Salem Hemisphere 337 BAR

Would like to start a post for people that own the SH 337 BAR fifth wheel. We just purchased one to do some extensive traveling in the next few years. We love our unit. Our first night out was this last Friday night, Mitchell, SD. It hailed four times in the same evening. No damage thankfully. Love all of the storage inside and out. I do have one window blind that won't work so will be touching bases with the dealer. Would like to hear about your unit, any tips or tricks and places you may have been to camp. Happy RVing!

Congratulations on your 337bar. My wife and I took delivery of ours a few weeks back and have only spent one night in ours too. I have not come across any other 337bar owners on here yet. It's a new model so we are a limited group. As for tricks... I am looking too. Most everything is tried and true from other models, even the residential fridge, if you have that option. The kitchen was the selling point for us, it's a one of kinda thing. Good luck with it...

337 bar owner

We just purchased one as well. From Georgia. Travel to Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee and Colorado Springs during at least four trips per year. Love the unit. I have had some problems with the kitchen alcove. When we run the exhaust, not vented outside even though we were told it was, the smoke alarm goes off. The exhaust fan in the kitchen area and bathroom are really cheap. i will be replacing them with better quality fans. The clothes rack in the closed fell off when we hung our clothes on it. I fixed with machines bolts through the shelf. They only had four 3/4 inch screws in the bar. The bathroom sink is dinky and not the quality I expected, but we both love the size of the shower. The bed was a brick, but with a foam pad and mattress protector, it is more comfortable. I may consider getting a new mattress. The lounge chairs in the living area are a little rough to get to lean back. We sort of have to manhandle them to make them work. For the price, this is really a large unit with lots of room. It is also not too heavy for towing. Any input and ideas would be greatly appreciated. The only mod I have made is a cat litter area. I took off one of the cabinet doors above the counter area where the blinds are. I then took off the right hand large door on the cabinet below and replaced it with the short door. Now the cat can go in the bottom and use the litter box. Out of the way. No one can see it. And, it makes it easy to clean. Hope to hear from you soon.

I believe the 337BAR is a new model for this year. we bought a 336rlt last year and it was discontinued in 2016. I was thinking the BAR took it's place,but I am not positive. We love our unit. Enjoy

Heritage Glenn 337 BAR

I love this trailer. Exactly the same as the Hemisphere as far as I can see. My wife loves the shower and the stove and microwave location. The pizza stove look is what sold her on the 5th wheel

Must be the same fifth wheel. Like the Rockwood and Flagstaff, they must be sisters and made in two tracks in the same factory. Great layout, just a few items that I would have liked to see upgraded and not so cheaply done. But, I have found that to be the case if each travel trailer I have owned. We are enjoying living in it for a month at each of our children's houses. Very comfortable. We love the openness of the living area. Have you had any problems??

You can look at a million trailers and always find something you don't like about each one. I wish the storage doors were a little stronger with slam latches, hooks in the bathroom would be nice, and hooks just before the bedroom for keys and junk would also be nice. All small things. I have only taken it out once so far and no problems (knock on wood) I personally love the unit and all the room it has. Very nice for the price.

I have to admit, with the recliners, which take a little work to get fully reclined , the TV and the fireplace , I feel like I am at home. Like most people I think I have better stuff in my trailer than I do at home

Just purchased my 337 BAR the end of March. Haven't used it yet but scheduled for mothers day weekend. Like the kitchen layout with the full size fridge.
One question did anybody receive the literature pack for the different components?
I was told that all the info is on line but I have not been able to find it.
Other than that I like the storage space and ease of towing.

All in all we just love our unit. I spent some time loading gear etc. this weekend. Bolted some PVC tubing to the wall of the basement storage area for fishing poles. Was excited about that. No more tangled lines. As with some there were a few things that needed addressing. Wasn't too big of a deal to fix them. The way I look at it, you can buy a million dollar home and have any one of the issues that were described above. But I feel the same. for the money I expect everything to be in working order. We had friends over this last weekend and they all loved it to death. We did look at the Heritage Glen model first and then ran onto the Salem Hemisphere and as luck would have it, it was a few thousand dollars cheaper. Basically the exact same units though.
