2014 Salem Cruise Lite 262BHXL --on it's way!

Finally ordered our first travel trailer, arrival mid-June but praying it'll be sooner. We loved the 2nd entrance-exit in the rear bathroom, plus the extra wide double bunks made more sense to us vice 3 narrow ones.

Does anyone else have this model?

Any tips/advice greatly appreciated!

Already seeing how helpful this forum will be for us ;-)

That is a sweet layout! Looks like they have disco'd my layout, made a few changes (swapped dinette and sink/stove location, made both bunks double wide)!

Good luck with it.. We love our 261BHXL... Watch your tires.. had to replace mine this year (only 2 yrs old)

Congrats on your 2014 Salem Cruise Lite 262BHXL. Hope your wait time goes quickly. That 2nd entrance is going to keep alot of traffic and dirt out of the main living area.

I heard by getting a good cover for the trailer is a good idea, especially covers for the wheels helps with tire dry rot. With all the rain we've been getting here in South Carolina along with the intense sun, dry rot can be a big issue.

@Shorthorn: yea, we loved the new layout! We opted for the two wider bunks w/built in ladder instead of the narrow triple bunks. They may work for kids, but I don't friends or family members would be able to squeeze in there very comfortably. But loving the wood(like) floors, stainless steel appliances, and just the general design. No more cheesy floral pattern wallpaper or blue/wine colored sofas! I swear, it's bigger than an efficiency apartment I use to have in DC ;-)

We have a 2015, only have had it out three times so far. Layout is perfect for our family. Love the dedicated bunk house and not having to make beds out of the table and also the couch. We will be taking it on a trip to Yellowstone this year.

We just bought the same trailer and I'm so excited to start this new adventure! Is there storage in the benches of the dinette?
