We recently started the search for our first 5th wheel. One that has my wife's interest is a 2019 Forest River Sandpiper 382VIEW.

I have a few concerns about the quality and am interested in hearing from Sandpiper owners on how satisfied they are with their rigs. I am a little concerned that we might be moving down a level going from our 2011 Palomino Sabre TT to the Sandpiper. The wood trim does not seem as solid and it seems most higher mid-level and above 5th wheelers have a central VAC which the sandpiper does not. I could easily overlook this if current owners have not had problems with their units.

On edit I should mention we are also looking at a 2017 Jayco - Pinnacle
Floorplan: 36FBTS

The Jayco seems much better built to me.

Between the two I think the Pinnacle would be the better choice as far as the quality level goes.

If your looking for "top dog" line, the Sandpiper isn't FR's top dog. Think it's few notches down. Jayco's Pinnacle I believe is their top line model.
