Cardinal and its sister Cedar Creek are very well built trailers. Nothing will be as warm as a S&B home, but you will get your monies worth with them. Personally I like Cedar Creek better, but if a Card fits your budget and you are comfortable with the floor plan, enjoy!
My 10 year old CV has never been back for a warranty repair. This year I have replaced one tank dump valve, one water heater element, thermostat, and the tank anode rod. Not bad for 10 years.
