Picking up a Stanton in 2 weeks a 2014 model with 15000 miles on a Merc Auto.

A few things i would like to do is.

1 re upholster the cab seats and all the upholstery.

2 Fit a new more modern head unit with sat nav etc if possible.

3 get some of the wine glasses to complete the set.

Also ask if anything to look out for or what would be good additions to the Stanton or Auto Sleeper in general.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated.

In Hebden Bridge West Yorks.

Welcome    handshake    

The wine glasses were Cristal D'arques (may be different now) if you can find any matching ones otherwise any similar would suffice. Original upholstery was made by Premier Furnishings of Ilkeston. There are also Regal Furnishings and Belfield who are both also in Ilkeston if you're getting quotes, they all do them in a day. Love Hebden Bridge by the way, stayed at the Caravan and Motorhome Club site there several times.

Very few wine glasses fit in the clips so yo do need the original or french/german wine tasting glasses that have a narrow bowl, fit well and are a lot cheaper.

I put a nut between the clips and the wall to act as a thick washer with longer screws. This brings the clips away from the wall so you can fit glasses with bigger bowls and feet (who doesn't want a bigger bowl)?

If you read through the thread linked above, you will find that a Stanton owner re-located his EC500 to create a lot more space. Don't start that if you have any doubts about your competency, for him, it was not a hard job.

I like to pretend I'm drinking less with a smaller glass and ignore the frequency of re-fill - in fact in hot weather with white wine its better not to pour to much (into the glass) at a time.

Welcome to the forum from a cold windy corner of Lincolnshire.
Our Rienza came with two of the so called wine glasses. They looked like Sherry glasses my grandmas and aunties used to drink out of at Christmas. 
We replaced them with decent sized plastic ones from Sainsbury’s. Considering how cheep they were they have lasted five years so far. Also management is less likely to break them.

We got plastic (should say acrylic) identical to those sold by  Sainsbury at £2, only we got them at Tesco for £1, money to burn some people   snigger

We don’t spend much on the motorhome so they were possibly a treat for it. The chairs we bought we were an equally big spend. £8 each from Lidle at least ten years ago. They have only been repaired once so far.
