I literally scoured the internet looking at everyone's offering of the floorplan that I could. I've seen or been in quite a few (Crusader, Avalanche, Sandpiper, Columbus, Open Range, Durango, Laredo, and I'm sure there are some I didn't name) and at the end of the day, we decided on the Sabre. Durango and Crusader were 2 that we really looked at hard, and actually got to see at the show last month, and we have no regrets on choosing Sabre over them. Open Range doesn't have a plumbed outside kitchen sink, and there was something else about them, as well as hearing several service guys say to stay away from them. The guy that drove from Florida to buy my Outback even told me that he was told to stay away from Open Range. Columbus was a contender, but the mattress you just throw on the floor in the bunkhouse was not an option for us. I could go on and on from manufacturer to manufacturer on why they didn't work for us, but in the end it's about what works for you. A lot of the Forest River products come close, but then they either don't have the full sized shower, or the bunkhouse layout or options isn't right, or the outside kitchen is incomplete. The only thing I saw us sacrificing in the Sabre, was a leveling system (not a must have), a grill with the outside kitchen (easy to fix), and the option for the 12 cubic foot refrigerator (not an option on most other lines either). Fit an finish, I think the Sabre is up to par, and the super lounge and platinum edition options are great options. The outside kitchen is a must for us, and you really can't call it a kitchen if it's missing the stove or sink, or the refrigerator is too small. Good luck deciding, but I think the Sabre is worthy of a good look.
