    Upgraded foam in dinette cushions

    After 3 years of complaining about the lousy foam in the dinette cushions I finally upgraded it. I bought 2 pieces of Lux Foam-Hi Quality from the Foam Factory in MI. The cost was $103.00 which included $5 each for them to stuff the foam into the covering.....well worth it as I don't think I could have gotten the new foam into the cover.

    The difference is Night and Day. I should have done this sooner, so much more comfortable. I don't know why the manufacturer doesn't just put the better grade foam at the initial build. Best thing I've done to the TT so far this year.

    After our 3 day shakedown with our current I immediately place an order for a new mattress. I then repurposed that stiff foam they used in the mattress to replace the way to soft dinette cushions. Like you said, what a difference.

    Marcy just did ours for the second time. New foam and material. Look and feel great.

    Ditto for us - we recently replaced our cushion foam with 2lb 'HD Xfirm' foam and it's so much better. We should have done it sooner!

    "Lux-HQ Foam 5" Thick" on this page? https://www.thefoamfactory.com/opencellfoam/LUX-HQ.html

    Or is it different thickness? I need to measure.

    Dooley....I took the cushion into the store and they measured it. This is the dimensions of the foam they sold me...22 X 46 X 4 inches.
    It is the LUX-HQ Foam. $51.47 for each cushion. We have a U shaped dinette in our 2019 Imagine 2500RL. We just came back from an 9 day trip and I kept saying to my wife " the best $100 I spent on this rig is under my butt "!

    For someone who happens upon this thread in the future, I'll add measurements for the Transcend dinette, which is not U-shaped (and this may apply to other models). The bottom cushion is 41x20x4.
