We have the textured Stratus stripe fabric and it's tough as nails. Although it slips a very little (I might try the muslin for the dinette cushions-thnx Paula) we've had no other issues, and we have three dogs, and the frequent clueless visitor. No coffee spills, but lots of sand, grit and the general camping detritus. We had to special order the fabric for all the seating or we would have had to live with a solid beige non-textured fabric that would clearly be doomed early on.

And the cleaning thing? Carol, you've got to be kidding. Even leaving the covers on the foam cushions doesn't make sense! And of course the crummy instructions can't mean that you actually clean them in place. Can you imagine the mildew/mold issues? Blecchh.

Its got to be an error, roof debris, inside? Nutty manual, probably farmed it out to be printed. I really like that stratus stripe so pretty and feels so cushy, pictures don't do it justice.

Millvalleyca the ultraleather (vinyl) wipes right up and seems to wear well except for the slipping. I use those leather/vinyl cleaner premoistened sheets that pull out the top and it goes right through the dirt and shines and protects them, though just wiping with a damp cloth would take care of it. Had kids eat chocolate cake and it was a breeze to clean up and the pet hairs and dirt wipe off. I had thought I missed the nappy upholstery but I have grown to appreciate the easy care. But slip covers are always fun if you see what you like and feel like a change.

FWIW, back in the 04 model year, we opted for the "Spice trader" fabric scheme. If I recall, it was about a grand for the upgrade. The fabric is very stout. I have not seen the others that were available at the time.

Attached are some shots of the material. I will warn you that the pics were that of the day I went to pick up the Safari, just off the line by say a week. There was a leak, later found in the wheel well that cause it, but that's a whole different thread. This one is to show the spice trader fabrics.
