Wow, that is a killer floorplan! We love to take friends with us on trips to go mountain biking and that floorplan would be AWESOME!

I know isn't it. That's why I have no problem getting rid of my 14 lacrosse even though it's so new I've never seen anything like it before

My wife and I swore this last spring when we got our 2015 320BHDS that it would last us for at least 5 years.... That may of just changed. We will be looking for this at the next show we go to. Please update us when you take delivery of it, how things go.

I just saw this video and I think it's a wowser for a family. We have the Chaparral 360IBL and love it. We took out the bunks and made the bunkroom into a craftroom and it fits our needs like no other floorplan we saw (it's exactly like the mid bunk room on this new 371). But if I had kids or grankids living with us, it would be the 371mbrb for sure. I prefer a table and chairs over the booth dinette but that's a small thing that could be changed easily.

Wow. Do not show my wife that. We have the 2016 Chaparral 29 bhs and supposedly we are going to keep it for 15 years...I see a lot that is familiar in the layout. We have spent almost 30 days in it since we got it 8 months ago with 3 kids and live it. I don't see how you wouldn't be happy with that model!

We also would much rather have a table and chairs then the dinette but I think we will stick with it for a little and add it later depending on the cost of changing it out. It's perfect for the kids one boy and girl they like there separate space from each other this will be perfect for friends to that way there not bothering each other.
Have you all been happy with the 29 and the 360 ibl I also have a 3500 dodge 11 how does it tow it

Absolutely love it. Our kids are 9, 6, and 4 so when we go out its a busy trailer and we have put every component to the test, have had nothing of note wrong with it at all. We pull with a Chevy 2500 and it has done fine in some very steep spots in the Sierra Nevada as well as on the coast.

We really like the 360. Everybody who comes in it says they really like the whole floorplan and the general look of the 5er. We have so far been problem free but at our last campout, DH started having problems with getting the tank connections completely closed. Thank goodness for those little gate things! He plans to work on it as soon as the weather warms up. We may have a kink in the cords that pull them closed or have the round piece drilled from the floor to the tanks inside and blocking the ability to close (have read that happens a lot, to different brands and different models). We've been to 9 camp grounds in Texas and Oklahoma so far and I'm guessing close to 50 days. We did almost immediately replace the tires and everything else we've done have just been mods for our lifestyle.

We were so lucky to have found the Ram 3500 at a great price (brand new 2014 but because we bought it in May of 2015 we got a great deal). It has all the bells and whistles we need-tire monitoring system, tow package, but not leather seats or sunroof or any of the luxury options. It is a great all around truck and hauls the 360 great. And better than that, it STOPS the 360. On our last trip (got back Friday), we were driving along a major highway and saw the signs that said "road construction ahead". We were in the right lane of two lanes so DH slowed down a bit. Just as we crested a hill, there was the construction on the downhill side--left lane totally shut down exactly at the point where there was a very, very short merge lane into our right lane. Traffic was at a dead stop at that point. I held my breath but he got the truck and 5er stopped in plenty of time but, for me, it was a bit scary. But it handled well as did the 360.

If you decide to get it, please post your observations. I would say "And Have Fun" but think that's a given with this beauty!
