Equaflex

From the factory pics taken at the Rally, it looks like a new Equaflex system (yellow) that looks a little more stout than the original like I have. Is that a new design?

Disappointing on the tires - All the hype for G tires, and then they throw in some questionable tire brand

We're those tires what they're using now? Surely there's no way! That would be unacceptable on a "premium" coach like Redwood.

After all, Westlake tires are available on Ebay and Amazon.com. Think of how convenient it will be to order replacements when they pop!

Were they on the Redwood line or was that one of those "other" models

Just looked at the photographs of one of the 38FL's on the production line and it had Westlake tires, so I would say they are using them on the RW's.

Not good at all when Redwood cheaps out on something so important as tire selection.

I still remember Jim discussing the upgrades for the new models are about $5K, then they go with cheap Chinese tires.

Priorities ???

If they want to be considered a quality luxury RV, cheap should not be inside or outside. Tires that our RV ride on down the road should be high quality for sure! I just don't understand their thinking!

After thinking about this more, didn't somebody mention that Redwood was considering offering the 17.5" H rated tires as an option? If so I wonder if they went cheaper on the standard tires to drive sales of the upgraded tires, assuming they are Goodyear?
