Diamond Package

Looking at a Rockwood with the Diamond Package. Anybody have one and are you happy with the colors? Looks like it won't show as much dirt as the traditional white trailers. Is it easier to keep clean?

Just bought a 2014 Rockwood 8280WS 5th wheel with the diamond package. It is very, very nice. The colors are beautiful. Plus you get the metal cover on the awning which is very nice.

We have a 2012 8244ws with the diamond package and the only issue I have is being unable to find a source for the almond coloured seam sealer used on the roof as I know at some point I will need some, other than that we always get excellent comments from passers by

Have it on my 8289WS and love the color and the other items that come with it like 5er_tom lists. People seem to really like the look and goes well with my black truck. I've found the tan sealant at Camping World, so not an issue. The only issue I've noticed is that the color absorbs more sun. So, depending on your location that could make a difference. I upgraded my 8289 with optional 50amp service so that I could have the dual A/C units. Well worth they $1000 some dollar option in my opinion.

We have the Platinum package (same except color & awning shields) and those that I have talked with say the white doesn't show a lot of the dirt that does show up on the tan color. Just sayin'. We love ours.

I ordered the Platinum package as well. My concerns were the darker colors of the diamond package would draw more Sun, more heat.

I ordered and received the Platinum package. Identical to the Diamond package, including the shielded awning awning in matching color if you ask for it. The new brochures show the shielded awning in the Platinum package now anyway. Guess they got the message.
I just didn't didn't want to pay extra for a darker color and then even more for an upgraded electric and another AC. Nothing new about tan/brown colors. They have been around on various units for a long time. They do seem to be more popular now though, as I have seen more and more of them on the road. However, as I have gotten older, I have found creature comforts to be more important than aesthetics. Accordingly, I spent my option dollars on the inside.
BTW lighter colors generally look cleaner even if they aren't. This has been a known fact in the automotive world since...forever?
