Verona cab Seats upgrade - Pulled the trigger

We are now over 13,000 miles since January on our Verona and love it! Support provided on the few issues we have had, has been phenomenal. With that in mind, we are always looking to make our travel experience even better. I noticed there has been a change in the front seat design for 2022. That, along with my wife not being completely satisfied with our current seat position, prompted me to make enquiries around potential seat upgrades.

After reaching out to Renegade, the seat recommended is a "Bostrom Wide Ride 2 Ultra Leather Serta Memory foam" . This is not an RV seat, but a long-haul truck seat. As further confirmation, I reached out to friend of mine who sells HD trucks. The feedback further confirmed this is a great seat for the M2 106 chassis. With that, I ordered two seats through Rainey's Truck Parts, along with adapter plates for both required for this chassis. (20-week lead time). Once received, and installed, I will update this post. Even though the cow has left the barn, I have two questions.

1. Has anyone had firsthand experience with the Bostrom seats?
2. Has anyone taken delivery of a 2022 Verona, that can provide feedback on the new 2022 seat verses 2021. (Just curious)

Thanks in advance,
Wayne

I have nothing to contribute, but thank you for being a guinea pig and sharing your experience. Looking forward to hear how you like the new seats.

I replaced my Bostrom seats with National Admiral CT two-tone gray genuine leather seats with long arm rests, heat & cooling, back cycler, ... These seats fit onto the standard low-profile seat mounts that were originally supplied by Freightliner (National OEM). In my case, I had to remove the Bostrom bases and adapter plates and replace them with the original Freightliner/National bases. I chose to go with the Admiral CT seats for numerous reasons, one of which is that they have left and right swivel adapters with both levers on the inside. I also wanted genuine leather and not black. The Bostrom swivels wobbled too much and were difficult to swivel while in the coach due to the position of the control lever. I also added bellows to cover the ugly.

Keep in mind that in an M2, you need to have low-profile bases. Folks that have the OEM Freightliner bases and are looking to upgrade to a better seat, sticking with National seats can save you some dineros.

National & Bostrom are owned by the same company Commercial Vehicle Group (CVG)

We purchased a Verona VBH 40 in August and will be looking at upgrading the seats next year. The factory seats are adequate but not as good as some we had seen in older models and other RVs.

The driver's seat has several noises when used either with the air pumped up deflated. The seat bottom doesn't support all that well, and while heated, both front seats are manually operated.

We figured the seats were affected by the supply shortages.

Thank you for the response. Was thinking 2022 seats might be better but guess that answers that. You mention noises the seats make. On our 2021, I silicone all moving parts on the seats prior to every trip. It seems to lessen the noise they make when flexing up and down.
For what it worth.

Great Thread! I have not been happy with the factory buckets in our 2021 Verona 36VSB. Poor comfort, rattle noises, hard to use controls and poor-quality fabric. Thank you for posting and hope to see the follow-ups once installed.
