We purchased our 2009 Salem 292fkds in October of 2011, have used it for the past 2 seasons and the start of the third. No major issues to report, just some minor things that I fixed myself (like the spongy floor in shower that needed some bracing under/around the drain,) and some small things the dealer fixed (loose kitchen window screen, refrig condensation hose dry rotted.) Then there's the crappy ZX75 Concertone, which has never worked right and I was just going to replace (they don't use that model anymore now, anyway.) Overall, it's been a great camper and all the major systems have worked well, whether hooked up or dry camping. If I could wave a magic wand and make it into a toy hauler, I'd be keeping it. That's the only reason I'm trading it in for an XLR. Part of me is thinking that I'm nuts for doing it.

We bought a 2014 30KQBSS in May and we have had a few minor bugs to work out. We did a walk through with our dealer and he went over things in the unit with us but there were a few things that we just did not notice. This was our first TT purchase and we were concentrating more on how to operate everything than on the minor bugs I think. Our dealer has been good about fixing things but our unit is now a good 50 miles or more from the dealer and a long haul round trip so we are in no hurry to haul it back and forth and then have it sit for days in the shop to be fixed for these minor issues. We love our camper and spend every minute that we can camping. I would recommend this model to anyone but do look hard at evrything and ask lots of questions. Lift the cushions and look for nails and screws that are not properly set, ensure that the speakers all work correctly, test all appliances, check all drawers and cupboards. Then once you purchase and take delivery of your camper...have a great time every chance you get!

2012 26RKS here, love it! i keep it 90% seasonal. Only minor issue i had was pvc drain pipes under sink were leaking. Took 1 minute to retighten them, im assuming it happened due to vibration.
Other than that, i use it 3 days a week from May, till end of October.
