    Hello everyone.

    I'm new to rving. I'm looking at purchasing a 07' Forest River Sand Piper 40' with triple slide toy hauler. I'll be purchasing it from a dealer in my home state of California. I found it on the dealer web site with pictures, but I have not seen it in person because its an 8 hour drive. The unit is a bank repo and the salesman says its in like new condition and everything works. the only thing its missing is the tv sets. I made an offer of 23,950 that was accepted. I will be towing it with a 06 Dodge 2500 diesel crew cab and I have a 5 inch lift and 35in. tires.

    So my questions are:

    1. Does this sound like a fair price?
    2. Is this a quality RV?
    3. Should I have any concerns with my tow vehicle?
    4. I don't have a 5th hitch yet. What is a good one?
    5. Would air bags be recommended for the rear suspension of my truck?

    All of your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks Heath

    Heathb01, I don't know too much about rv's but I did some research on here and I think you might want to see what alot of the post on here are saying about Forest River Products. I am in no way saying anything good or bad about them because I have no experience with them, but there are many post on this forum about them. Just suggesting you do some research.
