Pilot and Co Pilot Seats
#1
Our current seats have only lap seat belts.  

We are considering replacing both chairs that have integrated shoulder/lap belts, and am looking for suggestions on where to purchase new chairs.  How difficult are the seats to replace (can I do this myself?).  Current drivers seat is an air ride, electric position seat and the co-pilot seat is manual position, recliner, non-air ride seat.   Also where is the best location to purchase new seats.  If needed we would like suggestions where we could have the seats installed if I can't replace them myself?  We will be at Newell at the end of October but the replacement cost from the factory is prohibitive.  So we are looking for other options.

The seats are attached to the base rails by 4 bolts. Access isn't great but they are not that hard to get off. They are heavy and awkward to move, especially for one person, unless you are young and spry (or at least spry).

like michael said, heavy but not difficult to remove. you might have to fab some adapter plate or brackets for new seats....and maybe not.

seats are available at many places. look online. for air seats they are for trucks. and you could get a similar one without air. or look at rv seats online.

For what it's worth, My seat belts with shoulder restraints are not part of the seat except the snap latch.  The belt is attached to the wall as is the safety catch.  Your current seats should have the snap buckle already on it.

Correct me if i am mistaken, please.

Drivers lap belt is anchored to the floor and the co-pilot seat is anchored to the chair frame, i think, because it swivels to face the living area.  Newell says they can add the shoulder/lap belts to our current seats for a reasonable price, but the wife would like to have new seats.  So new seats will most likely be in our future.

As to young and spry, it's are more like old and feeble.
