I blame Ricardo Montoban...Fine Corinthian Leather

Honestly other than being able to say it's leather, it's about as bad as vinyl.


It was all in the delivery!
Corinthian leather was the lowest grade and normally deemed too thin and flawed for furniture. It was mostly used for gloves.
Until Ricardo smooshed us.

Replaced the (2) cloth recliners & sofa with items of my choice.

Also - replaced the dining table (& 4 cloth covered chairs) w/ more "functional" items.

All "replacements" were within the first year of ownership.

*If* I was purchasing again, I would at least *attempt* to purchase without those items - and replace with MY preference.

Of course, you can spec order a New Horizons (and/or?) with interiors of your choice - factory direct.

There was no such thing as "corinthian leather". It was pure marketing.

From wiki: Corinthian leather is a term coined by the advertising agency Bozell to describe the upholstery used in certain Chrysler luxury vehicles. The term first appeared in advertising in 1974. Although this is merely a marketing concept, it suggests that the term—not the product—was inspired from the more elaborate and impressive ancient Greek column of the Corinthian order .

On no, I'm in trouble now. The wife found one that she likes. She's always wanted a rear kitchen but also have a nice living area. We looked last night at the new Cougars and she liked the 362RKS.
Nice big kitchen in the rear and living room with two couches. The 81 gallon fresh water tank would be nice in the state parks here in Indiana. At 39'4" it would be a close fit in the barn. We'll have to do some careful measuring of both first.

It’s hard to find one with cloth furniture and carpet. Don’t think the RV industry is interested in us old buzzards anyway. Buy a used trailer and put in what ever you want, the savings from buying used will more than pay for it.

Much prefer cloth furniture but would rather not have carpet. Throw rugs are easier to clean and if they get damaged/stained, it's easy to replace.

Well looks like we might be putting the new camper on hold. The company we work work for announced cutbacks and layoffs are coming. The current camper is paid for so and actually is quite nice. We'll just keep enjoying it for now.
I think we'll dress up the interior with some new flooring and maybe replace the two chairs in the rear with some euro style recliners.

Everything happens for a reason..

Good Luck to you both

The leather they are installing is not really leather. It's bonded leather, little pieces of leather glued together. Guaranteed to fall apart in 5 years. When ours falls apart I'm getting cloth furniture.

I love my cloth interior and no one will ever convince me to change.
