After seeing what Sylvia used, I'm strongly leaning towards a solid fabric as well. Or one with a slight pattern to it, such as two close colors woven together. I'm thinking a medium or darker grey or some royal blue tones. And then getting a bunch of cushy pillows made with some of the cat themed fabrics that I have. And yeah, rotate them around.

Or replace them if the hubby uses 'em. He absolutely kills pillows when he lays against them. I can not figure it out. I can use a pillow for years and then he uses it for a short time and it's completely wadded up, out of shape and unusable. It's very weird. So, I'll just plan on replacing them after a while.

Good to know the size of the counter. gotta add that to my spreadsheet!

Keep in mind that Sunbrella is well-known for awning fabrics, but they do have a variety, among them 'upholstery'.
Fabric Showroom: Sunbrella fabrics

Or even better in an RV or outdoor application: 'Marine Fabric'. Stands up against fading and UV breakdown.

The Canvas Parrot looks so cheerful, and it does well with dogs so must be durable! Are the valances Sunbrella? Your Escape looks so nice!

A suggestion for those getting the "U" dinette in the 21', ask ETI to install the converter on the side where the furnace is no longer located, it will give you more open storage space under the rear seat that is longer but narrower, or keep it in it's present location if you need wider but shorter storage where the furnace is no longer located, just a suggestion.

Andrea, sorry I didn't see your question earlier. The valances aren't Sunbrella, they are a 100% cotton fabric I found in a swatch book. I can't find the fabric name Right now but can try to figure it out if you really want to know.

Is the electrical cord in the corner in its own compartment? Can it be easily accessed on the inside? (I think maybe you have the detachable cord?)

Isn't the electrical box at the far side of the U in the back?

The electric cord is on the driver's in the back corner. Ours doesn't have its own compartment and is relatively easy to access. Our battery box (2 sixes) is on the passenger side toward the front of the dinette. The inverter is under the long back section so there is very little storage under the back bench. I'll see if I can get pictures.

Pictures of the area under the dinette may be attached!

I find that the area under the back section is difficult to get at (the back cushion is long and a little difficult to maneuver) so we don't have any thing stored is this space right now. I made a frame on the driver's side to keep the little oven secure while traveling and that is working well. The trailer is plugged in right now so not much of the cord is inside.

Thank you so much for the photos, Sylvia! So that is your personal item next to the furnace. I take it that part of the electrical cord is seen next to it. And the surge protector is in the corner. That is very helpful!
