Upgraded filon option for wildcat?

Was hoping to find out a few things as to improved firberglass on the wildcat. I see most of their other brands come with highgloss or offer highgloss exterior option. I currently have a 2601 rockwood and the standard finish on the exterior doesn't seem to weather very well. Even though i wax it regularly, it seems lime the topcoat is too thin and it dulls out quickly. Was looking towards ordering a wildcat 282rk but concerned it will look as poor in a couple of years as well. Was wondering if our forum moderator can check to see if they can allow me to pay the difference and order with the better material? Also heard they discontinued the rock facia upgrade which is what i really wanted. any chance they have enought material left to make one more run?

Thanks
Ross

P.s. i posted this last week in the "ask forest river" thread in this forum but didn't seem to get an answer.

Wildcat Chris is a FR rep and occasionally posts here but not sure if he monitors the site a lot, since it isn't owned or ran by FR.
we do have 2 or 3 FR reps that are members of the forum but they don't post on a daily or even a weekly basis.

I apologize for the delayed response. Between the Thanksgiving holiday and our annual National RV Trade Show (just ended yesterday), I've been swamped!

On the topic of high-gloss gel coat, we do indeed offer it standard on all Sterling Edition floor plans. As of the show, all Wildcat floor plans are now available with the Sterling Edition package! This upgrade package includes much more than just the high-gloss gel coat though... please let me know if you'd like to know more.

Chris,
Definitley would be interested in learning more about the sterling package as the only thing holding me back from purchasing was the filon option! can you send me the details on what's included and when this option will be available to order?

Thanks!
Ross

Ross, please take a look at the Wildcat Sterling Edition details here:
Sterling Wildcat Edition Fifth Wheels
You can also download our new brochure here:
Sterling Wildcat Edition Brochures

The Sterling Package is available now! We've been building Sterling units for a little over a year now -- there's actually some online as I write this today. High-gloss gel coat fiberglass has been part of this upgrade from the beginning. Please let me know if I can assist further!
