we had/have a 2006 25T Salem...trying to sell it...but if it weren't for our growing family, we would not of gotten our cougar...just needed the room inside, period. Took the rough roads in stride, always traveled great..even in high wind with a WD hitch on it. Every time we set up the doors always opened and were not cocked. None of the seals cracked...We did have to have 2 of the tires replaced and the axles aligned.

We recently purchased a 2013 Salem 27DBUD. We are patiently waiting for spring so we can acutally try it out. We looked at several other TT, and kept going back to the Salem. The Salem, to us, had the best options, nicest finishes and over all look to it. We traded in a Forest River Cherokee Lite 5th wheel, so we are familar with Forest River product. We did have a water leak in the rear of the old 5th wheel, the siding and trim seperated allowing water to get under the siding, it was easily fixed. Other than some tire problems, well 3 flats in one trip, but that's another story, our 5th wheel was a very nice trailer and we had few issues over the years. We feel that there are pros and cons to each manfacturer and you have to figure out what is important for you and your family. Happy camping and safe travels.
