is this normal fabric wear?

2nd season, 5th trip in the 5th wheel and the fabric on the couch is wearing fast....
what do you think of this? normal wear or warranty call?

I don't think that was used by the dogs. Not overly concerned with it but it's been a rainy two days and just sitting here in the campground nit-picking

I wouldn't call that normal, certainly not for a 2013 model year. I would make a claim and see what comes of it.

Our's has a microfiber type fabric and our 90lb boxer makes the couch his bed. We don't show wear like that.

that's not nit-picking - I wouldn't be happy with that kind of (normal) wear in that short of time!!!

Unfortunately MOST RV manufacturers use the cheapest fabric available for furniture. Our old expensive SOB had rapid wear-n-tear on the furniture and our fairly new Jayco seems to be following that same pattern. It's all good though cuz DW has already figured out what fabric she will be using to recover the furniture . That's just my opinion, of course.

Get it fixed while you still have warranty. They will still be able to match the colors. We had to have the couch cushions replaced on our trailer after a years use.

TT fabrics are typically thinner than a residential type and wont hold up well. You can try to make a claim (or see where it goes) since your still in warranty but likely the dealer/Jayco will say its excessive wear due to the end user unless they admit a known issue with their fabrics etc. and replace it.

I have the same fabric and mine started doing that the first trip out with it. I am waiting until the end of the summer to take it in and have warranty work done to it and will include it in my list of things to fix.
