Hard to get help?

OK. I realize I'm new, but I'm surprised that no one wants to share......

Hi RishardE, Don't give up on us. Could be no one can answer your question directly or being close to the holidays few are hanging out on the forum. Usually you will get feed back on a particular unit.
Merry Christmas and hang in there a bit for your answer.

you have asked for feedback on a specific brand and specific floorplan.
it might be a new floorplan that not many have bought.
now if you'd asked for feedback on the Salem brand, you'd be getting more responses.

I'm in agreement with bikendan. I do have a Tundra and a Salem but not the specific models inquiring about.

My trailer is pretty much entry level model that really fits my needs and budget. As for quailty I haven't had any big issues at all. Small issues include getting the drawer adjusted to stay close while traveling and replacing a handle for the awning arm. I'm pleased with the quailty of my trailer.

Still Looking

Still looking, but my wife now likes the 22rks better than the 21fbs!!

Thanx for the advice from all.

I will probably head to the RV Show in Pleasanton next week to further confuse myself....

And, Happy New Year.

22RKS Purchased

Well I finally made a choice, after attending RV show in Pleasanton and looking at other possibles, I decided I really liked the Salem 22rks. So, I bought one. Just waiting for my Equalizer 4 pt hitch to come in from Amazon.

Thanx to all who offered advice here. I will post pics after I get the trailer.

Lincoln

Lincoln is located next to Rocklin, near Roseville, just north of Sacramento.

BTW, can't wait to see how my new Tundra does on the tow.
