Time to bite the bullet and put new in the old!

I have an 87 290 class A with a depressing brown couch and barrel chair that are well stained! Tried and tried to remove the stains but no joy! Does anyone have a good site I can order new couch/jackknife bed and chair from? I've been looking and haven't found much!

It will probably be easier and cheaper to get the existing stuff reupholstered. At least get some prices before you jump into new stuff....

You could spend crazy amounts of time trying to find replacements, when there are probably lots of ways to get it reupholstered- new covers and new stuffing, it'll be clean and not scary. I had ours upholstered, and it was great because I could specify the type of foam (the upholsterer will be able to provide choices) and I could find my own fabric. I found a bolt of something cool at closeout and had the whole thing done. There are people who do this as a hobby, maybe time better researching that than finding replacement units, and with a far better end result. Cheers

agree - reupholster

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
