Spare tire not included?

I just bought a new 2014 Puma 27SBU and there is not a spare... Should it have come with it or is it common to have to buy one aftermarket?

According to FR literature, the spare is an option on the toy hauler and not standard equipment.

I do not doubt you at all, but that is a pure shame and FR needs to change that even through it will be a piece of junk. It can still get you down the road.

Just a poor spec by the dealer. What we were told on the 351THSS is that everything on the Pumas is an option. That includes the spare tire. Why the dealer would spec one without is up ridiculous. We ordered ours and went through the entire order sheet, everything is pretty much a standalone option, not really any packages, save for the premier edition.

I feel that way with new automobiles. More than half the models come with no spare standard. Some it's not even an option! Your option is to get a "flat repair kit" consisting of nightmare green tire slime and a compressor!
