Chaparral has been a good rig for us. We have a 2018 360IBL. We like the layout, the thermal performance and the quality/value.

The first year we got in 82 nights and 8k miles.

Good luck and enjoy in good health!

Welcome and hello from California. We got our first 5th wheel 5 years ago and have a similar set up as yours. Absolutely the way to go, IMHO. Enjoy!
