Chaparral 390qsmb

Anyone own or have input on a 390qsmb? Looking for the good, bad, or indifferent on the unit. Any mods you've completed or want to complete.

Thanks!

I bought one in January. I considered over 15 different trailers. Every mid-bunk I could find in the price range I was wanting. Went and looked at 6. The 390 checked every box except large fresh water tank. I've been out in it 3 times and the only thing I have found wrong is the coax going to the front BR was kinked and cut. I fixed it in 5 minutes.

It is the perfect trailer for us. I had a traditional bunk house 5er for 13 years and wanted something with more living room space. This nailed it and the kitchen layout is great.

I mounted some hooks in the basement to hang power cord and water hose. Put some decorative baskets on the wall in the kitchen because DW liked them. And I put a magnetic knife holder next to the stove.

I'm a little late on this one, but I removed the outdoor kitchen in favor of a beer station.
Overall, we love our 390!

That's high on my wish list, along with keyless compartment doors! What brand did you get and where?

Me x2. I want to get one of these for our 390QSMB. I've seen them on this site before: https://www.rvlock.com/

I didn't like the non-lockable bathroom pocket door that's in our 390 so I picked up a pocket door latch that's lockable at HD.

Mine is from Bauer products it of Grand Rapids MI. www.bauerproducts.com
Got it at the COA rally, they were selling them for $100. Easy install, and simple to use.

AP Products makes a version too for about $150. It is capacitive so you touch it, no buttons to physically push. Was looking at them a couple days but figured since this weekend iso my last trip, why bother spending the money this year.
