Portable armrest/with cupholder

I am always looking for ways to improve our comfort while traveling in the MH. I noticed while at an RV show some motorhomes had a portable arm rest with cup holders. They lie flat and slide between the top and bottom cushions on the sofa.(about the size of a center console in some trucks) It probably wouldn't be hard to make, but before attempting that, I wonder if anyone might know of a place or places to purchase? I am sure I could order from the manufacturer but I doubt I would like the price. I'm hoping someone will know a website, or supplier that I haven't found that offers something simular.

We had this made by a local upholstery shop for $125.00. Winnebago wanted $350.00 for one (part number from 2006 Ellipse). This was made with real leather, not the pleather used by Winnebago. A member of our WIT Club brought his armrest from his Ellipse to the upholstery shop so they could get measurements and we supplied a snippet of fabric from our sofa so they could match the color. I think it turned out really nice, and it has plenty of room to store all our remotes!

Gotta_P that looks great! Just what I'm looking for! Would you mind posting the measurments, and maybe even a picture of a side view ? Great idea creating a storage area. The one I saw didn't have that. Trim shop price sounds good, hope I can get a simular deal!

Here are a couple pictures I took with my cell phone this morning before dropping the RV off at the shop to have a Jack looked at. They aren't the best quality, but I added dimensions to one and the other is a side view. Hope these help...

One word of caution: The upholsterer that made mine said he would never make another! So, I truely have a one of a kind armrest! Not sure why he made that statement, but it did take him several months to complete the project and I think he had to re-order the leather twice because he did not like how it turned out. I'm thinking he didn't make a lot on it and thus his decision to not make another...

The dimensions are kind of hard to see in the pic, so here they are:

Bottom Length: 19"
Bottom Width: 12"
Storage area: 12" X 12" X 6"
Cup Area: 7" X 12" X 4"

I should have taken a picture with the top open! It is hinged on the back side.
