If so, what came on top of the island, wood or corian?
If anyone has the 8528RSWS, any major issues?
Don. I have the corian top in my 8282 and it is heavy. The wheels are mounted to the floor of the island and the walls are built around the floor, so the only thing holding the weight of the island is the brads and staples thru walls into floor. Very weak. My floor came up into the island and the wheels could not swivel. I had to beat the floor down into place and put 1x1 wood braces around the inside to keep the floor in place.
Second issue is, do not open slides with island wheels on slide carpets. It will pull the hem off the carpet edge. Had mine resewn twice.
So if the wood top looks OK, you may be better off with the reduced weight.
My drawer glides are screwed up on sofa. Leather is fine but the frame is weak. I added a few legs under it to prevent drooping. Love the floorplan tho. Enjoy yours.
