cushions for benches in permy
« on: Oct 14, 2019, 11:52 AM »
morning gents,  so this summer i was hoping to score some cushions out of an old camper trailer 20"x60" or so for the permy but didn't have any luck.  i bought a new matress and now have an old memory foam topper i'm thinking i'll cut to size, double up, cover with fabric and staple to a piece of plywood. 

 anyone out there come up with anything similar or better?

That is exactly what I plan to do for mine actually. I have a queen memory foam topper that I was going to cut to size and then cover.

They sell them all over for RVís. One that I like is the teddy bear mattress cover made by Lippert. Only issue is I am worried if water/fish gets on it that itíll soak through/stain

I believe 28Ē is the smallest Iíve seen for these covers.

Is there any good water proof covers?

I use these as a floor in my pop up. Might work ok for your needs also.

 thanks miz, that's what is on my benches in the shack right now.  i plan to spend quite a few nights in the shack this winter so my idea is to build these cushions to sit on length wise while fishing during the day and then flip them width wise across the shack as a platform for sleeping on (shack is plywood truck box camper style).  i think my original plan should work ...hopefully!

 still open to any ideas as to what material to use to cover the memory foam.  something somewhat water/slime/whiskey-proof.

How about slicing up a good ATV cover and making covers.  Or maybe an old boat cover.

Ha. If you drank that whiskey instead of spilling it you would have no issues with comfort. Just kidding around. Let me know if you get it figured out. I am in the process of figuring out basic comforts in my new hard shack as well. Good luck to you.
