Cushion slippage 2003 22' CCD

My husband and I made our "maiden voyage" to the California coast - camping out for a week late in March. We purchased our Airstream (my husband always corrects me when i call it a mere "trailer") just the week before.
It is in wonderful condition. The solar panel/inverter combination worked great. It was possible to dry camp the entire week so we could maintain our beach front campsite.

It was fun figuring out all the systems and nesting on windy mornings.
My only complaint at present is that the seat cushions in the dinette slip forward each time they are used. The continual adjustment and fussing must have some resolution. I've thought about velcro at the back or those non slip pads used under throw rugs.

Has anyone else had a problem with this?
Any ideas?

There should be snaps on the cushions so that they snap to the dinette seat - unless that was an addition to the 2005 CCD models.

If you don't have them, you should be able to add them without much trouble.

Velcro sounds like a good idea as well.

Best of luck and glad to hear you like your new AS!

Our CCD actually has large pieces of velcro sewn onto the under side of the cushions. Works great. If yours doesnt have it, I'm sure that you could find a seamtress to sew some on for you, or try it your self if you are braver than me!
On another note, I would love to know where you camped on the beach. We are new to camping and looking for places to try out.

Good Ideas

Thank you for the help with the cushion slippage problem.
I was not aware that the more recent models have straps.

Think I'll try the velcro at the zipper end so that I can still flip the cushions.
I may also put down one of those non slip pads. If that fails I'll add straps.

As for the California coast.
If you get there on Sunday afternoon or Monday it is usually easy to find a spot on the beach side or near. Try Refugio. On the south end there is a wooded grassy area which is ideal. El Capitan is up on a bluff but also nice if you are close to the cliff side. Otherwise, the train will drive you crazy.
These are both state parks north of Santa Barbara. The campground at Carpinteria is also interesting. You can be right in town with a short walk to restaurants and bars. Camping in a parking lot is not our thing but there are great sites right on the ocean if you want a little of both worlds.
