I think those CR857+ tires are a little better than the generic china bombs.

That was a HUGE buying feature of our 2017 Salem Lite. Our other trailer had the sideways bed. Got old quick having to climb over the wife to use washroom. (She doesnít move over lol). We love our Salem over 60days camping in it last summer and all we had to was tighten a couple screws that loosened here and there.

I'm only 54, a mere sprat compared to many on this forum, and it is unacceptable design for us to have a bed we have to climb over each other to get in and out of. Would have been fine in my 20s and 30s. Thus, the Murphy bed.

Our old trailer had a bed facing East-west. I didnít mind crawling over my wife as much as I minded listening to her complain about how hard it was to make!

I'm the bed maker, as I'm the younger one. Even with murphy bed, you still have to crawl up bed to make bed, there's no room to stand on sides of bed like you would at home.

I like Rockwood.
There is usually no right answer. I buy used because I have not found the perfect Rv yet, because it does not exist. Pick one and look at the rest.

Thank you all for your input, purchased the Coachman Freedom Express 192 yesterday, picking it up in May. Can't wait to get hooked up and rolling.
