As of right now, we have reason to be hopeful. We are in tentative agreement on a resolution and have just one issue that is a sticking point. At this point, however, we have nothing in writing and that makes me very nervous. The negotiations between the dealer and the factory and the negotiations between us and our dealer and us and the factory are all a big jumble. If we are all on the same page that I understand us to be on (cautiously choosing words here) then we will be pleased and have the matter settled in a few weeks.

As for common elements among units....we have an original purchase date of late April 2013 so I am guessing a late March early April manufacture date. Not sure if spring fever had the line folks in a tizzy or what...but they were not focused on the build for sure. Also, the unit was bought off the lot.

We walked through a unit today that I would swear was made by a completely different team than ours - but it was a later build and likely most of the same people. Those folks on here so loyal to the Sabre brand have obviously been seeing a level of attention and care in their units that did not exist in ours. I finally saw it today.

I will keep everyone posted.

I am very curious about common elements too - so any others with issues please post the details (manufacture date, ordered or lot bought, and anything else you think may be a clue).

We will know Monday for sure ( I hope ) what is exactly going to happen. We are now 4 months into this mess and maybe just maybe we will have final answer that someone will stand true with.

Wow! I just notice this thread has over 12,000 veiws. And it hasnt even been up a month. I wonder if this is some kinda record.
Best of luck Browns!!! Were pulling for you!
Sabre has, I'm sure seen some PR from this, just waiting for the favorable swing that were all hoping for, and would work very good in thier favor too!

This is too sad, when a huge corporation is unwilling to fix their mistake at their cost, but need to get the unfortunate owner of the unit and the unfortunate owner of the dealership to compromise and possibly take financial hits. And to make it worse worse, trying to have a defective unit later dumped on an unaware buyer who will think he/she is getting a great deal. Just sad ....

Forest River, you produced this junk, you fix it, at your own cost ! Doing the right thing will only make you look better in everyone's eyes ...This is 2014 ... should I say more ?

I have to agree .... They have to realize how bad this makes them look and go into damage control mode, i.e. Bending backwards to please the owners. Give them a same model perfect trailer with either a lot more options then they purchased, or decrease their total borrowing costs by 4 months plus %10 off their purchase price or something. Personally, if I was going to buy a 5'th wheel, I would never buy a Sabre after this story, unless they turn things around and prove that they are trustworthy.
