We just bought our first RV, a 2010 FR Salem 30QBSS, and it has UGLY fabric just... everywhere in there. It's that corduroy stuff that absorbs every speck of dust and every smell and icky thing that comes by. So I'm eager to reupholster it with a vinyl because in a year we plan to go Full Time RV with a toddler who has spent about an hour in it so far and already spilled on a cushion.
Also, I'm not at all concerned with the small space (some of the apartments we've lived in...) but, I WILL get depressed if I have to look at that horrific pattern every day. I'll go all "Yellow Wallpaper". Seriously, who designed this? The floors and cabinets and walls I really like, they're all attractive shades of oak and brown and the countertops are actually pretty but some crazy person threw this fabric down and patted themselves on the back and they should be smacked for it.
I've seen some good tutorials and I'm an avid DIYer and seamstress so I'm not too worried about a lot of the work to reupholster, but one thing I cannot find a good answer to is how to reupholster those daggum fabric button caps that go over the screws. There are 42! Please, if you have encountered this and found a good solution enlighten me.
Any other general advice you have for reupholstering would be much appreciated.
I am most daunted by the idea of the couch, so if you've experienced this, let me know your tips and tricks!
