That is a beast of a rig! Good luck with it!

On a separate thread in the forum, aquaman installed an access door for the fridge which is to the right of the rear door. on the 2012 (and maybe '13) this is where they put the fridge. At some point they decided to abandon that and put them on the counter in the outside kitchen. I wondered if the Sandpiper did the same as they did with the Sierra model.

Very brave of him to cut into the exterior wall but it looks clean once complete.

If I recall right, I think the 2010's and some of the 2011's had the hatch door fridge, they did away with it in the 2012's, brought it back(maybe as an option because I never saw one with it, but was included on floorplan) in 2013, and looks like they removed it again for the 2014.

My philosophy... if it aint broke, don't fix it. Maybe in 2013 they had some extra doors. It always amazes me how one unit the same year can have different features. Its almost like, hey, we have this extra door, what should we do with it... I dunno, go install it in that one... LOL

I think they should offer a customizable outside kitchen. Offer like 3 different plans. Would think that other than the sink placement, everything else could be easily swapped from one camper to the next, since most kitchens are in a bunk slide.

My outside fridge is in the outside kitchen, so it looks like the stayed the same on both brands.

The only difference between the sandpiper and Sierra are the nose cones. They are built side by side in the factory.

Hooked up to the new truck for the first time this morning and hauled her to the dealer for some new axles. Here we are just before leaving storage:



Someone had asked earlier about the actual weight of the rig vs what it said on the sticker. Well, here is a picture of the sticker:



When I took it to the scales directly from the dealer it weighed 12,980lbs so they were close.

Must have to stand a long ways back in order to fit the truck and camper in the picture.

Nice looking setup. Looks like a lot of fun.
