Light colored furniture/captain's chairs & covers

Looking at the Bounder 35k, some of the interior colors are very light. We have two dogs, and they pretty bad about jumping on furniture.

We're worried about scuff marks showing, or the fabric ripping.

Do people with dogs tend to gravitate to the darker fabric colors, or are people just putting throws or covers on their furniture? Any companies make pet covers that might work for some of the dinettes or couches in Class A's?

The light colored fabrics in the 35K was a deal killer as far as us purchasing a unit off of our dealer's lot. We ordered our 35K direct from the factory with the darker, tan colored upholstery and with two dogs and our full timer life style we are glad that we did. Both of our dogs combined weight is under ten pounds; they prefer their dog bed to our furniture. In my humble opinion, the light colors would be a problem for full timers as well as pet owners.

2 different RV, both had/have light colored furniture.

We have had success using throws on the furniture, easy to take on and off and wash. When they get weathered we just replace the throws.

We now have 2 white faux leather captain chairs in the front, haven't resorted to throws there but we do keep pads on the seat portion.

One of the few things we don't like about our coach is that the sofa and chairs are white leather. Have never been a fan of leather, so we use throws and covers anyway. More comfortable and easily washed. Oh, and the dogs don't seem to mind a bit....

I don't know if something like this would fit the furniture...WalMart sometimes carries a few sizes.

I guess our take is that you're paying for that furniture, why not enjoy it as is?

I know some folks cover their house furniture, too. Why buy new if you're going to cover it up? Just keep your old stuff.

Chalk up another rig with white leather. Although ours is a more off white but still white.
We have a dog and cat that travels with us and We use a comforter on the couch and it works great. Other than that we don't use anything on the seats except to clean them after our trips.

Hey Bigfoot. Traveling with a dog is great! We just throw a couple beach towels on the furniture and enjoy!
