That doesn't sound right. My 2014 came with a mattress. It zips up in a pouch hanging off the back of couch

I tow ours with an Equilizer. Although noisy it's a massive piece of equipment. I have been researching the Anderson which is about a thousand pounds lighter (exaggeration of course). I haven't quite wrapped my head around how the Anderson works but there are many claims that it does in fact work supposedly better than the Equilizer.

The air mattresses are out now. The current trailers are shipping with a new style bed called an EZ Sleep Hide-A-Bed. Here's a video of it.

Not too sure that F/R rep knew wtf he/she was talking about. Tires have no affect on the a/axle and b/frame unless the tires are such a radical change in size that they rub. Now saying that, I'm sure folks won't put multiple size tires on their TT. I would of course make sure the tires match the circumference of those coming off the TT. The Dexter axles are two 3500# axles which is of course 7000# total. The TT GVRW is 7500#. The remainder of the weight is the tungue weight. The tires sold on the trailer are Super Trail "C" rated 1760# each (7040#), 65 mph at 50 psi. I will definitely be changing out these to "D" rated Hankook this summer.
I have no idea why manufacturers put such under rated tires (my opinion) on these trailers with weight limits so close. Granted I have had our TT weighed (all four axles including tow vehicle) and fully loaded is about 6500#. I eyeball everything the DW walks up the TT to monitor the weight. As I said in a previous post, I removed the counter extension and the air bed. Limit your load and you will be fine. Load it to the max and watch out and hang on.

And, as expected, dealer did not make any mention of it.

I called Rhonda at Forest river and confirmed that the 10 day rule on the extended warranty is no longer valid. Still, I recommend getting it done asap.
