31W Chateau Seat and upholstery issues

I have a 2017 Chateau 31W, I love the coach. The only issue that I have is that the Drivers seat and passenger seat material is inferior and terrible. I am having a heck of a time finding seat covers that fit or even having the upholstery replaced. The couch is in the same condition. the material is falling apart. Part of the Dinning table seats that has both vinyl and cloth, the vinyl is falling apart. Any suggestions. I even took to my dealer and they said, yes, that is an issue with Thor. I said great. I asked them for help. They suggested an upholsterer and his prices were well over $2,500. Of course Thor says we fired those guys who did the work with no suggestions or even some help.

A lot of the Thor seats were done by Flex Steel. You can check with them because I believe they have higher quality seat covers that can be used as replacements.

That is not just an issue with Thor. Many MH manufacturers from about 2014 to 2017 were burnt by bad material from a supplier that no longer exists.
Many people on this forum, myself included, have replaced the captains chairs with new ones from https://shop4seats.com/.

Their prices are reasonable and you get a much better product but they currently have a long lead time between order and fulfilment.

They also sell RV furniture and some have bought replacement couches and dinettes from them as well.

That material was bonded leather and it's pure junk. Cheap which is why during those years is was prevalent, but it will fail by peeling.
