Chaparral 390 QSMB

I am looking at the 390 QSMB on line. One dealer lists the length as 40' long, another lists it as 42'. The manufacture website doesn't have this unit listed at all. I know it's new(2015), and probably hasn't been added to the website yet. Does anyone know how long it is(might not fit in my carport).

Did you get it? I think it has a great floor plan. It was just a bit longer than we had thought of getting and more $$. Would love to see how somebody's using one!

We bought one earlier this month. OMG it is big. So far we love it but we are brand new to having a travel trailer so its been a huge learning curve. We have teenage boys so the extra room is why we went with it.

The Bald Guy...be sure to post pics and comments along your journey. We have the 360 IBL which is quite similar, just smaller than the 390. Taking out bunkroom to make it my crafting room. Would like to know what mods you do and what issues you encounter, if any!

Doug- sabre, sandpiper and Salem hemisphere all have the midship bunk too. I love these floor plans also but worry about the 42' length. The shorter chaparral is a bit narrow on shoulder room in the hallway for our preference. The sandpiper version is my favorite but getting a bit heavy for my truck and my current 15k hitch.

The 42' length is already where I'm at, so that isn't a worry. My issues are likely my own with the way we travel with 3-4 adults and 2 kids. I do love these midship bunks, though. Just wish I could custom design something and not end up in the poorhouse afterwards!

Check out the Brookstone 395. It has the queen bed up front, a queen bed loft, the bunk room with bunk and hide a bed sofa, and the sofa in the rear makes into a queen bed.
