we got the 2011 356 QLB sport package and love the trailer. what sold me was the sliding glass patio door for the vapor wall. WOW, an actual door with no folding fold up pseudo futon couches on the walls and not parking quads in the kitchen. love it. pulls like a dream. F250 powerstroke Reese hitch, no worries/no problems. plenty of beds, roomy, i'd buy another one. glass enclosed shower, the list goes on. just wished the dinette horseshoe seats were a little more comfortable. but other than that, we love it.

I'll echo that comment about the dinette seats, not enough padding for me. Maybe some different foam would do the trick?
Also we had a custom dinette table made since we weren't able to slide behind the table that came in the unit. Obviously the trailer is designed for families with small children, but being just the Wife and I, a smaller table worked better.

I agree, the dinette sucks. I have a friend that does custom wood work and we are thinking about getting him to make us a table so adults can sit behind it. We are also wanting him to put folding legs on it so when we have the slide in we can fold the table and place it in the garage so we can have easy access to the kitchen area. We will probably have him put a design on the table for our "center peice". This is 1 of 3 gifts he made for me and the wife for our wedding.

Looks good! I did the same LED light modification over the winter since we do a lot of dry camping. We also had a leak from our shower which I traced to a tiny hole in the caulking along the inside where the bottom of the metal frame sits on the fiberglass pan.
I have to agree the way some of the switches were wired made no sense. I ended up labeling them to make it easier to know what is what.

Hi everyone, thanks for all the comments and intel on the 356 QLB. We just bought a 2013 model two months ago and had a great time bringing it back from the dealership up in Kentucky, including two KOA camp stops. I'll definitely be going with a minimum 5kW generator based on ng2951's advice above.

I really like the led light stip under the awning. My only question, does it attract mosquitos? Up here in ND if the wind isn't howling the mosquitos are swarming.

i'm ready to find those LEDs and install them. as far as skeeters go, we use the "OFF" fans or the citronella candles. that keeps'em away here in Texas.
