Rear of underbelly with additional screws attached.

Bracket I am considering fitting a 2x6 across to prevent reoccurrence.

Yes, I think it will be fine. I am still wondering if anybody knows the purpose of the bracket(s), both front and rear. Spare tire? Sewer pipe storage?

I have a 2014 27rlws and do not have those brackets. Looks like they would be perfect for mounting pvc fence posts or a underbelly spare tire carrier.

They really don't look like they're strong enough for a spare, but I'm not an engineer. Certainly would be good for the fence posts, awning supports etc. My trailer is a "2015" but was built and delivered in April 2014. There is one set at the back and another just ahead of the front stabilizer jacks.

I don't know for sure but thought those brackets were for mounting scissor jacks if wanted. Our 27RLWS is stationary in an RV resort so I placed wooden columns under the rear brackets to help stabilize the trailer.

This is my first time looking into Forest River. I really like the Flagstaff Classic 27RLWS and am interested in the V-Lite 28VRBS. The 27RLWS is a great floor plan and has great windows for the outside view and feel. However, it has 3 slides. The V-Lite has only 2 slides and a very different floor plan. I gravitate to the Rear Living, because of the outside feel. We currently have a pop up camper and this will be our first travel trailer. I have heard a few conflicting reviews of Forest River from some camping buddies, but don't have a real feel overall. I am also looking at a Crossroads Sunset Trail that have only 1 superslide. I am very concerned about the slides and the issues with leakage. I've been trying to read up on the quality of construction of the Forest River Flagstaff compared to the Sunset Trail but it is difficult to get a good feel of the info. Any suggestions and advice regarding these particular models would be greatly appreciated. We will be retiring in a few years and would like to travel nationwide and would like to have a good experience with our first travel trailer.

Well this is 3rd summer in our 27RLWS and we have not had a single issue that required a return to the dealer for repair. I have fixed a couple minor issues myself. The kitchen faucet started leaking last year and I replaced it with a much nicer faucet from Menards. Seems like there was something else but I forget what it was. We have towed through and camped in absolute monsoon rain and not a drop inside. Not everyone has had this good luck, but it is possible. 3 slides haven't been a problem but some people occasionally blow a fuse. We are extremely happy with our 27RLWS, the floor plan is awesome. Good luck!

The scissors jacks are mounted on separate brackets. They kind of have me baffled, but the 2x6 idea seems to have worked out fine, and if I want to hang anything else, like additional sewer pipe, I'm good to go.

I have those on mine and I mounted a Sani-Tube Super Slider 56/100 on them. It is a tube for holding sewer tubes. By adding a plate to each side( because the tube telescopes to 100") I have a tube that holds 5 fishing rods up to 6'6" and can be locked, although I just put a zip tie on the caps. There's enough room I can add a second tube easily. The flanges are for the electric stabilizer jacks
