I bought 2 sets of covers when we bought our MH over 6 years ago from a company off eBay. Sorry, I can’t remember quite who it was for now

They weren’t the cheapest,and I also ordered armrest covers to suit at the same time. I’ve got a feeling it was around £70/80 per pair.

I got 2 sets so we could remove them for washing and to even out the wear. They are wonderful.

I’ve had a quick look on eBay , type in motorhome seat covers, and got a hit from a company called carseatcovers and found sets at £79.99 maybe the same company? They are made in UK vehicle specific and on mine fit a treat.

I’ve looked again on eBay, this time typing in “Fiat Ducato motorhome seat covers”
That gets a couple of useful makers.

Look for seller “vancovers161” I’m positive these are the ones I’ve got.

Just had a quick scan ... not cheap, but if they protect ...

I am looking for some that are waterproof. Had half an idea of sewing some from waterproof bed protectors (red wine spillages!) and them covering those with something prettier .... but realistically, I won’t have time for the limited time we are in the UK.

Why do they make arm rests so short, I can just get me elbows on them.

One of my Steiff bears has long arms as well Pugley 😉

I wouldn’t go for waterproof unless it was very short term use or in a van, as they will get hot when you’re sat on them much like the old vinyl seats cars used to use.

If you must then a company I used to buy from called HDC, Heavy Duty Covers, are the ones to go for as they’re tailored to suit. A decent motor factor will have them in a range of colours, but make sure they’re HDC

In summer we use extra large beach towels on our cab seats tied around the headrests.

Two matching pairs of socks fit nicely over the armrests to protect them. 🙂

I’ve done some more searching;g, and the same company in Stockport is on eBay in several forms all the same people.

Have a look at item number 182448363780 to give you a better idea.

Thanks for the photos Simon. They loook good. We have always used a couple of Dunelm throws over ours. Mine seems to stay in place but OH’s gets dragged out with him almost every time he climbs out of the cab! - The cat likes the nice fleeces though! 😺
