Hello! We just purchased a 2008 FR Salem LE Sport (27RBST) for our family. It's not our first camper but it has been a few years. We have 5 children (18, 16, 15, 14, and 9) and we just dropped our oldest off at college last weekend.
I found this forum searching for more information about this camper - seems like there are not many out there with the side door toy option. It wasn't what we were looking for, but it will serve our purpose and was within our budget.
We live in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of NY (Savona, NY), about 15 miles west of Corning, the home of Corning Glass (most people are familiar with Corelle and Pyrex dishes). Looking forward to picking up on other's tips and tricks (and maybe share a few of my own if I can think of any!).
