I never heard the term "rebound" leather before. Is that the same as faux leather or bonded leather? I assume its not real leather used in these campers?

treaves- if you post the year, make and model of your camper, Christopher Columbus is a factor rep and can help you more specifically.

When we ordered our Columbus the Fabric couch was standard and we made sure to order the leather due to the fact I was afraid that if our 2 labs get on the couch that their toe nails would snag the fabric. Also the dog hair getting stuck in the fabric was another reason we opted for leather.

Ya, I've e-mailed him. My understanding from this forum is that a few things have been changed and 'updated/upgraded/ over the last few months at the factory.

Leather is more comfortable, easier to clean/keep clean and contrary to JoelEk - it really does not stick to sweaty skin. I have had leather furniture and leather in vehicles, it does really get hot and seems to stick if in the sun but once the surface moisture burns off, it is really quite pleasant. The fabric will absorb more body oil and sweat then tend to smell after a few years but it should not be a problem. As most of you know - any RV does the following:
Parties 6, Feeds 4, Sleeps 2
