One other plus that we found is that the 2 rear windows open!! The 2014's on the lot did not open at all. They don't open far, maybe 3", but it's airflow.

That would be easier to set up than an air bed

Our DS has slept on the jack knife sofa for 2 seasons and never complained it was uncomfortable so yours should probably be equally fine.

We used our air mattress for the first time last weekend when my daughter and granddaughter spent time with us during our just-concluded road trip to see them in So.Cal.

The air mattress inflated and deflated with ease using the built-in pump and was easy to put away and set up. I cautioned the girls that there was to be no sharp objects on the bed and they said that it was nice and flat and even more comfortable than their beds at home.

I'd be interested to see a photo of this three-section fold-out bed of yours, seashel.

One thing we've found not working in the new TT is the charging station outlet. It has 2 USB ports and a 'car charger' outlet. Any ideas of something simple to check before it becomes a dealer problem? The radio and outlets near the charging outlets all work. It's just the USB that's not working.

I would unscrew the faceplate and pull it out, exposing the wires, then I'd use a multi-tester to check for current at the USB ports if there were no obvious disconnected wires, etc.

Now I have not done this myself because I have never used the USB ports so I don't know what is behind the faceplate.

Seashel29, I found this video of a KZ Spree model TT that probably has the same unfolding sofa as in your new Flagstaff. All RV manufacturers use the same component manufacturers so FR is likely using the same sofa manufacturer as KZ. Is it the same as yours?

I disagree with the guy in the video who says it's the nicest sofa in the RV industry. That sofa has 3 segments at 3 different heights. I wouldn't want to sleep on that. I would much prefer the air mattress that mine has. Even surface and good support. And the inflating and deflating is not an issue except when salesmen are trying to pitch the RV they are looking to sell.
