Doc, a prison bus might not be a bad theme. I could put my kids in leg irons. :-)

Have to say that this is one of the funniest, and most accurate threads in a while. Some of the patterns used are just dreadful.

"Why does motorhome decor look like grandma's house?" For the same reason Slick Willie Horton answered when interviewed about his 40 year career and why he robbed banks--"Because that's where the money is". You are right about the difficulty in fitting a family of 8 inside a motorhome. I won't ask why you would want to do that I think another poster already mentioned retrofitting a bus. Tough diy work, as you must be at minimum a carpenter, electrician, plumber, and sheet metal worker. Before the economy went sour there were lots of bus conversion companies with some really interesting floor plans and you could end up with a coach that looked like a new Prevost for maybe $300k. Some that didn't look so much like an almost new Prevost for less that that. Google bus conversion. God bless you and good luck.

I did a walk through on a Newmar 3920 yesterday and it will sleep eight with the two drop down queens in the toy hauler garage. I am also looking at the Thor Outlaw 37MD it will sleep ten. So it looks like it can be done. Just limits my options a bit. I am trying to find a Newmar 3921 to check out as well.

Here's a blog about a family with 12 kids living in an RV. You might get some ideas from them. Kellogg Show ยป Living in an RV with Twelve Kids

Why does motorhome decor look like grandma's house? (example pics included)

Also, check Livelyrv.blogspot.com

Don and Misty Lively and their six kids in a 40ft Fleetwood. Met them last fall at Amazon in Kentucky.

That Kellogg family is amazing! What an inspiration!

No idea how they sleep 14 people in a 35 footer. Makes what I am doing seem way easier in comparision. Here is a pic of my crew, except we now have two dogs and our adopted boy is now 18 months and opening every drawer, cabinet, whatever he can get his hands on.

And some of the high dollar ones look like a house of ill repute on wheels. If you every find the answer to your question let me know.

Our rig is "grandma's" house much of the time. I'm sure manufacturers use demographics to decide how to decorate. I think that RVs reflect the same styles and ideas found in furnishing stores for houses at the same time. This is our last RV I'm sure DW will replace things as they outdate and we are still pursuing this lifestyle.

i feel like the used market will be very nice in 5-10 years because of this. Modern touch with neutral colors.

Leather, less carpet, etc..


My mind will be blown if these new designs look dated at that point though hah.
