Thor Vegas Seats

My original seats started flaking so I decided to have them reupholstered. What a mistake. I was promised a completion date a couple months from my drop off date...since Ive found the business is out of business and so are my seats. Question is...where is a good place to purchase both cab seats that won't flake?
Not looking for the most expensive but similar to the factory seats minus the flake. thanks

Well that sucks! Do you know if your seats are still in the closed building? Likely the owner would let you pick them up. If they are not to be found it’s a simple matter to find replacements in every price range. Just start with an internet search for “replacement RV seats” or “RV furniture”. Good luck.

You can look here for some seats with integrated seatbelts.

I had peeling off seats and sofa in my 2015 Thor Axis. Just replaced them all with Ultimate Leather from Shop4Seats. And I am glad I did. The only thing is the waiting time. It takes about 2 months to get them done. Other then that you will be very happy with your new seats. If you call them ask for Angela. Excellent sale rep.

Hello GracieB...,
I bought Ultimate Leather Qualitex De Leon in Beachwood color IL105.
I also picked 2 option from their list:
- High Resilience Foam Upgrade
- 7 Spring Seat Frame Bottom

I would like to add couple comments here. The seat is very comfortable, with great support but it is pretty "hard/solid" in comparison with the old one. I just need to get used to that. Perhaps on longer trips this seat will work better. On the other hand the seat is brand new/unused and has to feel different so, I am not sure how the seat would function without that upgrade.

Also, (I am guessing here) because of the high resilience foam the seat now is little higher. The chair is mounted on 10" pedestal base so your legs are higher and further away from gas pedal. I am considering replacing the base to 7" but need to drive around more to see if I can live with that. Just so you know. Happy shopping

I do have 2 months before the new set arrives but I want to be prepared. Thank you.

Thanks all for this info. Seems smarter to replace than reupholster the seats. Can't replace the jack knife sofa in a Vegas 25.2 because of the water tank below. I think I'll try to reupholster it myself.

Recliners are all 110v
So you can use anytime if you have them plugged into a 110v Inverter line
Or
You can use only when the Genny or Shore-power is pumping 110v

For a new rv-er this Forum is an incredible source of information. Thank you.

Yes the recliners are all A/C so genny or plugged in.

On our 24.1 the 120V distribution box for the slide is/was on the rear part of the slide right behind the couch. Our installer simply removed the top and replaced it with two outlets...easy peasy.

Look just to the left of the table poles in this pic and you'll see the box:

If you look behind your couch you should be able to see it.

Note that our 24.1 is a 2014 vintage so the tables are stored behind the couch (instead of in the closet like they are on the newer ones).

Our 2015 Axis 24.1 has exactly the same setup with the tables and legs storage behind the recliners. This is how that area looked like in our Axis after I have removed the old couch.
It looks like the distribution box is placed in the same spot. Thank you for the great tip!Click image for larger version

Oh yeah one more thing: The installers had to move the two table pipes to the other side of the rack--the chair didn't have enough room to recline.

Here they are in their new spot:
