Just saw your post - not knowing much about Pups I'm surprised at the interior room.

One question - seeing that there's only two tires on it, I'm guessing that you are very particular about your tire condition - correct?

That is what I figured you meant I found some minor things too on mine. I got under mine and silicone around some of the wholes they drilled running wires and lines and such. Nothing too big. Will get to put it to the real test in April.

That was one of the things that kept us coming back to this one was this floor plan and the room it offered.

As far as the tires go, haven't had it long enough to do much with it other than clean them up once and put some Aerospace 303 on them I am not really sure what to do with them other than that. Rotate them from side to side once a season?? Take them off and have them balanced periodically?? Not really sure what the routine is with trailer tires.

What I'm wondering is after all the posts regarding the quality of RV tires is at least with a FW or other larger RV's is that you have at least 4 tires and that might help in case of a blow out. I know in my case of having a blow out on our FW that having the other tire on that side helped prevented that side from perhaps causing the TV from being pulled over when it blew.

Just wondering.

I am not sure. I had a blow out several years ago on a pop up in the summer time going around a curve on a two lane and was able to maintain just fine. I knew something happened though. But with that said, I wasn't going 65mph either, I was probably only going 50mph into the curve. But, it was a much smaller pop up too.

Yeah, we really like ours too. Looked at some Jayco's but kept coming back to the Rockwood. Seemed to get more amenities for the money. Looking at bike racks now. Was using a dual hitch receiver on our old pop up but now with this new one I had to get a new receiver with a rise so I can't use my dual hitch anymore, so thinking of mounting a sport rack on the top of the pop up.
