    Reinvigorate your Leisure Vehicle Upholstery


    There’s something very uniquely special about an old leisure vehicle. Complete with their own relaxing nature, not many things can scream peace and serenity more than a transportation medium that can both house you as well as take you away from the everyday aggravation that the world can bring.

    Unfortunately, just as with most things that we have come to adore, beloved motorhomes, narrowboats and even horseboxes can begin to dwindle in quality over time. It isn’t rare in the slightest to notice an unloved caravan left to deteriorate on a driveway or in a garage. A crying shame considering the joy that they would have once been able to provide.

    There is a solution to finding that lost sense of past enjoyment without forking out the cost of a brand new vehicle. Leisure vehicle upholstery can breathe a brand new lease of life into that semiretired family conveyance device longing to be rediscovered.

    In a few simple steps and a little time and dedication, you could once again be revelling anywhere across the land in your leisure vehicle. Before you start pondering your next trip though, you may want to consider these points to help get your restoration project off the ground and into fruition.

    What Type of Vehicle Is It?

    This may seem like a very obvious, or even pointless question, but making sure that any potential leisure vehicle upholstery company is aware of the vehicle coming in is a necessity. Most businesses that specialise in restoration motor vehicles will accommodate for all makes and models but there is a chance that some will be unable to help – particularly if your project is a speed or narrowboat.

    Makes and models of different motorhomes, horseboxes and boats vary by size and upholstery area so quotes for individual jobs are likely to be bespoke. You don’t want to turn up for the job and be told that your expected cost is going to be higher as a result of misinformation. Of course, it is probably best to let any company you wish to undertake work have a look at your vehicle before committing to anything.

    What Actually Needs to Be Done?

    Again perhaps somewhat fairly obvious, recognising exactly what work needs carrying out is a very important aspect of any motor vehicle restoration plan. Either yourself, a leisure vehicle upholstery company or a combination of the both of you can identify whether you need a total upholstery renovation or your foam just needs refilling.

    By understanding requirements, you shouldn’t find too many surprises springing from unknown places costing you more money than needs be.

    It may also be that you want to completely reupholster your carrier, to give an even stronger spark of life.

    Which Materials Do You Want to Use?

    There is no universally accepted or undisputed ideal fabric or material to be used in cushions and seating arrangements – what one person considers beautiful, another will despise; especially in terms of design and overall appearance.

    Most companies will offer the chance to view and feel fabrics before any work begins. Take full advantage of this and don’t be shy to ask to have samples held up against your current backdrop to gauge an idea of how they will look upon completion.

    What Kind of Time Frame Do You Want to Be Working Towards?

    Your finished article is hopefully going to be something that you are proud to call your own and a leisure vehicle upholstery company is delighted to have completed.

    Different dealers will have different specified periods of time in which they will have your work completed. Some companies, such as ourselves offer a one day service, solely focusing on finishing one job in one day, usually from first thing in the morning to right up to closing time.

    If you are venturing far away from home to have work done, some same day upholsterers offer a complimentary overnight hook up. Using such a service would mean that you travel to the destination on the eve of the project commencing. You would be provided with an electric point and fresh water and vacate your vehicle in the morning for upholsterers to start to bring your dream motorhome, horsebox, speedboat or narrowboat to life.

    • Top quality service, top quality staff who are very helpful, even supplied and covered a cushion we never knew was part of the furnishings, the whole experience was brilliant from start to finish, 5 stars, well done Mick and his team - Mr Brazier

    • REGAL FURNISHING. WOW!!, WOW!! Great service, we came to look at the vast range of fabrics for our Eura Mobil 810 Integra for a full re-upholstery, very hard to choose as there are so many, we took our time and we were left to choose. We finally decided on a fabric refit. After making our choice we booked in for the refit, being very popular there is a short wait, we did not mind, because getting a great job was the most important.
      However when we got home, and after looking at some of the refits in leather, we turned up to see Mick again, saying "we had changed our minds" and then decided to go for the full leather refit.
      Nothing was a problem for Mick and his excellent team, he went through every stage of the work to be carried out, making special notes of things we wanted, and the things we did not.
      Our van is quite large and we left it at Regal Furnishings in the very secure compound.
      The work was carried out in a very timely manner, and ready for us to collect on the given time and date.
      The surprising thing for us apart from the excellent job of work, was Mick's attention to detail, and actually getting the job done to a very tight budget .
      There are plenty of upholsterers out there, but one that specialises in motor homes, that has secure parking for overnight stops if needed, are few and far between!
      The reviews for regal are exemplary and we had no doubt who would be doing our refit.
      Mick had even matched the curtains and the overhead cab bed.
      We would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Regal Upholstery to our family and friends - David Bosworth

