Question Looking at a Salem LE 27BH

I'm looking at purchasing a 2005 Salem T27BHLE as my first trailer. I'm wondering, is this a lite travel trailer? If so, are they well built lites, or one of the throw away ones I've heard about? Anything in particular i should look for? Any help would be appreciated!

Familiar with the brand, just not that model/line. Hope someone else can help. I'm very pleased with my Salem, but it's a Park Trailer.

My brother and I are going to pick our new 2009s up tomorrow. They are fairly light; dry weight 4740. We searched and researched, and these had what we wanted. We special ordered what we wanted, and since we are buying 2, I think we got a good deal.

I hope they are good. This guy in Jonesboro Arkansas moves a lot of Salem LEs.

We looked a lot of them over, and they seemed made as well as the others. They seemed to compare to the Jayco Jayflite and Zinger, if that means anything to you.

We got our 27 le. My ford 150 had no problem pulling it. Had a leak over the rear cargo door, just a matter of a little caulk. So far I really like it. No, I don't consider it a throw away. I wouldn't have bought it if I did.
