What Are You Sitting On?

After a couple of hours towing, my hind quarters start to hurt. Then the squirming starts. Truck seat does not have adjustable lumbar. Went to Wally World and some of the memory foam cushions might work. Looking for ideas. What are you folks sitting on?

my Chev 2500 HD WT is the base model, so the seats ain't what you'd find in a class C. Quite the opposite. I experienced about the same thing you did in half as much time. So, I bought a memory foam cushion. It does help, but not the solution I really need. Maybe I should have got the combination seat cushion/lumbar support, BUT, the mem foam is hot and sweaty in summer, hard, cold and inflexible in the winter. It is a slight improvement, but certainly not the right answer for me.

I will be shopping for a new solution for the spring RV season. My brother swears by the gel cushion/lumbar support unit he has in his truck. He has back and knee problems and says it's comfortable for many hours. So I will be looking for a similar (identical?) gel cushion.

I just use the factory truck seats. For my bike, I have an air filled cushion that works well. I can make about 750 miles before my butt needs a break longer than just a fuel stop on the bike. In the truck, I'm good for 1,000 or more. But once I hit 1,000 miles, I'm tired and ready for bed.

I can remember those days. Now I'm thankful when I can go 700 yards before the bladder calls.

I wore out two of them during my years as a truck driver, the physical therapist recommend one after a back injury.

The last several years my assigned ride had a seat that I could sit in with out back pain but I still carried it with me just in case I had to do a truck swap.

Available at Amazon as well as pharmacies that carry hard goods.

Might be exactly what I need. Thanks!

Find a well-recommended auto upholstery shop in your area and pay them a visit. Then can make your seat fit you perfectly! Haven't had a perfect factory seat since the luxury option in my 2004, and have had mine tailored to me (6'-5", 285#) and to give me proper support and long-drive comfort as a have two bulging discs in my lower back. Also had the door armrest customized on my RAM because factory is too low for me, and resting on the window sill was causing neck and shoulder issues on long drives. Money well spent so that vacation doesn't start and end with aches and pains!
