thanks a lot everybody for all your replies and ideas.
This helps me quite a lot to gain a better understanding of all the tastes, priorities and backgrounds etc. As I am interior designer of a design studio I always do my best to find the best solution for both style and comfort. Hence it is super important to know why things are as they are and what can be improved.
At our studio we try to create a design which is practical and style-wise appreciated by the customers today. Difficult enough it still has to be in shape for the next 10 to 15 years. We got the buyers in mind wants to have a good price for his RV in case he wants to sell it after some years. Hence things have to be timeless. In terms of timeless design I think Airstream is doing a fantastic job. If there would be the price!
Another thing is the detailing. I think there is a lot of room for improvement. One example is a simple door handle. On my house this is a solid piece of metal and it works properly. Why shouldn´t I have the same quality on my RV?
Some discussions addressed something what maybe can be called "IKEA vs. Amish". I like that discussion. And I like both, the IKEA style traditionally based on a reduced thus cozy design style of the north European countries, but produced in a today´s industrialized way. On the other hand I really appreciate the perfect craftsmanship of the Amish, where all what looks like wood IS wood! Great!
I wonder how a design style will be in maybe 5 years or so. What surely will remain is the demand for functionality and quality. Maybe even more important, comfort! Enough place for the travelers and friends plus tons of storage.
We did our best on the following travel trailers, Class-A and Class-B vehicles. Let me know what you think about the design. (in this cases we made all, outside and inside)

But, if you like them … leave your credit cards in our pockets. Sorry, all not available in the US!
The first Class-B we were working on will be presented end of the year, partly designed in Europe, engineered and all build in North America!
