Sabre versus Sierra?

Would anyone be able to tell me why one might choose either of these over the other? From what I can tell, I THINK the build is about the same on each, but, I'm really not sure. I'm specifically looking at the Sierra 315RE and the Sabre 32RCTS.

Any help appreciated.

I can't speak to those models, but for the bunkhouses -- my wife said she feels like the Sabre had a more "high-end" feeling than the Sierra.

We looked at both last year, along with many others, and went with the Sabre. It met our needs/wants list the best and gave us more of what we wanted for the price. A great value!

I am in favor of the Sabre as well. While both are similar, the Sabre finish just felt better in our opinion. Either would be great, I would suggest you find somewhere that has both and walk through them. It should come down to personal preferance and options you are looking for.

Thanks for the responses. The Columbus looked to have better windows, and actual leather seats standard. Not that may be worth the price difference, but ...

There is an RV show in Columbus OH this weekend; there are dealers that carry these tow models that will be there, so hopefully, they'll have some Siera & Columbus with them.

Great way to approach this! We get out to RV shows whenever they are within a decent driving distance. Gives you a great chance to walk through, get ideas, and talk with others (including dealers and factory reps).

Our last unit was a Sabre and was a great trailer. We now have the Serria, which we love. Both brands would be a good buy. Floor plan is what sold us, you will find some that makes one better for you tan the other. Happy shopping!!

We chose the sierra over the sabre, unlike most here because it offered what we wanted, which was a built in generator and we like the kitchen layout better. Did like the sabre main bath and the finishes a little more. We were looking at the 365saq and the 36qbok

I've not ever seen a Sierra but I do love my sabre.
There isn't much I dislike about it.

Going to RV shows is the best thing you can do. It is all about personal preference and needs when buying new, and at the show you can see them all. You mentioned the Columbus which is what I went with and love it. It is a little more pricey, however in my opinion the higher end finishes are worth the extra bucks. No matter what you end up choosing Happy Camping!
