Most people refer to interiors of cars and trucks when it comes to upholstery, but the use of upholstery is much more widespread. Upholstery is found in all kinds of vehicles—cars, trucks, minivans, RVs (recreational vehicles), motorhomes, scooters, motorcycles, boats, and yachts. Upholstery is now seen in furniture and in the interior decorations of residential and commercial buildings.
Previously, car makers only used upholstery in the car seats and on the roofs of cars. Nowadays, upholstery is found in almost all sections and components of modern cars such as doors, floors, trunks, headliners, doors, etc. The materials used in upholstery is predominately vinyl, leather, and fabric though upholstery consisting of composite materials are being widely used in customized cars and classic cars.
The upholstery in cars, trucks, minivans, motorhomes as well as RVs are waterproof, durable and stain resistant. Regular maintenance will extend the longevity of the upholstery, but it will wear out, fade, or degrade over time. Therefore, it is essential that you repair or replace the upholstery when necessary. So, we recommend you only hire experienced RV upholsterer for replacing or repairing the upholstery of your RV.
Having said that, let’s discuss the upholstery found in modern RVs.
Recreational vehicles and motorhomes are quite popular among campers and the general public in the Pacific Northwest regions. The upholstery of RVs aren’t subject to extensive usage and wear and tear like conventional cars, but that doesn’t mean that the upholstery isn’t subject to fading or degrading. Sooner or later the upholstery will require repairs or replacements. Fishing gears, bicycles, camping equipment, cooking items, and other camping and outdoor equipment can cause some form of damage to the RV upholstery. For instance, fishing hooks can create holes in the carpets or seat covers. The fabrics of the cushions can tear, the foam in the seats can become flat, saggy, and muddy, the headliner can become loose, rippled or saggy, and so on and so forth. Most of these upholstery issues can be rectified by either repairing or replacing the original upholstery with new ones.
Before buying any kind of RV upholstery, it is worth mentioning that the upholstery used in recreational vehicles and motorhomes is different than a car or truck. RV upholstery is distinguishable to the upholstery or decorations used in homes. The main difference is that the RV upholstery is more durable, stain resistant, and fits better.
If you have an RV and thinking about changing the fabric of the upholstery with something bright and vibrant, Red Crypton is a great option. Crypton is a reputed manufacturer of high-quality stain, moisture, and odor resistant performance fabrics for both residential and commercial purposes. The foam used in upholstery usually goes flat over time. Most upholstery shops repair the old foam with newer foams, but some upholsterers use steam to restore older foams. To change the fabric, just strip the old fabric covers and put new ones on them.
Many RV upholstery comes with fold-down seats made of vinyl. Fold-down seats were popular in the 1990s. These seats had a wooden frame, cotton batting, coil springs, burlap, and springs. Modern fold-down seats are now made with high-quality polyurethane foam and they are more durable and comfortable than traditional cotton padded springs. If you want to restore or replace these old cotton padded springs seats, just replace the springs and burlap with polyurethane foam and plywood seat decks.
The foam in RV seats is more susceptible to damage than car seats mainly because the safety harness of the RV is constantly rubbing against the captain’s seat. This tears the fabric and shreds the upholstery foam. Repairs are relatively easy. But do keep in mind that the repairs will become complicated and expensive if the foam is shredded. Also, replace the foam with high-quality polyurethane foam and reinforce it with additional padding to prevent the seats from getting flat in the future.
