Steven Skiller was 19 when he and his mother, Meredith, started upholstering furniture and making automotive seat covers in their garage. That small beginning in 1981 led to a family business. Countryside Interiors now occupies a full block in Junction City, Oregon, with a 7,500-square-foot building and a complete RV remodeling center.
Today, Steven, his mother, and son, Joshua, all work in the family business, with over 100 years of combined experience updating, repairing and innovating the interiors of motorhomes and travel trailers.
The company has been doing complete RV remodels, installing carpet and valances, recovering sofas and cushions, and putting in captain’s seats and chairs, since 1985. The quality of their work led Monaco Coach to ask Countryside to create custom dash covers for its production line in 1987, and Countryside continues to perform work for Monaco today.
Joshua said, “Countryside Interiors is equipped to do everything from repairing a chair to revamping the entire interior of a trailer or motorhome. We can do just about anything to the interior from the headliner to the floor.” Countryside replaces flooring, cabinetry and shades, and upholsters and supplies RV furniture.
Over the years, the company has introduced a number of new products to the RV industry. It was the first to sell Ekorness Euro chairs, Palliser Euro chairs and Best recliners for RVs.
Countryside Interiors began selling Flexsteel RV furniture in 1990, and does warranty work for both Flexsteel and Villa. Joshua said the volume of work requires the company to stock a large inventory, so it is likely to have the right part on hand when the customer needs it. A large showroom also enables Countryside Interiors to offer a big selection of sofas, chairs and captain’s seats, including a full line of value-priced power and non-power love seats and recliners from Flexsteel and Best.
Joshua said some popular remodeling projects today include cabinet modifications to make room for wide-screen TVs, replacing foam, wood and tile flooring, and installing remote-control roman shades in fabric.
The business has built a reputation that attracts customers from throughout the U.S. and Canada.

We purchased Theatre Seating and custom woodwork. Most of items were installed November 2018.
The theatre seating is what we ordered with the correct material and options. The original installation wasn’t completed. 5 of the 6 bolts to secure the seating to something secure are in place. So that will have to be fixed. The chair still rocks back and forth.
The custom cabinets are another matter. The workmanship is just poor throughout. 1. The stain doesn’t match any of the current wood cabinets. 2. The front facing on the cabinets don’t match. 3. There isn’t a way to open one of the cabinets except by sticking a knife between the wood and lifting up. Then since the covering for the wires wasn’t installed, the wires are exposed inside the cabinet. The cabinet is also about an inch to long since a floor wasn’t installed. You can see through the bottom. It also isn’t square with the wall or molding installed. Basically just useless. 4. The extra piece of plywood that was installed, it appears to be stained matched correctly, it was just placed over the top of the current wood so that changed the appearance of the corner and the staples are visible. 5. In fact, plain wood is showing that hasn’t been stained in one of the cabinets. 6. The L brackets on both cabinets are on the outside and not the inside and are a couple of different colors.
The cabinets were very poor workmanship, installing and crafting.
This was not a professional installation nor was it even close to being factory installed. The cabinetry is totally unacceptable and the seating isn’t totally secured.
