Signature or not??

There may not be a clean answer to this but simply out of curiosity...

What is the difference (or differences) between the Rockwood Ultra Lite and The Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite?

I'm sure the same could be asked of a few more Forest River models but these two with very similar names have me wondering.

Anybody know?

The Signature is basically the upgraded and usually heavier line of trailers.

Signature would most likely be lighter, not heavier, as lighter weight materials are used in frame. Aluminun vs wood. Website or brochure would show the many differences

Nope. The Signature is the heavier line as it has the upgrades. All the Rockwoods are made from aluminum and fibreglass. It's the same in the Flagstaff line except they're called Classic instead of Signature. Same construction and more upgrades equals heavier. They're also just bigger in general with more and bigger slides.

I know as I own a non-Classic Flagstaf.

Also Flagstaff offers the diamond package which means more up grades and a different color of fiberglass shell. Later RJD

Correct. The Rockwood Signature ultralight with Diamond Package has just about every option available from Rockwood installed at the factory.

Signature-ultralite is a step up from the ultralite. I have an ultralite my friend has signature both travel trailers . His is heavier and several upgrades. Not much heavier still a lightweight trailer. Cost about $5000 more.
