You might try looking at who made your seat. They might sell a kit you can slip another cover on.

I Just ordered new skins from Flexsteel for my '08 Monaco front seats. I selected Ultra Leather material which priced at $375 driver - $395 pass USD. They made them to order and shipped in 10 days. I was also able to add a manual footrest for the passenger seat for $135. I should receive them this week and look forward to checking them out.

You can go to their website flexsteel.com and search under RV for current offerings. For my '08 seats I contacted the RV service advisor Lisa Bauer and she assisted with materials and pricing.

Good luck with your project.

Highly recommend Palacios Upholstery, speak to Jesse. They reupholstered both the drivers and passenger seat(s) in our Motorhome. Quality workmanship at a fair price

Mason Dixon, would you elaborate on the "skins"? Are they basically like slip covers? It looks as though you should have received the products you ordered by now. What do you think of them? Thanks.

Hello NINK, I received the new captain chair skins from Flexsteel. They are original manufacturer products made to the same design and they fit exactly like the original material. They are not covers and you have to remove the factory skins in order to install them. I'm working on them now and very pleased with the product and finish. They look like new factory seats. I'll post some pics shortly when I complete the project.

Well here are some pictures of my seats during the install and after replacing in the MH. It took about 1 day to remove and install the new skins on each seat. I added a manual footrest to the passenger seat while recovering it. I ordered it with the new skins from Flexsteel. The project was not hard but you need a few special tools (Hog Ring pliers & Spray adhesive) plus a place to work.

I took lots of pictures as I removed the old material so I could refer back when installing the new material.

WOW, looks great! Thanks for sharing the photos. This might be a bit much for us being that we're full-timers and don't really have a place to work on a project like this.
