Default Interior: Wood Grain Cabinets vs. Antique Ivory Cabinets

So we just ordered an F-242BDS sight unseen. When it came time to choose the color of the cabintry, I ran into a brick wall. Fun Finder has two choices: Wood Grain and Antique Ivory (white). The dealer does not have a 242BDS for us to view. They have other Fun Finders, but only ones with the wood grain interior. The dealer is advising me that Cruiser RV sells 95% of their models with the wood grain cabintry and only 5% with Antique Ivory. They are advising me against Antique Ivory in a big way. Personally, I like the look of Antique Ivory cabinets and tend to lean more towards that contemporary look. I would also imagine that the interior would be brighter. I do not want them to look "cheap". Does anyone out there have the Antique Ivory cabintry in their Fun Finder? How do you like them? Any advice on which one we should go with?

Default Dirt

I have ivory -- it shows dirt. It is lighter in appearance than wood grain. I replaced most of the cabinets anyway with baltic birch plywood -- the stock cabinets are made of MDF covered with vinyl, very heavy and bulky. Plus I wanted to reconfigure the storage.

We have the ivory, makes the interior much brighter and cleaner looking.

Default Antique Ivory

Our camper has what I assume is the antique ivory. We love it! It is a lot brighter inside than wood grain, and we have not had a problem with it showing dirt. Also, I would question the statement that 95% of campers come with wood grain as we have seen lots of them with the antique ivory. Maybe the ivory was more common on campers built a few years ago.

Don't worry about what others like...it is your decision and you're the one that will live with them; pick what you like! That's why they have "options"

Personally, the DW and I prefer the "look" of real wood and not the somewhat "retro" look of the white or antique ivory. We both feel that wood grain has a "richer" look with the grain of the wood (even synthetic) showing. Feels "warmer" to us, less "cold" or "institutional" than the white. We both came from a medical background where everything is white or stainless...probably one of the reasons we see the white furniture as "institutional". But, that's just us; lots of folks out there like the white and that's cool, too!

Thanks to all that responded so far. Good point about it looking "brighter and cleaner" looking. Several of the responses I received went something like "the white looks better than the wood grain, but not in a camper." That didn't make much sense to me, so we chose to go with the white.

Default white cabinetry

My cabinets still look amazing, also, I found in doing a mod to back of dinette a perfect match paint "french vanilla". The only placei I see dirt show up fast is along the inside edge at the floor so I keep pop ups of all purpose claening wipes on board it make quick work of it. Also when not using my camper from day one, I would hang a damp rid in shower...keeps excess moisture away and leaves the trailer so fresh smelling. Enjoy your campnhouse.

When you get your unit, it would be nice of you to post how pleased you are with your decision.

Great idea. When I get the new camper, I'll post photos and share my thoughts with the forum.
