I bought mine here. I had to order them to get the color I wanted anyway, so they shipped direct from the factory.
Suburban had the best price.

In my last bus the seats were old & worn, instead of replacing them, I got a seat cover that had contoured back & seat cushions incorporated in them for lumbar support. I found them online, and at about $65 each they were a lot cheaper than replacement seats. I had them 4 or 5 months & took some long trips with them. Just an idea...

I had an issue with the company, not the seats.

I was in the area of their factory so I called them.
Can I buy from you? ....NO
Do you have a showroom so I can look at your seats? ... NO
Can you tell me who carries your seats so I can look at them? ...NO
Do you do factory tours? .. NO

Will I buy their seats? ......NO

I did not! I did now Bostrom and National merged but kept their own respective factories.

I used to build software that did corporate income tax.
You would be amazed at who owns who!

There is only one trailer hitch company.

A french company called Vivendi owns ALL the water including Culligan, US Filter, and the Cali aqueducts. Also, 95% of all the bottle water companies.
I could go on so it doesn't surprise me.

Thanks for the advice guys. I might look into getting the seats rebuilt. I'm not the handiest when it comes to making stuff fit if it doesn't just bolt in.I do like the idea of a narrower seat though. My wife and I are small people, and smaller seats would work well.

getting seats rebuilt can run into big money,if you use leather or ultraleather its going to be more than new seats.
But,truck seats are not for everyone..

I'm guessing a truck seat would be ergonomically better for long drives than the plush seats motorhomes typically have. There are a few nice seats on ebay that came from a Newmar. I wonder if those would bolt right in.

The ergonomics look good on them, but I don't think they are an air chair.
