No Tint?

I just realized my 2010 SP 186 does not have tinted windows. The brochure clearly states it is STANDARD on all Surveyors. What gives?

The brochure probably also states "subject to change without notice". Not to be the bearer of bad news, but if it was that important should have checked before taking delivery. You can always tint them yourself.

I have the same model and mine does have tinted windows. However if you read the brouchure it also says it comes with an outside shower, torsion type suspension, goodyear tires, fantastic fan, sink and stove covers. My sport 186 has none of those. The sport models are on the lower end of the Surveyor line. My dealer did not tell me this but I blame myself for not seeing one in person before ordering. Windrider is right the website and brouchure clearly state "subject to change without notice. All the 2009 models I have seen come with many of the options mine did not. I am still very happy with my Surveyor though. Perfect for me and the wife. Then again if I bought in 2009 I would have paid about 6k to 7k more than I did by waiting.

I can only speak from my personal experience with this topic. We purchased a new Wildwood XL Sport which was supposed to come with a fantastic fan in the bathroom (according to their brochure). We didn't notice this until after looking at our friends identical model. When we called the selling dealer they contacted FR and a brand new one was shipped directly to me and was installed at the local dealer at no cost.

I would look into your situation deeper with the local dealer and even call FR directly and remember that most dealers original answer is no even if you are due the item. A good dealer is sometimes hard to find.

Good luck with you situation.

My 2010 also came with the tinted windows but none of the other things you mentioned. I purchased the sink covers for about $20 or so, and they really come in handy for creating more counter space. Mine also did not come with the hard plastic spare tire cover, which I really thought looked good because it matches the wheel well trim and the propane tank cover. I ended up having to purchase that, too, for $90.
