Absolutely! I told Crystal at ETI I don't know how they (Tammy?) came up with a fabric that camouflages everything and works for a lot of folks. I would have gone mad! And the original Casita cushions? Sorry, but not so hot. We lucked out on ours, though. The original owners, friends of our that had the trailer less than 2 years, spent over $800. on custom foam cushions upholstered with beautiful Sunbrella fabric. The pale green linen-like material--we loved it. It held up extremely well, but a friend of mine made large "pillowcases" for the cushions, because I was paranoid about spillage, etc. Probably didn't need to, the fabric was well-treated and resisted liquid and dirt very well. That's an option for the Escape later on, maybe. We're happy for now~

One thing to consider with upholstered on both sides (which we ordered on our 19') is to protect the bottom fabric from the plywood base. We are covering the plywood bench access covers on ours with short pile carpet runner. I have done exactly the same on my Boler.

Ian has a good idea about the carpet. The plywood is pretty rough and the hinges are exposed to the bottom of the cushions. Hummm....

Thanks everyone--appreciate the advice. At this point, I think we are not going to wrap the entire cushion and leave the vinyl on the back. At some point, "On the Lam" might tell us she'd prefer it differently~
Peace,
Gae

We might bring some type of thin carpet or area rugs with no skid backing on them to protect the bottom of the cushions, even the vinyl. Thanks for the tip.

I used the same hyper vent mesh used under the bed also behind the cushions.
