240bhxl cruise lite

We are looking at a Salem 240bhxl. I was wondering if anybody had any opinions or things to watch for on this model. We are coming from a hybrid so this would be a step up.

I don't have an opinion on the specific model, but you will like the convenience of just opening the door and walking in (especially in the rain, at night!).
We moved from backpacking, to tent camping, to pop up, to TT.

Thanks I use to tent camp then we got a pop up next a hybrid now moving to a full on hard side. Since I made this post we have decided on a little smaller camper we decided to stay under 25ft. + hitch. So maybe a micro lite BH or something like that.

We donít have that model, we have the 273qbxl. We have had it for four camping seasons and the family has loved it. Itís similar to the model youíre looking at but has a bunkhouse in the back. We have not had any issues with our cruise lite. The only warranty issue we had was the board on the hot water heater. Easy fix though.

We are about to upgrade to a fifth wheel but I would recommend our cruise lite experience to anyone. Good luck and I hope you love it!

Hello, the wife and I have the 230bhxl and enjoy it. We stepped down from a 32 foot coachman.
This one is way easier to tow and havenít yet been told we were to long to stay in any park. It took some getting used to not having a separate bedroom, my wife misses it I donít.
( Iím a very early morning person and sheís not)

Weíve had it 3 years and have roughly 90 long weekends in it with zero issues other than a cabinet door I canít get adjusted right.

If you have any questions on the specifics let me know Iíll help you any way I can.

I have the smaller 201bhxl and have had no issues. Did a bunch of simple mods and keep up on routine stuff. My only complaint is the lack of window in the door, I cant stand that. Ill put one in when $$ and time allow.
