Cushion fabric?

We are not over the moon with the standard fabric Escape offers and are looking for an alternative. Short 2 wk time frame for their customizing option.

ETI did provide a website for SailRite but most fabrics were either too formal looking or not really RV fun.

What sites have folks found useful for custom cushion fabrics?

We bought Kovi fabrics, but ordered from amazon for lesser cost per yard, shipping direct to Escape but shipping cost to Canada is high.

Hi Bat Dude
Go with the customizing option and then u have time to acquire it. Ask Upholstery shops/boat upholstery companies etc. They have lots of knowledge!
FYI many folks were not crazy about the vinyl on the underside however it is one of the places where condensation will appear. Much better to deal with if u can just wipe it down.

Fabric

Sunbrella is one of your best options. Buy from a local supplier (they are everywhere just google) and send the fabric to Escape, done it two times now with two trailers no problems. Canada Post charged me 15 or 20 bucks. Lots of selection available. And should be a shop with hundreds of samples near you. And I would go with the standard covering with vinyl on the back. Sunbrella cleans up really easily. It's a trailer. But you need to make sure fabric, floor and counters work with each other. Counters are the easiest. Just pick one Escape does the rest.

Strange, we thought Sailrite had a huge selection of Sunbrella fabric. There are plenty of patterns that work well in an RV. Ours is a bold stripe pattern but we also like the solid colors with subtle textures and small patterns. Best part about using Sailrite is they ship directly to Escape for a reasonable price.

I purchased mine from fabric.com in December. You can get samples pretty quickly and they shipped directly to ETI. There was a customs charge of about $25.
