dinette cushion foam

I'd like to change the foam in the dinette cushions of our 2400W. They seem way to soft and the outer edge is beginning to roll already. Has anyone done this yet, and where would I find good replacement foam ? I guess I'll be told to find an upholster shop, but in my neck of the woods, that isn't easy.

If you want it custom cut to size:

https://www.foamorder.com/cushions/cushions.html

They have all grades of foam. The best foam is, of course, expensive.

Iíve bough from foam Factory twice now. Call or email them to get a feel for what you need. For dinette cushions, measure as they instruct you to or what you get back can be slightly too big.

Iíd buy from them again in a heartbeat.

Something I do on my dream dinette cushions is to exchange sides prior to each trip. Kind of evens out the ware on the material.

Find an upholstery shop on one of your trips. If they will work with you it will only take about 2 hour tops to replace the foam. Might be a bar nearby.

RE: Sunseeker MBS W dinette

If you replace the foam in the dinette cushions, do you replace the "pleather" also? Or stuff the foam into a cushion cover?

Ours is in storage I don't remember if there are zippers.

The dinette is very uncomfortable, I am not even sure if new foam would help.
The backs are too wide and make the seat too narrow. Someone here on the forum said they had the backs remade 1/2 as wide. If I was sure it would help I might do that.

Following so I have the link. And I agree- the original foam is too thin and/or soft.
