RE: favorite feature

I like the fact that it's been paid for several years now! LOL....seriously, we like the openness if the floor plan, so we have room to play with the dog...and the fact that almost every seat allows us to look at the TV straight on.

RE: Very frustrating situation, going to blow some steam!

I totally second what MPI_Mallard said. We also know a lot of CC owners that can't say enough great things about CC customer service. The little we have needed them, they have been top notch. Several of our fellow CCRVOC members are on their 2nd, 3rd or 4th CC. I'm sorry you are having such bad luck. Our 2009 Silverback G2 has been excellent for us. For all you've invested, you should find a good local welding shop and fix it locally. I agree, with MPI - are you sure you're dealing with the CC customer service dept.? Good Luck.

Mine come off at the end of the season, which is early Nov. Go back on for that first trip of the new season.

RE: Nuts & Bolts

To the OP - You have seen a lot of great replies to the great questions you wanted opinions on.....what I haven't seen, and you haven't stated - is money no object? What is your budget, which may dictate a lot of your choices. Did I miss your mention of the budget?

RE: I am wanting a little persuasion

Keep that Citation and over the next 3 years be disciplined, and start a savings account for the next unit. Save what you can each month and then after 3 years you will have something - and the pain of paying may not be so bad. Good Luck

RE: do you leave your awnings out?

WE compromise, at night, I will leave about 18" out - just enough to cover the stairs....now, I am a very light sleeper, so if I hear wind, I bring it in....and I have a few times. In the day, when we go away, sometimes it comes in depending how far away and how long we'll be gone, sometimes I'll bring it in about 2/3s.... No problems yet.

RE: Spare tire

As previously stated - I'll just plug my pancake genny into my generator and inflate spare if I have too....I hope I never need to use it....actually, It's a "brand new" - 6 yr old China Bomb.....I'd better get another XPS RIB.

RE: Replacing carpet with Tile?

It's too early to head to FLA.....be sure to get us those pics next year.

RE: People never cease to surprise me

I too am impressed that management kicked them out. Many c/gs just look at the money and won't enforce their own rules. Generally, its a joke. There are all kinds out there!

RE: no maintance battery

I am a CC owner as well - How do you not have a converter? I can't imagine a trailer without one....even hooked to shore power you would constantly draining your battery. The convert is supposed to convert the AC to DC.

RE: Recommendations Please on new rig

Agree that you should look at the Excel line - something I will look into when I upgrade some day.... They are not cheap.

RE: new used Cameo

They are nice units - I also echo the comment about G rated tires. Friends of ours with a Cameo were always blowing their E rated tires...of course, it could have been the quality of those tires. Good Luck & enjoy it.

RE: Wildcat on Ram 3500 SRW

It does look like airbags will help level you out. If you go that route, be sure to get the compressor as well...so that you can adjust on the fly.

RE: Joining the 5th wheel world...

I agree with Veebyes comment 100%. You already bought it....you could have asked for opinions before buying it. They are well made....enjoy!

RE: Diesel / Gas prices by you?

Hate to hi-jack, but this is related to diesel fuel....can you folks tell me what you are seeing as far as what percent of your fuel is Bio-diesel? I'm just curious what the percent of the blend is BD ranges. Our diesel is $3.80 - $3.90 in Southern MD

RE: Recommended RV CG between Buffalo NY & Coast (Ocean City)

Gary, Try Twin Grove c/g in Pine Grove, PA. It is near Harrisburg and will be close to half way. My wife and I are from the WNY area (south of Buffalo). We travel between southern MD and WNY frequently. Know the route very well. We have stayed at this c/g a few years ago...and really enjoyed it. Looks like it might be improved. Check it out. good luck, Mike

RE: Just an Idea!

In our case we opted for a MAXXFAN that works both ways. Our 5ver is wired and framed for the second a/c. In our case it would not have been too hard to mount the box to the frame, and then attach the ceiling fan to the box, just like the 6 ceiling fans in my house are attached to the ceiling J-box.

RE: rear axle weight

OP - I was starting to approach my GRAWR (about 200 under)and was over my ruck's GVWR. I went out and upgraded to wider tires going from 3042 to 3450lbs per LT tire. These wider tires required me to get wider wheels - which were also higher rated than the OEMs.....This is a lot cheaper than buying a new truck....it may not be ideal, but I feel a lot better - and yes, with those wider tires I can feel the difference. I also try to load heavy items to the back of the trailer - if possible. One side effect - my truck's speed odometer now is exactly in sync with my GPS....it was always off my 3MPH..... Good Luck.

RE: Rv trim

Scott, When my new Cedar Creek was missing a 2" piece of external trim, I called CC and they sent me a piece as big as I wanted...which was 6", at no charge. I suggest you call your manufacturer as ask the same as I did.
