I suspect that the bigger tires, etc are a result of so many of us having almost no carrying capacity and being EASILY over weight; in other words they may have learned their lesson.
All that stuff is done by the Gaffney, SC FL factory and may also be why the prices had to go up with the 2014 models.
With regard to the sat dish, somewhere in these forums (or maybe over on RV
) a guy made 3 aluminum brackets that screwed into his roof. They exactly matched the footprint of the three legged "stool" that Winegard sells for the Carryout.
By just pulling three pins, he could take the Carryout off the roof and place it on the "stool" for when he was under tree cover. VOILA!! Best of both worlds. I'm going to do this mod myself if I ever get done fighting with my entry steps!!
