Hi Deborah, I would watch craigslist in your area.I see a lot of parts for sale here in north east ohio.

I can suggest on replacement of dinette cushions, is to aquire new foam,(home depot,Lowes, Craft stores etc.). Select a pattern of fabric,( Fabric stores,Wally's etc.) And make your own. OK,, ,IF,, you are not very good at sewing,, There are several upholstery places, (you can check with auto collision reapair facilities).

Also, on the good ole WEB, you can order presewn covers and even the foam inserts. If your remodeling for you own particular taste you can use your imagination and just go with a simple pattern or go wild child.

Material selection is endless. I only suggest this, because 80% of RV owners *Redesign their interiors to their own taste and style. There are several Winnies out and about, along with miscl parts. I would suggest running an additional ad in Craigslist in your local area and surrounding towns. I would NOT recommend buying OLD USED cushions,, They will more then likely need to be replaced,(age and wear and tear and of course funk). Several online RV supply outlets have replacement Fridges for farley decent prices,, all depends if you want a single 110V, 2 way, (gas/electric). etc.. 2 door or single door.

When I have come across an older fridge with *issues, I have gone with a replacement as to what the customer needed.  Hope this helped a little... Good luck with the restore/remodel.

P.S.  Post some pics of before and after and share your restoration..

well hi everyone a small update on our project,the couch went to the reupholster ,dinette set was cleaned and patched good for a while we are going to travel tomorrow being Saturday a couple miles outside of chico ca. to purchase a fridge,and microwave,i painted the kitchen area white ,looks cleaner,scrued and scrubbed some more now hubby will work on the outsides batteries charged,looking into replacing the water heater,filling the propane tanks,and last but not least a smog ck it seems overwhelming at times for both of us since hubby is still full time working but one day at a time hopefully this summer we will be able to take small trips will keep you up dated have a great weekend everyone 

Chico CA...Im in anderson ca...80 miles north...howdy neighbor! Dont know what fridge you had. Finding the right model is important as to how it fits up. Hope you got all the measurements of your existing and the new so you know whats up there. Its HxWxD of the hole for everything! Same goes for WHeater. Cross ref those so you get the right fit or post up and we can advise. Does that have the early opd fill valve onthe lp tank? Post a pic if there is issues filling or you need a heads up there. If its got the big brass body valve with the knob on top and a 1/4" line on it, you got to open the top knob completely and push the plunger on the bottom to get it to fill. I just get a microwave from walmart...rvs models are the same with a different moniker and 3 times the price. Save the trim piece if it has one and retro fit to the new one...carefully. Enjoy your new baby...a welcome addition to any family!

are your dinette cushions missing completely? I have a trailer that i've been using for parts, I am not using the dinette at all. It is complete, although in rough shape, if you used the cushions they need a good cleaning and it wouldn't hurt to have them re-upholstered. let me know what you think! 

I live in Sandusky OH


thank you so much for your offer looking at them they are a different shape than mine I cleaned mine and repaired them they came out pretty well considering how old they are thanks again
