Went to Forest River FROG Rally in Goshen last week and all my problems with their RV seats and Euro chairs was taken care of. They replaced all with what appears to be a quality material.

Still not resolved and probably never will be. Forest River? BUYER BEWARE!

Original review posted by user Nov 11, 2014

Purchased subject new and after 75 miles the Captains seats and couch cushions were cracking and pealing.Factory service manager agreed to replace them as material was defective from Chinese supplier.

Two years later and 20,000 miles the new seats look worse than the originals. Factory would not agree to replace them but offered to sell me new covers. After email to management they offered to give covers if I would pay to install. They would not guarantee that these would last any longer than the old ones.

I asked for a upgrade but they didn't offer one and could not tell me what grade of material they were using.

I contacted local shop and having auto grade material installed at a personal cost of $650 per Captain seat. Will never purchase another Forest River product.

I sent e mails to the CEO and the Sales Manager but they didn't even reply.They really don't care.

Review about: Captain Seat.
