The rear aluminum constructed doors feature double cam-bars for a tight seal, while positive slam latched horse gates are comfortably padded for your horses.

Model Spotlight: Cedar Creek Luxury From the Inside Out

From the True Gelcoat Exterior to rich, durable interiors, Cedar Creek Travel and Destination trailers are your perfect choice for affordable luxury.

2016 Cedar Creek Fifth Wheel

2016 Cedar Creek Fifth Wheel

As we’ve discussed before, when you walk into a Cedar Creek Fifth Wheel, you’re walking into residential luxury on wheels, but it’s the quality appointments you don’t see that truly distinguish a Cedar Creek Fifth Wheel.

With unique construction and design, Cedar Creek has earned its place as one of the top fifth wheels in customer satisfaction as ranked by “RV Mechanics.”

Constructed in Cedar Creek’s purpose-built facility in Indiana, each unit is individually handcrafted from start to finish by a team of construction specialists over a period of three full days.

Suspension and Frame

Quality is built from the ground up starting with the suspension and axles, the soul of safety in RV construction. Cedar Creek uses the Dexter Advantage Safety and Performance Package, a manufacturer with a commitment to quality and safety since 1960. The package includes Nev-R Adjust Brakes, E-Z Flex Rubber Equalization System and E-Z Lube Bearing Lubrication System.

Sitting atop the suspension is Cedar Creek’s industry-leading Z-frame construction, which creates a flat design and more than 100 cubic-feet of storage space. Anchored into each frame is Cedar Creek’s one-of-a-kind impact resistant waterproof underbelly. The panels are inserted in the frame, anchored on wood backers, then covered with an R-38 thermal foil shield topped by two layers of residential glass wool insulation.

Finally, black, grey and freshwater tanks are installed with 12-volt large surface heating pads so campers can enjoy four-season camping in their Cedar Creek.

The Cedar Creek solid floor construction begins with a handmade aluminum superstructure of 2-inch by 3-inch aluminum substrate built on 16-inch centers. Heat ducts and waterlines are protected in the frame and insulation, safely away from exterior walls. Craftsmen bond and screw down 5/8inch tongue and groove plywood floors directly to every stud of the superstructure. The completed floor is hoisted on the steel frame and bolted in place with carriage bolts.

Sidewalls

“Just like home” is Cedar Creek’s approach to the walls of your travel trailer. While other manufacturers depend on pre-fabricated, welded aluminum walls with studding every 24-to-36 inches. Cedar Creek hand manufactures its walls with 2 inch-by-2 inch aluminum on 16-inch center – or less frames – just like residential construction.

Competitors’ walls are designed for structure, not strength as welded frames depend on lamination to create a one-piece wall. Cedar Creek’s walls are assembled with custom-made L-brackets and super adhesives to withstand road stress, heat and cold. R-7 residential-quality glass wool insulation is installed in the frame. Finally, Cedar Creek is an industry leader, using only Cedar formaldehyde-free paneling in it’s travel trailers.

Wrapping the residential quality construction of a Cedar Creek is a True High Gloss Noble Classic Gelcoat fiberclass shell. Savvy RV owners know this top-of-the-line fiberglass siding retains its color and beauty as it ages.

From the Top Down

Aluminum 5-inch truss rafters allows Cedar Creek to install an 8-inch wide race track duct system – a full-3-inches wider than most competitors – that helps keep campers in comfort no matter the season.

Next, a triple layer of roof insulation is covered by radiant thermal foil with an R-value of 38. A full-length 3/8-inch wood decking is screwed into place for a full walk-on roof. The roof is finished with a two-play rubber membrane with a built-in fire retardant and 12-year warranty.

A top-of-the-line Dometic climate-control air condition system combined with circular ducting insures uniform cooling in your Cedar Creek Fifth Wheel or Cottage Destination Trailer. The high-performance, whisper-quiet unit has a larger compressor and circulates 30 percent more air than standard units, cooling with quiet efficiency, just like a residential cooling system.

Quality Assurance

Before it comes to you, each Cedar Creek Fifth Wheel and Cottage is inspected at the factory in a variety of ways throughout the construction process.

Midway through the process, 100 pound-air pressure tests are conducted on all the gas and water lines to assure the utility lines are properly installed. Also, all slide rooms and hydraulic jacks are tested right on the production line. Sinks and showers are filled with water to test water pressure and air is pumped into the finished unit to check seals on windows and doors.

No Cedar Creek leaves the factory without a signature by the line inspector, who conducts extensive testing of the unit inside and out.

But Cedar Creek isn’t done yet. All units go through Forest River’s state-of-the art pre-delivery inspection facility for a final measure of quality assurance.

With top-notch attention to detail and materials that far exceed industry standards, it’s easy to see that Cedar Creek is the right choice for RV enthusiasts looking for luxury from the inside out.

You can experience the axle to rooftop luxury of Cedar Creek at Crossroads Trailer Sales, where brand experts will guide you through a full-line of new and used Cedar Creek Fifth Wheels and Cedar Creek Cottages.

