I can't understand why any manufacturer would not install laminate flooring and LED lighting
Unless I am mistaken, Allure is a vinyl product, not a laminate. Laminates do have some drawbacks in RVs. In some cases, water can seep into the seams and cause damage. It may be heavier, too.
As to why they don't all use a hard-surface flooring material and LED lights
, the answer is cost (see post #14). Some people (like yourself) care, but apparently not enough do for an entry-level manufacturer like Scamp
to make the switch. They seem to be able to sell as many trailers as they can make right now, so there isn't a huge incentive to change anything. Frankly, mine came with the standard carpet and incandescent lighting
, and I haven't felt a great need to upgrade. A large throw rug covers most of the carpet, so clean-up is easy, and a small group 24 battery
keeps our lights
on for the shorter duration of our outings (3-5 days).
At least Scamp
offers vinyl flooring as an option. It would be nice of they did the same for LED lighting.
