First Year Camper

This was our first year camping with a travel trailer. We have a seasonal site at Mountain Pines Campground in the Laural Highlands. We have a 2016 Salem Hemisphere 272RL. Everything has been good so far with only on issue concerning a heat duct that had been damaged during installation which was promptly fixed by our dealer on our site at no cost. We purchased our trailer at Brook's Camper sales in Connellsville PA and they were great to work with. My wife and I could not be happier with our trailer. Things seem to be top quality and we get many compliments on the trailer. We already signed up for a second season next year. The layout is excellent and there is plenty of room. Our two dogs, a Min Pin and Yorkie love it when we go up for a stay. I like the trailer since it is light and my F150 pulled it easily. We will be winterizing in a couple weeks for the first time and plan on using to air method for clearing pipes.

Your TT looks beautiful. We have a 2016 Salem Hemisphere 263RL and love it too. We have had a few more issues than you, but nothing that you wouldn't expect to have. They did put in indoor switches for the stabilizers and both of those had to be changed, so don't be surprised if one or both stop working. We could run them off the tablet, so it was ok, except that the tablet stopped working at the same time the switch went out. We are glad we took the two year warranty, though. Just wish we had more time for camping!
