Question Looking at Sandpipers

Hi guys,
My boyfriend and I are looking at purchasing our first RV to live full-time. We were looking at the Sandpiper and loved the floorplans and large windows and I was hoping someone that owns one may have some insight. Are they made well? Any up sides or downsides, alternative suggestions. So far most of our info about the Sandpiper comes from salespeople and the Forest River it's a bit biased. Thanks for your help!

The Sierra/Sandpiper lines are considered in the upper middle of the RV classes. They have a lot of options and so-called luxuries that can be added in. I haven't had any major problems with mine in the 2 1/2 years of ownership. The major complaint on the forum, has been the undersized axles on the bigger units. If ordering one, opt for the largest axle offered, if buying off lot, look for the ones that were ordered in that way.

I'll second what AquaMan said! After axle replacement on ours, no problems.

Welcome to the forums and good luck with your search for the right RV! It looks like some members have been able to offer feedback already.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
