I drove transit for a while after retiring from Boeing. The coaches our agency had were all Gilligs and had a fabric-covered Recaro seat. It was mounted on a pneumatic column with shock-absorber valves. had height, recline, seat-cushion rake and fore-aft adjustments.

Combined with a steering column with two universal joints and telescopic adjustments, any size person could get comfortable. I could drive an 8-hour shift with only a couple of stretches. With the lousy seats in the MH, I can only manage 2 hours at a time, with at least a 30-minute walk-about.

Because of the absence of height adjustment on the seat and very limited adjustability of the steering column, it's impossible for DW to drive the rig.

Thanks all for your help, it's great to be able to find people that I can ask!

Still on the lookout. I'm going to try to find someplace that has a few different models to test for comfort. Not having luck at the moment though. Heading by camping world this weekend, so maybe they'll have a couple on display.

I just found this video on how you can restore to firmness of your foam in your captains chairs. I may give this a try with my little steamer I have just to see what happens.
I figure all the foam is compressed and dryed in that compressed state.
Seems it only needs a little moisture to rejuvenate it.
What do you think?
