When people hear of lightweight RVs, they generally think of travel trailers. However the 2020 Sabre RV SS150 is part of the lightweight segment of 5th wheels designed to make it possible for the words “extremely lightweight” and “5th wheel” to be used together in the same sentence.

The average weight of 5th wheels can range from 10,000-20,000 pounds depending on length and amenities. The Sabre’s 270RL model is 30’4” and has a dry weight of 7,748 lbs. while the 301BH bunkhouse model has a dry weight of 8,063 and is 33’6” long.

It’s a beautiful morning. You are the first one up and you are looking forward to enjoying the sunrise. It is still a bit chilly, so rather than go outside just yet, you sit down at the table. But before you can take the first sip of freshly brewed coffee, someone else wakes up and sleepily walks past. Their simple footsteps are enough to wobble the camper and jostle your coffee cup. And there you have it, a perfect morning ruined by spilled coffee slopping out of your cup.

The new year is almost here and that means another round of RV shows and expos to visit. When you’re on the hunt for the perfect RV make or model, these shows can be a great way to introduce yourself to a wide variety all at once. But with so many to visit, which are the best 2018 RV shows to see? Below are some of our top picks, most of which are just a short drive away from those living in northwest Ohio.
