Class A furniture- do you know the difference?

Most Motorhomes I've looked at has Flexsteel furniture, at least in the driver and passenger seats. Recently I've noted another brand called "Villa"!

Do you know the brand and is it comparable to Flexsteel?

I know that Villa was the source for a lot of Country Coach rigs. Unfortunately, mine was too early of a birth date to get the Villa treatment.

Well, I know it cost more than our stuff but since I have not experienced the furniture cannot say how good it is.

They have been in business a long time and charge premium prices IMHO so perhaps is it good?

Had Flexsteel in the first coach. It was "ok" but we didn't keep it that long to put a lot of wear on it. Some of the fabric was starting to fray. The CC has Villa and I think it is way better than Flexsteel. Our fabric couch is still comfortable and the fabric is still in good shape.

Doesn't Flexsteel just make the frame and other companies make the cushions and all the rest? Maybe I'm thinking of some other company. . .

Had /have the Villa in both of our Americans. My understanding is that it was an upgrade from Flexsteel. On the original build sheets it was an upgraded option. Having seen the Flexsteel in a lot of coaches while looking for our current coach... Villa is definitely better quality leather & furniture.

Our 2013 Bus came with Villa furniture. The driver and passenger seats are firmer than the Flexsteel. The sleeper/sofa is the most uncomfortable one we have ever owned. No one wanted to sit on it for more than a few minutes. We replaced it with a residential double recliner w/console. Big improvement. I contacted Bob Tiffin and he said they started using Villa because they could not get enough Flexsteel product to meet their demand. He had Villa there at the plant trying to come up with a more comfortable foam density. We put the Villa Couch in our cottage and still no one will sit on it, but it has a nice air bed inside.

edit: If I could find matching Flexsteel Driver and Passenger seats at a reasonable price, I would get rid of our Villa ones. The Flexsteel seats in our son's new Mountain Aire are more comfortable.

Thank you one and all for your comments.

Crasher that must be the "Rock" version of Villa Sofa's for someone not even abel to sit on it. I've sat on some uncomfortable furniture but that couch sounds like the worse! What a bad thing to have for your relaxing time!

And Lisablue85, my wife would like to know what face cream you use? You hardly even look 85! Lisa, I take it your furniture has not been that uncomfortable?

Lol! 85 was the number of the bus I used to drive, many numbers since then. Our furniture is extremely comfortable but we had/have a '99 & an 2001 American. The '01's furniture is a little more comfortable but not by much. My guess would be that Villa, like everybody else, made changes in materials & manufacturing through the years & sometimes those changes aren't always for the better.
