Congrats! And we all know you won't be driving past the dealer everyday just to glance at it until you pick it up and haul it to the CG.

Got into the basement today and was able to get some better pics of the Central Vac as well as the location of the EMS unit.

Here is a front view of the Central Vac


Rather than the cover and having the vac behind the wall, they moved the vac forward a little, cut a circular hole through the single ply, and added a black ring around the edge. The ring around the outside does not look like something that came with the vac, but something that was added to help address thoughts on ways to improve appearance. If you look close, you can see the scoring here that shows the inner hole was cut out (not molded).



Here is where the EMS unit is mounted. It sits between the central vac and the water pump. The remote display is connected using a cord similar to phone line, but I believe the pairs are twisted/crimped differently.

4 weeks into the wait for our new Sabre 36QBOK. Kids are excited for their own room!!! We are too. :-). This is our first 5th wheel, nervous about the size but with a family of 5 we needed it.

I know everyday seems like 'forever', when you have something like this on order. We have the same coach and just made our first reservation for April vacation for our maiden trip. The size IS somewhat overwhelming at first. I know for me, once I got it home and stepped backed a bit, I thought to myself, What did I just get myself into? They don't look all that big when there in a lot all parked next to each other, but get it home by itself and WOW, it's huge. You'll be fine, just be mindful of the rearward swing.

Agree with what 5verdriver just said. It does seem like everyday is forever, but than one day you will get that call and it becomes yours. Well worth the wait. It will be a big change for you given that this is your first fifth wheel, but when you are camping with a family of 5 you will really enjoy all of that space.

On another note, I finally got around this afternoon to put my wide angle lens on my camera and take a few shots of mine that weren't taken from a phone. Rather than post up individual photos, here is a link to my gallery on Photobucket.

Now I'm really excited!! Thanks for sharing the pictures. Kind of scary that you needed a wide angle lens :-0. My husband has been researching the hitches. We have a Ford F350 crew cab with 6ft bed. He is looking at the hitches that glide. Any suggestions??

Given your bed length you'll need a slider hitch. I strongly recommend something like the Pullrite Superglide 16k or 18k that'll provide another 14" of clearance automatically as you navigate turns. It's worth the extra money in my opinion.

The 18k is the hitch that my husband has been looking at. Thanks for the advice.

Any suggestion on rail type? DH is trying to decide whether to buy the type that the rails are either fully removable or industry standard rails which means the bed will always have 2 bumps on floor. He is concerned about how difficult is it to remove rails.
