new in Southern Illinois

Hi all! We have always been tent campers, but since our kids are grown we decided to get a trailer. We initially purchased a 2011 Sportsman classic made by KZ. While we initally loved it, after our first outing the water pump went out, the counter top warped, the AC leaked and the manufacturer could have cared less! Long story short, we traded for a 2012 Salem cruise lite, 24qb xl.... So far it is awesome!! we are taking it out for the first time this weekend!! Glad to be part of this forum!
