I'm already planning my winter fix up/mods - one of them being recovering the seat cushions. I did search to see if there was a discussion about leather usage but didn't locate any post regarding it, so I thought I'd give it a try here. If this has been discussed and I didn't find it, please direct me accordingly and delete this posting please!?

I figured that large luxury motorhomes have leather sofas and chairs and I thought since it's just my husband and myself, and we mostly eat out under the awning on a picnic table, and the rear bed is always down leaving the front table exposed, I thought I've been researching having our 27 year old cushions recovered in leather. I found a supply company on the web who has leather for $9.00 a yard, which I didn't think was too bad after visiting my JoAnn's fabric store and finding material for much, much more.

Anyone have a thought on this kind of covering in a fiberglass trailer? I have a 10 year old leather sofa and love seat in my home so my trailer being my 2nd home, I thought maybe it would work?!

Whatya think? Stick with material covering or go leather?

I think that would be really cool! I love leather furniture and it's so easy to keep clean. If the price is right, why not?? And post pics if you do!

Just watch that whatever material you choose that cushions will fit in their location, that the material is not too thick. I added heavy vinyl to cloth on my tent trailer cushions and had problems ever after folding the trailer.
