I have looked at many different truck conversions but one thing i have noticed is that none of them have very nice interriors. That is one of the reasons that is holding me back from buying one. Any Comments or ideas please add!!! Thank you.

Describe "very nice". Do you mean as in tastfully very comfortable, or do you mean "Early Bordello" with mirror-lined walls and ceilings, along with crushed velvet upholstery (Elvis would have liked it) and crystal chandeliers?

The guys from Triton Motorcoach are doing yacht style interiors I believe.
They are reachable at Tritonmotorcoach@att.net

Somewhat off topic here, but why are the level seat cushions shown in the picture curved instead of straight?

What purpose does it serve?

I know its a bit late as it seems you have bought the Haulmark already. i too have marveled at how poorly designed Conversion and motorhome interiors are. I'm an architect and i got so fed up wioth the choices of interiors that i started a company to bring what I think is good design to the industry. Now you may not agree with me but check it out anyway. No oak! No vinyl floors! No carpeting, No tacky forest print paneling. And no cooktop that rattles all the way down the highway. When you get totally tired of the deisgn in your new haulmark call us and we'll re do it for you.

LOL!!!! It's the Ikea RVea...

Definitely different, I like it but not sure I'd buy one that way - then again I kind of like the oak myself.

That's the difference between us and the other manufacturers If you like Oak you should have it in your coach and we'd build it that way. But if you don't you're SOL or you have to put up with oak stained to look like maple....or is it "honey maple". The larger manufacturers have so few choices. Because of high fuel costs and the light weight of our own dragster, I'm building the next unit for myself on the hightop long wheelbase sprinter. 22+ mpg. Once done I'll see if there is demand for it. That space is filling up with Airstream. Leisure, Waldoch etc but I'm shooting for a price point of 65K.10-15 less than the others.
