I pulled mine out and took it to a shop to be recovered. Picked out a real nice vinyl, they added 2" of denser foam to seat and wrapped the 2 bars. Since the seat was 2" thicker, they made me a 2" thick, covered with same material pad to place on seat back when made into a bed. Much more comfortable to sit on and much better than original mattress on bed to sleep on. Cost about $300.00, worth every penny. The material I picked looks like an old Barber Shop chair, that design. If you are in Kissimmee, or Mayberry or Goshen, I would be glad to show you.
