Smile Looking at 2019 36CKS, anyone have any experience with this model?

My husband and I are looking at getting out of our 42' MH and moving into a 36CK2. Am wondering if there is anyone out here that could give me their reviews on this model. Thank you

I've got a 2013. Probably one of the best floor plans out there. Been a good rig. Not sure how the new ones compare.

I have a 2016 36CKTS. We looked at lots of trailers for 4 years and kept going back to this one. If you can find an early 2019 or a leftover 2018 model with the barrel ceiling and molded rear cap I would jump on it. Much nicer than the newest model in my opinion. Very happy with ours as well as how we have been treated by Cedar Creek.

We just picked up our 2019 1/2 36 CK2 last week. Wow, you're gonna be impressed when you see it. Get the pebble stone interior and gas electric H2O heater. Suggest a dually tow vehicle but a lot of folks tow without it. What are your specific questions about the Hathaway?

We've got a 2018 Cedar Creek 36CK2 Hathaway Edition. It's an awesome trailer and floorplan for a couple, but not so much for more than that as the couch is the only other sleeping area. We love having the pantry separate the entertainment station from the kitchen. Many floor plans have the tv right up next to the stove because there's no pantry. We towed ours with a 2014 F350 SRW CC Powerstroke and had no issues with it. We did a 6000 mile trip up through Glacier, Rushmore, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and the truck did fine.

Enjoy whatever you get.

I always like the 36CK2 Hathaway but since Cedar Creek decided to delete the rear cap on the Hathaway should we ever decide to trade it will probably be a Cardinal 3350. DW and I really like the rear cap. Cedar Creek factory has been very good to us.

We are upgrading to a longer trailer and were wondering how you manage getting in and out of gas stations. Any advice would be appreciated

Plan ahead, or hit a truck stop. Also, I have over 40 gallons in the stock tank, so I always makes sure it's full before hooking up. I'm a total of 44 feet long with the Swivel Wheel, and it's really not an issue.

Got our 2019 on May 1st of this year. Had a 2015 36CKTS until February of this year. Pretty much the same layout. The 2019 has a larger bathroom with a double vanity which meant the loss of the dirty laundry storage area
Wife loves the kitchen pantry, lots of storage. We got the optional heat pump and electric heater in the bedroom. Highly recommend these options. We opted to not get the tankless water heater (no cost) after hearing all the negative reviews on this and other forums.
Bathroom and refrigerator can be accessed without moving the slides out. Big plus. We went with the king size bed, our last one had the queen bed. If you leave the bedroom door open when you bring the slide in you will be able to access the bed without moving the slide out. Good for WalMart camping
Great camper. I highly recommend it.

I have a auxiliary one hundred gallon tank, I never have been in a gas station or truckstop hooked to my camper. Works for us

We have a 2017 36CKTS Hathaway Edition. Full timers. Have taken it all around the ISA. Just got back from a trip beginning near Brownsville, TX to Anchorage, AK. Donít boondock much but have washer & dryer & 5500 W Generator. One thing to ask CC before purchasing. What will they do if the front cap fades. That is a known problem. We love our 5th Wheel. Have not seen a better unit.

I agree. I have the 2016 36CKTS. Pull with RAM 3500 dually. The unit weighs 8 tons. RAM SRW capacity is 17,000 lbs. dually 26,000.

Bought it 3 years ago and living in it full time. Been in temperatures of 7 degrees above 0. Have pulled it 33,000 miles, including 7,000 mile Alaska trip. No major problems. I love it.

we have a 2019 36ck2 that we picked up in March, we have about 8-9,000 miles on it now. Love it , we ordered options: 200 watt solar panel and controller, duel pain windows, awing for the living room slide, toppers for all the slides, cadet elect heater in the bedroom and the 12 gal elect/gas W/H. we talked about the heat pump but did't get it , just got home ( sw mi.) from FL and used the fire place and bedroom heater a lot , worked great. ( Ya I know we were going the wrong way). I all so got 2 31 size 12 v batteries and with the solar have not had any problems with the res frig. Ours does have the rear cap, must have been one of the last. We have a 2018 GMC 2500hd duramax and I put airbags on it, even with the bags at only 5lb the truck only squat about 2-3 inches, with the bags at 55-60 lb all looks level and pulls great even in 25mph cross winds. We all so got the Andersen ultama hitch which I really like. Good luck with your choices.

Caps on the new models that are white with the dark colored stripe up the center do not fade. they are now painted.

It does look like Cedar Creek would let you option in the rear caps

There is no rear cap option on the customer purchase order form starting with the 2019.5 models.

The interior however, does make up for the deleted rear cap IMHO, plus nicer appliances and accent LED lighting is appreciated.

We really enjoy our Cedar Creek but no rear cap is a deal breaker for us

Initially it was deal breaker for me also, but once she saw the kitchen in the 36CK2...happy wife happy life is all I can say. She gave me full authority on the outside, so independent axle slipper springs and shocks upgrade should keep me entertained right thru the winter.
