Hello....don't know of this is helpful but my director of operations went into her favorite accessory store.....Walmart....and bought several rubber backed, colorful floor rugs that fit the seats exactly. No more slipping and sliding.
Would like to see your new home one day....Our 27 is hibernating in Everett at the moment....waiting for spring to let us come out to play. Cheers.

We have the same problem in our 2017 Classic. Don't know what to do. Don't think I want to sit on floor rugs. There must be a solution. Thinking about having covers made. Anyone had covers made to stop the slipping?

Yes. I noticed the newer ones went to an ultraleather that is perforated. It doesn't look as good, but it's supposed to prevent the sliding. While shopping, I tried one of the older ones, and yes, it looked great and was slippery.

The new models started offering the new material in the 17 Flying Cloud models called "Landmark"; it was offered as an option along with the traditional "Gold Alchemy" which is the "slicker" material. It showed as an option in the FC brochure, but it was not offered in other models such as International, Serenity, or Classic line up. Not sure why they did that, but some FC units have it and some don't. The new interior is one of the reasons we are upgrading along with the ducted air, to a late model 2017, 28' FC Twin; we also did not like slip/sliding around on the cushions.

I notice in the new 18's brochure, that is all they offer is the new stuff. Likely had a bunch of that shiny slick stuff left so they did them at random to fill out the 17 line?
