Whats the real length

I am looking at a 2013 or 2014 Palamino Sabre (not Shadow) model 33CKTS. The brochure states a length of 35' 3". I just received a a specification sheet from a dealer on a 2013 that lists all the options etc (looks like a factory document) it states length at 37' 11". That's 2' 8" longer than the brochure states. I can see the model number not jiving with the real length but not the brochure versus some other document. Can it be?

Can anyone help me out please?

Thanks

1 never believe a brochure.
2 the number in the model number normally is the interior length.

I know a guy at sabre, what model and year do you want an outside length for?
33ckts?

13 or 14 ? Or both ?

I accept the offer

Nice of you to off this up. It is much appreciated. If it isn't too much trouble I could use both 2013 and 2014 for a Palamino Sabre Model 33CKTS.


Thanks

David,

I was informed that the website is getting updated for wrong info and brochure is also wrong.

The correct length for the 33 ckts 2013-2014 is. 37 ' 11 "

And actually he said ALL 33ckts models are that length.

Your welcome David!
So are you looking to buy a sabre?

I hope I speak for most of us on the forum that have them but we all love our sabres!

New Rig

Yes, if I can. Currently have a 25ft Jayco TT. I live in AZ and we just returned from a trip to Galveston TX where we saw 100's of units, none that made my wife tingle. I can upon the Sabre from this Forum and on paper and photos they look great. A problem we have is there is no local inventory, pictures on the web of the same model differ enough for us to be confused. I have a few feelers out for the actual length of a 31ckts. The lady (of the house) has set the limit at 36 feet and I am on her side. I got a great price on a 33 from Indiana but want to purchase locally. A local dealer who I liked over the phone was getting a 33 in a few weeks. I need to see the status of a 31 and I need to see the actual unit I am purchasing.

Any input is appreciated

Thank
