2016 Salem Hemisphere 272bh

I have a dealer/wholesaler emailing me about a 2016 Salem Hemisphere 272bh. He said its a new model for F.R. - Does anyone actually own one?

Anything to share about it?

Actually I was just told by the Rep that it is a 2016 Salem Hemisphere 27BH since that is the new model and they are doing away with the 272BH.

Salem Hemisphere is a Sister brand to the Heritage Glen that I have. No info on that new model, but I would imagine it would be the same as the 272bh, That floorpan is a popular design.

I think you will be quite happy with a hemisphere....The features of these lines are quite good

Just picked up the new 2016 Hemisphere 27BH yesterday! Love it already. Unfortunately, it's already time to put it in storage for the winter. So have had it in our possession less than 24 hours before taking it up to the family farm for storage over the winter. Looking forward to the spring to get it out for a good trip.

Here is an album with pictures of the camper: 2016 Hemisphere 27BH





Ended up making the drive to Jeff Couch's RV Nation twice this past week to take a look and do the final walk through. They found 2 small scratches in the front logo, so they are having a new one shipped to me and will pay to replace it. And had a bad fuse that they found during the walk-through. Other than that, it worked great. Made the 2 hour trip home just fine.

I too have the sister model the heritage glen 272 BH. We bought new in fall of last year and like it over all. There was a major issue with the propane hose being located in between the shackle and frame. Long story short, when arriving to campsite there was a cut in the hose and major propane leak. Dealer fixed it. I recently realized that the black water flush valve doesn't work... Just my two cents.
