Re: Replacing V berth foam material

We had our cushions professionally done. The material on top is a soft furniture fabric supplied by the canvas maker. The bottoms are phifertex to help the cushions breathe. She recommended a "medium firm" foam.

One item that I haven't heard mentioned is the need to back cut the cushions so they fit snugly against the curve of the berth so there's no gap for you or for things to fall into. We also took her two sets of sheets my wife picked out and had her make fitted sheets.

I'd still like to try the Foli system under these cushions.
