Winnebago View booster seat additions

Hello,

Hopefully I am posting in the right area. I do realize there is a Winnebago chat on Tuesday nights but I missed that

Anyway, I want to order the booster additions to the Winnebago View 24M front seats. I guess they are recommended to have for comfort when you are lounging or dining at the small table.

Winnebago just e-mailed me back and said they are $436.74 each (not including S/H). HUH ? Seems like a lot? No wait....that is a lot!

If anyone knows where I may get them cheaper or have other ideas, I'd appreciate your replies.

Thanks much

Bo-

I've seen photos of the 'booster seats.' They raise the seat cushion but not the armrests. Are they inflatable? If you just wanted a raises seat, I'd look into making your own out of foam and cover with a nice material. Surely wouldn't cost $880! You could toss them up in the overhead bunk when not in use, if you're a bit creative you could make them so they fold out into a bed backrest or tanning mat for outside use.

I have a 2013 Via with Flexsteel driver and co-pilot seats. These seats power up and swivel and are very comfortable. During the 2013 model year Winnebago changed from the Flexsteel seats to the standard Sprinter seats with the optional cushion package. A friend ordered a 2013 Via and was disappointed and surprised when it came with the standard Sprinter seats. I agree the cushion package is expensive and in my opinion looks cheaply made but anything with MB on it isn't going to be cheap. Flexsteel probably still makes seats for the Sprinters I would check them out.

My new Itasca Navion 24J (Mercedes Sprinter) came with the booster cushions. I think the window sticker said they were between $3-400 for the PAIR. Very high quality. They have the same material and stitching as the seats, and when you put them on the seats, they look so good you can hardly tell they are booster cushions.

Bo,
I'm in the same situation. Dealer offered them to me at cost, $267 ea plus shipping and a 3 month wait to get them (for the $350/pair factory option). I plan to visit a local upholstery shop. They don't need to look like the factory pattern as long as the support is right.

Can anyone share the height please?

They are 5 inches high. I'd suggest you have the uphostery shop use the proper density foam to achieve the appropirate height. You don't want foam that's too soft and squishes down when you sit on it.
