just purchased used Palomino Sabre

I am a new member on here. My wife and I love camping and have been camping about 15 years. We had a 1999 Forest River Salem 27BH. It was a great unit with no problems, but just time to upgrade and wanted a little more room. So we just purchased a used 2010 Palomino Sabre Silouette 250RLBD Fifth Wheel. It is in excellent condition (almost looks brand new). The previous owner garaged it. We were impressed with the quality of the construction compared to other brands in our price range. However, we noticed that some of the windows will not lock. It seems as though the plastic track is worn out and loose. Just looking to see if anyone else has had this problem and any possible solutions. We are excited for our new camper and now are a little nervous due to things possibly being made cheaper than our old 1999 Salem.
Thanks for any advice.

Hi and welcome. If you go to this thread, Sabre Sam should be able to answer your questions. He has been very helpful to me.

X2 and welcome, I'm sure your going to love your Sabre. I'used you may find a couple of minor things the previous owners didn't fix. Good luck.

Congrats on your new-to-you Palomino Sabre Silouette! There's lots of helpful information here on the forums but please do feel free to ask questions too.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
