In our Salem they told me there were supports built into the entertainment center area. How true that is I'm not sure.

Thanks for the ideas. Sitting the tv in that space with a strap to secure while driving was my first idea also, but I prefer to mount it to the wall. I am hoping someone here has done it. I know some trailers have reinforcement for wall mounting tvs, hoping may these do as well.

A stud finder should tells us whether there is something there or not. My trailer is 40min away in storage so it will be a while before I could check my unit

We got our QBUD on January 2 of this year. We named her Seemore. We've done several weekend camps and then took her out West for a 3 week trip for our son's graduation trip.

One issue we DID have to tackle was trading up our tow vehicle. We started with a 2004 Ford F-150, but blew out the rear end and had to trade up to a 2015 Chevy 2500 diesel. We've had some minor issues we took back to our dealer to fix (which they halfway did). Our issues have been with the dealer - not FR.

Our kids are 15 & 18, so we plan on upgrading in a few years to a front living 5th wheel. Right now, we're looking at the Cardinal 3825FL, but have also considered a similar Heartland.

Glad y'all started this thread. Very nice to be able to connect with others who have the same TT as we do. Also - we belong to several Facebook groups of Rv-ers (Average Joe Camping, RV Fun) where we've picked up a lot of great tips & tricks.

I think the more of us that there are with the same trailer the more help we can be for each other. Either with problems or advice or upgrades, we will all have awesome trailers in the end.

Sig doesn't show on mobile app. I guess I will go to the full site to see what your signature says.
