2020 forest river salem 30kqbss

Hello Community-
Looking to purchase a 2020 FOREST RIVER SALEM 30KQBSS.
I am looking for feedback prior to purchasing.
Also, I will be pulling this with a GMC Sierra with 5.3L.
Could you please share any concerns or things I should keep in mind when going to look at it.

Thank you

Hi and welcome to FRF!

You need to provide more information about your Chevy.
Cab size, bed size, 2x4 or 4x4, rear end ratio, factory tow package or not, payload capacity from the driver's door yellow sticker.
That TT is liable to exceed the truck's max hitch weight and possibly max towing capacity, when loaded for camping.
I owned a Avalanche with the 5.3 and I'd NEVER tow a trailer that big.

I would not tow that with anything less than a 3/4 ton truck. Aside from a GVWR of 9700lbs, you biggest concern is the loaded hitch weight which would probably be over 1000lbs.
