As an example I recall when we were in shopping mode, seeing lots of complaints about the Audio-dvd player. We spent quite a bit of time "testing" the player on our Sabre at pick-up...No problems then or since.

I've actually heard of less problems with sabres than many of the other makes and lines out there.
As probably stated before everything is hoing to have a problem sometime, its if, when and how the service issue is handled, from the dealers to the manufacturer that make the difference.
While many on here have lacked good dealer service, we are seeing that the manufacturer IS stepping up to take care of the issues- even if it is not always in the desired time frame.
I was a former Palomino owner and hopefully a soon-to-be Sabre owner, and am fortunate to have a great dealer, from past experiances and look for the same in the future.
I wish everybody the best on the resolution to thier Sabres issues, as I believe they are one of the better mid-level lines!

oops. forgot to check mark that stupid box again!

I think the dealer has ALOT to do with how things get handled regardless of the manufacturer.

Our Sabre is a little over 2 years old and has been camped in probably 200 nights. We are very satisfied and haven't had any major issues that could be blamed on the manufacturer. When we were purchasing the trailer we looked at many. We felt that Sabre gave us the biggest value for our money. We knew going in that it wouldn't have all the quality features that the higher end coaches have but were perfectly happy to be camping in comfort.

And that's not just on campers either! But does seem a bit more of an issue as the network is nothing like the automotive world.

Same here...
I will have to say that we bought our 2012 34RLQS a little over a year ago and have spent more than 60 days in it and over 10,000 miles and love it. There were only a few minor issues that I took care of myself other than the circuit board in the furnace which was fixed under warranty by a local dealer. We have really enjoyed ours and are leaving for Silverton, Co. in mid April to spend the summer in it.

We've had some issue's but nothing detrimental.
Through the issue's sabre and our dealer have been very diligent on resolving them fast and to our satisfaction!
I have absolutely nothing bad to report from our sabre experience.

We have a 2013 Sabre 34tbok and are about to start our 3rd season with it. We absolutely love it and have experienced no major issues at all. A couple of very small issues that our dealer resolved with no problems.

Truthfully, we had 1 major issue and that was a slide out that was getting stuck. It took 10 months, 50 nights of use and 5,000 miles of towing to show up. We had a small list of small things that our dealer, had they been more competent, could have handled. Our factory return experience started out rocky, went to horrifying and is now going extremely great.

The Sabre brand is growing by leaps and bounds; coupled with turnover at the factory and some management folks that are no longer there- things happened and they're getting better. Knowing what I know now- I would have no issue buying another Sabre.

Good deal!!! I have been very happy with Palamino, and look forward to continue the relationship in the future!
( Ps. I talked with my dealer today about options and special order items- just need to pick out a color and nail down a price on the 36)
