    Sick and tired of the covers in our van.. They look filthy 10 minutes after being washed.. ( Really crap colour ! )

    I have been trying to organise a re-do during the week betwixt The Great Escape and the Bring and Buy

    Tried Regal.. they seem to have been shut for ages and are not open again until next Monday ( so not a lot of chance of getting it booked in then ! )

    Been on Careavan web site and they look REALLY expensive compared to others and seem to want the van for 5 days ( while others are all saying a day ), and every time I have called there 'is no one to take your call at this time', so am not exactly impressed..
    Anyone make any suggestions ??

    Upholstery

    Try DCF Upholstery, he is local to Thetford and used to do the upholstery for Jarrolds Furniture when it was here. Tel/Fax 01362 821379 or mobile 0786 8807928.
    Will be getting him in to do ours towards the end of the summer. Had a really good quote and if we want we can supply our own fabric although he has a good range if you want him to supply the fabric. He has a lot of sample books so you can probably find something suitable. He has done other work for us and very pleased with his work.
    Really nice pleasant person too!

    Now I did see a company that were doing them for about £500 for a complete refit of the upholstery. I will try to 're-find' them:thumb:

    Ronnie, had a look and they do ordinary furniture mate.. No idea if they know how to take a motorhome apart and not really willing to find out :Wink:

    Carol, cheers for the info but a tad out of our way really.. Need something no further north than Derby really

    Rainbow Chasers.. See if you can dig it out for us :thumb:
