Cedar Creek or Jayco Pinnacle?

We're looking to replace our fiver soon. Any opinions as to what is the better product? Cedar Creek of Jayco Pinnacle? Both are very attractive and loaded with options. We presently have a Newmar Kountry Star and would like something close to the quality.

Jayco is a great product. But I find that they tend to load the pin to save on axle capacity. It puts most of them in dually capacity.
The Cedar Creek have lighter pin load and to me are also light on axle capacity.
For me any large unit should be setup with 7000lbs axles and load range G tires with 12 in frames. Just my opinion, bells and whisle is next.

At the Chicago RV show this last Feb.2015 we looked at both JAYCO Pinnacle and the Cedar Creek units. Both had 7,000 LB axles G-rated tires and the Dexter ez-lube with the wet bolts and bushing on them. They are almost equal in amenities and features. A little less glitz on the Cedar Creek units and I do not like the stone fireplace surrounds on the Pinnacle units.

We went with the CC34RL simply because this had the floor plan and size we were looking for.

IMHO you will be hard pressed to beat CC customer service. My 2005 Creek has never been in the shop for factory warrenty work. Have things failed for various reasons? Yes, but they have all either been my fault or age related. I can still call them and have the parts at my house within a week.

I owned an 08 Jayco Designer which was basically the predecessor to the Pinnacle. Never had a problem. It was an excellent fiver in every way. We moved to a motorhome, but I still sometimes miss the Jayco.
Inerestingly, my last choices when I bought were between a Cedar Creek and the Jayco. After a lot of comparisons, the Jayco won out because at the time, it had a double boxed frame as opposed to I beam frames and several things that I felt were better quality.
