Seat Covers

I bought some at Camping World that I am very happy with. Cost approx. $75. The important thing they cover the tattered seat bottoms. I posted a picture earlier to respond to Senior Chef and for the life of me I can't find it in my pictures. I like what I'm seeing.

Lana!
Thanks so much -- I actually found your reply to that thread and a picture of your seat covers.
They look great! I'm glad to hear you like them. Do all the seat controls fit through the sides, or did you have to make some holes?

Thumbs up

Doesn't that just change the whole look of the place?

I find it hard to believe you didn't fall in love with that late '80s "dusty rose" dead-possum pink laminate though .

When I was shopping for RV's I saw sooooo much pink!
Because of my price range, I was looking predominitely at the 80's.
Lots of pink, lots of teal, lots of country blue.

At least these countertops were easy to change! I bought the Rustoleum Countertop paint. It went on in 1 coat. Less than $20, and I used maybe a 1/4 of the quart can.

Next is the ceiling. I have a few places where the foam headliner is seperating. Right now I have it held up with thumbtacks -- but my plan is to remove and replace with something new.

The front design looks almost the same as the 1989 Fleetwood bounder. Even the same curtains.

Thanks for the tip. I will use the countertop paint to change mine. I have a 89 bounder with the same pink colors. Does the paint peel? Have you had any problems with it?

Heidi, nice job. And you got it done in no time flat. Will be posting pics of our remodel later today or early am tomorrow (we are heading out around noon on Wednesday for our big adventure). We (Bob - have been working non stop for approximately 2 months on our remodel. Frankly, it looks just like my original vision. and of course, a work in progress. (it just never ends) on top of the work to get everything loaded mother nature has managed to come barreling through with a big storm.

Hi arnpobgyn --

I just painted on Sunday -- so haven't put any wear and tear on them yet.

The instructions recommend at least 3 days before any use, so I am extending that a bit. I don't have any trips planned for another 2 weeks.

It dries to the touch in less than 2 hours. And it looks fantastic.

I highly recommend using a good quality foam roller.
(I tried using a small paint pad on the small sink because of the small area, and I got some fibers from the pad left behind. I had to pick those off, then I just re-did it with the roller. Then it looked great!)

You have 14 color choices. But I found that the color chart on the box is the only way to choose the color! And those were tiny swatches. Its a bit of a crapshoot.
I got lucky with the "wheat" color. Its a very simple nuetral beige.

Lana --

Can't wait to see your pictures!! I just LOVE looking at pictures of interiors!

After my ceiling and floor, I plan on re-doing the exterior stripes.
I ordered the paint already. I went with the Interlux Brightside.

I also ordered some new lampshades.

I'm also going to re-upholster the dinette. No more country blue print.
And I'm most likely going to replace the sofa.

Hi Heidi, awesome work! I so badly want to work on my 1989 Winnebago Chieftain, but it's in Michigan at my in-laws & were in North Carolina where my hubby is stationed. But can't wait, only 2 more months to go and we get to pick her up & hopefully fix it up nice & homey before we head out on the road. =) Keep the pics coming, I'll add some pics of my RV in a new post.
