Cedar Creek 5ver?

Ready to purchase a 2013 cedar creek custom. It will be our first 5ver. Do you think it will be a good choice? I also plan to tow it with my f350 6.7 Power stroke. See any issues?

We'll probably need a little more information. Cedar Creek makes several different models, lengths etc.

I do hope the F350 is a dually. I suspect the pin weight on that is more than a SRW can handle.

Without the trailer's GVWR and the truck's GVWR, GCWR and trailer tow rating (so we can estimate the truck's manufacturer's curb weight), it's really not possible to comment on the suitability of your truck to tow this 5th wheel.

Thanks for the reply. The 5ver GVWR is 15,500 and the srw F350 gvwr is 11500 and the gcwr is 23500. Can you figure it from these numbers?

If you are pulling with a dually you make a fine choice, a quality unit you will enjoy for many years to come, the tow rating of your truck is the big question.

We have the same truck and similar weight 5er. It is a perfect match. We opted for the SRW also, as we don't pull as much as we stay. Love it.

My 6.7L F350 is a dually and is rated 13,300 GVWR and 30,0003 GCWR. I have a feeling the f350 our OP has is a SRW with 3.55 axle.

Your actual tow capacity is the GCWR minus the weight of the truck when loaded. So if your truck is maxed out with pin weight, the weight of the hitch itself, cargo, passengers etc:

23,500 - 11,500 = 12,000 tow rating...don't forget to subtract the pin weight from the weight of the RV since that weight is in the truck.

congrats - they make a great rv....

once you get it loaded and go to the cat scales I fear you will peg out the rawr...
is your truck a quad cab, what year etc... too late now, but you'll at least know if you should be concerned...
