Here is our new to us 2008 Cedar Creek 362 BSA.  We just upgraded from a 27' travel trailer and are looking foward to all the extra room.  We will be making our first trip in it next weekend to Clabough's Campground in Pigeon Forge.

Ugh- stupid computer!

It is not on it's side, and the photo was taken upright. I will get a better shot on our maiden voyage. :D

Ha ha ha! Great tires indeed! 

Thanks Carson. Before be bought the RV I used to actually spend time on the computer and would have noticed my wall-crawling RV. :)  Now I post and run into the RV to finish projects before she goes into storage again.

Just thought I'd post a pic of our first RV other than the VW campers we had. It is a 1983 35 ft Kountry Aire 5th Wheel that we had custom built.
We towed it with a Ford E350 Econoline Centurion RV Cutaway. The pic I posted is not the one we owned but it shows what it looked like.
In the pic of the 5th Wheel you can see the first TV satellite dish we bought from Camping World. You also see the VW bus we had that Wend drove following me,
The pic is in Florida after we left Gulf Islands NS and were headed to Everglades NP for my winter job. I think we are parked at Beverly Beach CG south of St Augustine

Here are a couple of pictures of my recovered rig.  I am the fellow that posted a reward for finding it after it was stolen with everything in it.  Because of the efforts of a great detective on the fraud department of the Arizona DMV, Jeff Fauffenbach, a fellow helicopter pilot, all the vehicles were recovered.  The contents from 30 years on the road are gone, but he got the vehicles back.

Glad to hear you got your rig back.  Was it in good condition when it was returned to you?

Just out of curiosity, what engine are you running and how happy are you with the way it hauls your stacker trailer?  How much does the stacker weigh when loaded?  What is the length of the trailer, looks like either a 24' or a 26'?

Thanks Mike,  I am glad I got them back also.  The vehicles were all in good shape,  All the contents were gone.  It is amazing how much "stuff" you collect during 30 years of traveling on the road.  Every time I need something I think, "I got one of those...oops now I do not".  The list amounted to over $30,000 of items in the coach and stacker.  Another sad commentory on the recovery is that every person that was involved in this episode had to take thier pound of flesh.  As each dealer, (it was all dealers that bought the vehicles and had to return them), removed anything of value that they could.  I cannot differentiate between who took what, but it is clear that all took some.  As an example the six new Michilin tires and the two new spares on the stacker were gone.  They acutally swapped the tires on the trailer.  Batteries were taken, brake controller, virtually everything that could be removed was.  Here are a few interesting pictures of the interior of the stacker at the time it was taken.  The empty pictures are from when I got it, but that is also what it looks like when I recovered it.

The engine in the Country Coach Inspire is a Cummins 350.  It is OK but I do slow down on hills.  I am ok for now as I am not in a great hurry as long as it downshifts and pulls the hills.  I had no trouble on the Devore pass a few weeks ago.  My Company has agreed to get me either a new Essex or Magna as soon as they can.  Country Coach is now making a small number of coaches again.

The weight of the stacker is about 9,000 pounds empty and has a GVAR of 18,000 pounds.

The box is 28 feet and the overall length is 32 feet.

Yes that makes me 72 feet overall but I have never been stopped or had any trouble with the length.

Another sad commentory on the recovery is that every person that was involved in this episode had to take thier pound of flesh.  As each dealer, (it was all dealers that bought the vehicles and had to return them), removed anything of value that they could. 

Would the tags not have shown up that the vehicles were stolen?  Does this mean that if we were buying a used coach at a dealers it could actually be a stolen vehicle and/or RV?  Does it also mean the innocent buyer would lose the item and the money exchanged?

The tags were removed, However when the new owners registered the vehicle the VIN number did alert the fraud investigator that the stolen vehicles were being transferred.  Three of the four vehicles were discovered before they were resold by the dealers.  The Stacker was auctioned off to a second dealer before it was recovered.  I do suppose that any of these could have been sold to a unsuspecting purchaser by any of the four dealers that bought them.  No one will give me any details of the sale other than I do know that my signature was forged on the titles that were in the coach.  All the titles were clear so there was no lein holder to complicate the transactions.  I really am amazed that four different dealers did not question the sales.  I also have no idea what the different dealers paid for the vehicles.  I think it must have been low enough for them to not question too closely the sales.  Very frustrating time, but I did eventually recover all the vehicles minus all the contents.  It is easier to steal a motorhome than it is to sell it and I think that posting the reward and description on this forum may have forced them to get rid of them.

Don't have many inside pic's, except during construction.
I found two of the queen size bed/table that are under the 500KB size, but the flooring is not in yet on the date we took the pictures.

We have taken this camper all over the State (Michigan), and for just us two, it have been wonderful.

Most all of my pictures are 1.9MB or larger, this site only allows 500KB, and I don't know how to make a picture smaller for this site to accept. Any ideas would helpful as I would like to post more pictures.
(Edit) I googled on how to downsize an image, and did one of the Cupboards / Bath-Shower area.
