I'm a newbie with one 1400 mile trip under my belt. My neck got very tight on the longer driving stretches. I tried an airline neck pillow but that didn't work well. Is there another solution out there, short of replacing the captain's chair?
A tall friend with an Axis had his seat frame extended at the top and an upholsterer extend the cover. He's happy with the modification.
We are all built differently, but we have found that those mesh lower back support things work well for us. With that, I can have the seat more vertical, which brings the headrest closer. Here's a pic from the web:
Only some of us learn by other people's mistakes, the rest have to be the other people!
That was some of it. We had wind, rain and maybe a tornado or two in the neighborhood. I normally rest my head against the headrest in my car whenever I'm on the road for 10 minutes or more. Makes a huge difference in my comfort level behind the wheel. It seems odd to me that an RV designed for long-ish drives would not have headrests. Then again, maybe I'm the odd duck.
In our 24.1 I've found that with the slide behind the driver's seat it is tough to get the right seat position. I'm only 5' 10" and if I put the seat back far enough so my legs are ok, I can't recline it enough to be comfortable.
Fortunately I did find a position that is a good compromise where my knees aren't in my chin and I can recline the seat enough to not cramp up for long drives.
My wife, on the other hand, has no such issues at 5'.
