Upgrading to Fifth Wheel

Hello from the SF Bay Area,
Our family is thinking of upgrading from a passport 2810bh to a Sabre 36BHQ fifth wheel, we were looking at Laredo, but wife and daughter walked into the Sabre and said “this one”. I’ve been lurking for a while, reading posts about likes and dislikes- warranty issues-build quality. Seems to be about the same as Keystone products. I have been fortunate haven’t had any warranty issues in 6 years with the passport (I guess I got lucky, bought a extended warranty never had to use it-go figure lol). Waiting for the Ford 7.3 gas motor to come out ( need a 1 ton- my gas 6.2 f250 isn’t up for it), so it looks like spring for purchase. So I guess in a few months we will be part of the Forest River family.

Fifth wheel tends to have good amount of storage. Have fun RV/truck shopping while you wait for spring to arrive.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
