Help! Ordering 2013/14 Sabre 35QSIK

We are getting close to ordering a Sabre 35QSIK (bunks w/slide kitchen). The wife and I formerly had a Crossroads Cruiser with a lifestyle lounge. I've read on here about a "super lounge" in the Sabre but looking through the brochure and online there isn't a mention (I might of missed it) on the details and if it's still an option? I love the 12' couch we had in our Crossroads and I had given up on finding a unit with something similar until I came across a mention of the "super lounge".

Also, the brochure is non-specific on whether the 35QSIK can be ordered with a king bed, it appears it is an option on this floorplan by reviewing pictures online.

Also, on price I've requested a quote from RVWholesalers - any other "volume dealers" I should be aware of that may compete on a price basis with RVW?

I currently have a Forester Class C - selling it now so I'm quickly approaching the point of ordering it. Anyone with a "super lounge" who could share some pictures?

Anyone with a 35QSIk that would care to share their opinions/thoughts? Seems the Sabre is well thought of on here, a miracle today with the way some brands have been headed.

Thank you!

we looked at them but decided to get the wildcat instead, but got it with out the kitchen outside, we wanted more room for the kids and their friends and when they are done with us I can put a desk under the bunk, also we like the 2012 master layout with the angled bed it opens the room up so much

Thank you - sent a PM to him.

Looks like you have a new Sabre - how are you liking it so far, any QC issues?

We actually took delivery in Mar 2012 and we love it. We ordered it about this time last year and took about 6 weeks. QC wise, there was a fairly long list (14 or 15 items) of mostly minor things which the dealer took care of either on pick day or later on in the seson when we were not using it. Others on this forum reported zero sabre factory defects. Either wee were an exception or maybe just very fussy.

We had excellent support form both the factory and Dealer and all were resolved with no impact on our camping plans.

Be sure to prepare a Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) check list and be prepared to spend several hour on pick up day if need be going over it.

I have responded to the origianl questions:
1. I've emailed the customer a picture of the superlounge
2. Yes you can order a king bed in the 35QSIK model.

I hope this helps you become a new Sabre owner.

Thanks for considering our brand.

Does anyone have any recomendations for other "volume" dealers to look at? So far Wana RV has treated me real well. I quoted RVW but based on the sales persons lack of professionalism and speaking down about other dealers (who have many user reviews) I would like other names.

So who have you folks bought your Sabre's from? Give me a lead!

We were lucky. I looked into the 2 that you mentioned + a few more, but we would up buying from the closet Sabre dealer to our home here in MI...just 30 min away. Best price and good service rep.

Watch out for Lo balling. You may get a good base price for the unit,but then extra fees added on like prep, delivery etc. The only extras for us were Tax & Title.
