RV Design Trends for Latest RV Models
Lighter interiors – Ian says that the days of dark wood interiors are on the way out. RV customers have been asking for lighter interiors and updated design in RVs for years and manufacturers are starting to listen. In newer models, you’ll see lighter wood interiors and more clean, open spaces.
Stylish upgrades – The show Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines has incredibly influenced home design across the country, but their farmhouse style influence has also started to spread into the RV industry. In some newer models of RVs, you may even find barn doors and faux shiplap.
Solid steps – You know those flimsy steps that shake whenever you get in and out of the RV? Well those are on their way out too. Newer RVs have solid steps that add a bit of extra weight, but a lot of stability.
