Booth dinette material upholstery
#1
How much material do I need to recover my booth dinette (I would assume this is a standard size) plus the extra cushions for when it slides out?

My 2007 with the front seat about 6" narrower than the back dinette seat is 10 yards.  I have a curve in the galley and the original owner apparently wanted a little more space to walk through when in camper mode (slides closed).

Hope this helps you some.

Just had my entire booth dinette re-upholstered by Motorhomes of Texas in Nacagdoches, TX.  They did an excellent job and did it within their estimate and time quoted.  The price was "WAY LESS" than what Newell quoted to do the same job.  PM me if you are interested in what the price was.

Love the color pop! Nice thing about the neutral laminate is
You can easily change the look changing the upholstery colors

Thank you Tom and Richard for your kind comments.

Next is changing out the sofa which is lined up for later this month in Elkhart, IN, at Bradd and Hall. We never use the sofa bed for it is downright uncomfortable and the sofa itself kills both my and Janet's back so we are replacing it with the 76” Lambright Dutchboy Theater Seating sofa with inside handles in the same color that is currently in the coach.

I am trying different vendors besides Newell and if they work out it gives me the option to go to them instead of Newell. I will let you know what I think after it is installed on July 25th.

Interesting comment about the sofa. My 95 and 99 have what appears to be the same sofas from Villa. But the back is so much upright on the 99 version that we have to use pillows. Something changed in the frame design that I haven't quite noodled out.

But new sofas are on my winter project list.

Please let us know how your sofa project turns out.

Good to hear from you!!!

Oscar,
Thank you for posting the pictures of your "new" booth dinette and your comments. Motorhomes of Texas did a wonderful job. We have an appointment in the near future at Motorhomes of Texas for them to give us an estimate on reupholstering the backs of our booth dinette. 
We have experienced the same seating difficulty with our sofa. After sitting on the sofa for a few minutes our back's starts hurting. Considering buying taller and stiffer seat cushions to determine if that would make the sofa more comfortable to sit on. Maybe it is the fact that we are just getting older.

Sincerely,
Reese Cantrell
