If you are the owner of a brand new RV, or motor home, you’ll likely notice that one of the weakest links of the entire vehicle are the camper cushions. Now, many times, these RV manufacturers tend to use cheap cushions and materials to build the seat, and instead, focus on other amenities within the RV. If you are looking for more comfort within an RV, consider swapping out the cushions for a more luxurious feel.

Opening Up Your Cushion

Most RV cushions are lodged within the seats and held together by a cheaply-made cover. And, many of them can be taken apart –assuming they are not made from leather or of a hard substance. If you’re lucky, they’ll have a zipper either on the side or underneath the seat. This will allow you access into the middle of the seat, where you can take out the old cushion and replace it with a new one.

Measurements Should be Accurate

Accurate measurements are important when it comes to replacing RC cushions or RV bedding. You need to ensure that the foam that you are purchasing will fit within the covers. If it’s even the slightest bit larger, you’ll find that there will be areas of the seat that will have uneven lumps – which obviously isn’t comfortable. When you take out the foam, measure the length, width, and depth of the foam. This will allow you to have an accurate measurement that you can provide to the foam manufacturer that you are purchasing from. Also, be sure that you the type of foam that you are purchasing is similar in density levels – otherwise the cushion will wrinkle into itself when weight is placed on it.
