Hello!
I am redoing my travel trailer and actually thinking about taking out cabinets and adding bunks. This is a small travel trailer (less than 14ft). I've gotten ideas from other redos. Since I want to do this I will need new cushions for the dinette, bunk above the dinette, and the bunks. Any suggestions on where to get these so they'll all match? I want new foam and cushions. I don't want to do this myself by no means. All of your suggestions are greatly appreciated. I live in the Detroit, Michigan area so if you know of somewhere locally I could go that would be great as well.
Thanks!!!

Hi!
I'm not sure how you're going to deal with bunks. As I'm sure you're aware, the walls of any RV are quite flimsy, and unless you know exactly where the main supports are you might be getting into trouble by adding something that you're expecting to support quite a bit of weight.
If you've got someone who can do that kind of construction I'll look forward to seeing the pictures. As far as upholstery, since you're near a large city is there a garment district where you can buy large quantities of fabric at discount prices? I go to downtown L.A. to buy stuff like that. I think you'll be surprised at the prices and types of fabric you can find if you've got somewhere like that.
Good luck! Laura -- and Jed

Hi
If it was me I would go to a car upholstery shop. They would have fabrics and the foam and the know how.

Any upholstery shop can make the cushions, your fabric or theirs. Just give them the measurements. Look in the yellow pages for one. "Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy." Guillaume Apollinaire

Can we see a pic of the area you want to put the bunks? I know a lot of the older TT are set up that way with something that looks like a shelf but is actually a bunk...usually above the couch. Alice

The TT is getting some other things done to it. After I pick it up totally tomorrow I will take a picture. Thanks
