Heated Mattress on 2306 - Standard or Option

I ordered my 2306 a week ago - was looking thru the brochure and found the Heated Matress shows as a "Standard Option" but when you look at the web site and look at the mini lite standard features it isnt there but shows up under the options tab
I sent a email to the dealer I am purchasing the TT from but was wondering if any one with a 2011 2306 experianced this or not

Well, I can tell you that I have a heated mattress on my 5th wheel and it is no option if you do any cold weather camping! There is NO insulation under the bed and that mattress is THIN. When dry camping we can't run AC at night and it gets COLD in there. We added a memory foam topper and let the dog sleep with us when it gets too cold

as far as i know, the heated mattress is an option and not standard on any of FR's trailers.
could be wrong but it was an option on our Roo.

The web site says it is an option, but I was not aware if I paid extra for it. Like I mentioned; the bedroom is almost unlivable when its cold out without it.

ours came with them also, but only because the dealer ordered them from the factory, when they ordered it for their own inventory. they also ordered it with other options, such as the outside grill and fridge panels.

if we had custom-ordered our Roo, we probably wouldn't have added them. but we are so glad they came with the trailer we bought. we don't get to use them much, since we dry camp most of the time. but, when we do have electric hookups, man are they nice!

it's only an option if you're ordering from the factory. if the trailer already has them, on the lot, then the dealer ordered them.

like i said, maybe the higher priced trailers come with them but i suspect they are included only if it's in the order.

Good question! I just went outside and verified mine is AC. It plugs into one of the AC outlets by the bed.
The heated bed is GREAT. The passthrough storage is under the bed and without the heated bed it can get COLD.

Thanks for the replies guys - The brochure says it is a Standard Option but the web site says it is an option so am still confused on whether I am getting it or not - I know Dane from Tropical RV will email me back and I'll let you guys know what he finds out for me - am thinking he will have to call the factory to verify so we shall see - I did tell hime that if it is an option I want it added to my order which it has been a week since we ordered the Unit so am hoping I am not out on this one
