    Does anyone have experience swapping a semi truck seat with an RV captain seat, or if that's possible? The RV captain chairs are just so plush and comfortable

    I'd be worried about longevity. I doubt they are made to be in the seat 11 hours a day 340+ days a year.

    They aint. Place i worked at years ago put them in a bunch of trucks to apease the drivers. Most were broken and replaced after about a year or two. They used a few diffrent brands too and none of them save a handful of the expensive "semi style" top end ones held up.

    Well the quality of the seat going into a $250k rv is crap, so you would be better off having a good upholsterer refitting the seat with quality material and custom padding.

    Plush isn’t always a good plan. Especially in a truck seat
    I’ve had some plushier type seats and after 3 hours I would start shifting around
    I have had a Minimizer long haul seat for the past 4 years. At first it seemed too stiff but I can drive all day with little if any discomfort
