I've just finished revamping the interior of my 1978 Eriba Caravan. I'm really pleased with the results. I'm now all ready to go on my first weekend away on the 7th of February.

Hi, yes I made the seat covers myself. They were reasonably easy to make. I looked up different methods on the internet first though as I wasn't sure how to tackle it. I can sew clothes very easily but had no idea where to start for box seat cushions.

I found this blog very easy to follow:

That looks really good, well done!

I made my covers with an undone end seam, which closes with large press studs, so that I can take them off to wash them every so often.
