I can't believe how much better it looked.
And I can't believe how cheap that was - only $75! I did buy Resolve All Fabric cleaner today at Lowe's as none of the stores had anything else, including Wal*Mart who usually carries everything. This sofa is heavy and very bulky and hard for us to handle. The thought of loading into the van and unloading it and reloading it..... not going to happen. We removed it to replace the RVs floor. So it's in our outbuilding. The old sofas in the RVs were heavy and good quality, not like the lightweight flimsy ones of today that the average woman can handle on her own.

I think if it doesn't come clean with the shampooer and Resolve, I'll buy a nice washable throw cover for it and leave it as it is since there are no stains, just the faint discoloration, a grayness from years of dust. Oddly enough, this is a rig from 1993 and the sofa and dinette seats and backs show no wear. From what I see it looks like the people who had it before us mainly used the bedroom, shower and toilet.

Thanks for all your ideas on the subject.

Can you gain access under seats? The cushions may be stapled to a sheet of ply attached under seat. The cushions half to be removable as somebody built the booth

The sofa has the original cushions and heavy duty covers. Yes, they are stapled to some kind of heavy steal and wood frame. The whole thing would have to be dismantled to get the covers off. I doubt we'd ever be able to get them back on correctly if we took them off.
