Am wondering what, if any, frame changes were made to use the bike rack... They sell at Lowes a caged nut that will save you some grief when put'n the license plate on as the plastic taps break fairly easy if you try to bend to get a nut on from behind.

I like the fact that you can store the bike rack vertically without folding up the rear ladder. Me and Millermatic are gonna work on that issue when this four day rain lets up. Get some awning pole brackets for sure.

New Rockwood Signature Ultralite 8299BS owner

Question #1: what are these? Looks like some type of shelf bracket. Found in a drawer. Figured they are a universal thing but if none knows I'll ask in the Rockwood forum.

Yup, bet they're the stand for the TV supplied with your unit
Ours was a different TV/stand, but it took me a few mins to realize what it was when I found it in one of the cabinets

I do have a question for the OP? The frame looks the same as mine except it is extended, did they tell you how much weight it can carry by any chance. I know I can remove the spare and not carry anything over 45 lbs per FR factory. That's a big change, first time I saw that..... Also is that a new model they came out with in 2016? Looks like the Saber rack.
