Greetings from John Anne and Les
We will be picking up our 2014 Salem Cruise Lite 262BHXL in two weeks from a Camping World facility. We bought it sight unseen after looking at many other 26-30 foot trailers. We liked the idea of the outside door to the bathroom for our one year old, rather than having the outside kitchen on the 281QBXL version.
Camping World put the hard sell on a Weight Distributing Hitch and anti sway system. Our Cayenne has an air suspension system so I was not planning on getting a WDH. I figured I would try towing first and see how it goes before getting any anti sway set up. It is rated at 700# TW and 7700# GW. The trailer weighs 5600#.
I have never towed a large trailer, however I did own a 1987 Holiday Rambler Imperial 37' Motorhome for ten years.
My Holiday Rambler had 2 large batteries, which was great for dry camping, (and a generator of course) I was thinking about getting two batteries on this rig as well.
I'm thinking Camping World has plenty of time to get this TT ready for me, but I doubt they will be doing anything unless prodded. I have to tow this TT about 10 hours after I pick it up.
Any comments to my post would be appreciated.
