Yes, north of Portland. I would like their name if you don't mind. I went by an auto shop that advertised upholstery services. Their upholstery section was in the same room as the oil change bay; quite the mess.

Glad get some ideas about reupholstering, but we are pretty ticked off that the Flex Steel recliner in our 2015 Newmarket Ventana LE is shedding it’s skin after only 4 years of limited use. The sofa and captain’s chairs are made of a different material and aren’t wearing out, but the recliner is a mess. What a disappointment!

On newer units like yours some manufacturers are offering good will assistance in dealing with this issue. Talk to your dealer.

We also have a 2015 Ventana LE with a passenger seat that started peeling. We contacted our dealership who contacted Newmar. They replaced the driver and passenger seat for free because they said in 2015 they had had some faulty upholstery. We were very pleased with this outcome.

Any decent upholstery shop can do the job. It will save you money if you take it out and bring them the pieces. Much less than buying new and you will know what you are getting.

I have same problem with my Upholstery. It gets assaulted daily by skin oils, hair, dust, food crumbs, and spills.Even my chairs and sofas are starting to look worse. I am thinking to order this steam cleaner (https://steamcleanerhelp.com/best-steam-cleaner-furniture-upholstery/) to clean the Upholstery, sofa, and couch. What do you think?

We had our captain's chairs reupholstered by a woman who does work for Mastercraft Furniture in Shipshewana. They make furniture for RV's and they handle ordering the fabric and scheduling the job. We did, however, have to remove the seats and take them to the Mastercraft store and picked them up with they were done about a week later. They explained that the original fabric is cheap and what the manufacturerers put in the coaches, so we ordered a much better quality fabric. It wasn't cheap, but still about half the price of buying two new chairs. She did a very nice job on them and we are really happy with the result.
