Furniture coverings peeling

We can have a 2013 cross country sports coach. All of the covering on the driver and passenger seat sofas and dinette are peeling and flaking. Have contacted forest river to no avail. Is anyone else having this issue.

Is this the bonded leather interior? If so it is not only an RV problem but a bonded leather problem. I have been seeing it on house hold furniture as well.

Good luck on getting it taken care of.

Have the same problem with my 2012 Forrester. Have seen on here somewhere that people who have Class A's are getting some resolution in the matter. Brian Knight at Forest River takes care of them. Brain Meeks handles Class C's and he won't respond to emails.

I did get some response. They are willing to send New material (don't know what the quality will be) and pay a pittance toward labor, approx $700. Got estimate for labor $3600. Don't know how f I would be better off trying to replace altogether

We had the same problem and fortunately it occurred during our warranty period, so we experienced a lot less hassle in getting both seats, sofa, and dinette replaced. It was a manufacturing mistake of using inferior material. FR should stand behind their product. Good luck because I know this has been a big issue for them.

They are going to replace covering with "better quality material ". Am trying to get in touch with dealership in Texas that is installing for the allowance they are offering. No call back yet.

Furniture coverings peeling

Same thing happened on my Mirada, fortunately only the recliner peeled. Several friends with Tiffins were really hit hard with peeling vinyl. All of the furniture upholstered with that vinyl peeled. A huge mess. Not just the mess, but the inconvenience and time and effort to get the work done.
