The black ones do look so good, yes, very classy. We have seen many good ones in other colors though. Someone had the blue dots recently and maybe someone else had the green dots? That is a new design. They have them in yellow, too, but don't know if anyone has ever used yellow. We have seen red countertops and orange ones. Think just about every color has been used. Then there is the question of the marble or granite look.

While not the dots, here's a pic of yellow interiors. I can't remember whose trailer it was (Richard & Sue's?) but if it's yours, I apologize for stepping on toes. But I liked it!

VERY nice!
Wish I could have met you guys at the Rally. Or did I? So many new faces (all new, actually!).
Anyway . . . really love the look!

Thanks, rbryan! Just back a bit ago from Home Depot. Picked out 6 or 7 black samples, but it's really hard to tell from the tiny pieces (they only had a few large pieces but none in black). Going tomorrow to a Lowe's in Cleveland - have a feeling they'll have a larger selection and hopefully I can check out the radiance finish.

You can call Formica and they will send you 5"x7" samples.

Oh, yes, someone used yellow, too. Not sure any color has not been used.

Yikes - I'm having a hard enough time just choosing from the black options! This overloaded brain (think tow-vehicle-searching/build-sheet-figuring!) has to limit the options somewhere!

After I narrowed my choices to a very few, I ordered the bigger samples online from Formica:

Explore Formicaョ Laminate
