Howdy from Colorado

Looking to buy an RV. Can't decide between the 355QBQ, 365SAQ, 35QB4, and some other offerings from Keystone and Open Range. But me, I'm leaning towards the 355QBQ.

See you around the forums.

For us, it came down to our wish list - our must haves, must not haves, and nice to haves. It limited the list down to just a couple (from a total of 60+ models looked at - mostly online). Once there, we walked through a bunch and always found something that we weren't happy with. Ultimately, we bought this one based on pre-production pictures straight from the factory rep. We're very happy with our choice. (btw, this is a bunk house model, too.

It's funny that you're leaning towards the 355QBQ - it had something from our "must not have" list: a walk-thru bathroom in the master bath. Just goes to show... different strokes for different folks! It's less than 40' sure was nice, though.

We looked at many also, and our must haves were opposing slides in the bunk house, outside kitchen w/sink (one model didn't have one), 1 1/2 baths, and king bed in master. The large bunkhouse is worth every penny. Some days you can't have too much seperation from the kids! We ended up going with the Sierra 365saq. Had everything we wanted plus extras.

Thanks for the replies folks!

Right now, the only "must haves" that I've figured out are:
  • Two points of entry (two doors)
  • King sized bed
  • Bunkhouse with at least 3 beds, preferably four
  • <40' long, preferably closer to 30' but that ain't happenin in a fiver, heh

Anyway, I'll post back if I end up in a Forest River, heh.
