Getting ready to order

As many of you know, our less than two year old Tbok was totaled this winter in an ice related accident. We are getting ready to order the replacement and I wanted to look for any advice on what others wished they had gotten or not gotten. We are doing another TBOK with;
All the normal stuff and dual pane windows, central vacuum, fireplace, four point auto leveling, 2nd AC. Leather furniture in place of the regular fabric.
What else am I missing.

Hope to get it ordered soon and pick it up in April.

Sounds very well decked out. Have you considered:
JT Strongarms?
Beauflor® Linoleum, Plank Wood Pattern w/7 Year Cold-Crack Warranty?
30″ Residential Convection Microwave? If it were available when we ordered ours I would've added this for sure.

Getting all that except the convection oven. I thought I remember reading they had problems with them, but maybe not? I'll see what it add is for that.

Thanks!!

I'd opt for the Steadyfast system vs. JT StrongArms - I just like the construction better and it's less knobs to tighten.

You are missing off the TrailAire/Tri-Glide pin box.

Upgrading the tires.

Tires would be nice but they says they won't do that.... Tri-glide is part of a current package thankfully. Maybe I should ship the jt's then and add the steadyfast after I pick it up? Or maybe with the four point it wont matter

We have the four point but it is still kinda jiggly so we are looking to add JT or steadfast also

Hope it arrives for you by April as well. I'm sure you are tired of dealing with it. Glad all are safe and glad to see you are staying in the Sabre family.

I think the microwave issues were on the Frigidaire (coming on by themselves) and recall was for production a couple of years back.
Might want check out the MCD shades. Actually two shades light/privacy or complete back out. More less permanent don’t bend fade or get dingy, easy to clean and maintenance free.
Residential fridge with inverter comes in handy.

I had JT knockoffs (Ultrafab Eliminators) and switched to the Steadyfast system when I worked a deal with the Steadyfast owner. I'm happier with them than I was the UltraFab ones.

Make sure the front cap is painted and not just a gel coat, there are many fading front cap issues and it has been a royal PITA dealing with FR to get it fixed despite the second year warranty....
