Very colorful material to make curtains for our RV since I can sew. I can't take the dull dead browns and grays and tans it came with. I feel like I'm in a funeral parlor. Why did they start using these dead colors?

Either that or a marketing study found that the dull colors enticed people to buy motorhomes.

same reason most walls in houses are painted off-white. they are playing the odds that the generally older crowd will like the muted natural colors.

Well, it now seems the last thing we will have bought will be a new locking gas cap if we can find one for such an old darling... Seems hubby drove off with out ours after I ran out of gas coming home from my last adventure....LOL. ( gas gauge doesn't work and hadn't had the chance to get our numbers yet so we knew how much gas it took and how many MPG it got....)

New Banks Power System and installation of such on our 1997 Ford F53 460 CID EFI V8 engine which powers our Hurricane 33SL. And yes there is a very noticeable improvement in performance, pickup, heat and, believe it or not, noise reduction.

You gotta be kiddin' me! I remember when RVs came with such nice colors. China must have had tons of these dead dull colors rejected by furniture and drapery makers they sold for a song to RV mfgs.

Actually I had hoped to find something colorful in pastels, but that couldn't so chose the next best. And boy are these going to be colorful.
