New Here Just ordered a 2011 Salem Cruise Lite 26bh

I am new to the Salem brand TT. I cant find any reviews on the Cruise Lite 26bh anybody have any experience or thoughts good or bad? I have a 2005 Chev Silverdao 1500 Crew Cab with a 5.3 vortec V-8. I bought this TT because of its shipping weight 4050 dry and a dry hitch weight of 407lbs. I have an equalizer e2 wd hitch. I think I should have no problems pulling it. Any thoughts? I was pulling a Hornet 21rsls 4900lbs dry with a 660lb hitch weight last season and that was a real bear. This will be my 3rd and longest TT. I have owned 2 popups a Viking6ft and Jayco12ft. A Mallard 19N and the Hornet 21rsls. So this will be a new experience. I have 3 boys, and my wife thinks we stepped down a liitle from the hornet for length and towability. Any Advice would be appreciated.

With a crew cab 1/2 ton truck, you should be OK with that trailer, but don't expect it to pull that much better than your Hornet. I betcha after the options are added to your Salem, it will be close to the dry weight of your Hornet.

Any updates on how your experience with your 26Bh has been over the last year or so?
