Replacing front captains chairs

I have a 2017 Vegas and after a 3k mile vacation my back was killing me. Has anyone replaced their front Captains chairs for something more comfortable? If so, what did you go with?

Which floorplan do you have?

I've found them to be pretty comfortable on my 24.1 but with the slide behind the driver's seat I've had to figure out a good position where its reclined enough for my back but not too far forward where my legs cramp up.

I have the 25.5 floorplan.

Ah yeah the 25.5 also has the slide blocking the driver's seat from going all the way back. Try sliding it just a little more forward (at the expense of the legs and knees) to get a slightly more reclined position--you may find it a tad more comfortable.

I have an ACE and found the driver seat completely intolerable. Changed it to an air powered trucker's seat (Bostrum wide-ride). Best upgrade I ever made to the rig.

I've found the seat on my 24.1 Axis was sloped towards the passenger side and did not provide enough thigh support. I added some spacers under the seat mount to change the slope sightly and have found it better.

Ron put spacers under the seat mount on our 24.1 ... he has done this on all of our motorhomes...makes a difference
