Watch out for the stabilizer legs. There not great quality they bent on the first night out. And yes they were properly setup before we went to bed. Next morning rear legs were bent

Not sure if this happened to you, but the guy next to us at the camp ground had a 2016 Salem with the exact same electric stabilizer system as ours. He setup the camper correctly and lowered the legs onto Camco pads correctly. They only had stabilization pressure and not anymore than that. Well, the wife thought the trailer was leaning forward and decided to get out that evening at adjust the hitch jack up to lean it back slightly. She did this before retracting the stabilizers first. This cause them to unknowingly bend the rear stabilizers that night. Not sure if this potentially could have been a issue with yours. Ours have been working wonderfully.

We almost bought a Vibe 28RKS. I do like them. But we backed out because it was a rear kitchen. I have heard too many stories about rear kitchens and not being able to store things and things falling out during travel. The dealer did not have what we wanted so we went to another dealer and purchased a Vlite. Have fun and enjoy your new Vibe.

We purchased a 2016 Vibe 279RBS from Couch's and love it. Couple hiccups but nothing really major. Couple of design issues solved by a pool noodle. The oven door handle rubs the cabinet door under the sink and the dinette drawer rugs the back of the sink cabinet when the slides are pulled in and we are traveling. We put a piece of a pool noodle on the handles and that took care of the issue. Love the look and just everyone about this camper. Extremely pleased so far.
