Colored Front Cap?

Hi All,
We are new to this forum but so glad we found it. We are interested in the 298BHD Crusader. There is one on the way to our local dealership and we noticed that it has the colored front cap. Wondering if anyone knows if this is just paint or is the hardwall actually colored? We are concerned with rock chips and such as black is so bad for showing every little nick.

Can' t help you... but I am sure PT will assist in your concerns. The front cap of a 5er is pretty high. I do not think that you would need to be concerned.
There are other trailers that are dark without problems...like the Caliber.

I believe it's painted. Wouldn't worry about stones getting that high....it's a nice bug catcher though. Welcome to the forum!!!!!!

The dark brown is a colored GEL. It's a replacement for the white GEL typically put on a front cap. It will still scratch like a white cap but it would have to be a pretty severe scratch to penetrate thru the colored GEL into the fiberglass below. Chipping should not be an issue since it's not a "layer" of paint on the exterior.

Thank you so much for all of the responses and especially to RV Guy. We took another look at the 298BHD today and were extremely happy and decided to make the big purchase!!! There were a few questions that our salesman couldn't answer so he fired a few emails to Chris at Prime Time who responded to our questions within minutes!!! Keep in mind this is a Sunday afternoon!! This is our fourth RV and I can tell you that we have never ever had customer service that comes even close to this!!!
We were told our unit has been built and just needs to be shipped. Pretty excited for its arrival just in time for May Long Weekend!!

to the forum and congrats on the new 5'er.

Glad to have you as a proud Prime Time Crew Member!

PT's customer service can't be beat. Hopefully you won't need them, but all new trailers seem to need to get a few bugs worked out. I'm sure PT will be more than helpful.

Godd luck and happy camping!

P.S. Be sure to post some pics when you get it. Especially that front cap!

I started looking at PT in February and between then and 2 weeks ago i had over 60 emails exchanged with Chris answering questions and such. I am positive he breathed a very large sigh of relief when we put an order in for a 298BHD. The customer service was a huge reason we went with PT.

I can attest to the WONDERFUL customer service. We purchased a 320RLT on March 21st. We ordered it the end of January. We ordered the painted cap but our salesperson didn't put that in the order, but I couldn't be happier with the Crusader. We had a door that was bent. I talke to Brandon on Monday night and the door was here Friday. The door was installed today. Brandon and Jeff have been wonderful. I think you will be really happy with the Crusader I know we are!!
