Dinette cushions

We are finalizing parts of our build list for our 19 and just recently sent Escape our custom fabric from Sailrite. We are interested in having piping added to the cushions. We are curious if anyone else has had piping added to their cushions, and if so did you have piping done to both sides of the cushions(top&bottom-front&back). Are stock cushions reversible? That was what we assumed, so when we sent the amount of fabric Escape told us would be needed, we assumed we could flip the the cushions to extend to wearability. We are now wondering if anyone had experience with cushions with piping and was our assumption about reversibility of cushions correct?

Thanks for your comments, Howard

The seat cushions have a vinyl type fabric on the bottom so they are not reversible.

Actually the vinyl side can be used when you have children or wet bathing suits....

Well we certainly will have the wet dogs without bathing suits in our trailer! The idea of the reversible vinyl is growing on me. It looks like piping is done on both edges of each cushion, so we will order enough to do that. Do the back cushions also have vinyl on one side?

Choosing the fabric was an agonizing process, and we still haven't decided on the formica. We have enjoyed seeing everyone else's formica/fabric choices. A lot of creative people on this forum!

Anyone have suggestions for the size runners you can fit onto the floor of a 19'? SOMEONE does not necessarily take off their shoes (and I don't mean the dogs!)

My wife found a couple that pretty much fill the floor space, though since I put in the cork floor with a tough finish, we use them way less. We never take footwear off to go inside, just give it a quick sweep every day or so.

I will measure them up next time I am at the trailer.

Thanks everyone for your help. This forum is the best!

Thanks Jim in advance for measuring, and glad to hear I can keep my shoes on!

My dinette cushions back keeps flopping down. Is stick-on velcro tape to the wall the only best solution?

I tried that, and although the Velcro stuck great, the glue on the back that held it to the wall failed, probably due to heat.
