Driftwood vs maple

Is the optional Maple finish (upcharge) a higher quality wood than the Driftwood?
Our local dealer only has maple finish on his lot, but the wife and I kind of like the look of darker wood we have seen on-line and in brochures. However, we cannot tell if the Driftwood is a cheaper looking finish than the Maple. We also like the wood plank looking floor. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thank you,

I don't think either wood? will be "High Quality" just different "Finish"! I also doubt the Maple will be Hard Rock furniture grade or the Driftwood was found along a Shoreline! Youroo!!

FR does not use "wood" in their campers. It is a printed photo. Just FYI.

I spent the afternoon wiping three days worth of rainy weather road gunk off from our trip up the Columbia River Gorge last weekend. I really like Aero Cosmetics Wet or Waterless Car Wash.

I also corrected a flakey connection to the limit switch on one of my Bigfoot jacks after welcome guidance from the manufacturer.

Brought FW to house today to try to make a bit more progress on the interior painting project. Hoping to get the new furniture inside by Sunday.

Would love to see photos of the interior painting that you're doing.

I rarely go "there".......but had a gift card.....so.... Got rid of the flimsy plastic toilet seat that was on my Dometic Throne (toilet). Replaced it with the wooden one that Cramping Whirrled has on sale. Much better ride! Now, if I need to sit on it with the lid closed, I don't feel like I am going to cave in!

No where near finished. This is not an easy project. I suppose I could've slapped some primer and paint on the cabinets and called it a day, but decided to remove all the doors and drawer fronts, sand and spray primer and paint. With 54 cabinet doors and drawers combined! Using oil based, with 24 hour recoat times, this project has really gone way longer than expected. Also, who knew that mosquitos are really attracted to the smell of a freshly painted door .

We are repainting cabinets, walls, trim, ceiling and table & chairs. Replacing valance fabric and day night shades. Replacing sofa and recliners with Loveseat sofa bed and couch/ottoman. Replacing RV fridge with french door residential. The plan was to replace main carpet with vinyl plank, but we think now that we'll just replace existing linoleum with the plank and keep the carpet.

Our Cardinal originally looked like this. Lots of "wood".





It all started with the picture below. We (the wife) wanted to do a coastal "inspired" theme, while not going over the top.



And then the furniture arrived. And wall color choices had to be made.





Hopefully all turns out well. It was either remodel what we already own, or spend $80k on a new fifth wheel.

Thank you,
The plank flooring is a nice looking vinyl, (not wood) but you probably knew that. The maple is solid wood on the cabinet fronts and trim. There is a darker color wood option for the cabinets also.
