Warm greetings from Northern Michigan

Hello campers ~

My wife and I live near Houghton Lake (Mich.) and recently purchased a beautiful 2002 Sandpiper 27' Bunkhouse Travel Trailer. Our son constructed a 12' x 12' wood deck that rests up against the front door and we have table, chairs, cooler, flowers and plants upon the new deck.

We're very excited to own our first RV and it is beautiful. I contacted Forest River and requested an owners manual as the RV we purchased from Camping World (in Houghton Lake) did not provide one. There's a lot about our new Bunkhouse that I don't know about. If someone has a ready link to an on-line PDF Owners Manual then please post it here or kindly send me a message. Would be grateful.

Glad to have found these forums and we look forward to meeting you folks and learning new things.

Thanks kindly!

Welcome! Glad you're here.

The owners manuals that come with new RV's are pretty worthless. Many these days don't even have one. I would suggest you visit the website of each component vendor installed in your trailer and you will probably fine the manuals for each there. Lippert, Dometic, Suburban, Atwood,...etc.
