Well, I just got cc'd in an email from Gary to my dealer. They want the sabre to come to the factory after we are done using it this season... Wish I lived closer as I don't like the idea of hooking it up behind a transport hauler, but oh well. I'll keep updates posted.

Well I have got at least 3000 miles on mine and set up on every kind of terrane. I have the same issues as others on here as well as a few more. Having forfeited the second year warranty by getting caught up in using it the first month I passed the 30 day dead line to add it. With the troubles we are having that was a very bad move on my part. I have till November to shake my issues out. I agree with others on here that it's less stressful to fix the little thing and let the dealer do the costly repairs. But when they start to have it longer than I it's time to bark loud. I have had some type of trailer or 5th wheel for the last 23 years. Point to be made is the information shared on this forum is in lighting and helpful to others. If this was around when I owned my Dutchman I could of for sure bent some ears. Last said is if sabre is reading these post they can sure find there weak spots and work from there on QC. Hint hint.........


Best of luck to all having issues!!

I got my Camper back this week from the factory. I plan to take it out this weekend on a trip. So far it appears they have fixed all my issues. One thing I did notice is my camper lost weight at the factory. The yellow sticker on the outside did read 12,400lbs after a trip to the factory it now reads 12,223. I guess they put it on a diet there or it was homesick and didn't eat...

They also removed the yellow sticker inside my main door that had the weight info on it. It now just says VOID many times. I guess I'm going to have to call Gary since my dealer want respond to my emails about why the sticker is missing.

I wonder if they re-weighed it or something? That's really weird.

I never did ask Gary where they weigh them at. I don't recall seeing that in my factory tour.

Good to hear. Very timely as mine will be heading to the factory in the next week or two. How long total did they keep it?

Maybe some of the insulation got shaved down during the repair process!
