Truck Seats--anyone try them?

The other day we were killing time at a truck service center and became intrigued by high end truck seats that seem to deliver a lot more for the money than the captain's chairs sold for RV use. For example, an absolute, top-of-the-line seat, National's Admiral CT can be purchased in real leather for ~$1800 (plus freight) and it includes a "cooling system", a huge array of adjustments and a shock absorbing suspension. It even has a swivel so it could be turned around just like most other Class A seats. Here's a link to a place that sells them: 40149/40179 Admiral CT Commercial Truck Seat

Has anyone used a seat like this in a Class A? The only thing I can see that we would lose would be the power footrest on the passenger's seat. compared to the price for new Villa seats in Ultraleather these seem like a bargain. Am I missing something?

I just discovered there is a recent thread on this subject here: Air Ride Seats

It makes more sense to post any replies there.

We have the De Leon LX Captain's chairs. The arm rests on the driver's seat are too high. I have to use a 2" cushion to sit on to be able to use the arm rests, and I'm a tall guy. The passenger's seat with the power foot rest - the seat pan is almost 2' deep, so my wife has to use a thick pillow behind her. I've replaced the switch for the power foot rest 3 times. The rest of the electronics in the seat (heater and vibrator) have burned out. Nice price. Look nice. Fairly comfortable, but not top end comfortable. Get what you pay for.
