I have not seen them but understand that the Jayco Eagle has them as an option.

Not really, wasn't very popular 15 yrs ago when I was looking to buy a RV, matter of fact, can't recall seeing any in white at the RV shows I went to.


You may not have seen them yourself but white interiors were all the rage in the mid 2000s, with several manufacturers going that way. Friends of ours owned a Starcraft Antigua 305QBS and it was all white cabinets, sure didn't care for it myself, but fortunately the trend only lasted a couple more years then was gone. Good riddance.

"Trendy" is the term and the issue with "trendy" is, well, the "trend" eventually dies out. Trendy also has an ugly habit of coming back from the dead but once again to die out..

There is usually pretty good reasons that this happens, that pix is a good example, it looks like, well, a STERILE ENVIRONMENT, A DOCTORS OFFICE, A CLINIC OR EVEN A OFFICE CUBICAL.. Not much color to work with to balance all of that white just looks unnatural.

White can be good IF applied with pops of WARM natural colors but that pix is a buzz kill to me, looks like a mobile doctors office..

Like I mentioned before, IF you must have all white cabinets and you cannot find the floor plan or trailer of your dreams with white cabinets $30 in WHITE PAINT and a weekend of your life can easily turn beautiful wood grain cabinets into the sterile white landscape of your dreams..

I actually like the white interiors ... as someone said earlier, it makes the whole inside look and feel bigger and brighter. The thing is, how do they make it 'white'. If it's a quality laminate it's probably fine.

We bought a FR 2603 in 2008 with the white interior. Loved it ... but the cabinets were all made with a kind of iron-on film ... 'know what I'm sayin'. It was good for a couple of years and then the film started to ripple at quite a few of the joints and some of the film actually peeled-off. Disappointing!

So .... all I'm saying is to check the basic materials. If it's that thermo stuff ... I recommend you avoid it. Cheap as they make them, the stained wood cabinets and frames might serve you better.

Cheers,

Very much the go here in Australia, goes with the pop out large windows to allow light in the interior

Fun Finder X used to have white cabinets and interior.
I don't even know if they are currently being made in any color.


We have a 2011 Fun Finder 210WBS. It has white cabinets. Wife and I both like them. The light cabinets make the interior brighter. They also make the camper seem roomier. White cabinets are popular in stick and brick houses so why not in campers too? If you want white, keep shopping; there are a few choices out there.


Yes, I agree with this. Although we already had a new travel trailer with standard cherry-finish cabinets, we were impressed with how light and roomy the white interior made the Fun Finder. Many lower end trailers don't have many windows or have very small windows and are naturally dark on the inside. The white cabinets and trim made it look much brighter.

I don't quite understand the commonplace dark wood finish cabinetry in RVs and all the other complementary dark-ish earth tones. Along with the typical small windows (and some are now tinted), it makes interiors rather dark. You're supposed to be going camping and roughing it, not camping out in your fancy kitchen at home.

Basic white looks too clinical. Why not an off-white/cream color or light tan? Some colors might look good too. And some lighter colors in furniture, window trim, etc. instead of dark brown.

Seems to me that RVs are designed top to bottom by men. Imagine the difference if they had female trained interior designers doing not only the interiors but along with designing various features too.

My wife has said many times that there must be no women on RV design teams.
We looked years ago at a FunFinder with white cabinets. Recently saw a Winnie with off white cabinets. We liked both for the brighter interiors. I would have no problem with well built and finished white cabinetry.

Our shadow cruiser had white cabinets, and we actually liked it , made it nice a bright in the trailer without turning on the lights during a sunny day.
Our new to us airstream has oak cuboards , but they will be white soon.
