Best Theater Seat Vendor?

From San Diego, we own a 2020 Newmar Ventana with swivel recliners. We'd like to replace the recliners with power theater seats. We are interested in comfort, durability, color matching and installation. Our local Newmar dealer has struggled to make any head-way with a replacement, its rapidly approaching 14 months without any real tangible information. We understand the complexity vendors are experiencing with material supplies, staffing etc..., however the pipeline of theater seat supply seems to be inching along - is that correct? One post suggested a 17 week wait, to us that's okay, at least they had some certainty. So our questions are:
1) Who builds the absolute best (comfort, durability) power theater seat?
2) Which company has the best reputation for installation/customer service?

Is there something we aren't asking about that we should know?

Respectfully, we are interested in any guidance from this community.

We bought direct from Lambright in Indiana. They were custom built and we had them install at their factory.

Highly recommended.

X3 on Lambight. Ordered in January at the Super Show and installed in May in our Kountry Star. We like it so much we ordered a Dutch Star with no couch and we are removing the Lambright from the Kountry Star and installing in the new Dutch Star.

The main thing we like about the Lambright is the ability to lift the center section to make a couch that seats 3 or allows for stretching out for a nap.

X4 on Lambright. Went right to their factory, they have a decent showroom so you can select the style and features you want, and they will build and install to your order. Very satisfied.

While I do not have a Newmar I can't say enough good things about Lambright. We are in Red Bay with our Tiffin. There is a business here that installs aftermarket furniture in coaches. We had our sleeper sofa removed and had the most wonderful Lambright theater seating installed. We were concerned that it would stick out too far in the floor when the slides are closed but our fears were unfounded. We have plenty of walking space and are more than thrilled.
Be aware though there are several models to choose from. Ours is the 77 inch Signature Theater Seating model. They had placed an order with Lambright back in February for many different models and we were lucky enough to be here when they were delivered.

I bought Villa to match the rest of the furniture and I am very disappointed, they are very uncomfortable. The foam has to be the cheapest crap on the planet.

In our previous coach we removed the sofa and installed a Lambright theater seat. The wife likes it better than the Villa we have in our Dutch Star. On the Lambright the center arm rest raises up so you retain the sofa seating if you need it.

If you go to the Tampa RV Show there will be a couple of vendors that rep Lambright or contact them direct.

From what I am reading Lambright is exceptional and some of the best RV furniture you can get for your RV. I have never used them so I am not able to comment on first hand use. I do use Lazy-Boy and can say that I have been very happy with them. They are not a RV furniture specialty company so you have to do your research to get the right size and function that you want. They do have wall-away type furniture that requires about 3 inches from the wall. So my caution would be to ensure that it is a wall-away type furniture before you purchase. If your furniture (any furniture) sticks out over the slide I just put hard floor sliders on the two front protectors of the furniture and this works great and will not damage your floor.

I neglected to say in my previous posting that in our 07 Bus we had a remodel done and put in 2 LazyBoy Wall Away Pinnacle Recliners. We loved those chairs and had them bolted to the floor when we had them installed. We just "happened" to be in the right place at the right time for our theater seating. This is something that rarely, if ever, has happened to us. We are told that there is an 18 week waiting time for one to be built. We just could not let it go!

Thank you all

Thank you for those of you responded. We reached out to Brad & Hall and it seems we have a good solution. Again, THANK YOU…
