Wow, Thanks, I wish the salesman would have showed me this! I asked about where the spare is since it can't be mounted on the rear bumper and he asked if I wanted to buy a spare, I didn't buy one from them, but I purchased one online, I will be checking my TT on Wednsday for the one that was supposed to be mounted under the trailer. Thank You!!!

Nomoretents4me,
I have a fold down storage rack on the rear of my trailer that is attatched to the rear bumper, the spare tire mounted there would interfere with it folding down.

We got our 2013 26TBSS 2 months ago and only had it out once. We'll be taking it out 2 more times for the weekend before our big trip from Kansas City to Leadville, Colorado. Can somebody with the aftermarket stabilizers post a picture of them? I am very interested in that.

As far as the TV question from the OP, I have the same question. After some bickering with the dealer about whether mine should have come with one, he got FR to send him one. It is some off-brand that I've never heard of with NO HDMI PORTS!

I'm going to sell it on CL and pick something up from Walmart of Best Buy. My question is, how do you other 26TBSS owners have yours mounted, and how are you managing the cables? To me it looks like the thing will have to be mounted with a wall bracket of some sort, since the pass through hole is pretty much in the middle where the stand would be.

Well, I took a look for the spare behind the propane tanks, under the trailer and I only see the inslation and metal frame under the trailer but no spare.....I looked where the front of the trailer meets the frame then looked to the rear and do not see a spare or even a nount to the spare??? Guess mine does not have one???

We installed a Vizio 26" LED from Walmart,really nice picture and the speakers are in the front which is a plus when mounting it in this cabinet.
I used a cantilevered wall mount from Camping world,it makes hooking the cables up much easier and plus it gives you many more viewing options,plus it has a lock which keeps the TV from moving around while you are traveling down the road.

here are some pics of ours.

Do you have pictures of the fold down rack is it like the backpack edition on xlite? I want to add one to my 2012 but think the frame will have to be extended first

Anybody else have an issue with the 1x2 supports for the table/bed of the U-shaped dinette? Since the table isn't square, it hangs out a little when down used as a bed. After sliding out of bed a few times, the particleboard 1x2 broke off after the last screw on both sides.

I ended up replacing it with pine. I couldn't wait the 3 weeks my dealer wanted me to wait for warranty repair. And I figure they would just replace it with more worthless particle board.
