We have five kids ages 14 down to 2, we cannot vacation in hotels we would need three rooms. We want to make memories with our family and this model let us do that....we thought. The look of the Sabre is awesome, the floorplan is perfect for us. It was much more money than we wanted to spend but felt it was an investment in our family. The roller coaster is so hard on us all. Camping is supposed to be peaceful and fun.....

They can't find a dealer that will take it. I heard they got a low ball offer that Sabre turned down. Who knows, they talk out of both sides of there face sometimes.

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.

But surely you understand that someone who just bought a new Sabre would be on pins and needles right now?

I know how *we* would feel if there was a thread like this about a new owner's 2014 8528WIKS, even though the only problem we had with our shakedown last weekend is a *very* slight leak at the water filter canister. I'm sure MM and MD's *major* problems didn't show up during their shake down trip.

And I'll say it again, since we learned this lesson well when we had the only real issue (electrical snafu that could have burned the V-Lite down);

A GREAT DEALER and an awesome relationship with that dealer is the most important asset an RV owner can have! They were absolutely fantastic and worked WELL with Flagstaff to correct that problem. Then the dealer installed a bedroom TV mount for us, (no labor charge and it was not pre-wired for it) while it was there.

YMMV

They did looked nice at the show in Chitown. Does seem like the batting average is slumping lately.

They are a beautiful camper. The new interior look is outstanding compared to the early 2014 model which we currently own. They are a big strike out in our eyes.

We have a meeting (again) with our dealer tomorrow. They have a unit on the lot that we are supposed to look at. It does not have the options that we want and forest river wants to modify that unit (retrofit) to give us. I am not sure that I believe this is a genuine offer since the other offers were apparently bogus. Our dealer does not want to buy our current unit and I am sure that FR is going to try to force them to take it with the same "incentives" they offered us....freebies and sparkle cannot compensate for a lemon.
