Spare Tire

Does anyone know if the Rockwood with the convenience package will come with a spare tire? We ordered an 8286WS a few weeks ago and when it comes in I want to make sure I have a spare when we pick it up.
Also, if it does not have one, does anyone know the tire size?

Copied from the Rockwood website:

Convenience Package

◦Aluminum Wheels
◦Outside Speakers
◦Tinted Safety Glass
◦Spare Tire Carrier & Cover
◦Power Awning With Adjustable Rain Dump
◦Microwave
◦Lamilux 4000 Laminated Fiberglass Sidewalls


Ain't that cool?

That still doesn't answer my original question.

Most likely it will have a spare tire.

I believe my post did answer your original question.

READ it again.

Spare Tire Carrier & Cover .
There should be a "comma" between the words, Spare Tire & Carrier.

Just cuz I like like to stir. I can see the convenience package with a tire cover, carrier, but no tire.
Don't ask a writer to read bad English!
Eats, shoots and leaves.
OR
Eats shoots and leaves.
Commas are way important.

Yes they are, but in this world of fast pace, texting and so, the most important information is left out. I have run across many informational list of standard features and option, on RV manufacturer web site, that leave out commas, parentheses and periods in their notes.
I'm no writer by a long shoot, but I do read between the lines, most of the time.

I will tell you this much. If I order a truck, car, RV or whatever, I WILL know for darn sure if all item that I expect are included.

As will I, but I will not be surprised if the 'convenience package' arrives sans tire.

Every FR trailer I've seen, with the convenience package, come with a spare tire. 95% of the dealers will order the Convenience Package when ordering a "for inventory" trailer.

Who wants to buy a travel trailer without a spare tire? I sure as heck don't.

Every Forest River trailer on the dealer's lot that I got mine from has spare tires and every one I have ever seen at an RV show had a spare tire. They are not going to put a carrier and a cover on the trailer without a tire under that cover. It is a small cost to them anyway.

It is one of those "required options" which means it is really standard but they don't call it that for some odd reason.
