I thought I had heard that the newer campers had this moved to the stairwell wall - hence the removing of this vent.

When I pull the cover on the bottom of the camper in the coming months to install my black tank flush for the 2nd black tank, I'll see if I can tell any better.
Thanks for the good follow up. The camper online that my pic came from does have the power center under the refrigerator, but there's a grille just to the right of it for air. Nevertheless, I have a black tank flush kit waiting to be installed as well, so during that install, I will take care of heat to the half bath. I've just gotta get'er home!

I've been thinking, once I start posting mods, would the fellow 36QBOKers prefer posting them here, or is there/should we start a 36QBOK Mods thread in the mods section???

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the power center under the fridge to remember if there's a grill down there or not and sadly, the camper lives in storage, so I can't even hop on over to it.

My opinion for the mods - I'd prefer separate threads (extra points if you have 36QBOK in the subject line). I find it easier to find stuff later - though, this one-thread thing is nice for following along!

My preference would be a mods thread in mods. I will be doing my first one this weekend hopefully. Installing a Fan-tastic fan 6600r/417 in the 1/2 bath with a new power switch located with the one for the lights. I do have a question have you or anyone else found Dicor that matches the roof? I have the cocoa colored exterior with the tan'ish roof. I know they make it as the current vent is sealed with it.

]I have a question about the location of the central vac cannister/bag access. The access to mine is about three inches behind the basement wall, behind a plastic panel secured with one screw. In other fiver's, most I have seen are flush with the wall and more easily accessible. Where is it in your QBOK?

Mine is exactly as you describe and show in the picture.

Add 15" for the 2nd A/C and and inch or three for the arch in the roof and the total is 13'6". My dry weight ended up at 12,349lbs. Due to a misunderstanding with our order it came with the wide lower bunk vs. the couch with airbed. The sales manager gave us a cash credit and we were satisfied as we had wondered if the bunk would suit us better than the couch anyway. The towing experience has been better than expected. the coach certainly tracks better and is more stable when dealing with the trucks on the interstate and my fuel mileage ended up about the same. I have had a little "chucking" back and forth but nothing severe. In fact the ride is smoother at higher speeds. When I pulled off of the dealers lot it was dark, 19 degrees and snowing. A few miles down the road the DW and kids are ready to stop for dinner since our lunch had consisted of complimentary hot dogs from the dealership. So Cracker Barrel it is, but wait..how do I nav and park this beast?? The DW instructs me to bypass the service road to the CB and turn around in the adjacent neighborhood for a better approach...I make the smart comment.."hope it's not a dead end"..well..as luck has it..yes...a dead end...so in the freezing blowing snow the DW gets out and directs me to back into a residential driveway and turn around...after a few beads of sweat and anxious moments we nav the turn and make it back to the CB for dinner prior to the long trip back home...enough for now..I will post more later about my PDI and further inspection at home.
Congrats and looking forward to all you have to say!!!! Did you see our unit while you were up there We are picking up end of March so we are anxious to hear of your experience, and the quality of the hot dogs

Glad you made it home ok and all is well.

So we are ready to pull the trigger on one of these. Can anyone give some advice on purchase pricing?

Scoffman;

We purchased our 2012 QBOK last October and paid a tic over 38k before tax. Can't really speak to a 2013 model though. Hope that helps. I basically brought it home and winterized it, so I really can't give any pro's or con's yet, however, most everyone who has one speaks highly of the QBOK. Good luck, and I'm sure you won't disappointed.

Go to a local dealer, pick out options you want and have them quote you with their build sheet, or pick one off the lot and get the quote. Submit that to several online wholesale dealers including RV Wholesalers. This will give you leverage to buy local first and if that doesn't work out you can buy from the Wholesale dealers and have your unit delivered to you.

Thanks....My PDI left something to be desired. The tech said he usually did part of the PDI and another tech did the rest but he was not there that day and the guy we had could not answer some questions They did tape the process and gave us a flashdrive for reference. It was very cold and they did bring the unit inside for the PDI. We inspected thoroughly after we got the unit home and did find a few small items, as expected, and a couple we considered significant. There were two screws in the table leg receptical that were driven in crooked and the angle of the screw was grooving the underbelly of the living slide enough to expose the wood. I removed the screws to elimnate the friction. There also was a dime size hole in the roof fabric near the corner of the door side and front cap. Looks like a puncture of some kind and was not sealed with the roofing goo.(Duct tape doing the job for now) I sent the pics to Sabre Sam, who responded immediately, and I soon received a call from the factory. They have asked me to return the unit to the dealer and they will transport it back to the factory to replace the slide floor and seal the roof. Sabre Sam was very apologetic and my hat is off to him for his attention to customer service and a quality product. We LOVE the unit and have confidence in the product mainly due to Sam's dedication. In my opinion this should have been caught at the factory and at the dealer prior to my PDI. All it took was a walk/crawl on the roof (there were footprints already up there so someone took a look) and a crawl under the unit with the slide extended.
I did look to see if your unit was there and did see another QBOK on the service lot where they sit prior to delivery. Since it was sooo cold and snowy I did not "snoop" as I was ready to begin our PDI. I will look when I'm there again on Sat.


I know you said you are taking delivery 3/22 and leaving for a long trip to Destin on 3/23. I reccomend you look it over prior to 3/22 in case you need any attention before getting too far from home.

Oh yeah... as far as the hot dogs go.....roller food...get there early. They do keep the buns in a warmer and the soda dispenser is good
