Crusader 335bhs or Sabre 34tbok-6?

We are planning to trade our travel trailer for a new fifth wheel and are struggling with the decision of a crusader 335 BHS or a sabre 34tbok-6 We don't want to go too big and we want space for everyone. How tall is the Sabre does anyone know?? No info on manufacturers website. The length is different everywhere we look too. Anyone with good info for us about these two campers, please let me know. Forgot to add we have a Chevrolet 3500HD 6.0liter gas engine to tow with. And do we need a slider hitch with a 6.5 foot box?

I vote the 36qbok !
looked at one at cheyenne camping center in walcott Iowa

youll get many answers about the slider.

I plainly vote yes !

height should be about 12' 6" but I will get an answer for sure.

Wouldn't consider either with the 6.0L engine. Would be OK if you were moving it from the dealer to a permanent site, but not for travel. Not even sure if the 6.0L is even rated for that much of a trailer.

That would definitely be a duramax / Allison combo.
I totally missed the 6.0

iowarvnewbie - you originally had 34qbok and then it looks like you changed to 34tbok. There is a 36QBOK-7 which is bigger than the 34TBOK-6. Since you updated your post to show the 34tbok, I changed your thread title to reflect that.

I think you really mean the smaller one since you made a mention of not wanting to go too big and it most closely matches the Crusader 355BHS.

f1100turbo - that means your vote still counts, just different camper. It's now the same as yours.

I'm partial to the Sabres, but it's largely because it's what I own. We didn't like the awning positioning on the matching camper from Primetime - it literally killed the whole camper for us. They even went as far as prototyping a u-shaped dinette just for us to prove it could be done. They just couldn't move the awning back and I felt it was too far forward to be usable.

btw, my 36qbok (again, bigger than the 34tbok) is 13' 3" with the second A/C.

One a/c is 13' 2" according to the factory.
No units at factory right now have second a/c installed.
