This unit has been babied and kept in very good shape for being 27 yrs old. Everything works besides the fan above the stove....that was almost a deal breaker

Thank you everyone.

What's easiest and least expensive way to recover the upholstery including the captain chairs, sitting area, and the dinette area?

Yes I will update my signature very soon.

We had a local guy recover both sides of our dinette, the little swivel chair, and the couch with a decent grade of vinyl that looks a lot like leather. It was about $1200 for all of it, and included new foam. We left the captains chairs to cover at a later date, but we never got to it, as there were other "complications" that we endured with our RV.

Here are a couple pics of the new upholstery... we also tore out all the old carpet and hardwood flooring and installed some engineered hardwood that we had leftover from our house remodel. It's not as durable as something like pergo cause it's kinda soft... but it's what we had.

-cheers

Your new ride looks like it has a bunk that pulls down over the front seats? Those are awesome!! We had one of those on our 1976 allegro when I was just a pup, and I absolutely loved crawling up there to sleep...

Very nice! Personally, I wouldn't reupholster anything if I didn't have to. We have the same fabric in our 91 and just love the retro look. But each their own and I hope you have as much fun with yours as we do ours. Happy Trails!

I have plans on putting new flooring down, changing out the dinette to a sofa, do something with the wallpaper, and dress up the cabinets. We or I shoud say my wife just wants to modernize it some.

What a great find Todd! Looks to be in really great shape! Are you planning to use this one just for tailgating too or is there some camping in your future as well with the upgrade?
