Yeah, I too enjoy a booster seat while driving.

My bus has Air ride suspension but I want to find an Air-ride driver seat for it.

Yeah, these air ride seats are nice. Apparently mine still needs a new shock based on its bounce rate. Makes driving interesting when you hit a bump.

where do you even get air seats from? im guessing that when busses end up in the bone yard the first thing to get yanked from the interior is a good air ride seat...

I have an older bus so I just have the low back basic driver seat... its not bad. . but I have a feeling once i start running 1000 mile road trips im going to want a better seat

I don't know about you, but this air ride seat isn't going to get me any further down the road on long drives. Mine is kind of like sitting on one of those exercise balls because when I drive over a bump I bounce. My arse actually catches air. I generally let the air out of my seat so it bottoms out while I'm on back roads. It sits down pretty low so I probably look like a kid that just ripped off a bus. On the highway it is nice to be up higher.
You can check truck junk yards for air ride seats. They don't seem to be that rare. Maybe run a wanted add to see what turns up.

are you saying that air-seats arent all they are cracked up to be? I'll surely know what a regular seat feels like after 1000 miles because my first drive (other than the test ride I took) will be in the standard low back seat.. my bus is 1050 miles away.. once its painted i'll be driving it home.. (even before I A/C it)..

I like air ride seats. You can get a new one from any truck shop like Peterbilt, kenworth, Mac....
I've also seen used take outs at these shops as well at a reduced price

I feel a bit selfish to put an air ride seat in the Skoolie when my wife and kids will not have that luxury. Do you think the passengers are better off than the driver anyway?