You won’t be short on space anywhere inside of the Salem 39FDEN, which is great when you bring more people along for the ride.

It’s not all about what’s inside that matters. Instead, you also want a rig that is going to be reliable in getting you to your next destination.

Riding In Comfort

When you’re behind the wheel for hours during the day, it’s vital that you stay comfortable as the driver. Staying comfortable will not only help you stay alert while driving, but it’ll also help to avoid any soreness that you may have once you get to your destination. Anyone who has been behind the wheel of a truck that is pulling a less-than-comfortable fifth wheel knows just how brutal all those bumps in the road can be on your back. If you have a rig that is out of control, then your hauler will be equally as bouncy while on the road. Luckily, you’ll be amazed with how smooth the ride is with the Bighorn BH 3760EL BH. With a coupling system that easily connects to your truck, you’ll have full control behind the wheel in this fifth wheel. Less worries means a more relaxed ride, which will be more enjoyable thanks to minimal bumps while on the road.

Once you get to your destination, all of your passengers will enjoy the comfort that comes inside of the Heartland Bighorn. With sleeping quarters for up to 6 people, there is plenty of room with the provided bedding. Add a few more pillows to the common areas, and you may be able to sleep even more with your family. With so much comfort on wheels, everyone in your family will be happy to travel in this 2016 Heartland Bighorn BH 3760EL model.

Beautiful – Inside & Out

Great living won’t be sacrificed when you are hauling a 2016 Heartland Bighorn BH 3760EL Bighorn BH 3760EL. Inside and out, this rig is beautiful. You can tell the craftsmanship that went into making this rig no matter where you look. The outside is polished with a full body paint job that looks great on the road. Owners can rest easy knowing that paint will last, as well, since it’s protected with a special scratch resistant polish. No matter what sort of terrain your journey takes you on, you’ll be able to keep your rig looking great inside and out.

Power Under The Hood

The 2016 Heartland Bighorn BH 3760EL is also ideal due to its ability to perform with power, without draining your wallet at the pump. A light payload means that your hauler will be able to go further in-between having to fill up with more miles on the road instead.

Review: 2016 Forest River Cedar Creek 36CKTS

Looking for a new fifth wheel that is large enough to fit the whole family, but sleek enough to keep fuel costs down? If so, then you are going to love the 2016 Forest River Cedar Creek 36CKTS. Forest River continues to impress, as they’ve now introduced a new model into their line of rigs that already receive excellent reviews with the Cedar Creek.

Here is a review of the 2016 Forest River Cedar Creek 36CKTS, a rig that is perfect for travelers of all types – no matter where your destination may be.

1_862_1675813_32282904

Interior Features

We love the exterior of the Cedar Creek 36CKTS and we’ll feature that here shortly. However, taking a look inside will quickly show you just how beautiful of a unit this is.

As you make your way to the back of the rig, you’ll find an oversized sleeping space that is perfect for two people. There are additional sleeping spaces in the form of another bed, as well as a pullout that comes from the couch. In all, you can comfortably fit a family of 8, or you could all get really close with one-another if you need to fit 10.

No matter how many people you’re sleeping, you’ll be able to make sure that everyone has a fully belly throughout the day. The kitchen in the Cedar Creek 36CKTS is just another mark on the already impressive list of features. There is a large microwave and stovetop, making it easy for you to cook anything you need.

Other key features inside include an oversized television for entertainment, a bathroom with enough room for two to get ready at once, as well as a rear backup camera for safety.

The moment you step inside the Cedar Creek 36CKTS, you’ll finally understand the meaning of luxury in a fifth wheel.

Exterior

As beautiful as this 2016 Forest River model is on the inside, the outside is worthy of marveling over as well. The exterior paint is covered by a special protective layer, which means your rig will stay looking the way it did when you first got it for years to come.

We also really like how easy it is to hook up this unit to your truck. Having to mess with a hitch can oftentimes be tedious, starting the entire adventure off on the wrong foot. But with how easy it is to set the Cedar Creek into the bed of your truck, you’ll be off and on the road in no time.

Add in a sleek design that keeps the aerodynamics of your rig in mind, and you’ll also quickly appreciate the money you end up saving at the pump as well.

Price

At under $60k, this is a steal for this rig. Even if you plan on just taking out this unit only a few times a year, you’ll find the investment to be worth it. But when you quickly realize how much fun it is to travel in your own fifth wheel (especially one that is as superior as the Forest River Cedar Creek 36CKTS), you’ll likely end up taking it out so often that you’ll surely get your moneys worth over the lifetime you have this rig.

There are a lot of fifth wheels to choose from. But with all that it offers, consider the 2016 Forest River Cedar Creek 36CKTS as one of the best options to choose from.

Crossroads Trailer Sales has been the #1 5th Wheel dealer in New Jersey for the last 9 years. Our 10 acre lot features over 250 5th wheels, travel trailers, and toy haulers to choose from.
