Vicki, here's the same pattern as I chose, but beachy colors.. I was considering this one as option 2. And it's $4 less a yard than what I bought.
Sunbrella 56001-0000 Dolce Oasis 54" Furniture Fabric

Thanks Donna! I considered that one also, but finally chose 5608-0000 Seville Seaside. It should give me lots of options for pillow colors etc.
Sorry, I don't think I can do attachments in the ipad.

I just sent Tammy a message telling her I want 5.0 number 10 off the line! I'm a TEN, I want trailer TEN.

Oh my stars, I'd better get a passport!
Donna - congratulations!!!

Vicky and Donna (and anyone else interested in custom fabrics), Tammy is correct in recommending double the amount of fabrics for patterns and stripes. Matching patterns is an art in itself to get the beautiful look you see in those Sunbrella covered chairs. And you can keep the leftovers for patching damaged/stained/torn cushions, make pillows or bond it to vinyl for placemats.

If budget is more of a consideration, a good tweed will work well at hiding small stains, does not need matching and is very durable. And make sure you get the poly-vinyl that Escape places on the reverse side of the cushions. This is great for turning them over when you/the kids/pets come back in from swimming or frolicking in the dirt.

You could also give some thought to making or having made some elasticized terry cloth covers for the seat cushions that would be removable, washable and good for areas when there is a lot of dirt (desert, for example). Wind blown red clay can stick to your clothing. So you can protect your good fabric with these and wash them easily.

Hhhmm,
I see a part time source of income Rosemary, once you get your Escape we may be able to order some of those terry slip covers, I'm a big fan of seat covers in my new vehicles so something like that would be nice.

Rosemary, you have a second customer here! In a fit of madness, I ordered a deep blue corduroy type fabric (albeit Crypton) thinking it will be comfortable and I can change the decor with lime green pillows, or R/W/B, etc. But NOT thinking of 5 muddy pawed dogs. Well, at least it's washable.. And thank heavens for the vinyl base.

THANKS everyone for the support! Rosemary... I think Jim has a great idea... I don't sew!

I heard from Tammy this morning regarding the new 5.0 yardage:
Custom Fabric (Single Fabric $100, Additional Fabrics $50/each) 7m or 7.7yds * Please note fabrics with a repeating pattern will require the amount to be doubled.

I'm going to need to change my order for two more yards!! I've already fired off an email and will call EARLY Monday morning. As I've said, the Devil is in the details!

Vicki, that's REALLY nice. Yep, you'll have all kinds of bright options. Here, I'll post a pic for you

How did you make that work Jim? I thought I posted the right URL..
Donna, you posted a link (using the right address but with the URL tag), and you needed to post an image (using the IMG tag with the same address) to get this:


There are buttons for both links and images above the editing window.

What is the poly vinyl? Is that a separate fabric for the cushions?

Now that the fabric has been chosen, the next important issue for me is the hitch.

What size would be needed? Is one brand better than another?
I remember at the Bluebonnet gtg,I was shown a hitch that pivots all directions (at least I think so). Also is a sliding hitch a good idea?

Thanks gang for any input!
Going from my little 13' Perris Pacer to the 5.0 will be a good leap, but it will be the last one I will ever need!

Whoa, folks! Those of you ready to place orders for terry cloth seat covers may bring the wrath of the system admins upon me and force me to re-register as a vendor! Not my intention at all. Just trying to help you all with my sewing experience. Although I could see myself maybe picking up some spare cash doing repairs to RV materials once I retire.

Jim, cpaharley2008, you and I might be able to work out a barter at some time in the future, some mods for some seat covers? Materials covered by each party, of course. I did love that teak floor you built for the shower...
