Sabre 36QBOK-7 Question

Just wondering if there is enough room between the back tires to use a pair of these

My buddy has a sabre 34TBOK and his tires are so close together they will not fit. Just wondering about the 7,000 lbs axles.

Im thinking about purchasing these. Do you think it made a considerable difference? In your opinion, would you do the same thing again, or go with a different option? Thanks.

Hi. They work great. Provide opposite lock on the wheels and for the money you can't go wrong. Really help with movement. From memory they go down to 1 3/8" at their smallest. Shop around. You may find a two pack on amazon for not much more than a single elsewhere. If you are looking for a little more stability I suggest looking at the universal stabilizers. Link below. They work good under the frame in a couple of spots. I use two along with a king pin tripod on my 5er. Still felt I had some movement even with the x chocks and tripod. My unit is 42 feet. Ultimately you are still on suspension so anything you can do will help with movement when parked.

X chocks work great and are worth the cost...Unfortunately they didn't fit on our 32RCTS so I bought the custom fit RotoChoks that actually work even smoother than the xchoks...eitherway they help stop the back and forth movement a good bit...had front and rear bar locks and your in even better shape

Yep...I use them. They fit and do eliminate a considerable amount of movement. Still have a bounce when the tribe runs and bounces off the walls.... and bunks.

I have JT's knockoffs called UltaFab Eliminators. I think if I had to do it again; I'd opt for the SteadyFast system. I like their marketing material the best.

To be honest, we still have quite a bit of movement. I could tell when my 8 year would roll over and there is definitely no hanky panky when my in-laws are along.

I want to install scissor jacks just ahead of the axles and get step supports for both steps next.

I do have the JT strong arms and either they don't work like I expected or user error. I have followed the directions on leveling up 1/2 to 1" above level then lowering to put the appropriate amount of pressure on them. I then lower my rear stabiLizer. My X chocks went on first. I have come to the conclusion that a hydraulic leveling system is the best for ultimate stability. My RV buddy just purchased a Mac daddy Heartland Landmark. Our first trip with them is this spring. I can compare then. Although he says not much difference from the diesel pusher he traded. If that's the case Ill take it!

Please let us know how that combo works. It was not an option when I ordered ours. When did you order and when do you expect delivery?

Ordered this week and expect it the end of march or the first of April.

Trying to get them to install a black tank flush in my 1/2 bath black tank too.

I use the X-chocks and did find them as a pair priced comparable to what you usually see for one, so shop around online. My unit has the JTs, and yes, we know when the kids move in the bunkhouse. I just bought the BAL Fast Jack tripod that I'm going to add to the mix next season.
