I'm on the facebook page and you can get lots of ideas and opinions. Great page

We have a 2014 320 RS and put simply we love it.
We picked ours up from the dealer in Aug 2013 and have already camped 49 days and made separate trips from Alabama to Texas, Tennesee, Geogia, Florida and North Carolina.
The only problems were 1. TV cable connections and improper routing that was fixed by the dealer before we left the lot. 2. One forward jack shear pin broke and would not operate, we contacted Lippert direct and recieve a new jack in 2 days and installed in less than 30 minutes. 3. 2/3s of the LED light stip under the awing has stopped working - I still have not attempted to contact Dometic for a replacement (just procrastinating)
This is our 3rd new rv and even though they were well made, we had many more problems on the others by far than this. Our dealer was excellant in every regard compared to previous ones.

Bottom line...go for it and you won't be sorry!
When you say roof antenna was missing, is it a crank up type?

We have a early 2013 320RS and love it. We have had only minor issues. I don't think you can find a better rv with all the amenities in this camper unless you pay double the price. We have a Columbus rv group on Facebook with 500 members. That says a lot for Columbus. Check it out.

I think the missing roof antenna is the one for the basement radio. It will sometimes loosen during transport/towing and sometimes be found lodged under the rear AC unit. A single drop of Blue Loktite at the very base of the antenna will stop this from happening. Just don't get it over all the threads as that will attenuate the radio reception signal.

Have had ours since May 7 2013. Have pulled about 4000 miles since. Minor details mostly, Sofa frame broke at back within 2 weeks, drawer supports at back were hung by one screw, made new supports that rest on floor so drawer does not fall down Have been in Al and now Fl since Nov, So far it is working out quite well. You will enjoy!!

Quality of the workmanship, fit & finish, any major issues that we should watch for?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Did you make 100%?
Just was wondering if you made a purchase?

Sabre owners united!

We're having trouble finding dust bags for the central vac in our 320RS. It uses a Eureka bag model OX. Has anyone found an outlet for them? Thanks, Bear

Eureka, Amazon and some Sears stores. Order online! If you find a brick and motor vacuum repair store, I am sure they could get the bags for you. Look in the back of the manual for your vacuum. It has replacement bag order info in it.
