Bill, if you like the fit of the seats you now have; take them out and send them to an upholsterer. They can do them far less than buying new or probably even used. Good luck and let us know how you make out.

Bill,

Mike is right check out your local upholsterers first. On buying factory keep in mind that most factory seating is probably going to be FlexSteel or one of the other major suppliers so why pay the factory markup for a replacement FlexSteel seat instead of buying at the discount shop with the best price.

Regards,

Bill,
Since you are in Sacramento try Dr George RV at www.drgeorgerv.com. They have used seats that may be just what you're looking for.

Bill, do the right thing, have them covered with sheepskin. It's the best covering for those long dayz in the saddle. we love ours
