Hello from Bakersfield California

Howdy fellow campers, we have just joined the forum, we bought our first travel trailer , 2013 Salem Cruise-lite 18 BHXL. We've decided to settle on this one, as it has what we originally was looking for last year. We have done a lot of research, window shopping until we found this one. We will hope to take delivery by the end of this week. This trailer is within our weight range with plenty to spare. Its not too small and not too big

Both of us have never own one before or use one, but we're not new to camping, as we done tent camping, and in my teens going with my older brother's in his truck camper about 30 yrs ago. We hope to learn from you all and maybe we might have some ideas to share as well

I've already learn a few things of what mods to do, first thing I will do is change the lights to LEDs. And wife wants new towels and stuff to give the trailer her own personal touch. My 9yr son already claimed the bunk bed

Looking forward to meeting some of you in the forum or somewhere in a campground.

Welcome to the forums and congrats on your new Cruise Lite! If you haven't already heard or read about it there's a second year warraty available throught FR for about $150.

Have fun buying all the touches for your home on wheels.
I'm in the Inland Empire so hopefully our paths will cross someday.

Take care,

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
