Velour couch and dinnette?

I found a good deal on a 2013 Rockwood 2304s, just not crazy about the choice of velour for the cushion coverings, reminds me of my Puma track suit - that my wife won't let me wear in public. Anyone else have the wrinkled velour option?

That's bad, you can always re-cover the cushions, good news is you can use the old velour material to make a suit.

Tis' kinda Pimp come to think of it! Glass half full now, install disco ball and have a full glass. I like your signature, we have two furry kids as well. Outdoor shower will get used.

Well, the detail of criss-crossing over the couch is pretty, though. :-) I think you could recover the velour bits, but if that's too ambitious, just tightening them up would probably help a lot. Anyone who undertakes either project, though, is due beverage of choice and chocolate or whatever other goodie s/he demands. :-D

I've seen the velour and ALSO what appears to be a light brown pleather material used on the couch. Our dog's nails would puncture the plastic in a heartbeat I think.


The 2304 model we bought has (I really hope) a more durable woven fabric, similar to automotive seat material. Real similar it would appear to your sofa back cushions.


I will keep the dogs nails trimmed anyway... I am grateful for the fabric we ended up with.


Velour huh.....nice.

Chris, that is a really nice looking interior you have there. I would like to have the wood tone vinyl floor over the one in my pics, but I can't be too choosie at my price range. I am really curious to see what my wife says about the velour when she gets home any minute now. At least it would be soft and cozy! And I like the idea of tightening it up a bit in the dinnette. The 2012 2304s we are also negotiating on, seems a bit dated compared to 2013.

Thanks Mark,


Like I said in my introductory posting over in the Newbies section, at $19,000, it wasn't exactly a steal, but it had everything we were looking for, was very lightly used, and came with an add-a-room, weight distribution hitch, exterior toolbox and a couple extra goodies.


It also still smelled new. It was 9 months old and used twice.


We like it...a whole lot. Couldn't find ever a new one like it in stock in the metro-Detroit area. Felt fortunate to find a pre-owned one just a little south of Toledo.


Mostly though, the missus really likes it.

Nothing and upholstery shop couldn't remedy for you! Sounds like you are happy with it otherwise so congrats! As for your experience finding new, I think it is the very reason FR retired the floorplan so quickly - dealers simply weren't putting them on their lots. We liked that model a lot. To the point we were ready to order, but were told we no longer could get one built.
