Scamp cushions and covers

Hey! My wife and I are looking to redo the foam and covers for our Scamp 16. We arenít a big fan of the current offerings from Scamp and are wondering if anyone has any experience with cutting new cushions and covering them yourself. Looks like foam is roughly $250 for the amount needed and the cover material is about the same. That puts it at $500 but since neither of us can see well enough we would need to have a professional do it and Iím guessing that is about another $500 which would put the total more than brand new Scamp ones. If anyone has some advice we would thoroughly appreciate it!

Here is what we did
My wife contacted our local adult education facility... they offered upholstery classes... we visited and spoke with the instructor... they had a number of students that were looking for projects
We purchased our foam/fabric from them... in about 2 weeks we not only got new cushions/covers... but the lady even made us curtains and a portta potty cover
Our cost was so small Iím embarrassed to mention it
We made a donation to the school and my wife made the student a huge pan of lasagna
This was a great find for us
Might ask your local schools

Scamp / Camper cushions

a year and a half ago, we bought a 2918 Scamp 16 needing everything. Since we are both 6' and over 200 lbs, I made a queen width bed platform. We found a tri-fold 4 inch mattress that we trimmed the foam to fit the corners and she reused the heavy duty fabric that came with the mattress. Was by far the best price for the foam and included the fabirc to boot!

Examples at https://www.milliardbedding.com/prod...fold-mattress/

Others with search on web.

We have spent over a month at a time since then.

We used the same foam but purchased the fabric we wanted for the covers in the amount specified by Scamp and sent the fabric to them. They have a sub-contractor who will sew the covers who did an excellent job. Don't remember the cost but it was not outlandish.
