It's official! Just have to inspect the unit and take in our trade. Deal will complete once this happens. We are super excited to welcome our new, and first 5er, the Sabre 36QBOK!

Anyone hit the scales with their rigs loaded ready to go hitched up? I DO NOT want to start a weight police discussion here I'm just curious if anyone has done so.

I have wanted to all season long, but I've either been in a rush getting out of town, or in a rush getting back home. When the camper is just here, it's generally not loaded for camping. The couple of times I've been out on the highway and had a chance, I was too intimidated with the trucks around to do it.

But, given the weight-sticker on the camper:


Our weight from the factory was 12,239. If I recall correctly, that's supposed to include the 2 propane tanks full as well as the battery. We generally run with close to a full freshwater tank (350 pounds) as well as some water in both black tanks (maybe 5 gallons each for another 70-90 pounds). Rarely we'll run with water in all 5 tanks, depending on our overnight stops and destination.

My guess is that we run close to 14,500. BUT- that's a wild estimate (or wishful or even pessimistic thinking) based on what we've added to the camper (not that I've ever weighed anything).

Speaking of tanks, does anyone know their locations? Especially the freshwater one?

Normally the fw tank is directly inline with the outside fill.

I haven't looked under the underbelly cover yet, BUT the drain for the fresh water tank is approximately where the left-side of the bush is in this picture:



Other than that - I can only tell you tanks by pull handles (starting from the front):
1) Gray #1 is below the heater
2) Black #1 is behind that a bit
3) Gray #2 is just behind the main living room slide
4) Gray #3 is just behind the bunkhouse slide
5) Black #2 is just behind that

(I generally get gray 3 and black 2 switched up, so I might have them backwards.)

Gray #1 is for the front bathroom's shower + sink.

Gray #2 is for the kitchen/galley.

Gray #3 is for the outside kitchen sink.

Black #1 is for the front bathroom toilet.

Black #2 is for the rear bathroom toilet and sink. (On my 2012, at least - I actually recommended Sabre plumb these up so that the sink goes to the gray, but I don't know if they made production changes to address my personal/specific feedback. )

p.s. my neighbors love me. The camper stays out front of the house on the road for weeks at a time. Just after the new year (after we got back from 2 weeks in Florida), the neighbor across the street came over and as tactfully as he could, asked if it would be staying for the winter or what. (It wasn't - just had business at work and my plumbing issue to deal with before winterizing it and taking it to the storage lot.)

That sounds pretty accurate. Here's a picture of the back-side of the water connections. The biggest hose towards the top is the fresh-water fill and makes a pretty straight shot down through the floor (gentle curves, of course).



A minor gripe - after seeing behind it, I don't entirely understand why it had to be so high. I think they could have lowered it (making putting water in from a jug easier) and still had a gentle curve.
