Re-upholstering motorhome furniture

So we traded for this '07 Monaco Camelot 42PLQ with 5900 miles. Bank repo and very dirty interior. Dealer tried, not very hard, to clean it up for us. Wife spent countless hours on the carpet and couches, and the fabric couches defied all efforts and was an ugly fabric anyway. Read a lot of posts on re-upholster vs new and found that most suggested that re-upholstering would run as much as new... Not even close. We went to a custom upholsterer, chose a high end $55 a yard fabric. Hide-a-bed couch, jack knife sofa, two fully upholstered dining chairs, and two upholstered folding dining chairs, cost us $2500. New sofas from Villa, same brand and model as we have go for $4690, and the fabric selection is greatly limited, plus the chairs were not even priced.

Point being, by all means look at re-upholstering vs new cost. You may save big bucks.

If you are in Western Washington and have the need for an upholstery shop, send me an email and I'll share. www.metrocop@aol.com

Agreed.

Stay away from the RV furniture sellers when asking for quotes to redo the existing furniture.

RV suppliers charge a premium.

Local folks will be very competitive in our experience.

Thumbs up

metrocop,

I agree and you make a great point on price and selection.

Just found me a roll of nice tan vinyl to redo my valances to match my dash. I watched how they do this at a shop and feel I can take this one myself. Need to get an air stapler and then take them down to redo. Never did care for fabric that came in coach.

Have you replaced your carpet/floors.

Floor is mostly ceramic tile. Bedroom is all carpet plus a little under the roadside sofa and dining table. Wife has steam cleaned and gone through about 8 cans of Resolve with a stiff brush and it's starting to look clean. I'd not even take on a carpet replacement job, but we did recover the horizontal portion of the valances with same fabric as new dining chair fabric. Just a world of difference. It's just difficult to understand how some folks can be such pigs. Coach on had 5900 miles on it.

Metrocop, By any chance can you show us some pictures? Any before and after?
