New Member and new Travel Trailer

After many years of talking about it, my wife and I just closed on our 1st Travel Trailer. It is a 2014 Salem Cruise Lite 261BHXL. Did not get the slide out (although it was reall nice) as the extra weight would have put me over the limit of my TV. We are now in the process of getting all of the needed items to just use it, and I am sure all the extra will be not far behind. The help this forum has offered was wondeful. I used much of the feedback to determine which WD unit to get. After much investigation, I decided on the P3 over the HA. Mainly due to the improvements over the existing design, lower cost, improved qualtiy of paint protection, 90 degree adjustment screws on the towers and of course, spending about a half on the phone with the owner, Sean Woodruff. He answered all my questions and assured me that any sway concerns I had will be taken care of. We are now looking for a place in CT to take our new camper for its maiden trip.

Congratulations! DH and I got our first TT 3 weeks ago. Look out! This becomes an addiction really really quickly.

Pics, pics! I <3 lookin at others' rigs.

Yeah, we felt like newly weds trying to stock the new toy. I think we should ask our family to hold house warming parties for us.


Again, congrats and

On the bright-side, you can drive the house TO the warming party!
