You know you own a FR trailer when....

The brochure and internet show one value for empty weight, and the sticker on the camper is 500 pounds more.

You have LED lighting throughout the rig, but they skimped on the running lights and tail lights.

Anyone else??

And your point is? Outside lights meet DOT stds, what do you want a Christmas tree?

Do you suppose the brochure is the wt of a "bare bones" unit and the one you have has some other options not included in brochure model?

Trivial I know but if every other light is LED, they could have easily, and cheaply, included the running lights also.

Bwahahahahaa! I was JUST outside looking at stuff and wondering why the F$%K they would put LED's in the whole TT and not do the tail lights and markers. Lazy Arses!

You know you have an FR trailer when the identical model sitting next to you has a different ladder in it... Or you have a remote for your fireplace and they don't....Or your outside kitchen has a different layout even though they are both 2014's...

There is no consistency with anything... I still love my SolAire though

You know you have a FR product when you have had only one minor Warranty repair.
