Nothing puts a damper on a camper like the need for repairs. No one wants to be sitting by the campfire and wonder, “what’s that smell?” Even worse, is to find that the smell is coming from a leaky black water tank. To add insult to injury when you find that you have a necessary repair, Murphy’s Law says that it’ll be up underneath your RV and not easy to get to.

Historically, when repairs were necessary for something located on the underbelly of your RV, such as your black or gray water tank, it was necessary to cut into the corrugated plastic sheet that covered and protected your RV’s underbelly. Whether you need to repair something or you simply want to insulate the floor, tanks and water lines because you plan to camp year-round, you no longer have to cut holes in the underfloor material to create access panels.  Not when the new Wildwood campers come standard with “Accessibelly.” Accessibelly is to your RV underbelly what drop ceilings are to basements.

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.
