It must be cool to be Abby at Flightline Interiors. You get to design upholstery for RV builders and then listen to them tell you how great you are. It's no fluke. She's great and she's another example of why I didn't bother checking around when it came to upholstering the very cool Oregon Aero seat foam. Enough RVers I respect said nothing but great things about Abby. That was -- and is -- good enough for me.
As I understand it, Abby used to design interiors for yachts, and when she left the company, she had a non-compete clause. So she did some work for an RV airplane builder or two and it caught on and she started her own business.
I picked out the fabric to be used and Abby came up with several designs. The interior of the RV is a Rustoleum hammered finished grey. There's a lot of grey. So I wanted the seats to introduce maroon into the scheme.
Making them even better will be the solid maroon Hooker Harness 5-point seat belts (Yeah, I'm not really scrimping in these particular areas) with the black trim.
Lots of cool things are showing up these days. If I could just get someone to take my money for a new engine now, we'll be in great shape.
