New to these Forums

Looking to buy a 2014 Sabre 33ckts. Any advice on any extras I need to get or make sure it has? I own a 2003 TT now and will be using a F250 SB to tow. The dealer is installing a "slider hitch" and Timbrens to handle the tow. I know many feel airbags are better but I gotta start somewhere. I thank you all for all the info I've read so far. Any advice for this newbie would be appreciated.

to the Forest River Forum.

Unless you plan to RV in the cooler states, I would be sure to order a second air conditioner with a rig that size.

Two AC's are very nice for the summer...fireplace/electric heater combo is very nice to warm up camper on chilly days...JT Strong arm stabilizer bars help a lot to keep the shakes down in the camper...dual pane windows will help a lot with keeping temps steady during winter and summer (I do not have this option but wish I did)

Welcome from Wisconsin and X2 everything Cajun Po-boy said. We ordered ours with the dual pane windows and they are worth it.

I'd recommend getting the slide toppers. There's been lots of lively debate on that topic, but for us, it was a good move.

also the Trail Air Rota Flex Pin Box and don't forget upgrading to the La-Z-Boy Recliners. IMHO...the best recliners I've ever "slept" (and sat) in.

Pulled the trigger on an in stock unit. Has the slide toppers and the theater seating as well as many other options. Price was right so I had to get it. What a move up from our TT. Looking forward to asking many "dumb" question of you guys to get off the ground. Thanks in advance. Picking it up March 14th. Hard to believe it's really happening.

Welcome!
Single most important thing you should buy first imo
Would be a progressive industries surge protector or a Frank's autoformer.

Good example why.
50 to 30 adapter + 50 amp 220 shore receptacle + 110 RV = NOT GOOD!

X2 on the power adapters/regulators.

One thing a lot of new RVers forget to buy is the cheapest "necessity" -- a water pressure regulator. It goes on the water tap at the RV park and makes sure that the water pressure is not excessive for your unit - A good brass one will set you back $9.00 at Wally World or most any RV store
