Seat covers - captains and Swivel chairs

I have a 1986 Winnebago (33') and have been searching fruitlessly for seat covers for the two front (captains) and the side (swivel) chairs. There is nothing wrong except that I want a new look. We are trying to do a Sportsmans look. I'm shooting for Mossy Oak or a similar camouflage pattern.

We are on a budget (I have too many hobbies, LOL) and having a set made is not in the cards. It's super expensive and takes too much time. I wanna use this thing, not wait for somebody to cut, measure, sew, re-cut and so on.

Thanks in advance,
Ralph

Some of the larger automotive outfits used to offer various captain's chair covers - haven't looked lately - might try an online Internet search thru Google, etc....

I'd sorta like to do ours as well - like yours, ours are in fine shape, but don't come close to matching or complimenting the rest of our upholstery scheme...

I just did a Google on "RV captain's chair covers", and got lots of hits for covers that would fit the chairs in our '88 Winnie, complete with covers for the swing-down arms...

Here's a sample:

Nope, I found the same sites that I found before. It would almost be easier for me to buy some Regular truck captains seats and cover those and get a couple leather recliners. I was hoping to find some camo covers.

All the seat covers I've found online do NOT cover the back adequately, much less the skirts.

We're going to bite the bullet and get some nice leather captain's chairs at Colaw's Salvage when we next pass through Missouri.

Why not have them recovered at a Goodwill Industries Service center? Cheaper than buying all new chairs.

Call any goodwill, DAV, School for the disabled and simply ask if they do upholstery work. We had a recliner done in Lawton, Oklahoma. The man that did the work was totally blind and was also completely restoring a MG convertible in all leather. The end product of our recliner and the MG was better than factory for less than 1/3 the cost! Most larger communities have training centers for all walks of life just start calling around! May even consider a Job Corp service center as they train young folks under 26yo in all types of jobs.

Good idea. That would mean me having to go to the City though. I hate cities. I'm a small town mountain man.

But I'll call tomorrow and see
