Wildwood X-Lite or Salem Cruise Lite?

As I mentioned in another post, my wife and I are getting ready to purchase a new TT, and we had made up our minds that the Wildwood X-Lite 261BHXL was the one for us. Now I see that Forest River also offers the Salem Cruise Lite 261BHXL. Both are available in our area from different dealers. I looked at the specs for both and I don't see any difference. They are the same! Are they the same TT with different names? What am I missing?
Any advice or reviews would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Bill

Love our Wildwood. Thought it was a great price for the trailer as far as size and options. It was actually about $500 less than our '08 Trail Cruiser C191 hybrid when it was new.

bills,

The Wildwood and the Salem are cousins, like a Firebird and Camaro. They just come in different schemes. I have a Salem Cruise 221RBXL, I prefer its blue scheme over the green. They are identical and have same options as far as I have been able to tell. Just a different stamp.

Thanks Gregg & John. That's kind of what I thought. I guess it's just a matter of who I can make the best deal with now.

With them being cousins you may have some buying power with dealers. Please do keep us updated on what you decide.

Thanks again for the comments. It's time to "let the games begin" with the dealers. I'll let you know which one we get. We can't wait to get it home, load it up and hit the road. It'll be so nice to have the extra space. We presently have a Skyline Bobcat 162B - great little TT but it gets a little crowded with company.
