Different colors...

... What's up with some of the manufacturers putting different colors of wood stains, countertops, and so on in trailers? The top of my list is a Winnebago Ultra Lite. I have looked at several online that has a nice color wood stain in part of it and a putrid gray tone in the kitchen area. Such a beautiful trailer except for that. Also, I've seen the island countertop in a nice light color and the countertop next to the stove is black... ... I just can't figure that one out. Grand Design is doing a similar thing in that the island is very dark, but the rest is a lighter stain... Am I just behind the times? Is this the going trend? I'm thinking I'm going to pull the trigger just after the first of the year... but...

Have you seen them in person or are you looking at the web site? The Ultralite photos on the web look like the difference in wood could be caused by the photo lighting, or some not-very-good retouching. Those photos don't look completely natural to me.

The overall level of interior design in RV's sure seems to be weak. I suppose Elkhart isn't exactly a magnet for up-and-coming artists.

One of the manufacturers should partner with a design outfit like Martha Stewart (or somebody more current). I'd think branded interiors designed outside the industry would be an inexpensive way to differentiate.

The Grand Design contrasting island stain looks nice in person. I've also seen in DRVs and other brands too . Its definitely an "in-thing". The problem with being "in" is it can quickly become "out". Just look at old campers. Fortunately, my old camper has a neutral fabric color and generic "oak" cabinets.

It doesn't look that nice to me, CW... I understand exactly what Jack and Dee are saying. I am very old fashioned and can not change.

Yep, they're using 2 different stains. One is called "Delight Maple" and the other is "Driftwood". However when I inquired I was told I could get it in the maple throughout, but not the driftwood. On stock trailers, they're mixed. That doesn't make sense to me but again... that's what I was told. I did look at the Grand Design in person, and the different stains do kind of go together... so it's OK. The different stains in the Winnebago just don't look good together, to my taste, anyway.
