Wanting to trade in our 5th wheel, it's a 40ft Sierra. Have been looking at new 5th Wheel. Cardinals and Cedar Creeks. Like both and am wondering what owners think?

Thank you,

As you can see from the above post, some brands have enthusiastic fans, K-Z and Grand Design being at or near the top, especially on customer support.
You will probably find the Jayco Pinnacle and North Point models close behind.
Not intending to bad mouth the Forest River brands, nor Keystone for that matter, but the ones I mentioned first do offer longer warranties and have established their fans for a reason.

We had a Cedar Creek and really liked it, was it problem free...no, but we had great factory and dealer support. We have now upgraded to a River Stone Legacy also made by Forest River, not sure what floor plans your looking at but you might want to also look at the River Stone line. Good luck on your search.

You may want to look at the 5ers built by Heartland. Specifically the Bighorn or the Elkridge.

We owned a 2007 Cedar Creek and then a 2011 Cardinal, both held up well and were well built with good workmanship. We presently own a 2018 Grand Design Solitude, very happy with this brand as well.
