Hello From Illinois

Hey yall... Fairly newby's here... The wife and I bought a new 2012 Salem Cruise Lite 261BHXL on August 1st, 2012. We have two boys; 2 and 7. Been camping a handful of weekends per summer the last couple years, looking to do so more and more as the baby gets older (i.e. easier to camp with).

Have had zero problems with our trailer thus far.. other than the tires were crap...Just got done putting $550 in new tires on a less than 2 yr old camper

Looking forward to meeting folks and learning lots!

Welcome to the Forums!

Tires...uh...yeah...common complaint in the forums (they are Known as "China Bombs")

That is on my short list to complain to the Forest River CEO at the Goshen Rally this Aug!

If you want to "meet the gang" maybe you should consider coming to Goshen!

Again,

Welcome!

Your right about the tires. I don't know why they put that cheap crap on. My biggest complaint against FR. Keep an eye them. Safe travels to you from Southside Virginia, I grew up on the west side of Chicago North Ave and central........ by the way what did you put on?
