Hi, has anyone bought replacement seat covers for driver and passenger seats in an an auto sleeper Nuevo. 2005 Peugeot boxer. Our seat covers are slightly frayed and a little dog eared, So it is more cosmetic than protective. We have briefly thought about full re-upholstery, but think it may be too pricey.  many thanks for any advice. Wife of Richard rolleyes

We' re in the process of having removable  loose covers made for the cab and hab seats of our 2014 Broadway. Nothing wrong with the upholstery other than we really cannot live with the awful pattern. I have made loose covers for a previous van but they don't quite fit this one. I've also tried throws etc.

I have tried all the big names in boat, caravan and motorhome reupholstery but either they do not do loose covers at all or the fabric they offer is one stage worse than we have as far as jazzy patterns goes. The reupholstery fabric they offer looks fine but no point in having new seats reupholstered.

More in hope than expectation I phoned Plumbs. Yes, they will do it and smeonec is coming on Tuesday to measure and show us fabric. Watch this space !

We have had measurements taken, chosen the fabric and are waiting for them to be made. Plumbs will not make fitted cab seat covers as we hoped though they would do a sort of slip cover - not unlike the sort of things that are put on dining chairs for weddings etc. We've chosen a plain, knobbly creamy/ honey colour for the bench seats and decided that the small amount of Moonbeam Green ( think that's what its called) on the cab seats is liveable with and looks well with the rest so will not cover them. 

I've also found some curtains that I hope will pull everything together and so am about to cut them up and make a cab curtain and 2 new window curtains.

Never really done coordinated before but we seem to spend more and more time in the van so can't live with the Moonbeam Green much longer.

Have you tried contacting Relux/Premier in Ilkeston who most likely made the original covers.
Had a long chat with them at Peterborough and they can supply loose covers maybe even in the correct fabric to match or if you are not too bothered about the match may even have a set pre-made that they are looking to clear out of the warehouse at reasonable cost
Could be worth a phone call

We had a look at their loose cover sample fabrics David and were not keen on them.  We wanted something plain and neutral in colour and not slippery or synthetic feeling.

The original upholstery is as new- it's only 2 years old and has been covered all the time. Snag is that we really do not like the pattern.

Hi Quilter

Got to admit I was thinking more about Richard when I replied you seem to be already sorted
