Replace driver/passenger seats

I have a 2009 class C 29 foot. The driver and passenger seats are ok but I am planning some long distance driving from Alaska to the Lower 48 and am considering replacing them for more comfort. Anyone else done this? Suggestions on what to get and where. Thank you.

There are a Go-Zillion after market seat companies out there that specialize in what you are looking to accomplish.

Consider as well getting your current seats re-upholstered. That would be the least expensive road to travel.

I believe John Canfield did that on his Horizon a couple of years back. You can search his posts to check it out but his is a much larger unit.

Good Luck...

We are pondering the same thing. Flexsteel makes a wide variety of captain's chairs/bucket seats for RV's. John Canfield (referred to in a previous post) replaced his chairs with Flexsteel from Bradd & Hall in Elkhart, IN. We are investigating that but the Flexsteel stuff is expensive....about $1,100 - $1,200 per chair with ultra leather (cloth fabric is less costly).

Some folks have used Discount RV Furniture located in California. I've read both good and not-so-good reviews on them. Finally, recovering is an option. We got one estimate to have our's recovered with ultra leather for about $1,100 for both chairs. However, we are not thrilled with the comfort of our's and not sure it will get better with new covering.

When we had our Class "C" we did the samething, replaced the cloth front seats with very nice power leather seats, FROM THE WRECKING YARD!!!

Went to the local yards, Pick You Part and Ecology, and walked throught the rows of vans and SUV, and, bingo, there they were, beautiful leather tan power seats, with hardly any wear, the rear of the van was an other story!! Had to hook up 12v to them but that was pretty simple.

Cost....... $50.00 a seat.

Just an idea.
