Help Request: Dog cover for couch

Hello

My wife and I just bought our first 2016 Miramar - well, our first RV really. We pick it up next Saturday.

Can anyone recommend a cover for the couch? Our dog will be joining us and we would like to get something to cover the couch when we pick the RV up.

Any links or recommendations would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.

We normally use a sheet or blanket draped over and tucked into the back.

Although they are pricey you can check out these folks.

Our cheaper route: we use a couple bathroom, carpet floor mats. Soft, comfy and easily washed.

We use a canvas dropcloth. Cheap & washable.

Our pups aren't allowed on the couch, besides they prefer their comforter (Walmart 20.00) on top of the bed

All,

We put down a "pee sheet" mattress protector then a light brown queen sized fitted sheet.

So far, so good.

Doc

Skymall to the rescue! Belasoft sofa protector.

Actually, my cousin owns a beautiful Irish Setter that rides in the back seat of their Land Rover Sport. She was so excited to find it! She purchased the seat protector from the Skymall Magazine while in the air a few years ago.

We used to use sheets on our fabric couch in our old motorhome. We now have leatherette in our new RV and the sheets slide right off no matter how much tucking we did. We found a reversible, quilted sofa cover on Amazon with an elastic strap that goes behind the back for $35. It works very well, still have to fix it once in awhile but overall very happy with it. It washes up very nice.
Keep in mind, we have three German Shepherds climbing on the sofa so we need something that's going to stay put! This one works!

Can you post or message a link to that. I have used sheets and blankets, but they come off so easy.

We have a cat ..Not declawed .. For our couch, we bought a queen size quilt at
KMart .. A sale item .. Looks good and has plenty of extra to tuck in ..
We have tried plush blankets .. Don't go there !!

Ok, I think I finally found something that works better than the cover I mentioned above. We have leatherette furniture. We took two very low pile 3X5 rugs with a rubber back and put them over the cushions with an over hang of about 7 inches in front of the cushions. It works so much better than anything we have tried. Two German Shepherd climb up and down on the couch and it barely moves. The rubber backing doesn't slide like the couch covers. The good thing is they match the couch and with the low pile, they vacuum off very well and are machine washable. I use a Clorox wipe to clean the exposed parts of the couch.
This won't work for cats with claws since they like to climb on the back of the couch.

Good find ! Sounds like that will work well ! I am sure several other folks will like that idea.
Yes...regarding the cat..we cover the complete leatherette couch..the quilt tucks in at the top..middle and bottom. In the the Axis, there is a space behind the couch for the table top, legs and ladder for the bunk. We had a covered foam piece from a previous camper, which fits exactly in the spot and gives KC a spot to lay near the window and keeps him from exploring under the couch !!
Amazing what we can do when faced with a challenge to keep our little buddies safe and happy !
