Thanks in advance,
Unfortunately, Forest River does not publish the wheelbase of any of the Sabre fifth wheels. We need to know if the FBT wheelbase is 33, 35, or 42" before anyone can determine the correct CRE3000 equalizer part number.
33" wheelbase - CRE2-33
35" wheelbase - CRE2-35
42" wheelbase - CRE2-1000
Chances are highly likely the FBT wheelbase is 42", but would recommend measuring to be sure.
The heavy duty shackle kit you're going to need is also dependent on whether the ones on the FBT are 2-1/4" or 3-1/8". Again, chances are the ones on the FBT are 3-1/8", but recommend measuring them to confirm.
Unless Forest River has changed, the FBT always came with standard hangers, so below are the corresponding Morryde shackle kit part numbers.
2-1/4" shackles - UO12-016
3-1/8" shackles - UO12-021
