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 ?

I don't know who is buying these things. When I delivered this am another identical one pulled in beside me. Keep in mind these were delivered to a tiny, not even open yet dealership in a small town of Stewiacke, Nova Scotia. These are 70k plus units. I honestly don't know how people afford these lol

They must be selling their homes and just about anything else they own, other than an expensive TV.

Nice big rear living area in this model. 2013 jayco 328 rlts. The aero front design does seem to deliver better mpgs. I got between 1-2 mpg better with this design over the other types I've hauled.

Any guesses where this pic is taken??

Nice looking rig.
On top of the $70,000 for the TT you have another $45,000 for TV
That's a lot of greenbacks lol

Thanks for the pictures. I always enjoy your posts.

Doug

lol this site and my two youngest boys are the only ones that enjoy the pics!!!
$45k for truck? no way. I have less than half that (and paid cash) in this one and that was already equipped with tank, hitches, etc. I see guys rolling in almost new trucks every day doing this and I shake my head. Knowing what I know now I could have a very nice TV set up for around 15-20k with a legal sleeper.

How does the 328 pull? That is the model I am considering buying.

Really enjoy your updates. I check this thread often.

328 pulls easily with the one ton. Guessing it is "half ton towable" I like the floor plan.
