Hello from Canada

Hello everyone. New member, new trailer, new to me....everything new! Just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. After much research and looking at many different trailers, the 2013 Salem 26tbud has met my needs. Will be picking it up in the spring.

Love the site here, learning lots and plan on being a contributing member!

Quick question...What is the largest size tv that will fit in the swivel spot in the center unit?

Welcome to the FRF ! Another Canuck ! Woohooo !!!

Looks like you took that picture on an RV show ?

As for the size of the TV, it will slight depend on the size of the bezel of the TV. You would need to measure the opening carefully and hunt for the biggest size you can get. Some TV's have almost no bezel, some have a few inches. Might mean the difference between a 26" or an 32" or 32" to 39" I missed being able to get a 39" by milimeters ...

This time last year, the smell of the bbq and t shirt and shorts was in full effect. This year, the darn snowsuit just won't let me put it away!

Congrats on your new trailer! On our Puma 31KBH that we had the biggest tv you can fit in the swivel is a 32". Ours was equipped with tv bracket on the side so it was easy to remove and install outside and watch the big game. Enjoy your camping this season!

Welcome Desman,

Weather's been just as bad here in Winnipeg, +24 last year at this time and this year still minus double digit with another dump of snow last week! We were camping (although still cold at night) April 14 last year in our new trailer. Little town of Iles des Chenes where the snowbirds park until the bigger parks are open. We look pretty funny in our 20 ft TT beside all the big buses!

We have a new VCross Vibe 6501 with a new Ford F150 XLT 4x4. Can't wait to get it out of storage and start the year off!!

Happy camping!

Nice to see some local folks here! We too can't wait for the snow to melt - April is going to be a bit messy.
