Angry Dash Board Cover

I just want to warn any of you that have visited Dash Boards by Josie thinking you might want to order one of her covers. I did, and was not pleased. They required the make, model, length and vin # of my RV, which I provided. The cost for this cover was very pricey but I thought if the pictures on their website are an indication of the quality, then maybe it would be worth it. This was billed as a custom cover, so it took about 6 weeks to receive it. When it arrived and I opened the box, my first thought was "What is this thing made out of"? Very flimsy, light weight, much like a table place mat. Nothing to hold it down on the dash and about 6 inches short. This is what you get for $400??What a disappointment.
I called and left a message, twice. A very nice lady finally returned my call and apologized for their mistake. She offered me two options, remake the cover or a refund. I chose the refund and was told they would process the refund after they received the cover. I sent the cover via FedEx and they received in at their office in Brighton, MI on 9/20. I received my refund on 10/21, over a month. Not a happy ending!

Thank you, you just saved us $400, we were considering ordering from them, two turn-offs for us, flimsy and too short. Sounds like they would remedy it, but you had a long wait and hate the hassle of doing things twice.

I ordered one of their covers in August based on a recommendation from friends who are pleased with theirs. Both units are Class A DP so not the class C standard dash. Took about two weeks to arrive, fits quite well and is held in place with Velcro. Since the supplied Velcro is the stick on type, it doesn't stick very well to the back of the cover. Starting with a little contact cement, then the Velcro solved this issue. As to the weight of the material, it's certainly not a piece of carpet but is relatively heavy. Probably a 1/4 inch thick counting the nap. Ours stayed in place for a couple thousand miles before I got around to fastining it in place with the Velcro.

I have Josie covers on two different class A coaches and have been pleased with both installations. They are not made with shag carpet, however I don't care how thick they are as long as they protect my dash from UV! Both fit well and were supplied with Velcro attaching strips.
Did they have the pattern for your coach in stock or were your required to make a pattern of your dash and send it to them?

I also ordered a Dash Boards by Josie for our Class A. Like Dennis4809 indicated, the cover arrived in about two weeks. The cover provided is made and fits well. I decided not to use the Velcro strips, instead let the cover ‘float’. We are very happy with our purchase.

We also ordered and installed a cover by Josie 2 years ago. At first did not like the wrinkles and fit. After a short while and heat from the sun, it started fitting and now fits like a glove. Dogs love it also.

Dash cover

Go to a quality auto trim shop and have them custom make it. I have done it for two coaches. you can look at dozens of colors and types of material. Thy will custom make it aand fit it the way you want it. Each time it was less than $250 and a beautiful job.

Check out "Wade RV" located at Lazy Days in Florida. They have made me two dash covers that are quality and fit like a glove. They also made front Bra and entrance and step mats all professionally done. Bra $599 dash cover $250, Entrance Mat $300 including install

I also ordered and installed covers for two different class A motorhomes. I was happy with both. The last one is in a Tiffin 35 QBA and fits good and stays in place. It was exactly what I was looking for.
