Driver's Seat Mods for Small Guys

I am 5'8" and the Driver's seat on our '21 VTDP 3412 is too deep for my comfort. Also, it is tilted up in the front a bit too much. My legs are just too short for the set up.

I've used a pillow and/or extra lumbar support behind me with some success, but nothing that I like yet.

Our unit has the Villa furniture.

Any suggestions? And, please, no "sit on a phone book" jokes!"

They do not have phone books anymore......

Doesn't the seat tilt forward? I do not have an issue with mine. I am 5'8"

Are your pedals adjustable?

Yes and yes, but it is still too deep. The backs of my knees barely make the end of the seat. If I lower it, it tilts back way too much.

And, incidentally, we still get a small phone book delivered out here every other year or so. Hard to believe, as it just goes straight to the trash.
