Heading to another dealer tomorrow that has allot better advertised prices, and may just leave a little lighter in the wallet.

I have not been happy with their over the phone trade in value of my DP, but I just might have lucked up and sold it tonight to a friend.
Sandpiper / sierra 5ers, both the 376 and the 385 were my runner ups when i ordered our Palomino Sabre. I liked the Sierra's colors at the time (almost 2 years ago ) but sandpiper has a nice tan exterior now.
I would have recommended the 36qbok Sabre. Its almost identical, or pretty close to the sandpiper/sierra 365saqb.
......but sabre was just moved to a FR line instead of being a palomino line, so i don't know how they rank.

I think the sandpiper/sierra's and the palomino sabres, are alot better, but heavier campers than the hg and salem. Just from what i have seen.....7k axles instead of 6k....etc.

Good luck and have fun shopping!

Sounds like you need to go with the 356aqb.



Just my $0.02

I agree with this, went through two trailers trying for a cheaper 365saqb, ended up with the real thing cause they're just the cats meow

Well.... Ended up with a Sandpiper 376BHOK. That was one we had never considered, but when we actually walked in one we knew it was the right one.

Delivery should be next Saturday.

I really liked that floor plan too!!
Its pretty pin heavy though if i remember correctly, but I've seen a few people pull them with 3/4 tons.

Thanks guys.

I'm gonna be over, but only for a trip or two. If my 2500 hd doesn't seem to like the weight then I'll put it up for sale and keep my eyes open for a DRW. But honestly.... The campgrounds are full of 3/4 tons pulling heavier units so we decided to go with the fiver we wanted and decide on the truck situation based on how it did.

Congrats on the new 5er.

Keep your truck tires aired up to the max. It will probably be your rear axle weight that is over and tires are generally the limiting factor.

Depending on the year and body style on your F250, you may come in under numbers.
