We replaced our dinette foam as well, but up here the cost is astronomical for high density foam.

A local upholstery store tells me that foam prices have gone through the roof. Anybody else have that experience. 200 bucks seems cheap to me right now.

My two are shorter. Hoping I can get them out the door for 100 USD or less. I can justify that.

Just replaced 2 dinette cushions last month. Ordered from the foamfactory.com Very pleased with the result. Cost was low. Working on new top bunk mattresses from the foam factory now.

Good deal at Foam Factory

I started this post. I bought three pieces of Cushion, Lux Foam - High Quality from Foam Factory. Two pieces were approximately 4" x 22" x 43" and one piece was 4" x 19" x 36". Total price shipped to my door was $123.21. Arrived within a week of ordering.


We went camping this weekend. While seated at the dinette we thoroughly enjoyed the new foam.

Thumbs up It’s well worth doing

Heck of a deal. It was expensive when I had mine done locally four years ago. I had two cushions done and I remember thinking it would put a dent in my daily credit card limit I saw one of the news articles about foam prices going up so I cringe to think what the cost would be now.

Nonetheless, it was well worth it. We’re on our fourth season this year and I now enjoy sitting in the TT to read a book for longer than 10 minutes at a time. The bonus for me for having the local company do it was that they put the covers back on the foam pieces. I didn’t have to wrestle with them and they did an all-around great job.

One thing to consider. I replaced only the seat cushions. I didn’t replace the foam in the seat backs because there’s less pressure on them and I haven’t noticed a problem.

replacing dinette foam

We took our cushions into a place called "Cushion World" in Denver and they replaced the foam on our cushions with what they called "standard foam" much is much better than what came in out Flagstaff trailer. it is firmer and after using the trailer last year a few times we are still happy with the cushions.

Just the cushions

We also just replaced the foam in the cushions and not the backs. Seemed to be the way to go. Putting the foam back into the covers wasn't difficult. The original foam had plastic covers. Putting them over the new foam let it slide in easily.

I bought enough high density 3" and 4" foam to replace 3 dinette cushions and backs for less than $200 from Amazon. If you need 5", glue 1" to 4". Spray glue works great. Trace pattern from old foam, cut with electric knife (you will probably wear the blades out, so get a new set for the kitchen).

Glue parts with spray adhesive. Been using the new ones two years now.
My bottom no longer hits the frame- nice!

Wrapping with batting will make it easier to slide in the covers.

OK, y'all have convinced me - we're going to replace the foam in our cushions. It looks like some folks used 5" thick Lux HQ foam and others used 4". I measured the cushions from our dinette and with the cover on they measure just under 4 1/2". Can we use 5" foam with the Dacron wrap or would that be too much strain for the cover material?

Edit - I went back and pulled foam out of the cushion and the existing foam is 4", the batting/wrap plus the compression from the cover must plump it up a little.

We replaced with the same foam. I would go with the 4 inch foam . You would have a hard time squeezing the 5 inch into your covers. The new foam is hard to compress but feels great on your butt.

I ordered a roll of foam and some generic cushion covers from Amazon. The foam is long enough to cut to size to replace both dinette cushions. It's 5" thick, and nice and firm. The covers are sized to cover a love seat cushion (medium), and are available in lots of colors. I just love the look and feel, and my legs and bottom wish I'd done this sooner! Total cost was about $100
