Leather seats ?

Just got back from about 600 mi round trip driving 2300F. I don't like the cloth seats. Armrest / seat is like sandpaper on my right arm and the back of my legs ... Has anybody replaced their seats w leather ones or added GOOD leather or leatherette seat covers ? Was hoping Ford could supply me with good leather covers but seems they don't offer them.

Find a local auto upholstery shop and have them 'modify" your current seats with leather in the areas where you want it.

I'm curious about this as well, our 2017 2300 doesn't have leather but I think it would be nice to have and easier to clean.. I know it's an option through forest river and one of the other new sunseekers we were looking at had it on it and it appeared to be the same seat with just a new cover but I'm a little scared to ask the dealer the cost to order just the cover but I can't find them anywhere online.

We have katzkin leather in our jeep and it was 1200.00 installed but that was for all the seats and to add heated seats to the front also so maybe I'll bite the bullet and ask... I'm also looking for a full carpet kit for the cab area of the ford E series but I'm having just as much trouble finding it as well!

Keep us posted if you find some!

We purchased flexsteel leather captain seats. These seats are the most comfortable seats for a rv. The leather seats from Forest River are the same as the cloth ones and not very comfortable for longer trips. Here's the link Flexsteel Heaton Model 535 Captains Chair

Tomdavis, I pulled a big thick knee high winter sock over my armrest to eliminate the sandpaper on the arm problem, until I get around to replacing them. Didn't know anyone else had felt they were rough until I read your comments.

Leather Seats

My wife and I looked at a Jayco Greyhawk the other day and the leather seats were very large, nicely trimmed and comfortable. However it was hard to maneuver around the console to get into the seats from the coach.

Lexstone have you ever seen the Winnebago slim center console? I'm a pretty big ol' boy and have looked into replacing the standard center console with one of these. You don't get as much storage however.

Thanks, no, haven't seen one. Are they made for the Chevy 4500 and do you have a link perhaps?
