Recently I saw the question posted on facebook, "Can I install a household shower head in an RV" The answer of course is yes. they both use standard pipe fittings as well as the faucets in the kitchen and bathroom. I decided to get a shower head that is not labeled for RV use and see what happens. I was completely underwhelmed, it was just like I had put the factory shower head back on. So now I'm back in the comfort of my oxygenics. Check it out if you have some time!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXr6jFOMVVk
I have way too much time on my hands!!! But another thread, 'RV-Industry death spiral', hit a nerve. Made me think. And too much time and thinking don't always bode well!! We often talk about quality control, features and of course price. That's all well and good. But what about RV design? How long has it been since there has been a change/rethink in the way America RVs have been designed? Come on? Think. Back in the mid 90's slides entered the market. (I'm generalizing). DP's have become more popular but design hasn't changed. Colour exteriors rather than cream or white. But apart from new gimmicks, bells and whistles and some electronics what has changed? 5th wheels are always front bedroom and rear lounge/kitchen. (Yes generalizing again). Motorhomes always have rear bedrooms. Side doors are rare. So where's the innovation? Where is the break from tradition, (read easy)? Look at a few European RVs and see what I mean. Wonderfully creative designs. Curved cupboards. Lounge with panoramic windows in trailers. I could go on and on. But flick through a few of the manufacturers on this link. https://motorhomeseurope.com/625/motorhome-rv-makes-and-manufacturers/ Yes I know different conditions. But why can't some of these ideas be imported/stolen by US manufacturers? And don't say they wont handle the conditions here in the USA. They are doing well in many other parts of the world. Besides you can't complain about the quality of USA built RVs and then turn around and say they are built better than European ones. If the price was 'reasonable'. And if the quality matched the price. Would European features/layouts/size work in the USA? And if not how would you change the design of USA RVs to get them a whole new look and feel. A 1000hp pusher 50ft long doesn't count!!! regards
