Bought Bullet today

DW and I put non-refundable money down on a 2016 V lite 30WFKSS on a special order. Gave up on my king mattress for other amenities. There is a new enterior not on the old brochure called "Monarch" that hooked the wife bad. It better have the fabric HAB or she'll take it back (non-refundable).

SO! Now we wait as it is Sat. and all have gone home.

Oldcoot is correct on his placement of scissor jacks after he sent a picture. I'm already "MOD" searching as I need a bike rack and may put a custom receiver on a bar between the rear frame members sticking out under the 4x4 (to soft). "I know a guy" wheel and axle shop built one for us years ago and I let it go with our totaled Holiday Rambler.

Anyway! Looks like we are here and no longer shopping. Thanks for all the input from everyone be it positive (like) or negative (helpful). Keep smiling and see you down the road someday.

Hope you got the 2nd air also. You may void the warranty of your tt by adding bike rack or modifying the frame. Buy the extra one year extended warranty that FR offers. Good buy for the price as we did.

Before we got our newest V-Lite tt we had one just like you ordered. Loved it. Later RJD

Thanks for the tip! No need for a bike rack for me, they go in the back of the truck. And yes, we have the dual a/c as well!! Hopefully it will chill down good...see you on the road :-)

Thanks All

We did get dual air as we are almost in Mexico (McAllen, Texas).

My thoughts on warranty are that they will not honor it anyway. Here's thoughts on weight: 1. very limited fresh water only for potty on the road (8 pounds per gallon), 2. put spare in back of truck and remove spare holder and 3. maybe even remove bumper for a hitch with receiver in the middle.

Now that you've hit the panic button: bikes don't fit back of standard bed CC chevy with a 50 gallon Transfer Flow diesel tank and a short cap. Been there with a Ford when we first started. I garage my truck so taller cap is out.

Total weight of bikes and rack should be around 100 pounds vs. the spare and rack for it at about 53 pounds. Good welder could also reinforce the very poor welds on this bumper/tube thing. I use PVC tube (new one will be 6") to carry hoses.

I can't believe factory rep. told me the danged rims are only rated for 50 psi. Learned today the posted hitch weights are not correct (even unloaded). What else is wrong? WARRANTY.

As I mentioned you will void your warranty should you need to use it. I've had good luck with warranty service . Just a word of caution. Later RJD
