Upholstery

After three years with using great care our quasi leather is losing its surface is peeling off. Anyone have this problem. Our coach is spotless except for this. Just two of us live in the coach part of the year.

Anyone experienced this. We are thinking about getting real leather upholstery!!!!!!

Re: upholstery

Yes, and there's another thread discussing this very problem. You are not alone.

The fake-leather fabric that was used on many Thor coaches will not last. The fabric on the sofa of my 2015 Axis was beginning to disintegrate, so I just recently replaced it with theater seating.

That “pleather” used by many furniture manufacturers is notorious for peeling and flaking.

Yeah, whenever I winterized the RV, I got a couple of Armor all towelettes and wiped down everything inside that had that type of covering. Dash, seats, panel, chairs and couch. Lots of work winterizing an RV, inside and outside. Long list too.
