Just think of how long that FAUX leather would have lasted in you house. You get what you pay for when it comes to ANYTHING RV! From bumper to bumper it all comes down to the $$$. Quality is non existent in the RV world. I wish people would do the research BEFORE they buy not After the problems start.
I have purchased several items of bonded leather that has held up great even with Collies using it as a bed. It was Flash Furniture, Diplomat model. A sofa, love seat and chair was around $1400. shipped. The trouble is it does not come apart to get it into a RV. I was luck in having a large door. They sell this as office furniture.

A friend's family business is building limo's and such.

I asked him about 'bonded leather' furniture and he warned me away from anything that wasn't from a solid company with a LOT of experience in vehicle furniture.

It seems the stuff intended for a S & B won't stand up to the high temperatures of a sealed up vehicle sitting in the sunshine. Interior temps can rise to more than 40 deg. over outside temps in just an hour on a hot sunny day.

We get a lot of that on here. Drive-by posts. Why bother?

The bonded leather in my seasonal has been in extreme cold, down to -45 degrees but no extreme heat. It has had several generation's of Collies using it as a bed and held up very well. No holes, no rips and no delamination. It's very thick compared to the paper thin RV product. I've owned the love seat for ten years now. I do not know how it would handle extreme heat in southern climates.

Soooo, you bought......snip


it has everything to do with RV'ing as it is made specifically for RV's by Lippert.. And i was just ASSUMING he meant he purchased it in 2016...
AND like MOST posters, they start off with a bang, then realize the info they can actually get from staying around

To the OP..

our TP furniture held up great in our 2016...


Well, alrighty! I shall stand corrected! [emoticon][emoticon]

I failed to make the connection of Lippert to furniture to RVing. Thought he was talking residential stuff and I thought all that furniture wouldn't fit in an RV.

I have seen a lot of one time posters show up to hammer a product, then you never hear from them again.

Oh well, live and learn! Thanks. [emoticon]


[emoticon] . I agree with everything above..Its actually funny... I never heard of Thomas Payne furniture until,the RV had it... I probably would have reacted the same....

Yes, I did mean October 2016 (purchase date)...my error. No, nothing fishy about my first post. I wanted it to appear in a forum that would be read by a lot of RVers, because it is pitiful how Lippert can get away with selling high-priced junk to RVers who need furniture to fit their spaces.

There is another post in travel trilers similar to yours. Thomas Pain is junk RV furniture suggest residential furniture if it will fit through the door.

Geez, and we wonder why forum participation has fallen off. Give it a few more years and it's going to be just a few crotchety old people left doing nothing but throwing out snarky comments.
Give people a break here. Who cares if it's a newby posting, I wouldn't want to come back around either given the tone of some of these threads. We tend to bash people when they have a complaint, bash them when they asked a question thats been asked many times and be told to use the search funtion, etc As I said give them a break. [emoticon]

AMEN...forums everywhere are loaded with people like this.
