Question for Sabre 36QBOK-7 Owners

I just ordered a 2014 Sabre 36QBOK-7. It hasn't arrived yet but my wife and I are looking around and things we may need for our new trailer.

We have lots of stuff from our previous Travel Trailer but one question I have is about the bunks.

Can someone tell me what size sheets and bedding they bought for the bunks???

We didn't buy anything- we have used both twin and full size sheets. For the full- I just tuck the extra under the back side of the bunk (somehow bed making is my job?!).

We do the same thing with the bedding. We just fold the extra under the mattress. I have looked at custom sheet sets and they can get expensive. My kids always sleep in there sleeping bags, I was told it's not camping if you don't have sleeping bags. I finally got one up on you Doug, I am in charge of everything else accept bedding. Lol

We looked at all sorts of campers including those with the loft beds. My daughter nixed that idea when we told her we wouldn't make beds up there and she'd have to sleep in a sleeping bag. Needless to say, we don't camp.

I only things that we have purchased that we didn't have from our other camper is, we did put shelf liner in all the cabinets, put TVs in the master and bunk area, max air vent covers in the smoke color and a washer/dryer combo.

Same thing here with our 34tbok. We have the bifold couch in the bunkhouse so we put a foam topper on there and leave made on there as our smallest camper still has an occasional afternoon nap.

The only thing I wish that room had was a roof vent as it can get a little stuffy back there if you can't get any airflow from the side windows. On that note, I bought a sheet of black corrugated plastic and cut pieces to cover the windows back there as our kids won't go to sleep unless it's dark. This far north in the summer means dark isn't until almost 11pm which really cuts into the rum-cola time if you are still dealing with kids!!

You might want to invest in closet bars for your outdoor kitchen fridge because if you keep your bevies in there during transport, you will have to do some quick catching when you open the OK door. Camco makes a set designed for fridges.

You are going to love your Sabre.

We just stuff our table cloth cover into the fridge when we travel. It fills the extra space and keeps things in place. I also put a child lock on it as I found it would open with travel periodically.

I put a child lock on too. I tried the towel trick but still ended up with foamy beer on the ground. Not sure what the cost would be but it sure would be nice if a 3 or 2 way RV fridge could be installed there.

Another question. What's the distance between the two sewer connections?

The measurement I got on mine is 17' drain to drain. Sorry it took so long to get you a answer.
