    Quite a few around. Reluxe are good and do the upholstery for auto sleepers and others. Expensive, but would be our first choice. Also regal and care-avan. Have a Google the above and you can see what they offer

    We had our AutoSleeper reupholstered by ReLuxe who did a superb job.

    We have chosen CareAvan and are going over to their workshop for a 2 day appointment. Staying on the premises with EHU while they do the work. Jess has been very helpful so far, helping us pick the fabric and also email photos of the late fabrics coming in, just in case.

    We are booked in for 20th October and will post some before and after photos once complete. I will also give a full review of their service.

    We received recommendation from other Funsters of Tappers a few years ago and they did a first class job on our son's old camper so we went to them for some work earlier this year. Before & after photos Here.

    Tappers did ours in leather, excellent job. They are in Birmingham area, but they will come to a specific CC site nearby and do it in installments so you still have something to sit on. They also did our floor at the same time, but I think that job was subcontracted, still very good though and all done in the planned timetable.

    Went the NEC today and Regal had a stand so had a chat and got a quote off them to re-trim my motorhome in leather and it came out at £2,100 which I thought sounded OK. We continued to talk about possible combinations of colours etc. so at the end of the conversation I confirmed all we discussed was £2,100 he said yes and oh plus VAT , that's further >£400.
    I know everyone pays VAT and if your VAT registered the price minus the VAT is important but this is just one of those things that wind me up , what is the point of quoting prices minus the VAT when quoting prices to the general public.
    I just walked away.

    Not sure if I read it on here, spoke to someone about it or if I've just made it up but I remember someone saying they had theirs done in Morocco for peanuts ?

    I chose Tappers on price. It was a big mistake right from day one. I eventually left the caravan site having run out of time with a sub standard job. I lost the first day completely because no one had ordered the leather FFS.
    I repeatedly had to reject the offerings they brought back to my van each day. They showed great calm and patience but at the end of the day not good enough.
    One item I rejected for example. This is the end of a seat back that stares you straight in the face on entering the van. There were too many issues to list.

    Gradyp: understand your annoyance regarding the vat issue but my sister had her van covered by Regal a few years back and was delighted with the choice and quality of the work. At the time they just booked in one van per day and it was all hands on. We arrived v.early and the whole van was completed within the day. Fantastic service.

    We used Careavan for our Hymer last year after speaking with Paul at the NEC. We left the van with them for 4 days and they also fitted new cushion floor. There were a couple of snags which were sorted quickly at a time to suit us. We're pleased with the end result image.jpg
