What do you think of the glass door on the 2021 RP 171? And the white faux wood finish vinyl on the particle board cabinetry? Or the polka-dot graphics? Curious.

Welcome! Have you purchased or are you considering a purchase of one?

Glass door? Not really a fan of it. I have not seen one up close though. I just have my doubts about the durability of it. Faux wood finish? Sometimes, the faux finishes can look pretty good. Most kit furniture is made that way. I'm not a fan of particle board because if it does get wet, it tends to disintegrate. As for the polka-dot graphics, I think I would prefer them over the rings, but not as much as the graphics on our 2016 179.

I think the glass door looks cool. I also haven't seen one in person. I do fear it getting broken, so I really don't want it, but it looks cool. I also absolutely hate the front windows they are putting in. Just one more thing that can leak, let light into your eyes, or draw cold or hot (seasonal) right over the bed, and ofcourse, get smashed driving down the road (a growing/common complaint). The polka dots will take some getting used too. I hated the gray when it came out, now, I like it more than the others.
