From the FR website the spare tire and carrier on this model are optional.

Mine came with spare tire, not that it really mattered. After picking up a nail I went to install spare tire and found that my Shasta Flyte has 6 lugs wheels and the spare was a 5 lug wheel. Being that I was only few months out of warranty I bought new tire, then contacted selling dealer only to be told too bad your out of warranty. Do these people even require workers to know how to count. Very poor customer loyalty !

Welcome new posters. I hope you stay with the forum and get a great education. During the first year you can expect many issues to crop of from minor to major that will need repair or replacement. Most of these units, regardless of who the manufacturer is, are produced with unskilled labor with less than a year experience. It helps to have a few mechanical skills so you can do the minor stuff yourself as it makes no sense to burn $25 or more for fuel to replace a $5 part available on Amazon.

You can get lots of help on here and most of the time there is a Youtube video showing how to repair, replace or diagnose something. Keep up with your maintenance and you will enjoy many years of memories camping as the rest of us do.

That's because the dealer ordered it with that option. Should have been listed on your build sheet.

I bought a new FR Wildwood x-lite last year for one of those big RV ranches here in Texas. Only to find it was buy it and see you. Never again! If I ever buy new again I'm going to a small local firm the will fix what they sell.

After dealing this week with our dealer and their lack of care and urgency in handling our warranty repairs I agree 100%. I did however contact the warranty manager of the Salem and Wildwood Division in order to get some issues expedited. Hopefully he will follow thru.

The owner of the RV Dealership told me since I bought an entry level trailer I should not expect as much as in a more expensive trailer. My reply was and always will be that there is a difference between expensive and less expensive items but there should always be quality workmanship regardless of the item's price tag. Every issue I had is directly related to workmanship.

Going forward I plan to handle everything myself unless we have a major failure.
