Well put me down for one that absolutely hates the new interior. I would not be purchasing a Casita today if this were the only choice, which it is.

I'll take the warm glow of fake wood any day rather than suffering in a camper that's grey. A little poem for ya

I have some friends that freshened up a 2006 Casita with a coat of paint on the cupboard doors, new curtains to compliment the upholstery and duvet cover. Bright! No one says you ever have to stay 'stock.' YMMV

You can describe the new Casita interior with any adjective you choose , mine would be BUTT UGLY . We own a 2013 Casita and if the only interior available at our time of purchase was the gray , we would have walked , no ran away !

Yesterday's brown and today's gray may become tomorrow's soft green. I'd never buy a trailer because I was impressed with the color 'scheme,' when there are so many other factors to consider. YMMV
We get the shiny here in Australia as they so much easier to clean

Yep! Thatís our 2003 Casita that I painted 3 years ago! Donna is right, paint, flooring, and fabric (sorta) is all pretty inexpensive. In fact in the 13 years weíve owned our Casita, Iíve put in two floors, two new curtains, new upholstery, painted cabinets once (so far), and two new ďtileĒ backsplashes.

To each his own, but ALL RV manufacturers in my interior design opinion are WAY behind current style trends.

And yes, all RV makers do pretty lame photography of their interiors. Backgrounds are now just Photoshopped in (poorly) I might add.

I like it. I didn't like those brown swirly colored seats so I made some covers for them in my trailer.

I wonder if the vinyl floor is now standard? The gray and the fake floor look nice together.

Thanks for saving me the trouble of saying the same thing.

I think the new interior looks very nice. Modern, clean and full of place settings!

I really like it and getting rid of the carpet on the floor is a good move too! Shows they are starting to respond to the market. Good!

I kinda like the interior in that any decorative features could be more colorful to give it a pop. It's a starting point. Owners make it their own.

I like the "new" look. Robert did the Nest in the same look a few years ago. Fake wood has a certain appeal too though. Maybe Casita thinks all the fake wood buyers have bought and are after the Nest buyers.

It sure is. I recently saw a house done up like that, different shades of gray everywhere, and frankly it looked pretty cold and uninviting to me. Not as big a deal in a camper, and just my opinion anyway.

Casita Interior Renovation

I acquired an old nasty Casita and ripped out all the interior. I like the warm wood look so I made my whole new cabinets out of quarter inch birch with oak trim. I hated the carpeted walls so I replace them with grass cloth and reflectics insulation. I realize itís an extreme makeover but I was pleased with the finished product

The posts so far validate that tastes differ, and one design does not appeal to all.

I think in general, the RV Industry serving North America has done an awful job with interiors. Updating them to a tasteful design doesn't necessarily mean more modern....it can mean timeless and classic if done thoughtfully. Good design doesn't have to cost more in terms of materials.

Many of the European lightweight trailers tend to have more modern design, but most of them look cleaner with better utilization of space than what we get here.

The Hymer Touring GT is (available here in the U.S) is close to an example of what I'm talking about https://www.gohymer.com/touring-gt-overview/

Al,

That is a beautiful interior.

With interiors, it's not just the "look", it's also the quality of the materials. A picture of wood, glued to a surface, just doesn't make me feel warm, or look like quality, or hold up well to a lot of use.

Your interior is beautiful and extremely well done with great materials. That is a nice place to spend some time. Thanks for the pictures.
