My thoughts too. I have suggested to Reace the use of maple, but others have wanted darker woods like we do in many homes. For inside a trailer, I much prefer something lighter. Though, oak is not that bad either.

I hear what you are saying regarding more of the quality of workmanship, and attention to detail in lots of RVs. I went to the RV show here this year for the first time, and was astounding at the shoddy workmanship. It was like they hired some rookie to use inferior materials to do the finish work. Around slide-outs and built-ins joinery was just terrible. This was just the majority of units, there were some in the $100k and up range that had nice work done in them though.

I have seen that as well Jim, shoddy workmanship on most RVs. When Kim and I visited Chilliwack last September and inspected the Escape top to bottom, we were impressed. We know our stuff as we are re-constructing a house as we speak, a husband and wife team you might say. Overlooking personal preference issues, like wood species and color, we concluded the rig is well made and solid. Placed an order on the spot. Yes a light shaded wood would help a small space look bigger and livelier.

A bathroom sink cabinet like the new Casita 17' deluxe. Very nice looking and I ca store many rolls of tp, toilet tablets, hair dryer, and much more.

Without seeing the new medicine cabinet in the Escape, it will be hard to compare. These pictures look similar to Oliver's set up.
