    This is after. Notice the floor has changed too.

    I have a beige leather steering wheel cover on order, as I think it needs it.

    The front seat base covers are still missing when I took these, they have been done too.

    The curtains (dummies they don't close) are still the originals. We have some new ones to match which we will put on tomorrow.These were not made by Tappers though they did offer, but made by a local curtain firm.

    Upholstery was £1700, and £380 for the floor, they brought an outside chap in to do that.

    I like the way they are praying on your bed that they get it right, and the first aid kit if they don't.

    A bit of a concern its true. Red wine has already been drunk, but not spilt.

    Your newly reupholstered motorhome looks beautiful and though the white colour certainly makes your motorhome look and feel luxurious I wonder in the light of practicality, did you consdier any other colour and if so what it was.

    This might seem an odd question to ask, but much as I like white and cream I know "I" could not live comfortably in a van ulpholstered that colour. (Especially as I imagine the garage mechanic climbing in to open the bonnet) As I think of an alternate I can't think of one which would look as good and yet feel comfortable.
