The Muslin just lets the outer shell it be a 'slip' covering....

Thanks for information. Our cushions don't have anything between and I am also thinking of eventually trying a cover. It sounds like that would be a real benefit to add and perhaps be a good practice pattern. I know the covers shift around terribly from the edge seams as we pull the fabric forward from sitting on them.

How do you keep the cushions in place? Are they loose laid or are they affixed in some way? With so many pieces in the FB they shoot all around. One of my cushions has a velcro strip sewed onto it but there is no velcro on the bases or the other cushions. I was thinking of using the industrial self adhesive velcro on the bases and possibly the bottoms of the cushions that are not reversible as the contour shapes. Sewing the velcro on seems like a bigger deal but perhaps the better solution? Does anyone use elastic and a hook at the rear as some couches do?

I just reupholstered my cushions and came across gray vinyl like they use school buses. Looks kinda like leather but a lot more practical and durable. I have some leftovers for sale. I bought a huge roll. Click image for larger version

Dinette cushion covers for 19' bambi

These will probably not work for your cushion needs. But I have a set of original fabric cushion covers for all later model 19' trailers including safaris, Bambi's, And flying clouds. Any trailer with the same front dinette layout. These are in excellent condition with no visible wear. The foam is not included but is the standard foam which I believe is 4". They are listed on the parts for sale in classifieds for 450.00. With pictures. We just changed our decorating color scheme and the fabric and labor was $1000.00. Call me with any questions you may have. I will guarantee them to fit and be as described. This is a great set for the price. New ultra leather from AS is 1643.00 plus shipping and tax.
