At one point I looked down I was going over 70. Never did that before, I was happy to get it up to 60. The first thing I did tonight when I get her back to my work was install all the new captan chairs, and new swivel ones I got from Discount rv. Here are some more pics. I take it tomorrow to upholster shop in morning to get the sofa done to match the dinette and swivel chairs. Oh a few before and after pics.

Your coach is looking great. How do the new chairs feel? I ordered new captains chairs for my 280 from Discount and hope they feel as good as they sound. Which chairs did you get? We ordered the De Leon with the high resilience foam, heaters, lumbar support and adjustable arms.

Cheers, Dan

Captains RV Seats

What was their excuse for the wrong color John? Did you ship them back or did they make a deal with you.
I was going to order a lounge recliner from them but, hearing your story has me a bit hesitant??? Is this the correct site? Disountvantruck

Wow, they kind of missed on that color. I'm color blind and I think I could tell the difference between almond and dark blue. Have you sat in them and how do they look and feel?

We ordered bisque but they aren't scheduled to arrive until April 6. Did yours arrive on or near the promised date?

I hope they resolve your color problem satisfactory and that our seats look and feel as good as they make them sound.

Yes Dave, that is the site.

Cheers, Dan

Mine are all very comfy. Love them. I did have to remove the tracks that slide forward and back. Don't remember the color. I will find out.

I Have not opened, nor removed the seats. the color , in no way will work. I feel they got the address switched with another order. I am counting on them to send a carrier to pick them up. ???

I emailed them Two times last week. and called, left a message on Monday.

So far. No Response. I will call again Tomorrow.

I also have a sleeper Sofa ordered. Also Almond color.

They were very good to deal with for me. Always there when I called. That seems strange. I wanted to get the sleeper too. I just didn't feel like retrofitting it.

Did you'll do leather? Remember I did vinyl and the names of the color are different. I like vinyl for the durability, and clean ability. I am still looking for my color chart.
