2018 241QB - what do I have - Salem or Wildwood?

Bought the trailer, but can't figure out if I have a Salem or Wildwood.
Front has just 'Forest River Cruise Light' with blue logo.

Cruise Light is strictly a Salem brand. It is a twin of a Wildwood version.
Should also say "Salem" in the logo decal.

If you have the VIN of the trailer handy, you can look at the fifth and sixth characters, which should be the brand. This link below should show the abbreviations for the different brands that we keep in the library. It's a pdf that you can view/print

From what I could ascertain from looking at the pdf file, is if the fifth character of the VIN is a S its going to be a Salem and a W indicates a Wildwood.

If you look at the pic of the back of this 2018 Cruise Lite, it clearly says "Salem Cruise Light by Forest River".

Thanks! Finally opened my eyes and saw it on the driver side rear in big fat letters! Salem.

Didn't register earlier because I thought its just a copy of the FRONT logo.

Mystery solved!