    • Not long returned having had my Motorhome interior updated. Curtains, Trims, Foam the lot. On the day I arrived there had been a scare for one of the teams family, they had been called away as you would understand. The result was they were short handed! The difference......nothing. The team across the operation simply pulled together and provided a fantastic service. Albeit they probably felt the pressure!
      The complete process was perfect, nice people, nice job, and the weather was nice too. I’ll go back as and when required. Many thanks - W D

    • Had our upholstery and curtains replaced yesterday. Our 11 year old Apache Autotrail now looks as good as new. Mick and the team at Regal are amazing. Their attention to detail is phenomenal and they are a really friendly group of people. We shall be recommending them to everyone - Beverley Porrett

    • Excellent friendly service. We only had a small job done, a padded end panel for our motorhome. Not only was the cost so reasonable they did a fabulous job and although it was a low cost job we received impeccable service by Mick. Thank you so much for the lovely job you did for us 😊 - Bridget Bales

    • Excellent lovely job many thanks to the team - Kim Gough

    • Excellent happy management and employees - Sylvia Williams

    • The best in the country. Service is fantastic and quick. Good selection of materials to choose from professional advice and always happy smiling staff - Katarzyna Thorp

    • I'm absolutely blown away by the service and quality of the work that mick and his team carried out on my Hamish, I'm delighted from start to finish his team are friendly and do a great job. Thank you - Mark Kingston

    • Second time we have had work done here and can't fault them. Looked after by good staff and the best workmanship. Thank you - Jane Buxton

    • Had our caravan refurbished including a double bed and curtains with tie backs and what a fantastic job Mick and the whole team have made.
      It has made our 14 year old caravan better than when it was brand new!
      Great choice of fabric and foam - Could have leather in choice of colours too.
      Got a few quotes from other companies but Regal furnishings are by far the best - Jane Hutch

    • Workmanship first rate. So pleased with the results. Would recommend them - Sheila Mclean

    • Brilliant service. Quality work really good to deal with - Mr Todd

    • So Very Happy With Your Service.
      What makes Regal Furnishings a great company is the way you resolved issues when things went wrong.
      My wife and I were delighted with the quality of workmanship you demonstrated when re-upholstering our Motor-home recently. Sadly though, there was a problem with an unpleasant odour coming from the foam that was used.
      The way that Mick and the team rallied around was amazing. The foam was replaced without fuss or quibble, even though many members of the team couldn't smell the problem the same way my wife and I could.
      I loved the fact that your prime concern was to ensure the customer was happy and everything was done with such good grace. So heartfelt thanks to all you folk at Regal Furnishings. You really have helped us fall back in love with our Motor-home once again.
      We'd happily recommend you to anyone wanting a great job together with first class service.
      Many thanks again - Martin & Heather Williams

    • To all the Staff at Regal, Thank you for the lovely job you made of our upholstery and thanks for dealing with Aviva on our behalf - Mr & Mrs Eborall

      Mr & Mrs Eborall

    • Fantastic service from Regal!! Excellent communications, friendly, very helpful staff and superb standard of workmanship. Highly recommended - Mrs Webb

    • Hi, Had my Motorhome re furnished today to Leather and would like to say what a top quality job the team did. The team in Derby were welcoming professional friendly and attentive. Many thanks to you all great job looks fantastic - Mr Devere

    • Hi, just want to say how incredibly pleased I am with the new upholstery in our motorhome. The finish is just exceptional! It has totally exceeded my expectations and I am so pleased that we brought the van to your firm, despite having options closer to Norfolk. I have posted on an Autotrail Facebook group and people are really impressed. I found your company via such a group. James said how lovely all the staff were. Please pass our thanks on to your team - Ms Peck

    • Before you decide to reupholster your motorhome or caravan, of course you do your homework. However take my word and many others, save your time and go straight to these folks at Regal Furnishings. You will get a friendly, fast, efficient, first class job done, at a market beating rate.
      From the minute you arrive (day one) to the day you leave (day two) the staff cannot be more accommodating and helpful. Everything is dealt with in their stride and the end result is a gem!
      Finally may I say that if all businesses were run like Regal's, what a better place the world would be for customers.
      Thank you to Mick and the team once again, warmest regards.
