies will certainly appreciate your input....

David and Cathy, it's a good idea to start your own thread, when it differs from the OP's thread.
if you want opinions on the Cedar Creek, there's a Cedar Creek sub-forum, where you can read lots of opinions from CC owners.
look in the TT/5th Wheel section.
