Upholstery

I recently got a 19 Ft. bambi Flying Cloud, 2010. The fabric is torn on one of the back cushions that form the seat, where the table is. Anyone know the best way to get replacement coverings for these cushions? Does Airstream sell that kind of thing directly?

Tom,

The first question—is it still under warranty?

If not, you'll probably have to go through a dealer since Airstream only sells a limited amount of things through the company website store.

But, a local seamstress may be able to help you. We have found seamstresses in different places we have lived who do very good work at reasonable prices. Sometimes you can find them through asking friends and neighbors, or they work through a neighborhood store.

If the tear can't be repaired, consider recovering all of them. Our upholstery was ill-fitting, hard to get clean, unlined, and looked kind of cheap (because it was). One was refitted at the factory under warranty. After 4 years, we decided to get them recovered.

We went to a store that was going out business and got a great deal on good quality vinyl in a color that we really liked. Then we took it all to a local seamstress who worked at a clothing store and would do repairs and recovering on the side at a very, very low price. She did good work too. So we had 6 cushions done for around $100. This would be a hard deal to beat, but you get just what you want. If we didn't get the vinyl at a super discount and the seamstress charged what her work was worth, it might have been $300. Airstream's prices can be so high it might not be a bad idea to get something that looks better and is better. We've always found seamstresses through word of mouth, or some work out a clothing or fabric store.

Extra Fabric - Recent Model Airstreams

Our 2008 trailer was out of warranty and we wanted some extra fabric. My wife called the parts department at Airstream. The fabric was no longer in stock at Airstream but the parts department gave her the name of the fabric resource. My wife then contacted a local store that sells upholstery fabric. The store it ordered the yardage directly from the vendor Airstream uses. It was a quick and painless process.
