Congrats on the purchase. We did almost the same as you. Previously owned a wonderful Layton Skyline Joey. We went to the Atlantic City RV show, saw our dealer who gave us a great deal on the SandPiper SAQ365. We also love the layout/floorplan. Ours is scheduled to come off production March 22nd. We are very excited.

Anyone actually have the washer dryer installed in there 365? Anyone have some pics of it installed. I am hearing that you have t go with a separate unit washer on one side dryer in the other. Is it possible to still do the combination washer/dryer to save some closet space or is there still a lot of closet space with the two separate units in there tha is everyone. We are really considering this unit but have none close by to go look at, so doing all our looking online.

We have a 315RE which has pretty much the same nose but shorter overall length. We have a washer in ours but chose not to go with a dryer. Just don't see the heat since we do mostly beach camping and we usually washing tshirts and trunks and towels and just hang them outside to dry.(under clothes over shower stall) With the front load model it spins the clothes almost dry. You can get a washer/dryer all in one unit model but not sure how venting would be. My vent is on other side of camper. I will get a picture of closet for you in a couple days that shows space with washer installed.

Truck for saq

Ok group, if you could do it all over again...what truck would you recommend to pull the saq. We are really trying not to move into a long bed. Open for suggestions...i am getting feedback that the f250 somewhat stuggled on long trips and other fifth wheel owners say no problem...

And by request from the misses...any suggestions on a washer/dryer? Does price matter? Anything for us to stay away from?

First time poster...

2013 365saq...no truck!

I have heard of people pulling these units with 3/4 tons but personally I would go 1 ton SRW minimum. I am assuming that was suppose to say struggles on long trips? Not sure why that would be if it has the same engine as its 350 counterpart. Gearing will play A roll as well, but the length of the trip should really not have anything to do with it. If you are talking of a F250 with a powerstroke and say a 3.73 rear end it will have the power to pull it but in my opinion without airbags at least it doesn't have the suspension to handle it.

As for washer dryer not sure what brand we are getting yet our unit is still about 2 weeks from delivery, but we got them to put a combination unit in ours, our dealer told the rep about it so I am thinking they are changing around the venting so it can all be on the one side. Now you can also get combo units that don't vent at all and turn the moisture into steam then condense it back to liquid and into the drain pipe.

Not sure I answered either if your questions but hopefully I helped shed a little light.

Gaucoin1 you would have been better off asking democrat or republican. Ill give u MY "opinion" only! The only real difference in 3/4 to 1 ton Ford Dodge or Chevy is the rear suspension or more specifically the addition of overload springs and with that said a 3/4 ton can be ordered with overloads from the factory. As far as the drive train motor,trans, rear axle all the same. Anyway IMHO the real safety bonus comes in the step up to a dually simply from a rear tire failure stand point. The whole stability thing I feel is there, but is truly minimal compared to the security of another set of tires on the ground. Just do the math the camper empty weighs 12800 lbs so loaded your well over 13000 lbs hooked to a 9000 lb truck. The trailer has a 2 ton weight advantage for selecting the path of travel or trajectory in a blow out scenario. With a single rear wheel vehicle a rear truck tire blow out at highway speed IMHO is going to be a harrowing experience at best. So for the added safety and emergency control of only 2 additional tire plus the additional weight carrying capacity and added stability I feel it's a no brainer for a unit of the SAQ's size. Also I'm one of the people who also like short bed trucks so I tow with a Dodge mega cab short bed dually with a slider (pull rite).

Hope this helped
Marc

Dude I have to change my sig I just sold it on Saturday it brought $14800 I couldn't believe it. Those OBS Fords are still STRONG in the market and that one was garage kept and I mean "KEPT" I was sorry to see it go but for that price and I couldn't tow the new camper with it and the kids 7 and 3 like the tv in the Dodge so I let it go. That truck was rare I went to Michigan from Pa to buy it back in 04.
