To each his own. I like that the tan doesn't show streaks like my white units did. And I had funds to do both the outside as well as all interior options so didn't need to make any tradeoffs. I would have ordered dual a/c if i had gotten the platinum package....I don't like being warm! :-)

I have had both white and beige and they are equal as far as how they look dirty and streaked. Frameless windows are not good for ventilation, they don't open very far. Somebody's bad idea.

We spoke to many RV'ers who we met with the tan colored units and most seem to feel they are a bit warmer during summertime than their previous white campers...with us primarily camping in the south, we opted for white though we love the look of the tan units...important to us to stay as cool as possible!

Yes. Colors are nice. Lots of compliments, but it does get hot. You can feel heat radiating from the sunny side. Absorbs heat more than white. And as noted above, there are several other items in the diamond pkg. I'm glad I got it but need both
a/c's to cool it on 90į+ days.

I don't know about that ken. White cars I've driven always looked dirtier quicker. Cleanest was my desert sand (tan) truck. Road crime was negligible unless looking really close. Maybe it depends on type of dirt.

Every option available in the Diamond package is available in the Platinum as well. Just tell them that's what you want, a white diamond instead of a brown one. That's what I did and that's what I got. The bonus is, one AC combined with slide toppers handle the heat just fine.
It always comes down to personal tastes, different strokes, etc.

Have Flagstaff 5 er and have everything in the diamond package....IMO is a must - we had a choice of three types of windows.....along with all the other upgrade....
Big a/c is great....might be an issue if you are trying to run it with small gen....
good luck

We got the Diamond Ed. and it does stay cleaner than our previous white TT. When we traveled in the rain, our TV would kick up so much dirt that by time we got to the site, it would look awful. Our new trailer doesn't show the dirt kicked up from the road.

Regarding the darker colors making the trailer hotter - hadn't noticed since we always have our AC on. Now we do have 2 AC's on our unit, which keeps it quite cool.

There's so many more upgrades that come with the diamond ed. that it was hard to pass up; especially since we were having it built vs. buying off the lot. I especially like the countertops and awning cover.

Everything offered in the tan Diamond package is included in the white Platinum package. The only difference is the color. And that, along with any other options chosen, is what it should be,,,, a personal choice.

Now. if they would only come up with a blue Sapphire package.....?
