Congrats on your new Salem. Having a Salem unit myself I think you have great taste!
So which Salem do you have?
When you said it was hard to tow what exactly do you mean? There's a learning curve but with a little practice you will master it. I take corners slower and when possible a little wider.
Taking your first trip close to home is a good idea too. You can also do a little of driveway camping before hitting the road for the maiden voyage.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
