Ford E-450 leather seat covers?

I have a 2011 3100SS and I am wondering if anyone has been through this before - any advice or experience on the most cost effective way to convert the factory Ford E-450 front driver/passenger seats to leather? Can leather replacement seat covers be purchased through an RV dealer/Forest River? (If so, are these real leather or ultra-leather?) Is a Ford dealer the only other option? What is the avergae price paid for the seat covers? Thank you!

You might be able to order them from the parts dept. I'm not sure of cost...but we take the Ford stock seat and have it recovered in ultra leather so it matches the rest of the furniture. We send them the seats, but I doubt it is sewn on.

Thanks for the responses, guys... Helpful to know all the options we have.

niedobry1 - They do look like they have good products. But I'm slightly nervous of removal and re-rigging the factory pyrotechnics (!) to an aftermarket seat that they weren't designed for? So that is why I thought it would be simpler to keep the Ford seats and try to locate the replacement seat covers instead. Which seats did you buy from them? Did you go through the process of removing and installing the aftermarket seats? Did you keep the original base?

You might try looking up a place locally that does truck/van conversions. Sometimes they are asked to convert existing vehicles and keep the leather interior items to be replaced with their custom interiors.
We've had several F350s at work that we have replaced the worn and dirty cloth with brand new, easy to clean leather this way.
