Here are the two Diamond Package pics I had. They are of an 8289ws prototype that was made before they used a color keyed roof. We just missed seeing this one at a local dealer. We were waiting for an 8312ss to come in and they sold it a day before the other one came in. My wife and I are gonna try to sneak away to Indiana next week to get a first hand look at the TTs we're interested in. (Sounds sort of funny when put that way)

I am looking at ordering a rockwood 8312ss and one of the new packages called the Diamond package offers a taupe colored TT and other options. wonder if this is what color it is then, new for 2012. This Package the dealer told me was an extra 2,500. Or close to that. I like it.

That is the color. We're looking at the 8312ss too. What other campers have you looked at? IMO the Diamond Package is well worth it with all the options that are included.

We have tlooked at the sunset Trail by Cross Roads also, but they dont seem to have a few things that I want. Outside scare lights, most dont have a ladder and some other things. Very nice still tho. Love the color tho.

We looked at the Sunset Trail too. Its been long enough that I don't remember what we didn't like about it. Thought it had curtains instead of doors on the bedrooms. Maybe we looked at a 2011? Their Brochure shows doors. Is there an option for a u shaped dinette? We are planning a trip to watch a Nascar race in Michigan so we want to be able to sit on top. It is a nice camper, gonna have to make some phone calls. How did the price compare?

Well Cliff, you can rule out the Rockwood lightweights, as their roofs are NOT meant for more than one person at a time.

The one we looked at also had curtains on the bedroom, which we also do not like. No u dinnette that I have found. They put them in some of their other trailers, not sure why they dont in the sunset. Add the color package to the Rockwwod an they are the same price practically.
