Sofitel style cushions comfort

johntreacyjohntreacy Posts: 19Member
I'm looking for comments from folks who have Sofitel style faux leather cushions - are they comfortable to sleep on? It seems like they'd be ok for sitting on, but that bedding would want to slide around, compared to cloth upholstery. 
Thanks,
John

    I love my red faux leather cushions. They’re not slippery at all, and they’ve stood up to 2.5 years of at least 4 months of traveling each year with a 12 lb Shih Tzu.

    I did have the foam replaced this summer with nüCamp’s latest and greatest more firm foam, with is better than the original foam.

    Thanks, @Verna! Awkward question, but any issues with stickiness from warm bodies in the summer?

    @johntreacy, we have a 2017 sofitel and love the faux leather. In fact I consider the upholstery a necessity, because we are a family of 4. When I ordered the t@b our boys were 9 and 10 years old and in the full bloom of youth, red pop, Hawaiian punch and lots of sticky, highly colored fruit juices. As it is, they come into the t@b and sit down, covered with everything they can get into and the quick cleanup is wonderful. Now to your sleeping question-most of the owners I have met or spoken with have or use some additional type of bedding/padding. We use a 3" memory foam topper over the t@b cushions. With four of us, there is more than the usual amount of sleep activity going on, and the foam topper doesn't move. We roll it up and stash it every morning and unroll and deploy it every evening, as every inch of space is crucial. The breathability of the foam topper is what is most important there. We do most of our travelling during hot summer months, and if the temperatures are hot enough to make everyone truly uncomfortable, the a/c is running. But usually we are outside and enjoying that. That upholstery is what made the choice of a sofitel model a must for us, and after 18,000+ miles, over 30 states (including the desert southwest) and 8 weeks of travel with the 4 of us, we wouldn't change anything.

    @johntreacy, I wear shorts all summer, and the material does not stick to my skin. I sleep on an LL Bean Camp Futon inflatable mattress with a sheet on top of it, so there’s no problem at night either.

    Thanks! Sounds like a topper of some sort is recommended, regardless of Sofitel or not.
    I've searched the forum but so far I cannot find - does anyone have the dimensions of the 320 s/u bed area sections? I know its 73x70, but I'm interested in how that is divided by the different areas and cushions that comprise it.
