New 2014 Sabre 36QBOK-7

We picked it up a few weeks ago. Our tow vehicle is also new. We got a nice deal on a new 2013 Ford F250 Crew Cab 6.7 Liter diesel.

I was curious if anyone uses air bags. As you can see, my front end is running pretty high even with the slide hitch all the way forward. I have read that the air bags also really smooth out the ride.

The only issues we had were a small leak from the kitchen sink as the factory forgot to install a sink gasket. Also, the TV antenna had a bad booster switch which needed to be replaced. We also had the under storage compartment flood on us as the water filter came off. Luckily only a few folding chairs were in it at the time. We camped a few days near the dealership and they fixed all problems. A few huge fans dried out the under storage compartment in no time. We love our new 5th wheel. Just winterized it last night. Can't wait to use it a lot next year.

Looks nice!
Radcolt you have any pics of trailer interior. We looked at a 36 this weekend that was pebble and a rear living that was khaki, we liked the pebble but would like real life views of other color options, and its hard to find any of the new interiors.
Want to figure the colors out before Jan. When we order.
Thanks!

Go to Wana RV Center This is where we purchased ours. They have interior pictures of all the new colors on their Sabre 5th wheels. The pictures are good quality. The only one they don't have in stock anymore is Khaki. I think the leather on Mink is too green looking. We ended up settling on Bark. I like the two tone leather-fabric sofa and valance mix. Good luck.

Yes, I have air bags and they are great. You can level out the rear of your truck and they greatly improve the ride.

What brand did you get? Also, did you install an onboard air compressor? I think most people just air up the bags with an external air compressor, but airing them up with a switch from the inside of the cab makes it look easy on the YouTube videos.

When I traded the Sabre 31 RETS for the Cedar Creek 34 RLSA I was faced with about 200# over my truck payload. Majority of the so called experts I consulted with said I was crazy to consider a new 1 ton truck and to add the Firestone Ride Rites. That is what I did and they are GREAT. I only have to add about 19 pounds to level the truck out. The ride is great.

Congrats, and yes I too installed air bags on my dually. The link in my sig should have pics. I installed AirLift and their wireless onboard compressor. I like it and the on the fly control is great. I can change the ride without stopping.
