Thanks Danny. I search the darn Internet over and over and couldn't find them anywhere. Before we head out for the long trip in the summer I will be changing the tires.

They are very tough to find; I originally wanted the Kumho 857 but found out they have discontinued the 195-14 sizes and the 205 is too big in dia, to fit these trailers; Bus Depot is very friendly to deal with, give em a call when you're ready

Other good info is that they rated to carry 2094# rather than the 1760 of the ST205 trailer tires and also speed rated to 99 mph rather than 65. I was not comfortable with the Westlakes running about 100# below their max weight and running at their max allowed speed. Feel much better now, a little piece of mind.

I definitely like that. Since our first trip I have always been worried of a blow out going down the road. I will be looking into these in a few weeks when it warms up.

The plan is to change out the tires and add the high pressure stems. Then it's a toss with the TPS to go either on the stem or on the rim inside the tire. Haven't research the difference with the two other than its a pain to change batteries. Although the batteries last five years and the tires will get replaced every two.

Finally took the time to catch up on the forum. We just went to Michigan's largest RV show last weekend. Still love our 27rlws layout the best. We bought our 2015 late last summer, and have only weekend camped with it so far. Looking forward to our 8 night stay this July. "Our" trailer was at the RV show, and I think we convinced another couple to buy one, too! They were glad to ask questions to owners instead of dealers. We did notice a couple of slight changes on the '15 at the show. One, is that the rear windows do not open once again. Ours actually do, a plus for me. The other change was that the battery disconnect is back in the bathroom. Ours is outside by the battery. The trailer at the show still had the old front, not the molded one.
Can't wait for Spring!

We hit the local RV Show and looked at everything possible and nothing compared to the room of the 27RLWS. The DW loves it as it has a huge "sociability" factor. Well me... I would rather socialize outside.

I talked to the factory rep at the Tampa show. My concern was how unstable they this unit is. The rep recommended putting 4x4 blocks under the feet of the electric stabilizers. Better yet, Don't buy the electric stabilizers. ( Wish I hadn't gone that route.) Use scissor jacks with wood blocks under them so that they don't open fully. I noticed that the holes are predrilled in the frame for the scissor jacks.

Well, OK, but I haven't noticed any stability problems with mine and I have electric jacks. I would never own a TT without electric jacks now that I have had them.
