Front driver seat problems

So my bus seat looked like someone let their pet hobo use it as a toilet. It must be replaced. My question is what are you guys finding to work best for a whole new bus seat setup?

Big rig repair places that sell used parts and rigs sometimes have them. There is one in Stockton CA where I hope to go get one when the time comes.

You might want to take a steam cleaner to it, before going through the trouble of finding a replacement. Some people toss air-ride seats because a buddy had a few extra leathers from his Miata or whatever. Don't do that. Your tailbone will thank you later.

I swapped out the ugly, utilitarian seat in my first bus for a nice looking leather seat.

Marceps speaks the truth.... I spent MANY miles wishing I had the old ugly seat back.

Reupholstering the existing seat may be an option as well.

All my buses' air ride seats have been trashed by what must have been seriously overweight drivers.
