Intro and looking to get a new Sabre

Hi,

I am not new to Rv'ing, currently on our second 5th wheel trailer. My DW and I are looking to upgrade this year to a bunkhouse model to grow with our expanding family. Thought I would join this forum to get some advice and discuss with Forest River owners on how their purchases went and gather some of your gained knowledge.

As we stand today, we have short listed our search to Sabre 36QBOK, or a Blue Ridge (Forgot Model #), and an Open Range 399BHS.

Thanks!

The Sabre 36QBOK is the best because it's what I have.

Actually- look at the showers. The Sabre's is huge! As well, for us- a u-shaped dinette was a requirement, I couldn't find that on many other manufacturers in bunkhouse models. Same with the outside kitchen- the Sabre was just the perfect storm for what we wanted.

Anyway- didn't mean to try and sway ya!

:welcome:

No matter what sabre you buy you'll love it!
We have the 32bhok-6 and love it for function.
We only have 2 children.... teenagers left at home so we decided on the bunk house .
If there's any questions you have let us know!
You really want a sabre!

Sabre model is a great value for the price...you won't be disappointed!
Get the large walk in shower model and you'll never go back to the smaller showers!

Yes true the corner shower is great!

The outside kitchen we could never do without now that we have it!

And if there's ever a problem or issue we are very fortunate to have a factory rep SABRESAM on this forum whom answers questions and helps all of us owners when in need!
SABRESAM being a great presence on this forum will lead me to buy future sabres!

Not a corner shower- ours has a almost full-size shower!

That's only 1/2 of it!

And yes- I only wish all brands were fortunate enough to have their own SabreSam! He's super duper!

Not to knock on the Sabre fans but you should also check out the Prime Time Crusaders (another Forest River brand) Like the Sabres there is alot of value for the dollar. They have 4 different bunkhouse models.

Prime Time Manufacturing, Manufacturers of travel trailers and fifth wheels

While we don't have SabreSam we do have RVGuy LOL
