lesptr, the frame warranty is longer than the FR factory warranty.
It has a separate manufacturers warranty, just like the roof material and other expensive items in the trailer.
I think our frame warranty was 6 years.

I'll have to look into that when I get it back from the dealer. All the manuals and warranty info are in the rig.

Why not just put some firewood in the back of the pickup?

After looking at my rear bumper this weekend, I can see why they don't want you to put anything heavy on it. They cut away a section of the I-beam frame rail and put the bumper rail there and only welded it in three spots- maybe each weld about an inch long. They did not weld where they cut/sectioned the i beam and that was about 10 inches! The steel used to connect the bumper to the rail is rather lightweight also.

I am still debating if I will have my friend/employee remove current bumper and upgrade with thicker/ more robust steel.

Well I added an aluminum lightweight cargo carrier onto the back of my bumper. I had a couple of brackets and gussets welded to give it a bit of strength. My carrier is where I put my empty bluetote when traveling. It is used for nothing else. Maybe 50lbs max weight.
