    Has anyone done it? We are remodeling the inside of our camper but the wife and I are debating on how to best go about updating our sofa. (Jayco refers to ours as an "J-Steel Sofa")
    We have tossed around ideas from fabric paint to, to simply a cover, to removing them completely and using all new material.

    One thing we haven't had much luck on options, is the end of the sofa next to the door. It's a curved wood piece with matching fabric sown around it. It also houses the fire extinguisher.

    Surely someone has done something with theirs besides completely removing it!? j-steel sofa.jpg

    Are those cushion covers or, is it fabric mounted to a board?
    I like that drop-leaf on your table.

    I removed mine, storage under sofa was worthless and so was the sofa. If you do remove the sofa you have to use that sofa end to support the wall or make something that will support the wall.....don't ask me how I know this if you know what I mean.

    I'll have to take a picture of the bottom, but it's not mounted to a board. The fabric is connected to the metal framing with spring coils.

    My cushions have the board inside of the cushion to use it for a bed with the bottom being some kind of lining instead of the cushion fabric.
