New owner of 2006 Rockwood 8284SS, looking for brochure

We just purchased this as our first fifth wheel. We are really excited to get it home and start using it. It is in real nice shape for the year. Was stored inside when not used for it's whole life.

Before we purchased it I was looking to see if I could find a brochure for it, and could not find a 2006 brochure with this model in it. The title says it is a 2006. I found listings for 2004's that are this model, but no 2006. Couldn't find a 2004 brochure to see if the 8284SS matches the one we have. Does anyone have any insight as to why this would be like this?

If you are looking for an owners manual, there is none...

If it was brand new you would have only gotten manuals for the appliances that are installed, like the furnace, the fridge, the AC unit...

Maybe do a search on youtube for helpful videos if you are looking for information on making things work... and lean on the last owner for info...

Of course you can ask specific questions on this forum too for help.

Happy camping...

It's unfortunate that Forest River doesn't have archived manuals and brochures to support the older units. We were fortunate that our Rockwood came with the manuals for all the installed equipment. I was trying to find out why our model isn't listed in any 2006 literature that I have found and why that would be? Mostly a curiosity thing than anything.
