While on our "Bus Rally Trifecta" trip Becky saw an RV used parts house, Colaws near Carthage, MO. She mentioned that we need to go there and look for some captains chairs. I silently smiled to myself thinking "Sure no problem". Due to the fact that the air ride for me and the co-pilot for her did not match our decor, they just had to go! For some reason red and blue does not go with earth tones of tan and honey oak. :shock:

After we arrived in Carthage for Christy and Larry Hicks rally Bob Gilbert said let's go to Colaws. I was amazed at how much stuff they had, the back forty had at least 400 motor-homes either burned or crashed. What an weird feeling!

I picked up a spare water hose, (Don't buy them from WM, they are crappy China junk) and water inlet plug. I ended up picking a good looking set of seats, sent Becky some pics from my phone for her approval, you know the rule huh! We ended up going back on Saturday morning to take another look and decide what to get.

This is what we ended up with. Two Flexsteel six way power with lumbar, ultraleather captain chairs! 8-) Of course I had to install hers and get it wired up to test it out, she had one happy fanny on the ride home! I will install mine after I get a base from my buddy Richard Bishop.

Got to admit that there is nothing prettier than RED WHITE AND BLUE...but that said...You beautiful new tan leather seats LOOK GREAT!! I don't think you guys were even settled when you had to run to Colaws....bus fever abounds! hahaha I kept Tony in check as all he bought was one of the roof vent covers.

Van, We got them both for $800, they were asking $1,000. New they are over $1500 each. The only way we could afford them was used. 8-)

The seat belts we had work. We already had the seat base for Becky's, which they were attached to. I just mounted the electrical base on top of that, then the seat. Very cool! 8-)

I might have to modify mine, we'll see when I get the base.

Leg room is always been a problem for Cheryl and I, these big comfy seats are sure nice but take up a lot of room :cry: I have ours mounted as far back as possible, with out having it rubbing the wheel housing, bet the level driver configuration would help here, oh well! :)
