None that I can think of. We don't pack super heavy. We enjoy simple. I put bikes inside covered with sheets to prevent scratching anything. I'm going to upgrade tires soon. (They are Chinese). Cargo allowed is 719 pounds. I pack towards center. Pulls great

I just got the Micro Lite 21 FBRS and had the Pro Series distribution bars and sway bar installed. Works great and I have peace of mind knowing I have good control of the camper.

We love the 19FD, but we shopped long and hard and spent time really thinking how we will be using it. we live 30 miles from South Padre Island Tx so we wanted a grab and go unit for over night trips to the beach. the 19FD has very little storage inside and out. I recommend if you are looking for a family unit I would up size to a bigger flagstaff. I love the way it is constructed and how easy it is to set up, the murphy bed is good for a couple like my wife and I, and you can get in and out easy but it is not a walk around bed. As far s he upper bunk we removed it to give a more spacious feel and to open up the head room above the table booth witch only accommodates two people for sitting and one could sleep comfortably when made into a bed. ours came with the BBQ that hangs on the outside, we haven't used it yet because I am not sure where I am going to store it after it gets greasy. maybe a tote? I hope I have helped in some way.

Smile Decisions, Decisions

I seriously looked at the 19FD for a long time.....Love the concept of the Murphy Bed....But as you discovered it has virtually no storage room. So the debate was on....Murphy Bed or more storage. I'm one that over packs, so guess what. I ended up getting the FBRS and love it. Has all the storage space I need and the interior layout is great. Even without putting the slide out - Out, there is good room to move around. For me it was a good decision.

I will add, I opted for the power front jack and the power awning. Guess I'm getting a little lazy in my old age...LOL I also had a ladder added on the back to make it easier for whatever I need to do on the roof.

I have a 19fd for one year and the sway control does help. You can get one at a great price at Harbor Freight
