We have a 2006 Discovery, any ideas how I can make the wood walls and cabinets shiny(like the new motorhomes)? Just wondering if I can put some type varnish on the wood?

How shiny? Most people want a soft glow to the wood, but if you are looking for really shiny, you want to add a high gloss varnish, shellac, or lacquer. If the surface is in good condition, you can just clean it thoroughly and coat over it.

Hmmm. I Googled up "Humbry's" but no joy. Maybe you mean Howard Restore-A-Finish. Home Depot carries that one.
Not a recommendation as I've never tried it but it has a couple of good reviews.

New mh have a clear similar to auto finishes. If you removed or masked carefully and sprayed you can get good results.
