I would think you could get those items and add them on. The bike rack is one of the reasons I went for the 2013 (had the option for a 2012). Ironically I have yet to put bikes on it. It makes a great firewood rack though! The other main reason. We went for the 2013 was the led awning. Now that we use

LOL! Not all changes are good - the newer 2013s and 2014s in my camper changed the front cap design. I have to say, I'm not a fan.

So there- you can have it both ways.

I loved the idea of the LED awning when we bought our 2013 305..... But dang!!! How about a dimmer switch because those babies are bright....we feel like we're starring on a broadway show when they are on...so unless I'm performing surgery....they remain in the off position!

I know what you mean but we never actually sit under ours. We are allways out by the campfire so the add a nice touch to the view. We have some cheap solar lights we put out behind the camper so I can walk around and not trip gettng firewood. The leds are so bright they keep the ones on the awning side from turning on

Nice to know we Love our TT no matter what ...

Although I did call the service dept to see if it was an option to add the bike rack/fire wood holder for mine ... They said no cause it is for the newer Sport295 coming straight from the manufacturer ....
