Sabre travel trailers

We are thinking about a Sabel travel trailer. A 32retx bumper pull. Anyone have any comments pro or con? This trailer has an unusual couch in the back almost like a small sectional. I know our dogs will like that!
We want to know how it tows? We have a 2500 Ram gas 6.4L so weight is Ok we are more concerned about the length and fueling up at gas stations.
Any comments on the unusual cornets of the king size bed?
How about under the trailer suspension, jacks, tanks etc.
I plan to ask the dealer a lot of questions too but hope some folks here can provide some real life Intel. The dealership who has this trailer is a high pressure sweat shop for sales.
Thanks!

Did you mean Sabre, not Sabel?

Yup! I can't figure how to edit that. Glad you figured it out.

Can someone tell me how to delete this thread I started? I must have had a bad day because the trailer we are considering is a Salem. I had the wrong brand twice. Maybe that is an omen.
Thanks

Just for information Salem and Wildwood trailers are identical with different graphics / colors.

Which ever one you choose made sure to do a good PDI (pre delivery inspection) make them run every thing and also check water flow fo leaks. You can down load a printable PDI form that you can take with you. Go to the green header bar above and go to Library scroll down till you see PDI. Make them fix any issues before taking possession of the unit. Good luck RJD

Thank you. When I finally got the brand name right, I am getting good info.

Knowing this is like a Wildwood helps.

Thank you. I will pull that list and I have a long list of must haves based on our current Windjammer.

If you are considering buying a Sabre, you might want to read the "water in cap" thread and see how they treat their customers.

Thanks for the replies to my confusing misspelled and wrong brand post. We are going to pass in the Salem RET. Great floorplan and we like the versa-couch. but the quality just doesn't match what we have now in our 2015 Windjammer. To get that quality we have to move up to a Vibe or another Rockwood. So we are back to saving a lot more pennies!
Thanks.
