Wow this really stinks. For someone about to pull the trigger and order the same unit it makes you a little uneasy. Doug does your dealer not have a service department that could fix your issues. Or what type issues were you having that would require a trip to the factory?

My dealer has an outstanding service department or at least that's what I've been told by the couple guys I know that have bought from them.

Hope you get a favorable resolution to your issues very soon.

Sorry to hear it ! I hope they fix it for you. It probably got rushed through by hurrying employees and no one bothered to check it .... It is a shame

Camper is back from factory - worse shape than it left

They had it for over 2 months. It shouldn't have been rushed.

My dealer is the second closest Sabre dealer to my house, but I still bought on price alone. I didn't think of service at the time and it turns out, their service bays are too short to let a full height fifth wheel inside. Shame on me for not picking a better dealer. I was a newbie.

It went back to the factory because the rear driver's side bunkhouse slide was pausing on the way out. It progressively got worse and would get stuck unless I pushed on the back part of the slide to keep the front and back in line. Looking at the slide from underneath, something was gouging the bottom of the slide. It's my understanding that Sabre had moved away from the Shwintek slides back there (per reading on the forum and from a comment my dealer made).

I also had some paint lifting on a wheel skirt- it appeared that they painted over caulk. That appears to be fixed but the unit is so dirty because it was brought back while it was snowing, I have to really look.

it amazes me that is big as the RV community is and as much as we all share info, good and bad, that there is such poor workmanship at every level. From the factory to the dealer. Labor rates at the dealers are close to auto dealers, but their ability to fix anything is extremely poor.

I am going through the same thing right now with my 2013 320fqds that I bought in June of last year. It has been back to the factory for slide issues and multiple other things. It came back from the factory with sub-par work on some items with only a few items actually fixed. Between the factory and a dealer they have had it for over 4 of the 6 months that I have had it. So I know where you are coming from.

That sucks. Been contemplating fixing my brake pulsing issues myself even though it's a warranty issue just because the time and transportation costs would almost equal the cost of replacing all four drums and shoes. And I wouldn't waste 2 days to do it.
