Hemisphere 368 RLBH

Hello everyone, while I am not currently a Forest River owner, my parents are (2013 Georgetown XL 378 TS). My wife and I are Jayco owners right now but are considering the 368 RLBH for its layout and the fact that we don't have to give up the rear living room. My question is what has been your experiences with the Hemisphere fifth wheel? Is there any difference in quality between the Hemisphere, Heritage Glen, or the Sandpiper?

I know every manufacturer has its bad apples but Jayco seems to be a very good product in terms of quality, but right now they don't offer this layout.

We bought a hemisphere 336rlt. We camped about 4 weeks in it this summer, and absolutely love it. We bought it mainly for the king bed, and kitchen island. Heritage Glen is the exact same camper as the hemi.

We have the Salem Hemisphere 346QBUD. Love it! Quite comfy and have had no probs. We took a trip, from MD to Gulf Shores AL and then ran it to San Fransisco Ca; then back to MD. Went out west on I10 and returned east on I80. So ran thru the deserts and the Rockies; using both the heat and AC. Trailer handles great! Pulled by a GMC 3500HD Denali, Duramax/Allison transmission, 4 WD, standard bed. Have a Reese Elite 16K hitch and using a Reese sidewinder with Fifth Airborne hitch pin. Smooth ride - no bucking or chucking. Very Happy Camper!

The Heritage Glen and Hemisphere are sister lines. They are built on the same line and just receive different graphics.

We are repeat FR buyers, and like our Heritage Glen enormously. However, when shopping we were not mindset on being brand loyal and looked at Jayco White Hawks and Jayco's newest acquisition - OpenRange and took a look at the light models. I can say that the Heritage Glen was the best value for the dollar from my very critical perspective.

How is everyone liking the 368RLBHK? I'm looking at picking one up and was wondering if anyone who commented or hasn't had any updates or reviews of their 5ers.

Does anyone have issues keeping the camper cool. I just purchased a Salem hemisphere 368RLBH (2015). I live in Alabama and it's running mid 90's outside. I have both AC units on with living area thermostat set at 76 and it's running 82 in the living area and 77 in the master bedroom. With fan blowing the ad from the bedroom to the rear, and a fan circulating in the living room and BH.
