Reupolstering seats in motorhome

My 2002 Itasca class A has fabric flex steel driver and passenger seats> I would like to have leather seats. Does anyone know If reupolstering kits are available for these seats or is replacing them the only option.

Perhaps contact Flexsteel and inquire if they make a kit or a local reupolster company.

You could contact Flex Steel and see what they may have as far as a kit or contact a upholstery shop and have them make the leather seat covers you want. Having the pattern of the covers that are on your seats now should be no problem for them to copy them to leather covers or let them be creative and come up with a design of their own. JMHO

Went to a local shop a couple of months ago, and had the Flexsteel power seats done in ultra leather for my 2000 Monaco Diplomat. I removed the seats and took them to the shop. The cost for two seats was $950. They came out beautifully. Good luck

You might contact Winnebago parts. They do most all their soft goods in house unless your unit is older than they have records/patterns for. Otherwise any good auto upholstery shop can fix you up.

We have a much older RV than yours, but we have been faced with the same dilemma. We check to see how much re-upholstering the furniture would be and in the end it was cheaper for us to replace our furniture with new furniture. We purchased ours from www.discountvantruck.com. My in laws also decided to purchase new rather than re-upholster and my father in law even has a close friend that does upholstery.

Check out your local upholsters in the Yellow Pages - they do this all the time but try several and get quotes. Some don't want to do it and overprice - some are keen to get the work and will work with you on budget.

The nice thing is that you can get the exact material that you want - real leather instead of the imitation cack they call 'Ultra leather' - yeah right!

I just had my Boothe dinette, and jack nice sofa done. $3000. I could have bought new for roughly the same price, but then the old stuff goes to waste, and you dont get the grade of fabric, or color you really want.

You might also consider a regular upholstery shop. I had one redo one of our sofa's in UltraLeather. They did a great job and the price was reasonable.

As a newby, I had an auto upholstery replace the navigator seat cushion with ultraleather. He was expensive, and the quality was not quite there. He did indicate he did not do much UltraLeather sewing.
