Seriously? They're trying to get your dealer to buy that POS back so they can pass it off to some unfortunate, unknowing customer again?

Regarding losing money, what do they think you're doing? You're still paying notes (if you didn't pay cash) and insurance on that POS!

I'ma stop "rat cheer" before I let Weezer off the chain. T'won't be purty.

X2!! I feel for your situation and read your thread every time it's updated. It sucks, but my camper has been awesome and the Sabre would be on the top of my list if and when I purchase again.

That is exactly what they are going to do. I do feel sorry if someone else gets this unit. The poor soles won't know what hit them. They will not know what hit when it falls apart and no warranty

I guess if you have a good unit than they are great from what I hear. Just don't get a bad unit !!!!!!!

Albeit I dont believe anyone on this forum hasn't had some kind of issue's in one way or another including all brands within forest river, some minor some major.

I dont think there's any one single manufacturer in the rv business out there that hasn't had units with this kind of major malfunction.

Heads up chin high.

That tells me this unit IS NOT repairable. Am I wrong?

Your story is the stuff of RV owners' nightmares.

The lemon law needs to be adapted to cover RVs other than motor homes. People sometimes invest their life savings in preparation for retirement, only to see it go up in smoke with no clear laws to support them. Additionally the buyer struggles to find an attorney that is willing to take on the HUGE legal teams that are at the manufacturers' disposal.

dang it, no I won't if I don't hush.

I totally agree with you, if you purchase a camper and you think something isn't going to go wrong than you have another coming. It's all about how it is handled if you have a big problem and I can tell you this case has been handled awful. I hope you understand that I like the camper or I would have bought it but there service if you have a big problem sucks.

I am glad that the vast majority of Sabres are working well, and we have felt all along that we just got a bad unit. The only thing we wanted from the get-go was a quality unit. When we were assured at the factory that the issues were resolved we took them at their word. It has not been the case. I'm by no means looking for something beyond what I have paid for or was promised.

As for all manufacturers having problems, I agree totally. That is why there is a PDI facility and entire QC division. Problems are to be expected, but solutions should be too.

You would think that if they are willing to replace it. I have no idea why they want a dealer to take it on trade if it's junk. I guess if they can pawn it off on some poor sole with no warranty then they win, heck I don't know there doing, just assuming is all I am doing.
