Sofa bed

We have a 2001 National Dolphin 5332
The sofa bed is getting worn. We would like to keep things as original as possible. Can anyone tell me how to restore or where I can get a replacement sofa.

We reapolstered our sleep sofa with the help of a friend who worked in the trade. She said it was one of the most difficult projects she had ever done because itís not built as a normal sofa is. It cost us about $350 for materials. Labor would probably be at least that much or more. Is your sofa really that comfortable to try to save it? Might be worth putting that money towards a new one. We have an 02 Seabreeze.

Thank you for the suggestion.
I have been asking for quotes and I got 600.00 dollars labour plus materials. I find that too expensive. Do you have any suggestions on where I can purchase another one?

We opted for this IKEA sofa bed. Seems comfortable and fits on our slide platform https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S19197662/

So far so good but I havenít slept on it yet.
