Great idea; will you pick a time period, look for a product that looks like in the manual or flier from the vintage of the trailer?

My sweetie already has some fabric... and it is kind of retro. No particular time period, but it sure looks like some upholstery that was in my parent's house back in the 80's!

I love this discussion about fabric! I enjoy changing up the interior decor of my Scamp often. As a result I'm always on the lookout for fun fabrics at the right price. In San Francisco there are more than a few great fabric stores. Among them are Discount Fabrics, Britex, Mendels and my personal favorite, Fabrix. This tiny store is packed from floor to ceiling with fabrics from manufacturer's overruns. Most fabrics are 2, 3 or 4 dollars per yard! Their selection is pretty random but always fun. Zippers are 25 cents each and they have a trough full of buttons.

A great place to get Hawaiian themed fabrics is from Discount Fabric Warehouse in Hilo and Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. They have a great selection online and will mail up to 30 yards of cotton/blend fabric in a USPS flat rate box to the mainland!

If ANYONE should ever come across multi-colored fabric (any type) that's in primary colors only (Red, Blue, Yellow), I'd like to know about it. Not fussy about pattern or background (white, black, tan, etc.) It seems everything I find has purple or orange or green in it too... sigh.
