Naugahyde from Sailrite?

Anybody ever use Sailrite to order their upholstery?

http://www.sailrite.com/

I'm looking at their Universal Marine Grade naugahyde to do a bedliner and tonneau cover. It's sold as "boat cushion and upholstery" use and is UV treated. I'm a little concerned about it because the price seems so reasonable, $9.95 a yard. I did send for a sample and it looks decent to me (woven "Jersey Knit" backing not the felt type) and Beauty Gard finish (whatever that means). Also, the color matches up pretty well with the Ultraleather on the seats and interior.

Any experience with this product or with Sailrite?

Dewey

Vinyl is sold under (literally) dozens of brand names, one of which is Naugahyde. Vinyl is quite economical and has its place in many applications.
The 'faux leather' products (Ultraleather, Izit, Columbia, etc.) are mostly 100% polyurethane with a knit backing. These have a much softer feel, are more resistant to UV fading, and are more durable to abrasive wear. (...also they generally have a nice "stretch" quality to them.)
The vinyls generally sell in the $10 (+or -) and the polyurethane's can sell for 4 to 7 times that much.
As usual, with some exceptions, you get what you pay for.

Thanks for the words of advice Tudor.

All the stuff inside my cab is already Ultraleather - so I have an idea of how great that stuff is. But it was also done by a pro - so there was no worry about blowing the entire job at $70 a yard. I want to tackle this bed liner myself but my skills and confidence level tell me to error on the side of the less expensive material - even if I have to redo it in a couple of years. At least I'll have the experience of my first attempt under my belt - and might be willing to spring for the top of the line material at that point.

Tudor pretty much answered it all. As he said, the higher end materials have a better stretch to them, and are MUCH nicer to work with. If you are building a simple Bed liner then you shouldnt have a problem. I would suggest a tonneau grade vinyl for the bed cover though.
