What is the deal with sabre??

I had a friend that just purchased a sabre and I thought they used to be a Palomino but I can't find them on their website. Now they show under forest river sabre but the model that he bought doesn't show on any factory website.

Model number 360qb- 2017

Anyone know the story??

It has been that way for several years. Sabre division is managed by a people that make buses. They had a real bad run of QC and split Palomino up. The Columbus is managed by the Rockwood/Flagstaff group now. The QC of Rockwood has been applied to the the Columbus.
Also Columbus introduced the Compass line that is comparable in price to the Sabre.
This happened in the summer of 2015. The Sabre i have seen at trailer shows have the bump in to road corrected and have regained the quality they were known for.

For a Sabre, they are on Forest River's web site here...
SABRE

If it is a new model, web sites are not always up to date.

Sorry I'm running you guys in a circle- I can find the floor plan on other sites. I just don't understand why it's not on a factory site.

I could be what happened to me Palomino discontinued my model hybrid and took all information from their website. Even older manuals. The quality control my 2014 Palomino Solaire was so bad I got rid of it last year.
Good luck with your searching.
