We do have X chocks. We are going to find out what what the manufacturer recommends and if they do, where to put them. One other thing I forgot to mention, (I just got out of the shower), the shower head is terrible. We ordered the new one after I got out of the shower for the first time. It will be at the house when we get home.
Since I'm talking about the bathroom..I probably should have ordered it without the toothbrush holder, soap dish and towel ring. We will be removing these and putting in a shelf. Our toothbrushes are too big for the hold and we use liquid soap, and Kleeenex hand towels. Also, we need to possibly move the towel rack since the towel sits right against the toilet. And add another towel rack. Then the bathroom will be perfect.

Let us know what they recommend for further stabilizing the Sabre as I and others would be interested

As for the storage, I still have plenty that I haven't even touched yet..lol.

We have a few minor issues, a nick in the lineoleum and on the foot of the couch and the door doesn't close well on the microwave. But we bought from Dolney's and I saw here they have great service. We'll handle that stuff when we get home.

The only other thing is the movement of the camper. We feel everything. We are level and on a cement pad. We are going to look into slide jacks to see if that helps.

Other than that, we can't believe what a great trailer this is. We are so comfortable inside, we don't feel the need to go somewhere all the time.

They don't recommend slide jacks just an fyi

Shower Head.

We also replaced the shower head in our 32 RCTS with a new one (from Midland RV) and also added a stainless steel hose which makes use much easier.

Poppy127,

It seems we have much in common: both in Michigan, both have the same Sabre model purchased from the same dealer. Just curious..where do you camp?

We mostly stay in-state as we are both still working and usually at state parks. As you probably know, MI has so many great SP's that we try to camp at at least one new one each year. But also have our favorites, Like Ludington and Traverse City. We inlcude Bay City SP on our favorites list because it is a nice park and only 30 min away....In fact will be there this weekend. We need to take the camper back to Dolney for some quick warranty work so we figured we will just stay in the neigborhood for the wekend. Great loc for a quick getaway.

Enjoy your 32 RCTS.

We also love SP's. And we are about 2 miles from Bay City SP. It is possible we actually looked at your camper before ordering ours. Brandon mentioned two guys came in, one ordered his camper and the other one took the one on the lot.

We love Interlochen State Park but haven't been to Traverse City. We'll try that next year. Next weekend we are thinking about Caseville. Let's hope the weather keeps up.

Kate
