Compare Sandpiper/Sierra to Wildcat/Wildcat Maxx

My wife and I have 4 kids ages 1 to 9 years and are looking to purchase our first trailer and planning on a 5th wheel. My inlaws just purchased a FR Berkshire and it is very nice. Started looking at 5th wheels for us and found a couple floor plans we like in the Sandpiper 30IOK and also the Wildcat 312BHX. Can you please tell me the difference between these two brands of Forest River? Which one is higher quality than the other? We want 4 bunks for the kids and a nice size unit. Can't read longer than 35' or from my understanding we won't be able to get in some parks with it.

How do they compare to a Keystone Cougar, which is the most popular brand in this area it seems? Would be a 320QBSWE or 330RBKWE

We plan to take at least one trip that is 10-14 days each summer seeing the sights and putting on some miles, plus a few weekend trips to the camp grounds in the mountains out west or along the rivers (hot summer desert weather). We live in Washington State if that helps.

from what i know, the Sandpiper/Sierra is a higher quality/amenities trailer than the Wildcat lines.
not saying the Wildcat isn't a good trailer, just that the S & S lines are a step up. they also offer bigger trailers than Wildcat. S & S has a number of 4 slide trailers, while Wildcat has a max of 3 slides.

I just purchased a Wildcat last month and over all I think the value for the money is good, not the fanciest but the floor plan is what we liked about. 4 slides with two of them in the bunkhouse so the kids(4 also) have plenty of room. There is a few warranty things but that is expected. It is 38', as was our previous camper and I haven't had a problem with it being to big, but I am also in the South. Hope you find what your looking for!
