TMI Industries dominates seat cover manufacturing!
Having accumulated all original Bus seat cover vinyls (same seat cover vinyls as in other VWs) and original seat cover patterns, this company built up a virtual monopoly as a manufacturer of VW Bus and other VW seat covers.
Most suppliers to the public rely on this manufacturer for VW Bus seat covers. It should be noted that these are original accurate seat cover replacements, not slip overs, and they require that the seats be removed from your VW Bus to work on them and install the new seat covers.
Instructions:We have a very well illustrated seat cover restoration booklet. These seat cover replacement instructions cover everything, from removal of the seats, to re-padding the seats if necessary and attaching the new seat covers and putting the seats back into the vehicle. Seat cover headrest work is also covered. The seat cover instruction booklet is listed on every page (every seat cover selection per the links on this page.)
Types (Materials) of seat cover vinyls in VW Bus seats
VW Bus seat covers are available in all original fabric configurations. The most popular original and replacement VW Bus seat covers are made with original basket weave vinyl and matching color trim. Basket weave was adopted by Volkswagen for its durability. This is the most durable of all VW Bus seat cover vinyls. And because it is in greater demand than other VW Bus seat cover vinyl the production volume is high, making the fabric the least expensive of the VW Bus seat covers. Basketweave VW Bus seat covers are often available for quicker delivery than other VW Bus seat covers, especially custom made seat covers.
Also popular, but more costly are VW Bus seat covers with vinyl trim and cloth inserts. The seat cover cloth inserts can be tweed cloth or velour and VW Bus seat covers with rich tweed cloth inserts are quite popular. We offer clear color choices which will enable you to focus on the design of these fancier VW Bus seat covers. Bear in mind that TMI, enjoying a near monopoly on authentic original pattern VW Bus seat cover manufacture, does make us wait for fulfillment of custom VW Bus seat covers.
It is impossible to display the full range of fabric and color choices for replacement VW Bus seat covers that TMI manufactures ! If the page for your particular seat cover search is not perfectly clear then please send us an email and we will provide you with a quote for the configuration of VW Bus seat covers that you specify. We can also send actual seat cover fabric swatch samples if you tell us what fabrics and colors you are considering for your replacement VW Bus seat covers. There is a link to our support mailbox on the bottom of each seat cover page. We endeavor to answer emailed questions, including requests for VW Bus seat cover swatches and custom seat cover quotes, in a timely fashioon.
There are thousands of combinations of VW Bus seat covers. Either we, or TMI stock the most popular seat cover configurations but demand may diminish quick availability of the seat covers you are after. TMI makes most of its seat covers to fill orders and the sheer number of combinations of Bus seat covers is so immense that no supplier can predict an exact delivery date for customer replacement seat covers. We are specifying an average of 8 weeks but often can more quickly deliver on the seat cover order (especially VW Bus basket weave seat covers) but also are subject to the manufacturing decisions (which seats come first !) of TMI. So...we can promise thorough and courteous service on your VW Bus seat cover needs, but cannot do better in providing a ship date for many orders.
Other Bus Seat Cover Items:
There are accessories related to the installation of upgrading of your VW Bus or Vanagon seats. Hardware items, cushions for "re-padding" your seat covers, seat cover installation instructions, etc. are available either on the seat cover page you select or in the main menus.
