My 2011 Winnebago Journey Express has contemporary styling, modern earth tone colors, bunk beds and sleeps 8 to 10 depending how many are kids.

That hardware looks great, but I'm guessing it runs more than the $2 per knob that most manufacturers use.

If you really want to get away from the Grandma look, try one of the 2014's and 15's with a Munsters cave theme. Dark, overly ornate wood and hardly any windows.

It kills me to see a sharp, modern-looking class A... thinking wow, this is nice!... and then you click on the inside pictures and it is either 1970 or an antique shop inside there.

My wife and I came to the theory that to maximize profits, they cut manufacturing costs as much as they can after all of the necessary minimum components are installed.

Using gawdy surplus fabrics is one of the ways to do that. If you've ever been to a fabric store, you can see why.

With 8 people the decor and seating is going to take a real beating .
Buy the most suitable layout , then remodel as the kids slowly leave for college ,

I agree. So many nice rigs around until you look inside.
My wife has put her foot down and said she WILL NOT ride in a rv that looks like a flower shop threw up.

If it's not grandma's house then it is like Las Vegas threw up inside the RV. LED light strips under every single surface, cabinets polyurethaned so heavily that every single light reflects off of every single surface like a disco ball and don't forget the porn mirror medallion on the ceiling - lord knows how we can survive on the road without that.

Found a great rv great condition priced decent, but the interior is hideous, thought about offering half the asking price due to the ugly interior Green velour with flowers., and matching scary green carpet

If the high dollar issues were ok, why not buy and redecorate?

This post makes me laugh!
My wife and I said the same thing when we shopped for our first early 2000's class c. She conceded on the first interior that was the most boring. So many were just horrible.
Ours still had the shiny brass fixtures, handles, knobs which we still didn't like...but it was tolerable.
We just bought a 2015 model and it looks great inside!

I'm sure though in 15 years our kids (we are 43 and 41 respectively) will be embarrassed to be seen in our motorhome.

When I was little my grandparents had an Establishment (Dodge, Class C), this had to be in the mid 70s. All I really remember about it was the blue plaid cushions and the 70's wood grain.
