2012 SV264 dinette seats too soft

What is the density of the dinette seat foam? I am just sitting on the wood.
The sofa cushions feel perfect to me.
What is a good, firm density that will allow me to sit for a couple hours while we play games?
Thanks!

Yea, I know what you mean. The first time we used our camper, I was thinking there is no way this is going to work, I could feel the wood under me. I went online and found a company that sells foam in custom cut sizes. ordered replacements and switched out the foam. Sorry, I do not remember the web site or the density. I think I went with "medium to high". It has worked out very well, and was not much money.

I google searched and found lots of suppliers, here's one of them... High Density Foam, Custom Cushions, Upholstery Foam, Cushion Replacement, Mattress Pad

You could order a partial sheet the right thickness/density and cut your own. An electric knife works great for cutting form.

I had to replace the foam in my brand new cushions in my FR 220 TT after the first trip. I was also sitting on the board under the cushions. I got my replacement cushions from the link below by just sending them the cushion covers. They came back with a bid and the service was great. We are really happy we replaced the foam to high density. If you look at the video on this website it is really helpful.

Looks like 1.5 to 1.8 lb per cubic foot should do the trick.
Thank you all!
