so can i get some good reviews to make me feel better about my BIG purchase
some of you who have owned a Salem brand trouble free i mean as big issues .
my yukon was like a rock ! hoping this one will last as long ?
We have a Salem Cruiselite 181BHXL, bought new in 2012 and did a pdi with the dealer(about 3hrs) They took care of all the minor issues and made sure we understood everything as we live 3.5 hrs from the dealer. So far we haven't gotten any major issues and been very happy with our trailer.
As for the forums, I too had felt like you did at first. But I have learned that you have take it with a grain of salt. And it's to your advantage to learn from the more experienced RVers here rather than be a grumpy camper, remember why you bought a trailer in the first place, "memories and camp outs".
We take advantage of the forums to educate us, not create the mistakes that a few who have and learn from it. Not saying I didn't make any, but I am not repeating it lol.
We learn how to improve our units and get more enjoyment out of it as you have discovered by making extra room for packing stuff away.
