If you were in the market would you want them done in someone else's style or would you want them left alone to finish how you like???
Thanks for your input!
It depends on whether they are presentable and servicable, if you want an optimum price then all systems must be clean and in working order, and all cosmetics must be pleasing to the eye.
On each of the campers we have sold, the new cushion covers and curtains along with fresh floor coverings were the final touches which offered the added value the buyer wanted. They are such a small part of refitting a Camper compared to what you don't see.
There are those seeking a project and those seeking a finished camper.
The latter has the expectation of a higher price.
With fiberglass trailers, there is seldom a lack of prospects and your taste will be appreciated by at least one of them. We try to adopt a "theme" which fits the "personality" of each camper.
We are now doing a "trailswest campster" which has a kind of "Jeep" personality some will love it some not so much, but it only takes one.
Reuse the old cushion covers if they are clean and presentable ( even if they are ugly), but if they are torn or stained, at least make simple "pillow case" style covers or panel repairs.
