Saaayy, Look what followed us home today!

Quick update, The cushions are here!! We just put them in for a Photo or two, but the quality is really high! Very happy with them, the Fabric was our choice, I think they fit the trailer's "Feel" very well! Still need to figure out what to do on the wood just below the bed and benches, might see if I can get the same fabric we used on the seat backs, the stripped ones.

Thanks, Dave and Brenda

Nice look, I like it a lot.

Are the solid colour (blue) cushions a sort of crushed velvet with a geometric pattern in them? I don't believe I've ever seen anything quite like that.

Blue fabric is actually a type of Corduroy with a different line pattern in it, meaning not typical stripes, if you know what I mean.

Here is a close up Picture of the material.

Very nice trailer! Did you replace the foam in your cushions as well? Did you purchase the material and cover the cushions yourself? That is on our list of things to do.

The fabric has a retro feel to it. Well done! Cool pattern.

Yes, we bought the Fabric ourselves, then when looking for Foam I found an ad for a Very nice and very talented Lady who redoes cushions, so we got her to sew the covers and get and Cut the Foam. PM me if you need contact info. They are very well done, we are very happy with the Job!

Thanks, Dave and Brenda

Hi Everyone, It has been a while since I have been back. I am trying to get this little guy on the road for the 13th and I need to get a set of Tires, these ones are old and cracking etc. Soooo, The ones on there are 165/70 HR 13's. Should I replace them with similar? Any suggestions on Make and Model?? Best place to buy? Pretty similar everywhere?

Thanks in advance! Dave and Brenda

Tires that you might consider:Finding ST tires in the 13-inch size can be a challenge. I know that in my area, ordering from the Internet is about the only way to get ST tires in anything other than 15-inch sizes.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin

P.S.: The designation HR-13 makes me think that you probably have automotive tires on your coach at this point. This is not a good situation as the sidewall construction isn't substantial enough for trailer use . . . . I tried that once with my 1980 Nomad that used 13-inch ST tires from the factory and the result was not good . . . .

Thanks very much for your input and information!! Very much appreciated! Please explain for me what exactly is needed for trailer vs. Automotive tires? What will I be looking for? I take it they will be labeled ST or Trailer on them? Is the size right? Meaning the 165/70? Or should I be looking for something else?

Thank you again!! Dave and Brenda
