Shopping for new RV

So we lost our RV in the hurricane. Time to shop for another one. Looking online we like the Cedar Creek Champagne 38ERD or 38EFK. Or the Hathaway 38DBRK. We HAD A Montana 37FL. I am investigating why I should switch to the Cedar Creek. We have a great forum on for Montana owners and I am hoping that is the case for Forest River also. I realize this is not the Cedar Creek page but I canít find a lot of current feedback on the products quality. I can see the CC offers a lot of features we like, but we are more interested in the quality of the product off the assembly line. TIA

Had some minor warranty issues with our 2020 36ck2 that was all covered by cedar creek. Love our rig and many friendly and knowledgeable people on this forum.

We just got our new Cedar Creek Hathaway a couple of months ago and have made one trip in it. We have found a couple of small issues but nothing major. Our main decision to go with the Cedar Creek was because of the construction methods used. Cedar Creek has done away with the Hathaway and Silverback lines and came out with a new line just called Cedar Creek. So you will only find those already sitting on the lots.

Cedar Creek is a good built unit, you might also want to look at the River Stone Reserve or even the whole River Stone line. Both brands are built with the same construction and both backed well by either factory. If you let us know where you live someone might be able to offer some dealer suggestions as well, but a lot folks will travel to a discount dealer for MUCH better pricing on either of these. Good luck on your search and this forum is one of the best to receive info and help on.

By seeing you lost your rv to hurricane tells me your in my neck of the woods. Sorry for your lose. We have Hathaway 38DBRK, now the 388RK and love the floor plan. The layout doesn't make you feel like your in an rv. With the large master bathroom with walk in closet and the large kitchen, you feel like your in a home. A word of caution. If you get one that has the sofa instead of the desk, you can only open one of the sofas at a time to a bed. That's the drawback but the plus is they make into a longer bed with real mattress. As others have said, we have had minor issues. Don't know how close you are to Berryland but I think I saw that they had a 38DBRK.

I just attended the Forest Rivers F.R.O.G. virtual rally, last week. The rally held a virtual tour of some of the new models that will be introduce this year. One thing I notice is the Hathaway and Silverback models, are all dealer stock now. The Champagne and just a Cedar Creek plus the Cottage models seem to be the only ones you can order as new from the factory.

Another new model that seems interesting is the Columbus River Ranch that you may want to check out.

Cedar Creek

I have a 2016 Cedar Creek Hathaway 36 CKTS (center kitchen three slides) which I have been living in full time and traveling the Country for the last 5 years. I highly recommend Cedar Creek.

Camper302 must be a Keystone owner. From what i've seen here and on other publications Keystone has been very hard to deal with concerning warranty work.

We have a 2019 36ck2 and love it, as others have said minor issues but with over 18,000 miles in 2.5 years still looks and performs great. I also bought the Cedar Creek because of the way it's built with a real aluminum stud system and glued on skins. Their gelcoat has a real good shine and easy to care for.

Their profile says they own a Coachmen product.

Not to high Jack this thread,but we camped beside a former Keystone owner. He said you could hear the camper falling apart while it was sitting in his driveway!

No Sir I am not.

Coachmen by FR and that's all I have to say about that.

We are in Gulf Shores Al. On our way to shop at Barryland in LA. I did look at the Riverstone after you mentioned it. Very nice. I don’t see a dealer “around “ here to see in person. By around, I mean within 300 miles. If you have a suggestion that would be great.

But this thread is about Cedar Creek trailers, not Coachmen. And it's in the Cedar Creek sub-forum.
From what I've seen, Cedar Creek owners seem to have very high satisfaction levels.

Looks like they are a River Stone dealer as well as a Cedar Creek dealer
