These racks have been one of the best additions FR added to the fifth wheel lines, nice to see it trickling down to the TT segment with so many owners trying to find a way to carry their bikes.

Only problem with the rack is that the spare tire hangs awfully close to the pavement. Go thru a sloped driveway and you can tear the spare tire cover off and or scuff up the tire. I am probably going to move my spare somewhere else

I hear ya...my wife really wanted the tan exterior gel coat but at the time of our order, that option did not exist, our white Sabre was built & shipped in Sept ,13...FR made the announcement in Oct of the tan color option on the Sabre's!
Oh we'll, either way we still got a great camper that we enjoy!

On my 2013 305 I have the rack but the spare tire is on a rack under the front part of our trailer...about where the master bed is.

Good point. I haven't travelled with mine down yet but it could be very close. I know when I backed in my driveway (which is a pretty good grade) I drug the rack and it wasn't even down.

Of course, that spare also adds to the weight of the rack, which is considerable, when you're trying to lower or raise it. I haven't traveled with mine down, either.
