Cabinet Finish?
Thought I would ask the forum on this;  wife says wood is walnut, I say it is cherry.  Tried to find what wood was used in the owners book, but nothing in there on what was installed.  Your help and expertise is sought after!

Thanks in advance!

If you have your build number the factory ought to be able to tell you.

I have seen 2000 U320s in walnut or cherry.  They were both U320 options in 2000. Cherry will be more red than the browner walnut. Some species of walnut can have some red tint as well. The picture looks like cherry to me.  If you look at the...

Thanks everyone.  I will call factory on Tuesday to verify.
It sure looks like cherry to me as well.
The reason I asked is I want to add a TV cabinet in the slide and theater seats behind the passenger seat.

Without some reference color in the picture it's quite difficult to tell, but my guess would be cherry.

I added a couple pieces of wood to the interior of our U300. Our wood is walnut but others could be cherry. Walnut has a distinctive smell when run through a table saw. Guess this is not an option here. :D

I had a 1999 with oak. I thought that was the standard wood in a U-270

My understanding is that oak was the standard wood used in U270 models of that era.
