Renewing our cushions

Our seat cushions in the lounge and dinette were starting to look a little wrinkled and sagging in our trailer. This is what we did to renew them.

Re: New foam for worn-out dinette cushions

After 11 years, the dinette cushions in our 2005 19' Bambi were getting too soft; and when one sat on them, you sank through to the wooden frame.

Upon removing the foam cushions from the upholstery covers, the cells in the foam were breaking down; so we replaced the cushions with foam we found online.

Vendor's description for the foam we used:
Lux Foam-HQ (High Quality) - Firm foam for regular or heavy use. Lux Foam-HQ is a high quality foam suggested for seats, chairs, cushions, benches and mattresses. It has a typical life of 16 years. (2.8LB /ft3 density with a 50LB ILD)
The new foam is firmer than the old worn-out cushions, and (to us) it is much more comfortable.

Is the foam compressing (loosing thickness) or is the ultra leather stretching ?

Good question, It was probably a little of both. However as you can see the foam actually looks pretty good. I really just needed a little more foam for comfort, I weigh in it at about 260 lb.
