This system is brand new to sabre so there's likely very few if any people that have it yet.
And if they do they likely haven't camped with it yet.

If it's the four point leveling system I think it is, it only levels the camper front to back and raises/lowers for hitching/unhitching. You still have to manually level the camper side to side.

The system levels the entire camper. Including front to back and side to side. It does not come with a remote. I believe lippert has a you tube video. Its the generation

Thanks for the clarification, Sam...obviously a new generation of 4 point leveling.

Something I would like to see, would be customizable outside kitchens. While I know there are limitations as to what can or can not fit into the OKs, many are the same overall size. The elimination of microwave, different cabinet combinations, fridge delete, stove top, etc, are possible scenarios. If there were a choice of maybe 2 or 3 layouts, depending on size, would be great. If I hadn't relocated my fridge, I would have taken out the microwave to allow for more usable counter space.

I don't disagree... but we don't offer the wireless mod. As factory installed.

I ordered the leveling system on my new 36QBOK but it's not arrived yet. Still waiting on it and hoping for an early April delivery date.

You can put a power fan in the 1/2 of a 36qbok?

Personally I would have your dealer add one with a remote or wall controls due to the height. We don't have any like that in our plant to add.

I wonder if this can be retrofitted on an older unit?

Well at a order option from the factory at about $2k +or- on a new unit order, I dont know that I would want to spend the cash on them on a retrofit.
Heck the only reason I added rear electric stabs on my new 36 was because i ordered the remote also. Cause I always just use my snapon 3/8" cordless impact to run the stabs down- only takes about 10seconds on each corner and I'm done!!!
But im sure others will love it!

I saw these demoed at last years Goshen rally. They would have installed them right there at the campsite for 2,250. I almost had them do it, but then got a bad case of the cheaps. Still thinking about it though.

I seen the 4 point system on another unit at the RV show this year in Charlotte. I looked really nice and the unit was very stable so I went aheand and spent the extra $1,995 and had them add it to mine. I will post lots of pictures once the unit is delivered.
