New seat covers

Thanks Forest River for replacement seat covers. Not too bad installing the new ones. Zip ties are the key.Click image for larger version

Looks like a nice install. Just one question; shouldn't that left arm rest shown be on the passengers right side or did you just install the cover wrong?

Jeff, how long did it take to get them after Forest River approved the replacement?

It took about a month.

Seat covers

How did you order your new seat covers?
My 378XL 2015 front seats are starting to flake

Sorry, I have blanked out on the manufacturer, but there are several longer threads concerning flaking seat covers. One of them at least has the manufacturer contact name and prices. Do a search.

Mine are identical to jeffv003 and are made by Williamsburg Furniture in Elkhart, IN. The tags are on the seats underneath somewhere.

Oh NO...my furniture is failing...and I can't get FR to help!

I'm have a huge problem with our upholstery...with delamination on our L-shaped sofa, our recliner and both captain's chairs. So far FR is turning a blind eye to the issue but I've spoken with the actual manufacturer (Williamsburg) who acknowledged a chemical omission or mistaken formula when fabric was produced...which was selected by FR.
While Williamsburg is apparently willing to sell new fabric at wholesale cost...the expense of reupholstery maybe greater than purchasing new furniture. Oh...and Williamsburg no longer makes that furniture for Georgetowns. I'm hoping an appeal to FR will help resolve this problem

Williamsburg quoted $158 per front chair and $275 for the couch. Though we do not have the L shaped couch. Ours is a 2013 378XL. That makes it 6 years old. Shouldn't have this problem but I though that was reasonable. New furniture was more than twice as much.
About a 2 week turnaround for the covers.
They were very easy to work with.
