Why redwood?

My first 5th wheel so as you could imagine I have more question than this forum wants to answer Iím sure. Started out looking at cedar creek and liked what I found new. Now Iím thinking to go used and maybe upgrade. I like what Iíve seen on redwood as far as the fit and finish. I like the bigger holding tanks and full body paint. Can anybody that have possibly went from cedar creek to redwood give me some reason why they did. Iím even considering going with a used Mobil suite. I think the more I look around the more I see that quality is very important.
Thanks for anything you can provide

It's pretty much acknowledged by most that the best of the bunch for Redwood quality build was the earlier ones 12-14 model years. You might want to take a look on here as a few members have theirs rigs for sale. Would be willing to bet that any one of them would be well maintained and have upgrades. I'm sure some of them will respond on here.

I have had no issues with mine other than one window latch that was broken during transport and a loose panel on the refrigerator that I tightened myself.

When I was shopping, I looked at everything on the market. Nothing could compare to the Redwood for the fit and finish you mention or overall value for the $. I did look at Mobil Suites but they were more money (new) and very heavy. I would have had to buy a new truck at the same time and that was not going to happen.

Love my choice!!

I also was looking hard at the Cedar Creeks when in the market... I actually had put a price on one in VA, but the dealer would not move on their cost, hindsite I am thrilled he wouldnít move..

I could not be happier with my Redwood, no comparison between the 2 in my eyes. If you buy used, and early year Redwood, watch the front and rear caps, as they were color infused gelcoat and had/have fade issues just like all other mfgs...

Donít get me wrong, Cedar Creeks are a nice unit they just donít measure up to the RW in my book...

Joe - the caps were only color gel coat on the non-full paint

Any idea on the floor plan you are looking for? We might be able to point you in the right direction with a few for sale.

Here's mine! Lifestyle has changed & looking to downsize. It has been maintained & has several upgrades.
Send me pm if you have questions.

To answer why RW? For us it was fit/finish, value for price, floor plan, & available options.
Would I buy another RW? Yep! In a NY second.
We also looked at Cedar Creek & had one a few years back, but as Joe said they wouldn't budge on price. Mobil Suites were toooo heavy & tooooooo much money & the fit /finish wasn't a dimes worth better than the RW.

We looked at a number of 5th Wheels when shopping, when we went in a Redwood, it just felt like home to us.

The right construction was there (not perfect, but better than others we looked at) and the fit and finish was good and again the most important thing, it felt like home.
