May check the salvage yard over the winter for some nice Lexus/Mercedes seats…

The soft leather seats like in my F150 King Ranch may be worth a look. Not air seats, obviously, but 6 way adjustable, seat and back messaging, air conditioning, heat and a little oversized. Very comfortable over the long haul.

I took my flex steel apart, 100$ to repad the seat bottom at an upholstery shop. I had the exact problem you do. I can drive , and have several times, 1800 miles in a Toyota seat and in 200 my butt was killing me in the coach. I still stop every 200 to stretch , eat etc. But I am not praying for relief when I do. They overpadded it about an inch higher than it was new, with high density foam. I picked a density I couldn't get my knee to bottom out on concrete with a 3 inch thick piece. Spend a little time at the shop sitting on different types until you find what works for you. Had my sofa redone in high density too. Doesn't sag at all sitting or laying on it. It was the medium high density.

I've been an upholster for 32 years and I've installed a lot of seats and made a lot of adjustments to people's seats, you might want to start with a 6 way Power motor seat, these rv's are pretty simple on how they're mounted to the pedistol you can go to the salvage yard and pickup a power seat from a GM car and don't forget the switch you want to look for one that has the switch mounted to the seat or the frame of the seat this way the harness is all there and you won't have to do any wiring just plug and play...I put one in my last RV and I'm going to put one in the one I just bought, I have a bad back and I'm talking from experience the 6 way power seat will help greatly...

I agree you have to have a comfortable seat, plus you can't sit on a 2" thick billfold all day. Other than that I have found only one thing that really works for me. I stop every couple of hours for a stretch. I might only be out of the seat for 3 or 4 minutes but I get out and walk around checking things over. If I do that I can be on the road for 7 or 8 hours with no issues.
I've adopted the GOAL associated with back-in parking. I get out and look over my rig every 2-3 hours to get my old joints moving and clear my head of boredom.
