We just bought a new 2015 big horn 3010 RE. We love the floor plan. My only complaint is the chairs. We have a few things to get fixed, but I guess that goes with buying new, working out the kinks.

I have a 2014 3010RE Bighorn. I have used it for about 40 nights in Utah, Colorado and Galveston, Texas. That is 4000 miles and it has been trouble free so far.

We bought a 3570 and are currently using it in Michigan. It's our first unit so it's hard to know how great it truly is. No complaints from us so far. Click image for larger version

The Big Horn is a very popular full size unit. Most require a dual rear wheel 1 ton due to the weight, however.

If you're interested in late model used, PM me. I know a dealer that always has'em in stock and he takes trades.

We're making the decision between the Big Horn and the Sanibel 3901 by Prime Time. Sanibel is winning out Prime Time Manufacturing, Manufacturers of travel trailers, fifth wheels and toy haulers*S* But we're waiting for the Fl show to make a final decision. Going to be sure we don't miss something we may like better. The Sanibel's front living room is larger than the Big Horn model. I like the kitchen better as well. I like the extra storage of the raised bedroom in the Big horn Model 3755FL. Storage is needed full timing. We're planning to go full time this year after selling everything What a lot of stuff we have LOL Ebay is a great way to get rid of some Old stuff that is now considered antique like me

I would be concerned about the brochure listed CCC of 2357lbs for the Sanibel. That 2357lbs will surely be less as it rolls into the dealers lot. If you're full timing you more than likely will maxed when loaded.


The BH 3755 is even worse at 2040lbs.

The Bighorn is rated and warranted for full time use, not sure about the Sanibel. We had two Bighorns when we started our full time adventures. I hated the split bath in the first floor plan so we traded for a little longer all together bath model. Both were great units and many others enjoy theirs. We traded again for the Landmark with more bells and whistles and it was a great deal.

Good luck with your choice.

JayC, thats what we did also. We totally love our Landmark. We have the Newport 365, and couldn't be happier. If your going fulltime like us, you have to be comfortable, and we are.

Jammer,

Just curious, have you ever scaled your rig?

That's the floor plan we are looking at and comparing to the Sanibel. Also looking at the front living Solitude

Nope. I know how much it weighs.
