Hello

Just wanted to say hello. I registered awhile ago but never posted.

The wife and I are proud owners of a sandpiper sport and love it. Only a few minor problems here and there but nothing major.

The only thing I wish to add is about 4 feet onto the length. With two little girls, the wife, and a dog it gets a little cramped.

Picture is of my favorite place to camp, and my two dogs, one of which is no longer with us.

Congratulations on the new rig and I'm glad you decided to post. I hope you have many enjoyable trips in it.

Welcome to the site, good to see another toy hauler on here. Here is a pic of our favorite place to camp. It is in the Rocky Mountains in the Crowsnest Pass in Southern Alberta. That is Crowsnest Mountain in the background.
Cheers
Bear

Bear, that looks like a beautiful area. I cant wait to start traveling to places like that. I have three weeks vacation a year and am going to start planning some big trips.

By the way, isn't that TV a little overkill? I love it.

The tow vehical is no where near Over Kill. I carry my Harley and my 800 Polaris in the garage of the trailer, I carry the 300 and the 500 Polaris on the deck of the truck, I also carry 200 gal of fresh water on the deck of the truck, then I tow my Jeep behind the trailer. Total all up weight is over 45,000 lbs. I have less money in my Volvo than I do in my old 2002 Dually diesel, it rides better than a Caddy, turns tighter than any 3/4 ton or 1 ton on the market, stops WAY better than ANY tow vehical out there, pulls any hill on cruise control and I still get better than 10 MPG at 65 mph and I will never mile it out.
Cheers

I would love to have a TV like that but I've heard there are some ridiculous weight fees here in Ca. I wouldn't have any place to park it either. Maybe someday!

Lots of people in Ca are buying HDT's, they just re register them as motor homes.
