In some shots the surfaces of the cabinets don't seem high end. Look more like builder grade stained plywood. How did they look in person?
I noticed the same thing, especially compared to others out there. The white version looks better and I'm not fond of white.

A few of us seem to have an eye for detail. On that introduction thread a week or two ago; I did not want to be critical, and was seeking some more info, … but it did look like a rushed DIY finish …

We got a few extra photos of the white one, did not hear back on any of our questions.

Luckily, it is not terribly hard to adjust the surfaces if you are making your own. I hope they iterate on their products.

I'm sure @Camping Guy dislikes their ugly carpet walls and ceiling. I'm also not a fan. Upholstery can be expensive both in the materials and time. Mostly a time things. Makes the OEM passenger panels look swanky though. Although, nothing compares to V Class surfaces....and considering you can get an AMG one like the below used for about 75k USD in the UK....

Now, that's proper V-class.

Ever notice, they never show what happens in the trunk area with the seats up or down.

And, I really question cooking something in a van without exhaust ... let alone a premium one!

Maybe my van life would be a mixed duty metris: cargo trunk, entertainment and office in the middle, towing a tear drop for sleeping with outdoor kitchen ... both with a roof rack, etc ... :D
