I had reached out to him hoping to find a service center closer than my dealer (2nd closest dealer to me at 140 miles away). Unfortunately, his recommendation was going back to my selling dealer (I was just trying to save time/money).

But, I haven't reached out to him with this latest news that a factory trip is in my future.

Can you push on the bubble as describe in item #17 and does it feel soft or mushy?
Or tap on it and the surrounding area; does it sound hollow or solid?

I think I pushed and it was hard. Been a while since I poked at it. And, they have the camper now.

How much later did you learn about the 2nd year warranty? I didn't find out about it right away either but was able to add it on around the 9th month but then maybe I was just lucky since FR said "No" the first time I called.

Hopefully everything will be taken care of right away.

It was a while- I asked and they said it was too late. :-(

So it's official- the dealer will do the warranty stuff that they can, I'll get the camper back and then use it in August. When we're home after Labor Day, Sabre will send a driver to my house to pickup my empty camper to take her back to the factory to fix the slide issue, the peeling paint and dented fender. He said they'll look at everything- I hope that includes looking at the wall between the living room and bunkhouse.

Since it is going - I asked about paying for upgrades to get a central vac and TrailAir/TriGlide pin box.

I'm sure they will do what you want to pay for, but really your lucky that it is going to be fixed at the factory, I'm sure you will be happy at the end. You should also have them add a auto leveling system at the same time.

I'm actually not un-happy. I appreciate that the dealer stepped up and contacted Sabre and I'm happy that Sabre is accepting it back and has agreed to wait for me to get this last trip under my belt. I'm holding out hope we'll have it back in time for October to do some camping then and into November if it's warm enough.

Now, the big question- do I go out to Indiana when it's done to inspect it? Of just trust them?
