Hi all.

We have a 2021 Sandpiper 5th wheel, our fourth RV but first 5th wheel. Towing with a 2020 Ford F-350 dually diesel. We previously had a Fleetwood Discovery 40X, a Rexhall Anthem, and a single axle Prowler tag along.

We like the layout, features and materials are good, but with 15k miles in the first year we have had quite a few problems: two blown tires (Castle Rock Chinese hand grenades), broken shackles on both sides of the rear axle, dinner table not mounted well and fell over, sink came loose and dropped down on one side, etc. It's currently at the dealership (again) to correct the last couple of things they didn't have time for before I had to take it out again.

Sorry to hear about the issues with your 5th wheel.

Knock on virtual wood. Our new travel trailer that we bought in March has done well on the many trips weve taken it on.
Tow vehicle: 2017 Ford Expedition XLT EL factory tow package. Added towing mirrors, 10 ply tires on separate rims, sumo springs, larger rear sway bar.
