The quickest way to make a well worn travel trailer or motorhome look new again is to replace the old RV furniture that has become faded or sun damaged.
Often the basic framework is still solid, therefore taking your RV to an upholstery shop so they can redo it with fresh fabric is usually all that’s required.
Any RV dealer can order you replacement RV furniture through a number of sources. This can make for a nice upgrade in quality as well.
My personal favorite is to just tear it all out and buy new furniture at a local home furniture store. It’s a whole lot cheaper, and it’s not that hard to find a way to attach it to the floor so it doesn’t move around.
Nothing will make your wife happier than to tell her “Let’s go furniture shopping.” My wife is always after me to tear out the dinette every time she goes into our travel trailer.

I’ve been involved in RVing for over 50 years — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs and motorhomes. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues.

To date, I've shared my RV knowledge in over 300 articles here at The Fun Times Guide!
