Forest River Sabre Fifth Wheel Review: 3 Reasons We Chose a Sabre for Full-Time Living

Hi, my name is Kate!  I’m a full-time RVer that currently lives in a Forest River Sabre fifth wheels from RV Value Mart with my husband, 15-month old, and our golden retriever.  We are frequently asked why we chose a Forest River Sabre for our home, so I’m going to share with you my favorite features in this Forest River Sabre fifth wheel review.  We’d dreamed of downsizing to tiny living for a long time, but the design and amenities of these outstanding fifth wheels were what sold us on RV living.

The Second Bedroom

Because we had a little one on the way, we knew that we’d need an RV with a second bedroom.  There are many options out there, including RVs with rear bunkhouses, toy haulers, and more.  However, we wanted something that was closer to the master bedroom and still separated from the main living area.  That’s why the Forest River Sabre 36BHQ fifth wheel was perfect.  It features a mid-bunk design that was just what we needed for our little one.

Second Bedroom Features:

  • Wardrobe
  • Sliding barn door
  • Air vent for heating and cooling
  • Folding sofa

This sofa folds into a comfy bed. We removed it to make room for a crib and rocking chair in our unit, which fit perfectly!

Open Floorplan

We originally toured a Forest River Sabre 38RDP fifth wheel, which you can order at RV Value Mart.  The massive living room and kitchen were just what we were looking for, but we had to have that second bedroom.  The Forest River Sabre 36BHQ offers a similar, but smaller, open living room and kitchen, and still make room for the bunkhouse. For me, a huge selling point was the panoramic windows on the Forest River Sabre fifth wheel because they allow you to enjoy the natural lighting all day long.

Additional Living Room and Kitchen Features:

  • Residential refrigerator (A MUST if you have kiddos)
  • Three-burner gas range with hood and vent
  • Microwave
  • Oven
  • Farmhouse sink with high-rise faucet
  • Fireplace
  • LED TV on tilting arm with storage behind

The pantry is bigger than the one we had in our 2000 sqft house, so we’re pretty excited about that, too!

Storage Space

We love to travel, but we also own a small business where we are vendors at shows and events.  This business means we need a lot of additional storage space for our products and booth equipment.  That’s another reason the Forest River Sabre fifth wheel stood out to us.  The pass-through storage is massive in these units, so you’ll have plenty of space for everything you want to bring.  In the Sabre 36BHQ, there is a loft above the second bedroom, which will be our little one’s room eventually, but for now, it functions as additional storage space, too!

Right now, we’ve filled this space with additional canned goods, folding tables, leftover art projects, summer clothing tubs, and there’s still tons of room.
