Wow, this thread is still going.
I have since 'upgraded' to a new rv since my last post.
Something I like about the new rv's is pleather/leather furniture. I did not care for the fabric furniture or the way it held stains. Our pleather interior is so much easier to clean and doesn't have tacky flower/tropical/outerspace looking designs on them.


It also appears less and less motorhomes have carpet in them, which is likewise a great improvement. Our ACE is far from a Bentley but today's motorhomes do seem to be fresher in appearance than some of the motorhomes from just 5 years ago.

I wondered the same about decor when we were shopping for our coach back on October. New was not in our budget so we looked at gently used but older coaches and we saw a LOT of strange prints and color combos...none of which we liked and then we stumbled onto a coach someone had remodeled and fell in LOVE. I agree with others...choose the floor plan that works for you and a solid drive train and chassis...everything else can be updated and changed to meet your personal taste!!

I do have to agree about class A interiors. Either designed by old folks or that 1980's polyester shirt wearing, gold chain sporting guy in a disco. What is with those ceiling treatments, rope lighting and sculpted carpeting? The cabinetry tends to be a bit overdone too, far too much scroll work. Give me a basic shaker door any day.

Having been avid RVers for 40+ years, we've gone to a lot of shows, looked at a lot of RVs. My DW has decided that there's a correlation between cost of an RV and it's appearance. She thinks less expensive ones look more like Grandma's house, while the megabuck ones more closely resemble whorehouses (not that she's ever been in one!)

Walking through some of those Prevosts with the mirrored ceilings etc., can't say I disagree with her.

That's hilarious! I see "DW" on here all the time, I am finally going to step up and admit I do not know what this means.... divorced wife?

I would love to ditch some of the wallpaper and all of the carpeting in my rig, just don't want to over invest in it...

DW = Dear Wife. I feel it is an insult. Others don't.

IMO if we stop buying things we dont like we soon will be getting stuff that sells. The world of fashion, cars, furniture seems to be dictated by an unknown group of people called 'experts'.

The term "best selling" is used for books that are not even on the shelf yet. How can a book be best selling if it is not for sale? Go figure??

Least objectionable choice = Best seller to manufacturers more often than not.

That reminds me of a quote from the late Rodney Dangerfield. "I woke up in a mirrored ceiling hotel room and I thought I was being attacked by a nude skydiver."

I don't know, I like the Fleetwood that was for sale in Tx. in one of the earliest posts. 2010 DP with a modern but not overly done look with a heckuva lot of features at an asking price of 125K. Look, its an RV, if you want it to look like a S&B try putting wheels on your home and be done with it.

We've been looking for several years for something we could feel good being in. We looked at travel trailers, C Class and A Class. Through all of the time spent, dealers and showsa gone to we decided on one, and one only that checked all the boxes, and that was the new Winnebago Brave 27B. It has some of the simplistic design and style of an Airstream interior imo. No BS casino looking fabric and detail, and no swirl graphics outside:
