Help with buying used Jayco over new Sabre

trying to decide between a 2017 Jayco 317rlok and a 2020 new order 32dpt Sabre. For about 2500 more, i can order a new 32dpt Sabre. My wife and I have physically look at both campers. The jayco is definitely higher quality. The cabinets just seem better made and the shower is all stainless compared to plastic in the sabre. Jayco has the tankless gen 2 hot water heater which i'm hesitant to embrace and a morryde hitch which is nice, but has a queen instead of a king bed. The 32dpt seems to have more storage space on the inside. Both have auto level. Jayco has a winterizing station. Like some feedback from people who have had both jayco and forest river. should i get a later model jayco over a new sabre?

I do not like the cheap plastic sinks.

I would buy the Jayco as they are usually slightly above average in quality.

As you say, the Jayco is a better quality RV. You'll probably like a tankless hot water heater as it doesn't run out of hot water. However, if having a king size bed is very important to you, the queen may end up being a constant irritation.

Owning an RV requires compromises. But, is the queen bed a compromise you and your wife are willing to make? If not go with the alternate unit.

Wishing you the best. Please update us on your decision.
