Covers on couch and dinette seats

Still doing my research before we (rather *I*!) decide what to purchase.

I have to tell ya, the interior decor options leave a lot to be desired for someone that really doesn't like brown or tan. Or knows her eyes will boggle after a while looking at the patterns they use. (My brain always tries to find things inside of patterns, which can be fun some times and a real bother at other times.)

Anyway, hubby suggests covers. Are they readily available? Do they stay in place or are they more of a pain to deal with?

Right now I'm looking at an Eagle HT 26.5RKS with the almond colorway. But also liked a few Eagle Premiers (331RKTS and 351RLTS).

Or will I just need to suck it up and deal with whatever color I pick out or they have on the lot if I don't want to order one?

Thanks

They need to do something a little more exciting on these interiors. Browns are boring, dull and gloomy and with so few windows you would think lighter colors would be a natural.

Well, I did see one Class A at the recent Seattle RV show that was *too* light. It was basically white paneling for the cabinets. I forget what the furniture color was as the white paneling wasn't my style and I wasn't able to figure out at their web site if it came in other color options, so I crossed it off my list.

Now, if they used blues, we'd be talking! Or even grays! But browns and tans. Yuck. Maybe I can get zebra striped furniture covers. In purple! That'd sure brighten it up.

This looks like a cream and I could work with this color? At least you can do something with it, giving it some life, fitting your oun personality into it. Would cheerful be a good way to describe this one?

Personally, I like tans, rusts, and browns (note my user name)! I find them to be very warm and soothing. They're certainly better than the baby blue and pink flowered interiors of the 80's; or the maroon and navy blue paisley interiors of the 90's. Just a man's opinion!

You can always brighten things up with some colorful pictures, throw pillows, throw rugs, or (as your husband suggested) slip covers.

The good thing about the neutral color schemes is that it has been easy (and inexpensive) to add color. Even the dog bed was an opportunity lol.

Flowers or paisley?!?!?! Horrors!

What I'm mainly wondering is if anyone has put slip covers on their furniture and do they stay in place. Slip covers that slip (HA!) around are quite annoying, to say the least. I already know I'm not using the bed spread that comes with the unit - ghastly!

If slip covers have used by others, are there any that are better than others? I did have someone make custom basket liners for my product display for when I sell at craft bazaars and I'll probably ask her at some point if she can make custom slip covers in the fabric of my choice. It won't be cheap though!

Thanks

Very true! Love the doggie bed. I'm going to travel with my kitty and she has a leopard print fuzzy basket that will be coming along. As well as an electric zebra patterned throw for those cooler days/evenings.

No No No, tried to find a better pic. at 2:00 in the morning but couldn't. I'm not into the flowers or paisley either I was just trying to show how much easier it would be to decorate the inside by not having UPS brown all around. 50 Shades of Grey sounds better than 50 shades of brown. Like you, I would like to see more than a pillow and a throw rug to look at. TT tend to look all the same inside at least that's what I saw at the RV show but the motor homes take on a whole new look from floor to ceiling. Some I liked and some I didn't but they had more life to them.

One thing I have found is that the furniture in RVs is not of very high quality. Neither the padding nor the material. My plan is to replace on the 3 year plan.
