New Chaparral 390qsmb

Just ordered our next new fifth wheel. Coachmen Chaparral 390qsmb. Interesting floor plan with mid coach bunkhouse and rear living room. We are trading in our Chaparral 345bhs which we bought in March 2014. It was a left over 2013. Anyone out there have a 390qsmb? What do you think of the rig?

We bought ours last May and absolutely love the floorplan. Taking it in for a 6-month punch list in 2 weeks, and the list is VERY small (insignificant trim issues they can easily fix). Most recent trip starting having an issue with the jacks, but I'm not concerned as I think that will be easily fixed, too. I was concerned about fridge access while underway, but it's not a big deal. Had the dealer install a generator, and that's worked well, too. Plenty of storage. No complaints from me!

Thanks for the reply. We will take delivery of our rig in about three weeks. We head to Arizona at the end of November for 4 months. We had trouble with the rear jacks on our 346BS. Turned out to be a bad switch. We carry two Honda EU2000 generators that we can run in tandem if necessary. Never thought about permanently installing a generator. Don't dry camp often. Only a night here or there while enroute to somewhere. Portables work well in that situation. Just need to make coffee and maybe run a hair dryer for a few minutes. Getting excited to receive our new home on wheels.
