Pete, I agree completely that factory equipment choices are driven by financial factors and showroom appeal, not efficiency. I have seen high-end RVs which have Thin-Lite 12V DC fluorescent fixtures, and their makers promote this as a valuable feature; over a large motorhome, it might represent hundreds of dollars of extra expense. If it won't make more sales, it's not worth spending money on it, and that's just life.

I think of the typical RV incandescent fixture as a placeholder; it works until the owner decides to replace it with something which suits them more (which may be never), and is so cheap that throwing it away isn't financially unreasonable.

OK, that went over my head...
Pete, are you referring to Rich's comment? This thread was closed for a while, but now appears to be open again. I assume that is the "fishy" situation to which Rich was referring, but that's only my guess.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
