Yes, let us know what you like and don't like about it. I am buying ours without even seeing one, so I'm very anxious about it.

I'm in somewhat the same shape as you, except I have seen and been in one. We absolutely loved the floor plan and the DW loved the bathroom (color etc.). We have looked at over 100 different campers at various rv shows and online and always came back to this one! The DW always said "this is the one with the nice bathroom", and I said yes, the one with the PARTY COUCH and a nice open layout with the TV in front of you instead of having to sit with you head turned to the side to see it. It's not like we spend a lot of time inside but when you HAVE to you might as well be comfortable. The DK's already have their bunks picked out, although they have not even seen it in person. It is leaving OHIO tomorrow and is supposed to be to me either Tuesday or Wednesday. We're all getting excited and have a maiden voyage planned for the second weekend in May. Hope the weather cooperates......and if it doesn't I guess we will have very nice accommodations available.

Blackgold, so did you buy yours from RV Wholesalers? That is who we bought from. You must be having yours delivered. We are driving to Ohio to get ours and will be picking it up on Monday, May 6. Please post after you get yours and let us know if everything went well.

Update: Had a great time camping in our new 376BHOK this weekend. No major problems while camping. The trailer was easy to hook up with my B&W hitch and the duramax pulled it really well. The list of minor repairs are shower leaks from under the bottom sliding glass rail (doesn't seem to have any sealant under it),one of the latches on the outdoor compartments will not latch and there is a peice of weather stripping coming loose from one of the windows on the side of the slide. Other than that everything was comfortable with lots of space.
Here is the problem we had when we returned home: MAKE sure that all of the doors are shut. My son put out the slides when we got home and the bunk slide caught the half bath door (that he said was shut) and bent one of the brackets under the slide and about tore the trim off the inside of the slide. After pulling it back in it did bend the bracket back and I fixed the trim, could have been alot worse. The problem is when all the slide are in you can not get to the bunk room and because the living room slide is the last one to open and the bunk door has to be closed (mine does not have the valves to shut off certain slides). I will make me a check list to go over before we leave and probably add extra latches to the doors. This can happen when putting in the sdides too.
Other than that we really enjoyed it. Feels like being at home alot more room than our other camper (28' Sunny Brook/Cedar Creek bumper pull).

Thanks for the info and if you get a checklist together it would be awesome if you could post it. This may help those of us on our first outing. Sorry to hear of your misfortune!!!! Sucks when a person takes the NEW out of their unit on the first outing. The problem is that there is so much to watch for when you can't actually watch for them while you are running the slides in and out. Glad you enjoyed the 376bhok and it was what you thought it would be. Mine just left OHIO.......supposed to be here around noon tomorrow Thanks again!

Have had the same issue with my 365. During a trip to Yellowstone/Tetons at one time or another all 4 moldings were taken off by either passage doors or closet doors/drawers. When we returned home I bought a set of the bunk latches (those with the large d handle and long throw) and placed one on the bathroom door and the kitchen/back room door. I purchased two sets of the TV hold downs for the rear drawers.(screwed them in not just the adhesive) I placed as velcro strap thru the two closet doors. I have not had a single problem since taking these steps reguardless of the road surfaces I have been on.

I have a 365 but when I did my walk thru the salesman said to always open the outside 1/2 bath door. And make sure that the inside door is closed to make sure it doesn't get hung up.

Hi guys, Im new to this forum. Just ordered my Sandpiper 376 BHOK. Cant wait till its in my drive way!
RV Dealer and Toy Haulers Specialists in Ringgold, VA
I am thankful to all who gave us the "heads up" on operating the slides so as not to tear off any doors etc. Have a few questions:
1) how is the stability after set up and camping?
2) Is master ac unit bothersome/loud being directly over master bed at night?
3) Is it wired for TV in kids bed room? outside compartment under awning?
4)Did you opt for the 7 year ext. warranty (not by forest river)? If so which one? cost?
5) The built in stereo says "DVD" on front. Does this mean it is connected to the TV above to watch DVD's? sounds like a dumb question but my buddy has same 2012 and his does not play DVD's on the TV.

You will love your 376 BHOK. I'll try to answer your questions.

1) Stability for us seemed really good. We did add some supports under the steps though and that helped a lot with movement from people coming in and out of the camper.
2) The master bedroom AC does make noise, but I don't think it interferes with sleeping. It's really good to have the AC there, so it's worth the fan noise.
3) The spot for the TV in the bunk room and in the outside compartment under the awning both have outlets to connect the TVs to the antenna, plus a place to plug in for power. I wish the spot in the bunk room was a little larger though for a bigger TV. I think ours is 28 or 29 inches. It was an odd size, but I bought the biggest I could that would fit the spot. We attached a mounting bracket for the TV to hang on. You can fit a 46 inch TV in the outside compartment. Bought that size and keep it in the master bedroom, but can move it outside if we want. We really end up all piling in the king bed in the master and watching movies. With the big TV in there it makes for great movie nights.
4) We didn't buy the extended 7 year warranty, but did buy the extra year from Forest River for $250.
5) The DVD player under the TV in the living area does play DVDs on the TV. Works like a charm, but you sometimes have to play around with buttons a bit to get it going.

Hope that helps. Feel free to ask questions any time. You will probably want to do something different for your tables because they are very wobbly. Just a heads up on that.
