2013 Cedar Creek CRF36B4 . This is bay far the largest trailer I've hauled yet. It was also the EASIEST towing trailer yet. I was a little concerned about the weight but this unit towed smoother than the 30ish foot 9000lb units. Some likes of mine on this were the LT rated tires and the air ride hitch (can't recall the name right now). I am sure these two features contributed to its good road manners. It is equipped with the hydraulic landing / levelling gear which works pretty good. Towing mileage was between 10.5-12 during the trip.
Dry Hitch Weight 2,244 lbs. (1,018 kg)
Unloaded Vehicle Weight 13,134 lbs. (5,957 kg)
GVWR 16,244 lbs. (7,368 kg)
Cargo Carrying Capacity 3,114 lbs. (1,412 kg)
Exterior Length 41' 0" (12.5 m)
Exterior Height 12' 11" (3.9 m)
Exterior Width 96" (2.4 m)

Wouldn't mind seeing a floor plan diagram for that beast. Just curious. Bet it's nicer than a lot of folks' stick houses.

Try this link. It is a 36B4 if the link does not work.

Wow! You should get some kind of certificate after hauling that thing -41' and a ton+ of hitch weight. I'm gonna tell the dealer I want one, but I plan on towing with my F-150.

lol thanks. Dealer would likely tell you your F150 would do it no problem. I measured the set up today just for fun and truck and trailer and just about 67 ft long.

That must have looked like a quarter mile in the mirrors.

You are really getting some valuable experience. If you can get a 36B4 and yourself safely to destination, there isn't much more that would give you a challenge. Keep up the good work.

I only had to tow it for approx. 1650 miles. My hats off to the people on here that haul the big Pinnacles and the like on a regular basis.

Thanks, greenenvy1, for the floor plan link. That's more than awesome. Like putting a good sized stick house on the road. Really nice, but way too big for me. Kind of gives new meaning to the term "Camping", doesn't it ?
