We bought a new 2013 Mirada which we really like-for the most part. Within a short time we noticed that the skin was peeling off both captain chairs, the sofa and the kitchen table.

We called Coachman and they said they or the manufacturer could do nothing since "they didn't know our usage routine." We have used the motorhome little recently since my husband had several medical issues including open heart surgery. Each time we use it we wind up sweeping the small pieces up. When we first noticed the problem we started putting a sheet over the chairs and sofa which really didn't help much. We travel mostly in the northwest where the nights are usually cool.

We never heard of this happening to anyone before and had three motorhomes before the Mirada with no similar problems.

With my husbands health improving we want to travel a least a couple more years but are frankly embarrassed by the condition of the furniture. Cornelius DePree-239-498-3994-nealdepree@yahoo.com-9238 Coachhouse Lane ,Estero, Florida 33928

I have a 2014 Mirada RV and the couch, dinette booth seats and captain chairs are also peeling. As soon as we got it, I used the spray they gave us and would routinely "condition" the material.

We finally got an Ikea couch to replace the *** couch in the RV. I have been looking for seat covers that would fit the booth seats, with no luck. Knowing that Coachman won't cover their shoddy furniture, I guess I'm going to have to either have them redone professionally, or make new covers.

I have spoken to other Coachman RV owners and they also have had the same situation. I will never buy another Coachman RV again.

We have a 2014 Coachmen Mirada 35DL with less than 10,000 miles and the only owners. We are having the same problem with the sofa peeling and cracks on the seat cushions.

It is so bad I have to keep it covered. I am constantly sweeping up the pieces. When you purchase your Coachmen the Dealer can care less they made their sale. I purchase my Coachmen in Florida.

If anyone hears of a class action suit on this we would love or join. nellisflyer@att.net

We also have the same problem with our 2015 Coachmen Mirada upholstery. We just bought it used about a month ago.

Camping World is recovering the captain chairs because they were so badly cracked and peeled that they couldn't sell it without fixing them. We used the coach for a four day trip as soon as we bought it. During the first trip the couch and dinette also started to deteriorate. We returned it to Camping World as soon as we returned (Dec 8th) and they will not replace those as they were "ok" when we took it.

Here we are, Dec 29th and we haven't gotten it back yet. That is a whole nother problem but it is Camping World, not with the upholstery.

After reading all the other comments I'm assuming Coachmen isn't going to do anything either.

I also have peeling furniture and coachman will do nothing about it since I'm not original owner. I bought it a year ago and apparently the prev owner never used it because the seating started peeling immediately.

Very disappointed with lack of support.

Coachman Miranda 35LS 2014. I've been looking to see if there's a class action since some furniture dealers have been sued for similar problems and had to replace

I have the exact problem with my 2013 Coachmen Encounter. I have never seen material delaminate like this.

Chunks of material are everywhere in the coach. The dinette and the sofa are destroyed.

The captains chair are not far behind.Has anyone taken this company to small claims court?

Has there been any settlements?

Never again will I buy a Coachmen product.

I also am having the same problem with my 2013 Mirada. He have decided to try an sell our RV for other reasons unrelated to the RV, so I am having to get all the cushions and end caps reupholstered.

Not happy at all about this. Spoke with Williamsburg Furniture and they offered to sell me replacements covers but I don't trust their quality at this point, not to mention it would take almost a month to get them.

This is our 3rd RV and have never had this problem. Forest River should take some responsibility in this if you ask me.

I botched since may of this year (2016) I just received today a roll of fabric and new seat covers for everything. Looks good not cheap but is still williamsburg.

Now have to get quote for the couch.

They said they will pay and that is what the roll is for. If my guy says it's crappie I'm not using it

We have a 2014 Mirada and the Captain Seats, Sofa, and bench seats in the kitchen are ALL flaking. Of course I sent a note to Forest River where they claim a reply in 48 hours.

Have heard nothing. It is not from wear and tear causing this as it flakes off on the back side of cushions where it is not exposed or even touched. I have an expensive 34 ft 2014 motorhome that I need to replace the all the furniture. Not Happy.

At the very least I expect to replace these at a cost price.

If you buy from Coachman beware of their fake leather furniture. It may very well look awful in a year or two.

We have a 2013 Coachmen Mirada 29degrees with the same upholstery problem, delamination. Working with Coachmen for a couple weeks now trying to get it corrected.

Did you ever get yours fixed. Anyone else have this problem??

The more the merrier when fighting with manufacturers to get something fixed.

The company that actually does the seat upholstery work for Coachmen told me they no longer carry this upholstery. The reason given: this very problem, delamination or separation of the layers.

This should be fixed for all of us at "NO CHARGE".

We are having the identical problem in our 2011 Forest River Georgetown. The problem is material related has nothing to do with the usage.

Just getting started on this will keep you posted.

Even Williamsburg Furniture said they now are aware of the magnitude of this problem. I WANT MINE REPLACED NOTHING LESS.

It's an upholstery manufacturers problem. They turned out bad material.

Haven't found out the actual upholstery source yet, but I'm working on it.

It's not Williamsburg Furnitures problem, as far as I can tell they make the sear covers and install them for coachman with somebody's upholstery.

We should get as many people involved as we can with this problem. Maybe Coachmen will pay attention to large numbers of complaints as compared to each individual complaint.

We were told by a service person at Camping World that it was a bad upholstery lot from China.
