    regal furnishings . at ilkeston .
    had mt seats in the trailer done by them 13 yrs ago. last winter a few buttons came off but the covers etc are like new . i,m sure if i pop in when up there new buttons will be fitted at as reasonable cost . they do them while you wait . you park in their yard over night and usually by dinner time your fixed up looking like new .

    I used these people local to me

    http://www.gemupholstery.co.uk/mobile

    The work was good

    but I had to remove the upholstery curtains and odds and ends

    Took a while collection to return though

    They collected and returned the completed items for me to reinstall

    Trouble was we didn't use the rear belted seats as their is only us two

    When I had to use the seat the cushion is tight around the post
    That supports the seat belts
    but there is two years between
    Having it done and finding fault ( the mrs Tofo illness not helping )

    So I can't blame them

    Just be aware if you use them

    They give a funster discount and have refurbished a few funster vans. Snowbird had a good reupholstery done recently too cant remember that company's name

    You are so right Gail, and am well pleased with the complete makeover, floor, carpets, curtains and upholstery. A search will provide many threads on fun, here is just one.

    We go with Silkcut A 1 Trimmers, excellent job, yet the price was a lot more competitive than the others.

    We recently used Careavan in S. Birmingham, having seen them at a fair. We were there at the same time as Snowbird.
    We found them efficient, tidy and a good price with a wide range of materials.

    we used Regal at Ilkeston, briliant job, stay overnight on their site with EHU and nice walk into town next morning.
    Do a bit of shopping, lunch at local pub and everything done by 4pm

    Also did a lot more than we asked for.
