HELP! Trying to decide between a sandpiper/Sierra 355qbq or 365saq

I am looking for some pros and cons on either of the above trailers. We are looking to purchase a 2011 and are trying to decide between these two options. They are both so similar. Also, any feedback on Sandpiper vs Sierra would be greatly appreciated!
Cheers!

Six of one, half dozen of another. The big difference is the main bathroom. If it were me I would choose the model from the dealer who I thought would provide me the best after-the-sale service. Very Important.

We just ordered the 365 saq because of the bathroom in the master. We really didn't like the shower in your room. I can't see why you'd get a qbq with the saq around.

As for the brand they are the exact same off the same line. We talked to the factory rep for both lines at our rv show and they both said choose the better dealer

I'm a little biased but you might consider the 355 BHQ from Crusader.

Prime Time Manufacturing, Manufacturers of travel trailers and fifth wheels

About 1,000 pounds lighter, too!

I saw both yesterday at the Charlotte RV show and both were very nice, but I did like the Sandpiper ($37k at the show) a little better.

If only i had a dually... if only i had not purchased a tt a few months ago.... btw above unit: sold

I currently have a 2011 Sandpiper 355QBQ and absolutely love it. When we ordered the camper, we asked if they could flip around the kitchen to make it more 'open'? They could not w/o a big expense. We looked long and hard trying to find a split bath-toilet area with bunks. It fit our needs. Then on Monday I saw the 365SAQ. It was exactly what we wanted last March when we ordered the 355. However, after camping with the shower in the bedroom, I did not like having all the moisture in there due to the fan being located in the toilet area. So, yesterday we ordered a 365SAQ which will solve that problem. Both of them have the outside kitchen which we absolutely love. Good luck with your decision. Happy camping.

We ordered ours from our local dealer due to trading our 355 in. I did call RVW and talked to Preston. They however only want to sell new and not take in trades due to inventory. I understand that. Our dealer gave us a very good price on both the trade(they have someone already wanting it) and the order of the 365. We ordered the 365(like our 355) with the generator prep, 2nd air, slide toppers, electric jacks, and under belly storage. I hope to be getting the 365 within a week or so. Good luck in your hunt.
