Does anyone have a trailer with this option and do you feel it was worth the $3200 price tag? It looks like the stripes may still be vinyl? Hard to tell from pictures we have seen. Unfortunately there are no dealers here in western Canada stocking these units, so we are unable to view specifics and have to rely on internet / other's experiences.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks
The paint package (sometimes referred to as "partial paint" in the RV industry) is a blend of metallic paint and automotive grade 3M graphics to create a full body paint look.

Feel free to send me a private message if you need more assistance!

We did that and as it turned out are just going to stay with the "clean" look:


We've had the 312 for 3 months and have been happy with the floorplan.

That looks AWESOME!!

Never hurts to ask - not wanting the graphics saves them both time and money during the build. Its not like asking them to add something new.

We have one without the outdoor kitchen. We use the wash basin a lot, nice to wash hand while cooking on the grill. The outdoor stove too doesn't get used much it's a little high most of the time.

Good to know that it is still useful... How to you deal with the water left in the basin after washing? Carry it away and dump into grass/woods/etc.? Do you end up dumping it often so it doesn't get too heavy?

It's not big enough to get to heavy. We just sling the water out to the side if the camp spot. Honestly we are think about trading to a toy hauler and that is one of the things I hate to loose.

Thank you for your responses. Looks like we will be placing our order this week for the 312QBX with the paint option. Hopefully see it by mid May!
