Lounge and Dinette Cushions

I thought all of you could use a good chuckle today.

My trailer has the cream color leather like cushions in it. About a week ago the wife and I were looking at a new color of cushion that Airstream offers in the new units as an option , it's called Espresso.
After seeing pictures of it, we thought it might be a cool idea to change out the cushions with a set of the new color. In other words, keep both colors of cushions and swap them out when the mood hits us.

I priced the new cushions with a couple of Airstream dealers and then at the company store in Ohio because I just couldn't believe the price.

Remember, these cushions are only "leather like" material and foam.

Drum role please.....

$5,236.70 and that does not include shipping or taxes.

All I can do is laugh!

My trailer, the Praline Queen, has the golden ultraleather lounge with the praline fabric dinette cushions. Well, with a couple of rug rats, it's a no-brainer that we really need the ultraleather on the dinette.

When I was at Colonial a couple of weeks ago, I asked about the swap. They said they just did that for another customer and it was "several thousand dollars." I told them not to even waste their time looking up the actual figures.

But yeah, NUTS!

I think we'll just buy a few yards of ultraleather and either have an upholsterer make the new covers, or my wife will do them herself with her Singer.

it's expensive

I had my goucho re-foamed and new material, sewn on zippers, total $2.400. Beautiful, worth it, but expensive. John

I did pay attention in Home Ec ... Except, I chose to make a pretty purple mini-dress instead!

Our dinette was the "willow" pattern. It was ok, a nice shade of green, but we wanted a leather look. We have the ultra leather sofa and decided to redo the dinette. This is from '09, but total cost to re-strap dinette benches, redo cushions in a basket weave "leatherette" material ( in espresso!!) AND redo the awful fabric on the dinette seat backs, etc, was just under $1500. Pretty good deal we thought. I would love the espresso sofa.

One could probably have them done in real leather for what AS wants for their cushions.
