If you did the dinette and sofa in different colors it probably would clash too much since they are so close to each other. The idea of leather/leatherette is a great idea. I do not feel you have to do colored stitching as long as the valance, seats, blinds all blend together.

We'll offer one neutral fabric for people that want to sub that in on the sofa. We will always offer a cherry and a maple wood. In addition we'll have a light/beige leather, a medium gray and a darker brown. That should cover all our bases and let people adjust as necessary.

I've been looking at several different valance types...the problem is location. We can't really do curtains because of the limited space that we have, so a soft valance is really the best option. I'd love to do a rod and a grommeted valance, but again we don't have the height above the window to get that in and make it look right.

Sounds like a plan to me! That would offer everybody something they might like. The soft valances also don't sway while moving as curtains and rods will, the shades can be lowered quite easily, with curtains I would think it would be bulky.

That is the other issue, curtains with rods in a trailer is fine...no one is riding back there when driving.

The other thing about a soft valance, is I think I can make a velcro application work. Want to change it out, just peel it off and put what you want in its place. Toss the pillows, add your own and presto...a whole new unit.

Changing it out is perfect I love that idea. Fabric is available everywhere, with directions it would be a cinch. For resale could be changed back to original. Wow, I'm on board already can't wait!

I love all the colors in our 2014 Sunseeker 3050. The cherry cabinets make the motorhome rich looking and warm and cozy feeling. With the skylights and good lighting it does not feel too dark at all. Do not like Lt beige looks that I have seen in other motorhomes.

I like the darker colors they hide dirt better...that's not to say I don't give the camper a good cleaning after each use. Family friend is a carpenter, I had him take measurements and he then cut several pieces of carpet to fit my entire floor plan flawlessy this helps keep the floor clean and provides a little extra insulation on the floor. It is also very easy to remove when I want to scrub the floors. the pieces of carpet all match and it was "scrap/leftover pieces" that he had laying around it cost me a case of beer

My sentiments, exactly... Currently the only choices in Sunseeker seem to be 3 brown shades. At least give us more of a choice by offering a couple of solid color cloth fabrics.....Gray/Taupe, Blue/Gray, maybe with some colored threads though the fabric. You could still offer one of the psychedelic brown cushion choices for the people who are still stuck in the 70's. At least give us something besides brown. We have been trying to decide which of the current choices are least objectionable. Hopefully some better choices will be available before we order our 3050S

Actually, our sofa's are already all leather, the dinette seat is leather. The only fabric that we use is on window treatments and the back cushion of the dinette.

For Sunseeker the choices are a light beige, a medium gray and brown. Maybe you've only seen brochures...but I would recommend seeing one in person.

Or order the furniture with all leather, no fabric.

Then when you're ready to buy, just specify to match the bunk mat. Nice neutral fabric.
