Congrats and enjoy your new rv! Suggest you do a rugged inspection before handing over the dough, no matter in what order seller prefers to do deal. That is when you as the purchaser have their undivided attention. Enjoy.

agree on the pdi before you sign
ensure your tv will be adequate
see if they will let you setup for a day in the camper to see if the layout fits you. checkout the bathroom and kitchen and make sure they suit your needs

make sure they understand that you want to have a detailed walkthru/demo, this can take 2-4 hours but most dont want to give you more than an hour. make sure you have the literature on the components of your trailer

being on FRF will also help

we have a 2008 wildwood and have been satisfied so far

enjoy, ask questions, have a great year with your new camper

One thing to remember is to buy based on how and where you intend to use it. A big mistake some make is they buy a rig in the south that is not 4 seasons, then haul it to the mid-west! That would be ME!

I love my Wildwood LE 29RGSS. One problem with the rear kitchens/galleys is that the water line feeding the sink is the longest in the entire rig. Mine is 21' feet long and not being a four seasons I have to keep the water dripping in the winter time here in Iowa. I have mine totally surrounded by bails of straw to keep the wind from blowing under it, and that helps alot. Another guy in the park I am in has a TT and he also has his strawed because he was going through 30lbs of propane every two days.

Also, make sure all recalls are taken care of such as the Dometic refridgerators. DOMETIC SUCKS and they are a PITA to deal with!

Good luck....FR is a good brand. I just know I will never buy one that is not 4 seasons again!

The Salem and Wildwood are identical inside ... only some subtle differences and the Salem is often substantially less price... might be worth looking into ... go to Forest Rivers web site and compare the floorplans... good luck either way you go!
