I'm partial to the Sierra 365saq myself. While the U-shape dinettes offer more seating room, the tables are usually smaller. Depending on the number and ages of children you have, you might give this one a look. We camp with 1-5, or more, kids, and the bunkhouse has lots of storage and floor space. My kids would rather sit on the floor or lower bunks and play, than sit a table. I believe you can get the 365saq in a double u-shaped dinette if that is something you really want. Best of luck in search and whatever you choose.

We looked at the Prime Times and really considered them. I really liked the barstools idea. Our only concern is that we felt like the awnings were really far forward. I had a hard time envisioning where a picnic table would go without blocking a door or storage hatch. Maybe I'm wrong and in practice it wasn't a real issue. Just something we thunk about.

We're definitely spoiled! I get jealous of people with their small rigs and the maneuverability that goes with them. But then- we really like our inside spaciousness! I want the magical RV- little on the outside, palatial on the inside.

I really don't have anything bad to say about the 365SAQ- they were on our short list! I'm glad that they're now putting extra supports on the lower bunk in the bunkhouse- that was one of our big issues at the time.

And yes- I only wish all brands were fortunate enough to have their own SabreSam! He's super duper!

I totally agree - we have this one too and the big quality shower was one of the top selling points for our new Crusader 325RES.

Sabre was on the short list for us, so I don't think you can go wrong.

No outside kitchen. They only seem to come on bunkhouses in the bigger units.

To be honest...If I cook outside it's in the smoker, BBG grill or I am looking to start dutch oven cooking.
