Ours came with the same tires. Seems like Cruiser made another change as well. The floorboard in the slide does not fold up! They moved the tie-downs towards the middle of the trailer a bit.

I'm happy to report that our trip from our home in Northern Utah to Lava Hot Springs Idaho, I experienced no sway issues. I did raise the L brackets on my equalizer hitch before I left, because there was some slop when the sway bars were in place.

On the left side. You can't see the valve in my photo, but you can't miss it.

We will be picking up our new 2912 in a couple of weeks from Camping World. They said they offer some sort of interior and exterior protection stuff. I don't know how much it costs and I didn't go in to details at the time. I'm wondering if what they are offering is just an expensive coat of spray on wax and scotch guard. Is it something you all had done to your units or can I just purchase a good uv protection wax and do this myself.

You can always buy something yourself and DIY, but is your time worth it?

It's a protective coating. It usually lasts 5 years. Most dealers charge $1000.

Congratulations! We bought ours last month and got it out once before I winterized it. We absolutely love it! What will you be using to pull it?

I have never seen a "five year coating."

Let me rephrase that. The warranty is good for 5 years.

Well, we HAVE a Ford F-150, but we are BUYING a Dodge Ram 2500. The camper will be here in about 2 weeks but the truck won't be in for about 4-6 weeks. In the mean time we are trying to sell the Ford.

Good choice to upgrade trucks...you would be miserable and unsafe pulling that rig with a 1/2 ton. Too much weight, drag and wall area.
