I think I will try the bubble stuff with the aluminum under the mattress. I know where to find that.

no idea what was left... I picked up a bunch of throw pillows from Walmart and used what I had left. one thing about the vinyl bottom is that you will have to lay down that mesh rubber matting so they don't slide around when you're sleeping on them. I use mesh place mats from the dollar store.

Scott do you have any idea of how much yardage you had left?[/QUOTE]

Ok so it seems that 13 yards of material is a good number to use for a 13' but I wonder if thats a good number for a 16' scamp as well. Are the cushions the same size on both? I think redoing the covers is going to be my winter project.

I don't know that they are the same the bed in the back of my scamp is a full sized bed in back and a bed and a bunk that is 2' by 6 foot in front. If these are the same sized beds then yes that 13 yards will do.

Thanks Beadbug after I posted I took a look at the Scamp site and they sell the same cushions for both the 13' and 16' so I'm pretty sure now that they are the same.

I'm not sure Tracy.
depends on how fussy you are about matching the pattern. I think buying an extra 30% of fabric would be a good idea if you are using plaids or repeating patterns.

Scott do you have any idea of how much yardage you had left?
