Comments for RV Mods: Upholstery foam sagging? Give it the bum’s rush!

  • I recently made new upholstery for my dinette. A trick for fitting the foam back in the fabric: slip on the largest plastic garbage bags you can find, insert into fabric, then reach in with arm and pull out plastic. Works like a charm without the huge struggle!

  • If you need to cut the foam, here’s a trick I learned from my wife’s brother. Get an electric carving knife from a thrift shop. the dual reciprocating blades cut the foam quickly and without pulling at it.

  • Most dinettes have such poor foam in the seats that it almost calls for going directly to your favorite re-upholsterer (or foam store for DIY’ers) right after you leave the dealer.
