nylon,

The 375 rear bunk cools much better than the 365 did, however, even with 2 AC's they will run all day when it's 90* or above. We leave ours seasonally parked and have no shade, but with both units running I can keep the whole camper 70*
We went with the Brownstone interior, fireplace, remote keyless, slide toppers, 2nd AC with heat strip. Didn't order the larger fridge because I have a 12x16 shed behind my camper where I keep a full size residential fridge for all our food (and beer.) In fact, I think I've only had the fridge inside the camper turned on maybe twice. Didn't order the levelers because I knew I wouldn't be pulling it, and didn't order the convection oven, but kind of wish I would have.

The unit cools fine for us with both going and with just the one main unit. The MB closet can get hot if you don't open the sliding doors and run the BR AC. There are 2 filters now on the returns. If you go with the fridge and fireplace you will loose some cabinet space FYI. I did not go with the FP just for that reason as I cook a lot, so I carry pots and pans. Without the space under the TV I would be limted to just the few spots provided. If you are early spring camper and late fall you might really want it.

Again if the levelers were not the Attwood I might have done with them. Orginally it was a 4 leg system, so that 6 might be really nice. Still need to be close though.

The new low profile AC's sound like a fighter jet taking off outside. When both are going you know it.

All great information, thank you. Hopefully I'll be able to swing this!

I didn't mention that we got the camper after the mid year updates which has different light fixtures, and more importantly, a new color scheme with the light colored front cap. The brown was pretty, but I saw too many issues on the forums with fading after only a year or two. The light color should help with the heat issue in the front closet also.

charlank,

I was worried about my brown front cap as well, but so far, so good. I do keep a close eye on, and a heavy coat of wax so hopefully it sill stay looking new for many years to come.

We purchased this unit last spring and have been very pleased with it. On colder mornings/days we have been known to run the fireplace to take the chill off of things instead of running the furnace. We went from a travel trailer of 28' to this one and one problem I have found is booking reservations earlier to ensure we can get a large enough site. We went bow hunting last fall; and the bunk house became the mud room that held all of the hunting clothes and such.

Having the bunk room linolium and the second bath entry does save on the dirt. The bunk room in the 365 was wall to wall carpet and I had to steam clean that thing several times a year. Now we just have an area rug that gets shaken out and clean up is much easier.

Question for the 375 owners. I am looking at the 345BHTS but would really like to try and swing the 375 but I am a little scared of the length and weight. I have a 2014 Ford F-350 king ranch CCSB diesels, my door sticker is right @3500 cargo capacity. So would I be pushing it with my truck or would I be fine. Thanks

Eric,
Your truck is made for hauling trailers like ours. The 3500 is the cargo weight, and the tow capacity should be 11,000 pounds. We have actually meet a fellow while camping that had the same truck and pulls this trailer without no problem.

I'm pulling ours with a 2013 Chevy 3500 duramax CCSB SW and have no problem with payload, GCWR, control or power. We had 20+ mph side winds today.
