Seat covers

I have a Class A pusher with Flex Steel captain chairs. I am looking for seat covers and I am looking for suggestions on where I should start looking.

Thanks in advance.

I bought a set of sheepskin covers for our Flexsteel seats for Blondies. Very satisfied. I much prefer the sheepskin over the OEM Leather.

Are those sheepskin covers cool in the summer? I see you're in BC, so have you ever gotten down into real hot areas like the deep south, TX, LA, MS, Al, Fl etc?

One of the reasons I went with sheepskin was because the leather was so uncomfortable especially in the summer and the leather was starting to show it's age. Recovering or replacing was a fairly big investment so I thought for the cost I'd give these a try.
I called Blondie about her covers. She asked for measurements so I took photos of both seats, edited the photos with measurements she asked for and emailed them. She sent them pre paid to an RV park we were headed to so I called the park to hold them for me.
The product arrived on time and fit like a glove. If I recall, the price all in was around $500 for both seats. Pretty reasonable compared to the alternatives.
Turns out I am happy with my covers and would not hesitate to go that route again. The sheepskin is way nicer in the summer.
Hope this helps in your decision. Like I said, it's not a large investment if you compare to recovering or replacing these seats so for me anyway, it was worth trying.

Our used Phaeton had them and my wife said "they have got to go, too hot and don't look good" . Then she sat in them on the way home from the dealership and we never took them out. They were very comfortable and yes we used them in June and July in Tennessee and Alabama.

I didn't go the standard seat cover route. I wanted something comfortable & nice looking. I went with 2 SureFit recliner covers from QVC. Washable, comfy & there are 3 pockets on each arm side. For our coach they are a perfect fit except for the arm rest cover part (it's a tad skewed because it's not an actual recliner). Bought a couple sets, in different colors for different seasons (warm vs cold) & couldn't be happier.

We also went the route similar to Dennis but we were trying to protect our new seats with the seat covers. Blondies sheepskin covers fit like a glove and are very comfortable. We get compliments all the time when others see them.

We are in northern IL but travel south to Florida every chance our vacation time allots us. Since we've always had them on when we started RVing on these longer trips south I can't compare to traveling on just the leather flex-steel seats. Has my back ever been a little sweaty from traveling, yes...but I think it's more because I don't regulate temperature properly while driving. Meaning I wasn't running the generator cooling the whole coach but rather was relying on the dash a/c to do it all and it wasn't keeping up properly. So I blame that on my inexperience as we are only 8 months into RVing.

The DW and myself love the sheepskin! They are comfortable in the cool weather and comfortable in the warm weather. They were in the $500 range so some might think that is on the high side when compared to other seat covers but I would recommend them as they are quality and a joy to sit on every time we jump in to go on a trip. Good luck with your decision......

I'll try and attach a picture (without the armrest covers installed)
