You will have a hard time finding Flexsteel covers as Flexsteel exited the rv business. You may have to use a local upholstery shop to redo your seats.

Yup they made that announcement last April 2020 what a shame good product.
I would check with an RV flexsteel dealer such as Countryside Interiors in Junction City, OR great company and knowledgeable:

Countryside RV Interiors - (541) 998-6541

There may be some covers around somewhere.

Also seats cannot be repaired? My brother inlaw did a great job with a leather repair kit in his RV

Good luck let us know what you find out,
greg

Seat covers

Oldmarine is right. I worked wit Lisa Bauer when she was at Flexsteel in Dubuque Iowa, this past summer. DID NOT KNOW THEY ARE "NO MORE".

Lisa sent me a pair of OEM seat covers for our '07 Jayco Seneca and they fit perfectly ! Very reasonable cost, and after a you tube visit we slipped them right on. Had to buy a set of hog ring pliers and a box of rings at Tractor Supply. but one or two tries and you are a pro...........

New seat covers

Lisa also provided me with new covers for my Fleetwood. They fit perfect. Not hard to install on your own, Found you tube video on subject. I attached pictures hope they show. Lisa did good work. She can be slow to respond to emails but she will get back to you.

I will bet she can develop quite a business if she wants and can hire others to help her.
Having access to the patterns is a huge advantage.
She could sell patterns if she isn't interested in getting buried in sewing work.

I guess the question is ... what material is being used on the covers.... if it's like the stuff that is peeling, why bother.

todays chair covering material.

Yes the material looks the same and is not supposed to flake like the old stuff. We have covered both front chairs and the dinette. I am told that this new stuff will be ok, I sure hope they are correct.
