RV Review: Salem Hemisphere Hyper-Lyte

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine


The Salem Hemisphere Hyper-Lyte travel trailer is back for 2017 after being introduced by Forest River in 2016. Seven floorplans in the Hyper-Lyte series range from 25 feet 11 inches to 32 feet 8 inches, and can sleep from four to 10 people. Claimed unloaded vehicle weights start at 4,768 pounds and go up to 6,273 pounds.

Each of the seven Salem Hemisphere Hyper-Lyte models has a 54-gallon freshwater tank, in-floor heat ducting, a 32-inch HDTV and CD/DVD/AM/FM with an MP3 hookup and surround sound. The 24BH has an EZ Lift Bed System with a Jiffy Sofa, in lieu of a bedroom. Most models have a laundry hamper in the bedroom that goes to the pass-through storage, accessible from the outside. A freestanding table and four chairs are optional.

ATB-Salem-2Step inside the 24RK (pictured here) through either of two doors, one leading into the front bedroom and the other entering by way of the rear kitchen, which features a Dometic refrigerator, a recessed stove with a glass cover, a microwave and a high-rise pull-out faucet. The booth dinette and the trifold sofa bed in the opposing slideout provide sleeping space for up to four overnight guests. Between the living area and the bedroom is a large bathroom with a residential-type radius shower. In the bedroom, nightstands and mirrored wardrobes bookend the walk-around queen-size bed, which has drawers built into the platform for additional storage.

Enjoy music outdoors with marine-grade speakers while relaxing under the 16-foot awning, which can be controlled with a touch-screen remote control, as are the awning’s LED lights, the slideout and the power stabilizer jacks. Base MSRP starts at $28,000.
