Over 20 years of fulltiming in three rv's. A few problems but wouldn't trade the past 20 years for anything.

The lite has been a good little unit with only minor issues.
Swapped the swivel rockers for recliners, mattress pad added for comfort, minor issue with the water pump which the dealer fixed while we waited.

Kitchen faucet came loose so I fixed it.

No tire issues, power has worked great unless we overload it.

One of the views we were able to see while using it.

Easy setup.

Please do use your unit and take the issues in stride, the good times will make it worth it.

We've only had our 26dbh for a week, camped 5 nights and so far so good! We're total newbies and still learning how everything works. A little frustrated with generic manuals that don't really give you exact instructions, and NO manual for the trailer itself, but it feels like we're getting the hang of it. Have fun with yours!

Thank you for the replies, keep them coming. We're total noobs as well but I'm looking forward to learning the in and ours of our trailer and camping. I just booked two trips for 2016. One trip to Otter lake PA in May and 1000 islands association KOA in June. Looking to plan a few more.

We just got back from a two week trip to Glacier park and other stops on Montana. Spent time at Court d' Alene and Wenatcee. We had no problems in our Sabre select 292rlds. Love the layout and being a fifth wheel, very easy to pull. Some minor problems when we first got it a year ago, but all fixed. We are headed to the beach in a couple of weeks, then to Rushmore, devils tower and Yellowstone in May. Enjoy and happy camping.

We have a trailer, but don't get to use it...still worth the money. Kinda like owning a lot of things...guns, vacation property, hot rod, land or even a savings is there when you want it. Enjoy.

In the past 3 years my son has owned 2 new Rockwood mini lites and we've owned 2 Wildcat MAXX travel trailers. In both cases, we've towed all these unit out of the dealerships where we bought them and only returned to have them winterized. The only reason we've owned 2 wildcat's and our son has owned 2 Lites is we both opted to trade the original trailers in for longer ones. Understand the culture of "forums" and don't be discouraged or swayed. Take them for what they are, with lots of knowledgeable people ready to help coupled with a few very unhappy campers. Satisfied customers very seldom take the time to praise their RV's, it's just human nature!

Tent camped 20 years ago. Jan. 2012 bought a used MH with 14000 miles on it. So far we put 50000 miles on it and no major problems. Little things here and there. A lot of up grades. Been to Goshen twice, they fixed some minor problems. Over all we love our SunSeeker. I look at it this way, its a house on wheels. Stuff happens. Enjoy. Good times and good people to meet!

There are lots of happy FR owner stories here on the forums. Below is just one link that you can start reading the good about FR.

I love My......

Here's my story:

I brought an 2011 Salem Cruise Lite which I understand is an entry-level travel trailer. It has been holding up pretty nicely but I camp solo so it hasn't been subject to the same usage as it would with a family.

It might be on the small side, has no slide outs & storage is limited but I love this trailer! Visitors always comment upon the space of the bathroom. As someone on a modest income the sale price special was too good to pass up.

I haven't wander far from home so I either visit local campgrounds or head to various beach campgrounds in Southern California.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
