Excited new 5ers

We just ordered a Sandpiper 365SAQ from RVW, can't wait to get it. We are currently in a 34' KZ bumper pull with 1 slide, so this is a big step up for us. We full time it with our 2 kids and 3 pets, I travel for work, so the fam tags along.

Hope to learn a lot, will post pics when we are all set up!

The GVWR on the 365SAQ is 14,060lbs, will my '01 Ranger handle that?

We are working on getting a 06 or newer F-350 Crew Cab Lariat DRW, should be plenty of truck.

Congrats on the Sandpiper!

We researched them online and really wanted one, but couldn't get it at a price we could comfortably afford. We just brought home a Sabre 32BHTS yesterday and first trip of the year is tomorrow. I work from home most of the time and we're thinking of staying in our camper for a week or two at a time--just to give us a break from town.

Again, congrats.

Congrats on the new digs. Hey...I think if you put bigger tires on the Ranger, it should do fine.
