I am currently out of the country, but will be back in town on Friday and heading out in the sandpiper. I will check my pin box height when I get ready to hook up on Friday and let you know.

I'll be honest, some of the reviews I've been reading about new FR/Sandpipers has me concerned about what to expect from a quality perspective. Sounds like these are sloppily built with little to no final quality checks before they hit the road.

Not trying to set myself up for failure but it appears I might be better off not reading too much more until Impick it up.

Anyway, thanks again to everyone!

Nothing is built like it used to be. Cars, homes, RVs, insert item here.......

Thanks in advance,

I'll get you numbers in our driveway and numbers at the site tomorrow evening. The driveway is not too level, so I am hoping that the site will be better numbers for you.

Not the same model, but I am guessing the pin height should be the same.

Was ~52" just before it slid into the ball. I didn't think about it before hand, but I have an Andersen hitch so it could sit different. I did measure to the bottom of the pin box, and not the bottom of the Andersen adapter.

I hope that helps, but with the different hitch it may not.

Jealous! I have been told mine comes off the production line Friday.. Hoping the dealer get it to Omaha and prepped quickly (yet done well). I fear it will still be a couple weeks before I can take delivery. Please keep this thread posted with your first impressions!

Check everything with a fine tooth comb! Mine has been in for warranty work for 2 months now and I probably won't get it back until almost May.

I definitely plan to spend a lot of time doing the inspection..... But is there anyway you can share the big outstanding problems you are still having? It would be great to have a heads up on those big items.

Thanks in advance!
Chris
