I have a 30KQBSS which is similar and I installed a 26" the 32" I have at home that I measured seemed like it was going to be just a little to big to swing it around without hitting.

It is a slim edge, but I don't recall brand or model. I went to walmart with a tape measure and checked dimensions. The 32 I bought wasn't much different than a lot of the 26's. I bought 2 and put one on a stand in the rear bedroom. When traveling I just put it face down on the bunk above it and wedge the stand in between the bumper and matress with a binge cord over the stand. Very secure. I brought that one in the house over winter. But I'm gone until March 1st so I can't check brand.

I'm looking to buy the 2014 Forest River SALEM 32BHDS, any feedback on how the trailer is. It looks amazing, I have gone to the dealer several times and checked out others and this thing looks like I can get a lot for less. Just want to make sure its good quality.

We've been extremely happy with ours. It's also a 2014 that we bought last fall. It's our first trailer so nothing to compare it to, although we did spend some time looking at other models. Absolutely love the outside kitchen and grill. Storage is great. My wife wasn't sure about the outside entry to the bathroom for security reasons but we are both happy now we have it (saves tracking through). If I had to nitpick, I would have liked a rear ladder, and a little better cushions for the booth. Other than that, really like it.

I looked at a lot and we decided on the salem 32bhds. It does lack a few of the small things like the previous poster said. For the money I am extremely pleased even though I havent been able to take it out yet. We've only had it a couple of weeks now.

Did you get a tv for the front entertainment center yet or still want to know a model #?

I could only get a 26" in mine. I wanted to mount a tv in the bunkhouse and would like to get the 32" you bought to fit in the living area....what model was it?

Sony Bravia model kdl-32r400a. I think we got them at walmart. The base works pretty good to put the tv on the upper bunk face down with the base tucked between the matress edge and the side board with a bunge strap hooked on the upper edge of the opening up and around the base and back down to the opening. Never moves in transport. Hope that made sense.

Sorry for rambling, just realized you don't have the same rear entertainment center I do. My bad. Still love the tv though. Very light.

I just looked them up and looks like 300-350. Very reasonable for the picture quality and weight. I'm a big of a tech junky among other things and am completely happy with them. Fits like a glove in the front unit and allows for swivel. Easy to see from the dinette also. Works well with an Apple TV! Wired it through the stereo head unit but really don't listen to it through that for lack of remote volume. May look into changing out the head unit for one with a Bluetooth and remote capable unit later on. Just haven't found anything not super expensive yet.

Not sure if this helps I just bought a FR Salem 27RLSS and also looked at your model and in mine the opening is 23" x 35 and they looked about the same yours may be a little bigger.
