2019 Globetrotter Copenhagen Creme

We "just" upgraded from our 2017 International Serenity 25 to the 2019 Globetrotter with the Dark Walnut wood finish and "Copenhagen Cream" seating...which is truly a cream color. We are curious about how others with this interior do keeping the "Copenhagen Cream" seating clean. We are super excited to pick up this Globetrotter in the next week and we'd love to hear (1) how well it stays clean and (2) and how easy it is to clean if a granddaughter messes up the cushions. Traveling will be 70% just my wife and myself...but we love it when our granddaughters join us. So what is your experience keeping the Copenhagen Cream cushion covers clean?

Congrats on the new Globetrotter! They're beautiful!

This appears to be what your upholstery is. It's called "Hitch" and it's different from the "Ultra leather" in the other Airstream's:

https://spradlingvinyl.com/catalog-patterns/hitch/

Another site with some more info on Hitch:

https://vyvafabrics.com/vinyl/hitch/

Here's the quote from the Airstream website Globetrotter (Design) page online:

"The multi-award-winning European coated fabric used for the Globetrotter’s upholstery, HITCH™, features a fine woven texture, subtle metallic tip print, and distinctive two-tone feel. HITCH not only gives the furniture a sleek, modern look – it’s also incredibly durable and stain resistant. So your furniture always remains beautiful and inviting."

It seems from reading this product web page for the Hitch upholstery, though, that it is very durable and stain resistant. Not a direct comparison but I can say this about my "Sandpiper" (white) ultra leather is it cleans up nicely and stains and scuffs come right out with a little soapy water and scubbing. In my opinion I think your Hitch will clean up nicely, too. The website above specifically says it's used in the RV industry (among others).

Is there any more update on how this material is holding up. We are in the market for the Copenhagen Cream in the Globetrotter but there will be kids involved. We are wondering how others are doing with this color with general upkeep, cleaning, and stain potential? Any info out there would help.

AirRookies, we ordered a GT in Copenhagen Cream but changed it to Slate because our Cairn Terrier travels with us and we didn’t want to cover the upholstery any time he was on it.

We did see a cream on a dealer’s lot and it had a fair share of dirty marks. That said, I’m sure it got abused by kids and people not paying attention. It’s very pretty to look at but we’re glad we went with the darker color. The HITCH material is really tough but comfortable to sit on.

I’m also interested to see what some Cream owners have to say after living with it for a while.

Good luck with your decision!

Spradling Approved Cleaners

Yes! Yesterday we picked up our 2021 GT with Copenhagen Creme upholstery.

I just found this link on the Spradling website on approved cleaners. We will still probably just go with some very weak soapy water to start out.

See you out on the road!

Smile Cleaning those cream luxury vinyl cushions (hitch?)

So i just picked the brain of one of the guys over at Airstream and asked him off the record... "how are you guys cleaning these? I won't hold you liable if I mess it up... just lemme know!"

He told me that they use a degreaser/water solution. 1 part degreaser 3 part water. He said be careful, if solution is too strong, you'll stain.

He said use microfiber cloths so you can really get in there without damaging and for the floor (luxury woven) he suggested using the same formula but even using a softer brush to scrub spots if you need to.

My first go: I was timid with solution and got timid results. Turned it up a notch and noticed a big difference on the seats. It will take some elbow grease but you will get results. Not perfect results yet, but I don't sigh in frustration every time I step into the Airstream, which was my goal. I could tell that if I really spent some good time with it, I could make even more ground.

With the floor, the brush really helped me get the spots and REALLY helped with the entry point which was most soiled. I'm sold on the cocktail.

So... at your own risk... 1 part degreaser / 3 part water. Degrease it with your own scrubbing energy, then use a watery rag to wipe all that degreaser and muck away and then a dry rag to make sure you have everything off cushion. Worked out for me.
