New from MA

Looking to buy our first TT. Went tent camping last summer for the first time in 20 years and realized I'm too old for that now.

We went to the show last weekend and it was a bit overwhelming to say the least. We fell in love with the Salem FS 195bh. This weekend heading to the dealers open house, and hope to make it official.

Looking forward to the camping season and hope to learn a lot from you all.

Welcome to the forum! Good luck in your purchase. Camping is a great way to spend time with the other half and family. Any questions, feel free to ask. If we don't know the answers....we make 'em up.

Welcome form Wisconsin. When you go to the dealers open house to look at the Salem FS 195bh again spend a decent amount of time in it. Ask yourself can you safely tow it, where/how will you store stuff, how will it be to spend a rainy day in, etc. Good luck!

Definitely will do that. I know my husband truck will tow it, but just not sure what else we need on the truck we have a hitch but don't think anything else.
