Umm...I normally don't check forums but striking out with some 1st hand intel on the Palomino Sabre 36 QS2B (I think I have that right). It's the one with two bedrooms, and it appeals to our needs, so wondering a couple of things.

Sabre question.....does anyone have one of these units yet, and if so, how do they like it? Secondly, is Sabre a decent brand re: quality, durability, etc? Lastly, if anyone has Sabres, do dealers take care of you?

Measured my trailer while hooked up tonight when pulling in. I used a 4' level off of the front ac.
I came in at 13' 5 1/2". That was with 8 1/2" of clearance between the bed and trailer, and with my "35' " tires on. I'm gonna drop my hitch or raise my pin to get it a little lower, I think, might not get around to it before I move it to a seasonal site next weekend!

We have the 36qbok 2 bedrooms 1 1/2 bath....we love ours. Quality seems ok the cloth covers on the dinning area wrap around did warp pretty easily from setting on the seats...but I think they all do...I woukd give it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

Can any 36qbok owners tell me the width for the couch opening in the main living room slide? Specifically the wall to the end of u-dinette. I was told it was 60inches exactly. I would like to replace the jack knife sofa on a unit we are buying with a lazy boy reclin away. The lazy boy is 57 inches wide.

Thanks!

Bill

Pirate, you have more space because the booth dinette is smaller than the u-shaped dinette.

Stoker,
Welcome to the forum. We don't have the model you're interested in but I can address your 2nd & 3rd question. Yes, IMHO Sabre is a quality built unit. We're on our 3rd season with ours and are very happy with the durability and build quality. We're on a seasonal site and we're there every weekend from mid April thru mid October so our Sabre has had alot of use. Our dealer was great in handling a couple real small issues we did have, 1) replaced galley kitchen faucet handle due to set screw being stripped (actually ordered us a complete faucet assembly), 2) replaced day/night shade in hallway after string broke, 3) replaced exterior door lock.

This is a brand new model I've not heard of anyone on here having one.

That being said WE LOVE OUR SABRE!

Agreed.

That said, my dealer sucked but Sabre warranty ROCKS. When I talked to the warranty rep, they said that the 2 bedroom model was incredibly popular.

In case you're interested in how Sabres are built, I have a whole set of factory tour pictures:
