Friends we camp with have a Keystone Mountaineer. I looked up the model you listed, it looks almost identical to the one they have. The one consistent complaint they have is that the upper bedroom doesn't cool off when it is hot. there is a second after market a/c that the previous owners installed in theirs, but they still have a hard time keeping the upper bedroom cool enough. Yet the back bedroom is freezing cold because there are two vents in that room. something worth looking at, where the a/c vents are.

No opinion on the two units - it's a personal choice depending on: final negotiated price, condition (of the used one), etc.

Check to see if there's owner's club forums for each for more info.

IMO - I wouldn't base my decision on opinions (mine included) from an internet forum - *unless* you discovered a bunch of serious negatives.

Hitch = PullRite SuperGlide.

Good luck!

I would do some googling to research the price on the used one.

If that 10K is the diff when compared to the MSRP of new - not near enough mark down for sure.

We have an 07 342PHT and love it. A second AC is a must as the rear bunk room will freese before the master cools off. We added the second AC to ours. We have only had a few problems with it. In the bunk room the on fold down bunks the latch broke that holds the beds folded up and some of the bolts for the fold up bunk brackets stripped out. Typical pealing decal issue but keystone has sent me free replacements for those as they start to peel. Good luck with your decision

Have had a rig for 6 years now. Thought I needed a slider because of comments here so I got one. It is a manual slide but I have NEVER used it. Wife and I look carefully when making a sharp turn.

Read in this blog where the lady bought a Keystone in Florida and lost the roof in Wyoming. She got a nasty attitude from Keystone.

If that's all you could draw from that thread, you need to go back and re-read it. Buyer Beware

To help you with the hitch portion of your thread. Get the PullRite SuperGlide, Its a great hitch and you wont be in and out of the truck. Others will disagree but with my Wide Body Attitude, I couldn't imagine trying to do without it.

I lean towards new. I like Mountaineer, but that 2007 is past it's prime and should never be within 10K of that new Sandpiper or it's overpriced.

I'm not sure I would say a 5er is past it's prime just due to age.
It depends on maintenance, how it was stored, was it lived in, etc...
Overpriced is another issue.
