Cushion redo

So the $1300ish quote for new cushion covers ( not including new foam!) was not acceptable to us. So we went another route... Bought a 50 buck stand up garment steamer and steamed the foam from existing cushions ( what the lady at the upholstery place said they do that ...trying to get my business....) and it was amazing.... Cushions puff back up to look brand new and it kills all smells or anything in the foam. Bought new covers from scamp and stuffed the revitalized foam back in. Had to wrap some cushions and suck the foam down inside a cut open garbage bag - then pull the bag out after - and cushions fit as snug as new.

Yea for you Kevin & Lisa! If it works for you, it works for us. Foam (can be) expensive. Glad you found a solution that works for you.

NOW, go camping and make memories!

I requested new foam for mine, and the shop that recovered them told me the foam was better than the new stuff they could get. They steam cleaned them, also. Mine cost more than $1300, but they did a great job.

Washing the covers made a huge difference to the "cleanliness" feel of my Scamp. I had no idea just how dirty they were until I looked in the washing machine after removing the first batch and seeing all the dirt left behind in the drum that did not rinse away. It was not as bad getting them back on the foam as I had feared either. It was tough but I did them a couple at a time a few evenings to reduce the chore effect.

THX for the tips on steam cleaning the foam. . . ours is only a season old but Cari & i have plans to replace some with gel-foam as a test of comfort to the butts while sitting.
