THOR #4032
Bad design

It is also not as high up as I would like it. So my knees stay bent to the point that my thighs sit above the seat. The result is driver fatigue because the seat does not hold my legs in place, my muscles do. I did buy a gel seat cushion and keep it slid a little bit forward to support my thighs. My DW is only 5'2" so when she drives she has problems opposite of mine.
I conclusion of this, after hearing from many is it is just a bad design. One size fits all usually means one size doesn't fit anyone. I hope Thor will address this problem in the future. Next time I buy a motorhome, the driving comfort and safety will be #1 on my list. I don't care how much glitter and extras you put on a motorhome, if you drive it (and who doesn't) comfort and safety should come first. Three TVs are not more important than driver safety and comfort.
