35QB4 vs. 355QBQ

Looking at a bunkhouse with a king bed. These two look very similar. What is going to be the major differences between the Cedar Creek Silverback line and the Sierra?

Thanks for your help!

We chose the 35QB4 after looking at several models including Sierra/Sandpiper. We felt that Silverback was little better quality. Corian was one thing my wife really wanted and it was standard on the Silverback. There were a lot of things that were standard that weren't on other brands. As far as the 355QBQ, wife hates the bath in the bedroom. We have a lot of guests so thats not good when you're sleeping and somebody wants to shower. Someone else posted about the condensation in the bedroom being a problem because the fan is in the toilet. We really lover our Silverback so far. A few minor issues but nothing big. I would definitely recommend. It.

From what i know the silverback has better insulation, axles, counter top s,and other more quality components. But the sierra is a good trailer too but i have a silverback and have owned other cedar creeks so i lean towards the cedar creek line.

What kind of hitch does the 35QB4 have on it? I ask because after a while I know I'd like to tow a second trailer with some sort of "toy" on it.

1 1/4" hitch is the only factory option. I spoke to FR about getting a 2" and they said that there had been too many problems they felt were caused by double towing. The hitch is rated for 150 lbs. max and no towing. I just wanted to tow a small utility trailer but I guess I'll at least wait until the warranty is out before possibly installing a 2" myself. Can't risk a voided warranty with a Lippert chassis.

I have the 2 inch on my 2012 silverback factory installed. I use it only for bikes. What kind of problems have you heard about?

Google search for problems with Lippert chassis. I was reading quite a bit on this forum about it. Kinda concerns me.
