    Our driver and passenger seats are the swivel kind with arm rests. It's a 2007 van and they are not as comfy as they probably once were. We're thinking of getting all the seats in the motorhome reupholstered. Does anyone know if they can refurbish the front seats at the same time? If so can you recommend someone who would do this?
    Thanks, Mags

    Yes they can. We had ours done by Tappers a couple of years ago.

    Hi.
    Just chucking ideas in the pot. There was/is a converter "East newk spelling m/homes",they may tell you who does their soft furnishings, when we were in derbyshire,we used Regal Furnishings at Ilkeston derbyshire,a LONG way from you,but you could combine a visit within a holiday. Best of luck.

    We also used Regal and are very happy with the job they did all seats including the front seats re-upholstered with new foam and various panels covered all in one day, superb service.

    Regards

    I am sure all the people who re upholster do the front seats as well.

    They may just re-cover the foam though Carol. If new/ firmer seat pads are required they may need to farm that out.

    Most of them offer new foam if required, just need to ask. :)

    Our seats don't have armrests, so still looking for a decent pair to fit. :)

    Really need a pair, Paul. Sitting on an orange box driving whilst Lady Penelope rats on at me is a slight no-no. :( Thanks anyway.

    Regal did ours a couple of months ago, and and made a really good job of it - even putting fabric and padding on the formerly plastic arms.
