Just checked the Actual "stamped" Specs on this 2014 Vibe 6502:

Dry WT = 3252

CCC = 1441

GVWR = 4710

GAWR = 4400

Tires are 15"
My guess (and only a guess) is FR has addressed the axle issue. STILL I will not be loading heavy in Aft storage.

That would be good news. I assume they have not got around to updating their website specs for the 2014 models.

Either the dealers are all messed up or there is an upgraded version of the VIBE coming off the line..

Who knows what's going on as I've noticed the same "numbers" but I'm going by the numbers "Stamped" on my TT.

I am sure we get just as much snow if not more. With the cover on a most of the snow tends to slide off the A/C however with significant build up I could see it being a problem.
Figured I'd report in now that we have some snow

This is a picture I took today of our Vibe. It looks less tall than normal because there's roughly 3ft of snow on the ground around it. There's a solid 2ft of snow sitting on the roof. Still nice and dry inside though. I did not try to build any sort of protection box around the A/C unit. I expect it will be fine but we will need to replace the cover every couple of years as they tend to become torn by the ice weight, based on experience with previous trailers.

We have not had that much snow here in PA and have had some melting over the past couple days too. Next year I'm investing in an RV Cover! I've gone out after each significant storm and cleared the snow off the roof .... maybe I'm being over cautious .... and I think if I had a cover on it I would not feel as compelled to clean it off. I'm just ready for SPRING!
