We are currently looking to upgrade to a Fifth Wheel from our Zinger TT. We are currently looking into two different options because we're getting a good deal on each. The two we're looking at are the Wildcat 344QBOK and the Salem Hemisphere 356QBQ with an outside kitchen. We did a pro/con list for both and still can't decide. Any suggestions? We know the Wildcat has 2 inch walls and 2 inch insulated floors and the Salem only has 1 inch walls, etc. The Salem has power everything and the central vacuum system. We just don't know... Any suggestions are welcomed

Wildcat is a better quality RV. But to me floor plan is very important.

We went with a Wildcat. We loved the floor plan, and bang for the buck it is hard to beat.

For me, the floorplan and sleeping arrangements were king. My needs were different than yours- I only have 2 kids, but I often have my in-laws tagging along. There were different bunkhouse layouts that the only beds were on the floor and I couldn't see them wanting to have to get up/down each time. I'm not sure if either of these fall into that, but it might be something to think about.

The other side of things is the size of the beds. You don't say how old your 3 boys are or if y'all are short/average/tall- but we found out that my cousin is too tall for our bunks in my current camper. He ended up on the dinette and the next night on the air sofa bed when they stayed with us in July.
