You don't even have to have demo'ed a kitchen. Go to Day 2 of any RV show/expo and you'll see the quality of a typical sticks & staples constructed RV. Cabinet doors drooping, bathroom doors coming off the hinges, countertops delaminating. That was an eye opener for us.
I've built a fair amount of furniture from hardwoods, and so I know cheap vs. quality construction when I see it...but seeing the wear and tear on an RV from people just walking through and opening/closing the doors and drawers was depressing but, ultimately, inspiring too.
