Right on the front of the FR Surveyor site is another camper with the same crazy design:

I have a 2015 32RLTS and I have the design that covers the front slide. It makes it almost impossible to tilt the awning for rain water run off. I use a piece pipe insulation for the top of the slide. Click image for larger version

It looks like a lot of space under the awning is lost. I would be disappointed also.

My unit has the same design with the awning over the kitchen slide I like the idea of using pipe insulation to protect the awning the upside is it keeps rain off that slide I don't have slide covers on mine yet but am thinking of adding them

How? He ordered a unit and it arrived with the awning configured different. At that point he could of rejected that particular unit as I had to do when they delivered our first Rockwood for other reasons. He elected to purchase regardless so in my book nobody was gypped? I'll be the last person who will defend FR or any other RV manufacturer out of the blue as I don't drink the kool aid but come on. No one was gypped.

On top of it read the disclaimer about this very subject on the website and every brochure ever printed.

We were at the Hershey RV show when "Open Range" brought out this "Over the Slideout Awning Design" didn't take us long to say "Looser"! People still BUY this Design so MFG are going to Supply the Demand! Youroo!!

I have been asking FR if there is a way to put a small awning towards the front. What I have been told is they changed awning vendors and the rear awning is the only one offered. I can live with the awning. I am looking at a screened in pop up canopy for the dining table and relaxation chairs.


I do not fee gypped, we opted to purchase the camper with the awning, the rest of the camper is awesome and we couldn't ask for more. The bike rack, residential fridge, fireplace and increased inside room makes up for the awning many times over.

Great attitude. Enjoy your new toy.

What do they come with for batteries/inverter for the fridge? Just curious.
