My wife and I bought a sabre silhouette 290refd to years ago this April, andhave not had a single quality issue with it. Absolutely love it. Kinda wish we would have went with a little bit larger floorplan, but was too close weight wise for my tow vehicle.

I will say in the end things did turn out right. My only complaint is, Sabre should not treat there buyers the way they do. It should not take months and months for your voice to be heard and your major problems to be fixed. I know there are many customers out there that have not had any major problems, you better thank your lucky stars because if you do, be ready to argue and fight with getting it fixed. I am just stating my opinion from what I have been through. I hope they get better with helping the owners that purchase these units because we really like the looks of this unit, it's one of the best looking units out there In this price range

We are one of those owners that are suffering from poor quality problems of a 2009 28RETS Sabre Fifth Wheel purchased new in 2009.

About a year ago, I posted on this website the question, "Why is the Floor Sinking"? After several email correspondence with a Sabre Sam, NO HELP THERE, I purchased 2 screw jacks and a 4 x 4, placed them under the floor of the dining slide, gradually increased pressure over a few weeks and forced the floor back to the original height. Now we feel comfortable eating at the dining table and stepping on the floor again without fear of breaking it or worst, falling through. I have not removed the support and when asked by other RV'ers, why the support, I explain with a BUYER BE AWARE!

Now the More; Yesterday while washing the RV, I noticed some of the plywood decking on the roof has begun to "BOW-UP, WARP, HEAVE, under the rubber roof material along the edge about 6" inward and it doesn't look good in other areas. The rubber material is showing wrinkles and bubbles in areas. Like the floor, in hopes that what goes up will go down, I placed concrete blocks on the worse areas, now I'll wait to see if I need to add more weight. What's Next?

Yes, we are experiencing many Poor Quality of Material Problems, Issues, that could cost as much to repair, due to extremely High labor cost of over $100 an hour, as a new RV would cost. No more Sabre Fifth Wheels or Forest River products for us. Oh did I mention the vinyl on the face of the cabinets has begun to bubble?

I should add, but doesn't help, we have put over 25000 miles of travel on this Sabre RV, with minor problems, but these issues are a result of Poor Quality Products used in construction and not related to travel.

Oh, something else, I had to replace those Chinese tires after 10,000 miles due to bubbles under the tread and not being balanced from factory. This is no way to get and hold your customers. I would Happily have paid a few dollars more, THEN, in exchange for fewer headaches TODAY plus a Bad Experience with Sabre/Palomino. And one more thing, check your hot water heater for rust on the outside around the electric switch, ours has begun to corrode. Naval Jelly time!

Your "NO HELP THERE" implies that I did nothing with your correspondence. I provided all your comments and PMs to the Sabre warranty department. Sabre/Forest River may have chosen to not provide any assistance. Please don't imply that I did nothing.

Don't gloss over "The Rest of The Story"......

The Dealer took his Sub Par unit back and will end up selling it to someone who may not know about all of its issue and will be stuck with a the sub par unit.


My unit is still under warranty and I have not been satisfied with the product or the service that I have been getting. I just got off of the phone with a local Dealer that has done work for me in the past. I am taking it there in the morning and I am paying them to fix some issues and will ask for advice on some others.

The 'no help there', statement proved true, Sam. You passed it on and from there the help stopped. It seems that 'Warranty' chose not to provide any assistance. Thank-you for passing the information on, you did your best, it just did not help this person, in the future I am sure that it may.

You don't even have a sabre so what dog do you have in this fight?

I believe if the the poster that commented wants to hash it out with sam let him.

Otherwise worry about your own issues.

Brother les, is there some reason you feel compelled to "stir the pot" on these sabre issues? You made a choice to get a salem, so you dont have a dog in this fight.
Your input on these issues do nothing to help ANYONE on here. Why don't you try to be a positive influence on others instead of trying to bring more negativity?
