2016 sabre lite

First unit I've seen hit the dealers.

Still calling it a Palomino.

July they stopped production and tooled up to bring out a whole new Sabre line up.
No more silhouette.

I was told they'd be under forest river not palomino.
You can still get a "old palomino sabre" and still be a 16 if it's on the lot.

Basically they've stopped making what you have and redesigned them.

Sabre silhouette is now "sabre lite"

No more aluminum roof trusses now there wood.

They saved the popular floor plans and scraped the rest.

Thanks for the Sabre info. Always exciting to see new stuff, however we are not fans of the dark (almost black) front cap. Camping should be happy times and three shades of gray is depressing. Perhaps a brightly colored rainbow design....

The Palomino brand has added a new Columbus. Columbus Compass or Columbus C as some dealers have called it. Lower grade finishes, different graphics. A less expensive price point with limited floorplans, kind of replacing the Sabre. The plane was also taken over by Rockwood/Flagstaff management and QC team to get things back up yo snuff s we were told.

Asquard invited me on the Factory tour. The 26H Sabre was at the Toronto RV show, flaws and all! A Antena no one under 7 ft can reach to raise or lower. I thought they might put a jack in instead.

Purchased our Sabre in Mayfield, KY Feb '14. Didn't go there looking for a camper, was just helping a friend pick up his Columbus.

Country roads in Lexington NC used to be a big sabre dealer. I don't see any on their website now. Bill Plemmons rv in Raleigh and in Winston Salem also quit carrying them. I believe bumgarner rv in Lenoir NC still carries the line.
