Cedar Creek launches King Tailgater install option

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — King announced that Cedar Creek will now offer its King Tailgater with two Dish receivers as an install option on future models.

The Forest River-owned fifth-wheel brand introduced the new King Tailgater option to dealers this week, with one receiver in the living room and one unit in the master bedroom – along with a modulator to carry a strong, clear signal outside – of each Cedar Creek product. The new Tailgater option will feature a streamlined turnkey system.

“At King, our goal is always to provide our OEM partners and their customers an unparalleled combination of advanced technology and incredibly simple service,” explained Jeremy Buckmeier, national RV OEM sales manager. “The Tailgater is a perfect example of that balance – it’s small, simple and powerful, offering Cedar Creek owners no better way to take Dish programming on the road with them.”

Designed and manufactured exclusively for Dish, the Tailgater offers dual output for multiple TV viewing, a portable or permanent roof mount with integrated mounting feed, fully automatic acquisition and switching, and a receiver requiring no separate remote or power source. In addition, the Tailgater features a Dish-specific set-up screen and a pay-as-you-go program for the mobile-specific market.

“As Forest River Cedar Creek adapts to consumer requests for larger and additional TVs in our units, we understand how important this feature is to our customers,” explained Craig Clair, Cedar Creek general manager. “This is why we want to lead our market and partner with King and Dish to provide the most cost-effective and user-friendly satellite TV option on the market.”
