Recliner and Couch Separating at Seam

My 5th wheel is now slightly over 2 years with probably 8 camping trips under its belt. On the last trip I noticed that the 2 recliners and couch are all separating at the seams. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Gene

One of my "faux" leather recliners started to have the material start to flake. It was replaced under warranty. The second one is going bad now, well out of warranty. The couch is fine. I guess it is just cheap furniture.

Just need to vent

I agree with you on the "faux" leather. I looked under the furniture to find the manufacturer and it's Lippert Furniture made in China. I am so disgusted and embarrassed by the appearance of such little used furniture. Now I'm to the point of throwing it into the trash and replacing it. Thanks Lippert

They must change supplies on a weekly or monthly basis. Ours are 3 years old and used between 9 & 10 months a year to live in and still it great shape, no flaking or split seams.

Last time I checked, Lippert is located in Goshen, Indiana and not China. Maybe the fiber filling or fabric is made in China but the furniture isn't.

Our 2014 Redwood's furniture was Williamsburg Furniture. It held up well but the brand used before in 2012 did not as I had seen some where the fabric just came apart in flakes.

Mine was built in September 2011 and has been lived in full time for nearly 3 years. I just now had one of the recliners starting to crack and flake. But I must say it is not the most comfortable furniture. I will look for replacements this year but will try to steer away from RV furniture.

It is interesting why there is so much variation from unit to unit over the years. Ours is a 2012 36RL (built in Sept. 2011). Our average use has been around 3 to 4 months per year over the past 6 years. So far no evidence of flaking on the fake leather. Our biggest complaint is that the recliner chairs are just not very comfortable.

Guy I bet we have the same furniture as I think ours were made the same month.
