Dinette cushions falling

Any ideas to keep the backrest cushions from falling over. We thought about self stick Velcro but are afraid to damage the wall.

Do you have the "U" option, the corner cushions hold ours up. But if the have the stock, like our 19 was, they just flop over sometimes.

ours do not fall over since adding the pool noodle behind them, at least not ery often. This does not inure the corner ones on the U, those fall over all the yime, no noodle.

You put the doodle behind the vertical side cushion to give it an angle and more lower support.

We have been using the smaller size pool noodle which works quite well for us.
The angled cushion is much more comfortable!

Do not use Velcro glued to the liner on the wall, almost impossible to remove plus it does not work to hold the cushions in place.Been there , done that.

We use about a 3" pool noodle. At $1 or so for a 4 ft long pool noodle you can try different diameters and decide which works best for your trailer. We even inserted a pool noodle into the cushion back for a lumbar support, there is plenty of fabric on the stock cushions to do this.
