Cushion cover material?

I really like the leather in my new tow vehicle and thought that the Escape cushions, in the U shaped dinette might be nice covered in fake leather (for lack of a better name). I was looking at the Sailrite site and thought that Nagahide might be a good alternative to the traditional fabric. What are people experiences and pros/cons of using Nagahide?

When it's hot, I sure hate sitting on anything vinyl. I either sweat or get stuck. When it's cold, the vinyl is really cold.

That’s my experience too. Leather is not much better. I voiced that opinion a few years ago, then ended up being talked into a leather recliner. They’d insisted that new manufacturing processes made a big difference. So I bought it.

In order to help with Search, it's spelled Naugahyde: an artificial material designed to resemble leather, made from fabric coated with rubber or vinyl resin.


Good luck!

That’s vinyl. It was used a lot in hot rods during the rolled and pleats days. I was really into reading about custom cars in 1964

Naugahyde Upholstery Vinyl Fabric...
I knew what you meant, even though it is spelled “naugahyde,” as in the multiple websites that list it.

oops, I fixed mine.


BUT, to answer the OPs question. Most of us have cushions that have vinyl on the bottom. A few do full wraps of custom fabrics. But I don't know of anyone on the forum that's done a full wrap of vinyl

Naugahyde is made from the skin of small creatures called Naugas .
They were discovered in the 1960’s on a small island near Tazmania
