Administrator Help

I would like to know if "Sabre" can be added as a Sub Forum under the General Travel Trailers & Fifth Wheel Discussions. This would help break out the Sabre discussions from the Palomino sub forum. This would really help me help customers. Please let me know.

I can't even find Palomino on Forrest River website. When is Forrest River going to update their website to include the brands and models?


Now back to the real world. This is a public forum. Thanks for trying to help. I understand your request, but not up to me. Help us, and get the Forrest River site straightened out, so we can see what you build, and I'm sure the appropriate sub forums will be made for the brands/models you build.

SabreSam, I hope they get you fixed up real soon.
I can see where that would be of help to you as you're trying to help Sabre owners.
I applaud you for being on this forum as an official Sabre representative. Your efforts will not go un-noticed, not just by Sabre owners but others as well.
Helping each other. That's one of the basic ideas of this forum, right?

windrider, I would like to thank you and the other moderators for your help in making this such a great forum!

You sound like a factory rep, so excuse me while I vent a moment. You want us to split models, brands, and jump through hoops so you look good. Meanwhile your own corporate website doesn't even include the models, floor plans, and brands you are now shipping.

We run mostly on volunteers, giving time and knowledge, and just trying to help others. We are not here to make someone look good, or help them climb the corporate ladder. Also some of the folks on here have been forced to live an a camper, due to job loss, and economic times.

Now back to the real world. This is a public forum. Thanks for trying to help. I understand your request, but not up to me. Help us, and get the Forest River site straightened out, so we can see what you build, and I'm sure the appropriate sub forums will be made for the brands/models you build.



If any of the other mods read this and want to delete it, feel free. Just had to vent a moment.
All's I can say is WOW
Most other Public Forum moderators are volunteers as well - I was a Moderator on another Forum and did similar to what you have done here and spoke my mind except I did it in a Private message and got the slap down from the Admin - hopefully you dont.

If he gets a slap down over this, the Admin needs to have it advertised to the wheels at Forest River. The man spoke the truth. Have you seen anything about the Puma line on the Forest River site with the rest of the travel trailers. The Puma owners are the ones that step up and keep buying Forest River products. People have long memories.

Regards,

Hob

I think you took my message out of context
This is a Free Country and he can speak his mind - I was just using an experiance I had once and posted it - no harm no foul

I get this alot when texting to so I am used to it (out of context that is)

I have noticed that alot of diffrent model names posted all over (like you have both said) and after looking I dont see them on their website either - I didnt even see Sabre on the Forest River website either

Harsh

WOW is right! Awful harsh response to a simple request.

By-the-way, a simple search for Palomino RV will find their website (Palomino RV - Manufacturer of Quaility RVs since 1968), including Sabre and Puma, and it lists it as a Forest River Company. Seperate website just like PrimeTime's.

Yes, he has a legitimate request, I agree. I was trying to get him to put his request in to The people that do Forrest River website. Why should ours be "up to date", when there own site is not?

If they are so concerned, open the wallet, submit an add, pay for some of the request.

I'll get down now, but please continue with the discussion, with the understanding of what it takes to run a forum like this. No,I don't run it, just volunteer time to over see it, with limited privileges.

Windrider first of all I would like to thankyou for providing your time into moderating this site. I think all the people on this site are great and provide a great service to not only members but also visitors that visit this site. I'm sure overer the years this site has grown. It probably didn't start out this size. This site probably will evolve at some point and time and I think the more FR sees this as a benifit they may/maynot pick it up for some advertising dollars.

To Sabresam Thanks for your time that you spend on this site not only helping Sabre owners but also people with othe FR products like you have.

Dave,

Thank you. Your comments were helpful and timely. I also want to thank Tim for his comment. We are all chomping at the bit wanting to be around the campfire. The OP just wanted a section for his unit. I have bounced the issue to a "real" Admin who will decide if there is enough interest for a separate forum. (My thought is "maybe not"; but it is not my call).

I personally welcome ANY rep or salesman who "comes out of the closet" since they have a lot of guts doing so. While I am towing a Flagstaff right now, who knows what will be behind the truck in a few years.

SabreSam, welcome to the forum and thank you for "coming out." We will endeavor to be more Rep/Salesman friendly in the future. That is not to say that I, personally, don't have dealer issues (I do), but I will try to keep them in check (I slip up often - but I do try).

FWIW, the Palomino brand, along with Coachman and Prime Time are all listed at the bottom of the Forest River home page.

Thank-you to SabreSam, and the other Forrest River people on this site. Your help is greatly appreciated by all.

As far as the Palomino brand being listed on Forrest River website, yes it is. Where is Sabre? While we each are familiar with our own camper, and where it came from, who made it, what the model number is, floor plan, we have to also understand that not everyone on here has an identical trailer, or has ever seen one like ours own. I personally have a Toy Hauler. Most people wouldn't even take the time to look at one.

I just wish Forrest River would update their own website, so we can find makes and models in one spot, and not have to google the internet when trying to help someone that post "I have a 378bks45tr7", (made up, but you get the idea), that the water pump doesn't work".

The OP's request to have Sabre listed in the forum groups under General Trailer and Fifth Wheel Discussion is well founded. Most other brand names are listed there, why not Sabre. As for how Forest River design their website, I think that may need another thread for discussion. I will put in a plug to have a link to the Forest River Website prominately displayed on the front page of this website, just saying (again).

Sorry if I misunderstand, but Sabre is a part of Palomino and is listed under "Travel Trailers" (along with Puma) on the Palomino site. They don't have their own site, but might deserve a sub-section under Palomino in these forums.

OK boys and girls,

I have a reply from the AiC: (Admin in Charge)

We can rename the existing "Palamino" subforum to in include other brand names of the same class/type. Looking for suggestions.

Like "Palamino - Sabre - ? " or "toy haulers under x pounds?"

What would serve you best?

I ask forgiveness, and never intended to say or imply that SABRESAM didn't have a legitimate request. I agree, Palomino should have it's own space. Would make life easier in a way. But while we are at it, might as well add Shasta, since they are now on Forrest River web site, and then they have 3 or 4 sub models.

So, to all you Toy Hauler folks, What should I rename the sub forum to be that will better describe what FR products are in there?

Palamino - Sabre - Shasta - etc

or what?

You shouldn't call it Palomino - Sabre anything. It should stay Palomino because that is the manufacturer. Sabre is simply a model. If you add Sabre then you have to add all the other Palomino models; Puma, Columbus, Banshee, Canyon Cat, Gazelle, Stampede, etc.

Windrider briefly mentioned he had a Toy Hauler, but that's all I see about a Toy Hauler. I must have missed it, but where did renaming a Toy Hauler section enter the picture? Sabre doesn't even make a Toy Hauler do they?
