The Eagle lineup of trailers has introduced some exciting new interior designs for the 2019 model year. We recently sat down with our Senior Interior Designer, Stacy Stewart, to discuss some of her inspirations.
What makes Modern Farmhouse different from traditional RV interiors?
Its comfy, cozy and has a classic feel. People are just drawn to it.
What’s your favorite element, material or look of the design?
The wood color and style is my favorite. We fell in love with the door the first time we saw it. Also, the mix of rustic, modern and contemporary materials make for a look that more and more RVers are looking for
Where did you get inspiration for the design?
Everywhere around us in today’s world: restaurants, new houses, home re-models, TV shows and shopping.
Why do you think RVers will be attracted to the design?
We love seeing how people make their RV interiors unique, how they add their own personal style. We wanted to do something similar with Modern Farmhouse, by blending the RV industry’s traditional style seamlessly with today’s interior home design trends. Customers and dealers are excited to see this fresh approach.
What did you enjoy most about the process of coming up with Modern Farmhouse?
That you can find ideas everywhere. For instance, we stumbled on the rustic table idea at a restaurant in nearby Elkhart; the barn board table looks great in the Modern Farmhouse unit. Our seeded mason-jar light idea was found while watching HGTV’s Fixer Uppers. We worked closely with our vendors on both of these ideas to make what you see in today’s unit a reality.
Why is this such a big deal for Jayco?
Because we are able to provide RVers with two completely different looking Eagles to choose from. It’s almost like two completely different brands. Modern Farmhouse is more of the look that you’ll see in newer homes everywhere, while American Tradition is a beautiful new take on the classic RV look.
