Replacing front seats in Class A.

Quick question. The front seats in my 3 year old Jayco Precept are what we call 'pleather'. They are hot in the summer and not the most comfortable seats to sit in. I expect like most 'pleather' seats they will start splitting and falling apart in the not to distant future. Is there a recommended place or site to purchase comfortable real leather seats to replace these?
Thanks in advance for any input, and happy camping.

Another option is to have the seats recovered at a local upholstery shop. If you are happy with the seat other than the fake leather, it would be cheaper.

I had a 2016 jayco alante in which the seats were flaking badly. My understanding is that jayco order low quality materials to keep prices down. I wanted to sell the rv, so I wanted to fix the seats.

I first tried the original maker from the tag under the seat. After multiple communications they never came up with replacement covers.

I contacted some local shops to see about recovering them. The cost was somewhat high but the wait times were way to long.

I looked at used ones on eBay and elsewhere. Most were pretty worn. Plus I would have to travel to see them.

Then I went online to look. Everybody had a long wait too. Then I found RecPro had a pair of brown seats in stock. I ordered them. They were promptly shipped. I paid $2075 total for the pair. They were very nice and comfortable, although we only took one short weekend trip with them. And two test drives with interested parties.

They were an exact match underneath, removed the new sides and attached the existing power seat slides and bolted them to the existing pedestals. Very easy.

Although they are not real leather, they are the “Ultrafabrics Brisa Original“ material. It seemed pretty nice to me.

FYI. I was quoted 450.00 per chair for labor in California.

I had my seats recovered at a local shop with a upgraded vinyl/pleather, and they have held up well and look good. They were 6 way electric seats with a passenger recliner and I had heating elements added. The cost was about $1350.00.

After I had dropped them off I found out that I could have picked up a pair of air ride truckers power seats in the $1,500.00 to $ 1,800.00 range. They go higher, but these were good basic quality seats and the air ride would have been worth the extra money to me. They were also recommended from a friend who owns a trucking company and who used them in his fleet.

You may want to check out the truckers seats before you commit. My recovered seats are great and I don't regret recovering them, but would have at least looked at the air rides.
