Picking up our 2015 27RLWS tomorrow

Any advice / tips? Things to look for / check?
I have a couple questions:

The under belly storage is pretty small..any advice how to make it most efficient?
Where do you store camping lounge chairs? We have the big zero gravity kind, we used to store them under the bed in our 2008 Wildcat.

What size sheets fit best for the sofa sleeper inflatable mattress?

You will really like your new trailer! We are very happy with ours, I pull with a pickup so carry camping chairs in truck bed. For sewer hose storage do a search on fence post hose storage. Tons of storage inside trailer but not much outside as you already know.

Wife says Queen size sheets on our 2015 inflatable mattress.

Everything went smooth for pickup...Only issue was, I thought it was supposed to come with an inflatable mattress for foldout couch? It was missing on ours, so they tried to take it off the other same model and that was missing too?? Salesman called Forest River District salesperson and they said its not suppose to come with inflatable mattress??

From what I understand Forest River has changed the couches. They no longer have the inflatable air bed. They use a different style now. Click on video
, they have a you tube of how it works.

No air mattress sleepers for newer production except floor plans where the new EZ Sleep sofas don't have room to open. Tried one at a show and would recommend you get an Aerobed to go on it. The EZ Sleep is horribly uncomfortable!

We have a 2015 Rockwood 2703WS which also has a non-inflatable sofa bed. The technician doing the PDI said that they changed from the inflatable beds in June/July 2014. I found the new hide-a-bed comfortable.

We have about 12 weeks of camping since October and only had two issues with slide outs due to installation problems which were handled expeditiously by the dealer.

I've added shelving, storage, a Trimetric battery monitor, Progressive Dynamics converter, Progressive Industries surge suppressor. I've also replaced the tip out above the drawers on the kitchen peninsula with a fourth slide out drawer and removed the water filter from the front pass through storage area. Still in the planning stages are a built in spice rack and solar assist for dry camping.

The only real issue I've had to deal with is the somewhat limited carrying capacity. But, it's an ultralight and I am able to tow it with my Toyota Tundra.

We picked up our 2015 27RLWs today and we are disappointed in the sleeper sofa. It was not an air bed as I had thought. Other than that it was great. My Ford F150 STX towed it beautifully. Our first trip out will be March 16.

Are you buying the extra 1 yr warranty from Forest River? Remember you have only have 10 days. I am filling out my paperwork right now!
And, as expected, dealer did not make any mention of it.
