I've been reading this forum for several weeks now, and I wanted to extend my thanks.
I'm glad this resource is here as we prepare for our first RV purchase.
We're on a 3 year track to retirement and plan to purchase a Salem (or Wildwood) 23FBs
in the next year or so.
We've spent the past year going to various RV shows & dealers and the 23FBs is the floorplan for us.
We live just a few miles from the Forest River factory in Dallas Oregon.
I would love to take a tour but when I called they said they don't offer tours, but we may be able to arrange one through a dealer.
I think I know what dealer I'm going though so I may hit him up for that.
Our tow vehicle will be our 2002 Dakota 4.7L.
From my reading here and on various Dakota forums it looks like we should be OK, but I'm prepared for an upgrade if it becomes necessary.
One thing I'm curious about;
One of the first modifications to our trailer will be a tankless water heater.
I've looked online and they don't appear to be much (if any) more expensive than a tank model.
Why on earth is this not standard or at least an option?
Anyway, thanks again for the resource!
