Ok this may be a dumb question but do all your bearers have to be the same size. For a deck that has 3 bearers spaced 2000 apart. The FLW is 1000 for the side two bearers but 2000 for the middle one. Can i use smaller bearers on the ends to save money?

Yes you can use different bearers but at the same time overdoing on the bearers is not a bad thing considering you could potentially avoid the "bounce". As long as you meet the minimum requirements of AS 1684, taking into account any counter-leaver, you can mix and match accordingly.
