Recommendations for front seat covers

Post by ymfb1 on Tue Jun 27, 2017 4:18 pm

We put seat covers in the VW T5, not as nice as the seats, but there is no doubt the seats have benefited.  The Kingham seats are already covered by AS but we might consider something more durable, We are interested in what have others done ?

Hi this is the website or the firm that supplied and fitted our seat covers they do specialise in VW.
Not cheap but excellent Quality

My wife tied some tapes to the corners of some bath towels and we tie the tapes around the headrests and drape the towels over seats and backrests - works great for us as they are easilyremoved for washng and very comfortable.

Funny you should say that Ron. That's almost exactly what's on the Job Sheet for this week.

We won't bother with the backrests as we only want to protect the seats from the mucky mutt. We're planning to unpick an old seat cover and use the bits as a template. Mrs Gromit is just off shopping and plans to see if Matalan have anything suitable and fairly cheap - they may have some durable "throws" that will do the job. Otherwise it will be the old bath towel, as you suggest.
Probably not what the OP is wanting, but it's always good to throw other ideas into the pot!  up!

You are right not what OP (me) is looking for, but so far we have drawn a blank so this is what we will go for until we do find something like the T5 Inka covers

I'm wondering about these. They are so cheap it wouldn't matter if they are not much good - and at that price they probably won't be!!! If the photo is anything like realistic they don't look too bad, and if they only lasted a season it would be OK.

Hmmmmmm???? If they look too cheap they probably are, but I might give them a try anyway. It's only to protect against mucky paws, and we don't much care if they are not a match.

P.S. Not too sure about this though??

We gave up trying to find what we wanted on line and bought some heavy duty 4 x 4 seat covers from Halfords.

A possibility for anyone else looking for covers is:

http://www.motorhomeseatcovers.co.uk/

We've had two sets from them now, one for a Fiat and one set for our current Peugeot. Prompt service, a good selection of patterns and not wickedly expensive.
