Captain Chair - Killing my right leg

I have a 2019 Allegro Bus 45MP.

I love it.. other than one thing.. the captains chair is killing me, about 2 hours into a drive and it's digging into my right hip.. Is anyone else having this issue, from my understanding it's a Villa Captain chair they have several other options as well.

Has anyone swapped the captain chairs for other ones, do they fit out the door or do I have to take out the drivers window?

I have an Allegro Red. I don't know who made the chair but it kills me too. I figured it was the driving position with no way to stretch out my leg. In a car my leg is extended but so far I haven't found a good position in my RV. It helps to use cruise control but that isn't always possible. I am still looking for the right position for the chair and have acquired a seat cushion to try out.

On our '17 Phaeton the furniture is Flexsteel. I was having the same issues with the comfort, or lack of it, in regards to the captain's chairs. The biggest issue was when I was driving but we will turn around the co-pilot's seat when parked. If I sit in it for long it is also uncomfortable.

My answer was to have the seat bolstered up. Some cushioning was added to the seat bottom for more support. I haven't had any real long days since I had this done but so far it seems to have helped quite a bit.

I want an Air Ride seat, but 5pthe wife says they are too ugly. Sure would ride better than those pretty seats.

There should be a tag somewhere on the bottom of the seat.

Naaahhh...... Perhaps it's just too much money in your wallet causing it to compress the sciatic nerve, resulting in leg and hip pain.

Seriously though, even though I don't have the same coach, I also have the same problem. I always attributed it to not having enough room to fully extend my leg occasionally while driving just as TiffinUser mentioned. I don't have a "real" fix but have learned that I can minimize it by adjusting my driving times to allow myself a couple of minutes to walk around a little every 90 minutes or so. (Besides, at my advanced age, I have to stop about that often to pee anyway, so it's a win-win situation!!)
