    Yep me to, we have the same dreary old upholstery in our van, but cover most of it with rugs n stuff(y) but have toyed with the idea of reupholstering, I think Jim had his done and although he posted before pics I'm not sure if he ever posted after??

    Does anyone know who does the upholstery for ih ?
    I'm sure I read on mhf they didn't do it themselves , but a well known company did it.

    We are pitched up in their compound, hooked up to leccy with the cab seats gone and the covers off the living area, doesn't look very nice at the moment. Staff have been brillient, when we couldn't decide the final design, we had the main sales person, the production manager and a cutter in here helping us decide.

    Just off for a meal at the nearby Beefeater.

    I think the Hymer pattern is still available if you want to re-upholster it.
