Tiffani looks great! Enjoyed your website. We are in the middle of redoing the entire inside of our "78" Ambassador. Had the gaucho recovered in ultraleather but will be doing the rest of the upholstery and drapes ourselves. Did you make drapes for your AS? I'm concerned about sewing my fingers together (being a man with no domestic qualities). Glad you are enjoying the airstreaming life. We've camped for over 30 years but only 9 months of that in an AS...and as you said, have met some really great people. Stay on...

Bob, Thanks fo the nice words! We did not make the drapes... although I will be adding blackout fabric to the backs so I can sleep a little past dawn, that wont begin until next year most likely. The drapes are a little tricky, I would guess, because of the fasteners, but easier than slip covers because they're all straight lines! I bet you could have someone that does alterations at a dry cleaner either sew them up for you, or recommend some if you needed help. Also, Ive found the people at my local fabric store a great source of help when I have questions about pleating, etc. If I go in there and explain the issue, they're usually more than happy to help by showing me what Im doing wrong.

Good luck with it, let me know how they turn out!

What a great source of info this thread is - our A/S is brand new, but we're about to make a 2-week trip out west next month with our beagle, who seems to have taken over the "lounge" area. We're considering ordering some of those elasticized seat cushion covers for the lounge and dinette so that we can better preserve our "mint green" Serenity upholstery. Just emailed the Slipcover Shop website a few minutes ago for swatches. Hope something will match!

For foam cushions, go to an upholstery supply and ask to see medium and firm density foam. Anything you buy from say, Walmart, would be too soft. The "good stuff" is expensive, probably close to $100 for a 24" x 80" piece, but it will hold up much longer. If you have a friend who does upholstery, he/she should be able to get the foam for you for about 1/2 price. Oh, and if you need to trim it to size, use an electric knife (Yes, like you'd use to carve a turkey!) - works great!
