I don't have those.
Besides the cost, I've heard of too many self leveler issues on lipert systems. It sounds nice but would be a real pain when it didnt work.
Plus they only offer a 4 point system, seem like the 36 should/would really need a 6 point.
I plan on adding a couple more stab jacks mid ship to help

We were looking at the Columbus 385bh but the bunkhouse is awful and some of the comments here make me think the Sabre is a better choice for us.
We also like it, and have really never even used the tables. I don't know why it doesn't show up as an option online, or in the brochures I've seen. I'm with you on having to pass on the Columbus. What By the time you're done, you'll probably have all the options. The outside kitchen was a must for us, and Sabre had the best setup, even though there's no grill. That was an easy fix, just bought 2 T-fittings, a 6' length of gas pipe, and extended the gas line to the other end of the slide, and added 2 more quick connects. Now I can have the Weber Q200 and my smoker after setting them up for quick connects.

We love our automatic leveling system. Its so easy, you back in unhook from your truck and pull out of the way and then hit the autolevel button and walk away and start hooking up your sewer hoses, water hoses, etc.... It also makes the trailer a lot more stable with where the jacks are placed compared to my other buddies that have the electric jacks at the very back of the trailer. All in all it some of the best money I spent on my Sabre 36QBOK-7.

I'd love to save my pennies and have the Bigfoot leveling system installed. Even with our usage, I can't imagine spending the $4-6k on it.

The system from Sabre factory was an $1,800 add on.

If it had been an option when I bought, I likely would have opted for it.

The Lippert LevelUp (is that its name?) is cheaper than the Bigfoot system. But, if I'm adding it later- I'd go whole hog.

I'm really excited that Sabre added this as an option- now I know the frame can handle it! That was one of my worries early on when I thought about it.

Going seasonal we didnt think the self leveling would be worth it. The cost would pay our lot rent for about a year and a half (actually about 14 months).

If you had to setup alot and it worked well, it would be a big bonus.
