Recovering factory scamp cushions.

What is the best way to go about recovering scamp cushions? We recently bought a 2013 16 foot scamp and the cushions are in very good shape but I don't like the color. I am trying to make our little scamp which we named Norma Jean colorful and homey for my family. Is this a job I should take on myself or try and have it professionally done?mClick image for larger version

Scamp will sell a complete set of cushion covers, presumably in one of the current factory colors, for $390 US.
http://www.scamptrailers.com/parts-s...am-detail.html

A friend, who does upholstery, charges $50 labor per cushion. Scamp cushion fabric is $9.00 per square yard.

Some folks find Scamp factory cushions to be too hard for comfortable sleeping and have
added memory foam mattress toppers to get a comfortable nights sleep. If you do not use a mattress topper, new better-quality foam could cost $200 - $250.

Only you know your sewing skills and what kind of foam/fabric you want.

Good luck with your decision.

Does anyone know of someone who we could send cushions to and have them recovered with fabric we purchased?

Since the cushion upholstery is in good shape, I use it "as is" until new upholstery is needed. Make really coloful throw pillows and curtains. YMMV

I made cushion covers myself but i can tell you that with the *time* it took me and the cost of a good fabric, the long zippers, pipping, thread etc I probable should have had them done by someone else.

I would check around your own area to see if there is seamstress in your area who will do them for you.Check with local boat yards etc. they probable have someone they use.

I can think of hundreds of things to do to make my trailer my own and decorated my way without the expense of changing the cushion covers.
Here's a couple simple ideas hopefully to start the creative juices flowing. First small pieces of clear plastic, available at home improvement stores, and pictures. Cut the plastic smaller than the door and hold in place with mirror hangers with pictures behind the plastic.
As was mentioned earlier, make pillows that are covered with your choice of pattern.
Replace the curtains with your choice of pattern.

I wouldn't change the interior color and paint on the interior fiberglass, but I might paint on the cabinet doors. The brown strips around the top edge of the counter top is easily changed to another color. I'm about to turn mine red.

Hot pads with nice patterns can add a nice touch. I used lamp hooks attached to a small piece of wood then held in place with self adhesive Velcro to hand the pot holders.

OK, I hope that will start the creative juices flowing.

One easy way to change out the look of your cushions is to simply place throw blankets over them. I am fond of fleece blankets or even cut lengths of fleece. The fabric comes in all kinds of colors and prints. In a pinch, we use the throw blankets as extra bedding for warmth. See attached photo of my Southwest desert theme. I made the curtain panels and pillow cases. The photo is shown with the bunk bed set up but you can easily place the throw over the sofa, dinette cushions or use it as a bedspread! I even use the throws over my shoulders whilst sitting around the campfire.

If you still want to replace the cushion covers you might want to check with your dry cleaners. They often have talented seamstresses who can do this relatively easy project on their industrial sewing machines.

I recently had mine done for our 16ft Scamp (with bunks) by a "professional"...$150 in labor. 12 yards of comfortable & durable indoor/outdoor fabric...$120 from JoAnn Fabrics. Expensive but it totally worth it--completely changed the feel of my "new" camper!
