    we have had heated seats on our cars for years, but despite paying much more for our current MH have cold unheated leather seats

    we bought it used so could not spec it, but see very few with this 'feature' fitted

    Do you have heated seats? Did you spec / pay for them? Was it worth it?

    I have only ever had one vehicle with heated seats, and I only put them on once to try. Not an extra I would pay for.

    I had heated seats on my last 4 cars. All but 1 was added as an option. A must have for me.

    As I approach retirement I realise that sarcasm levels increase rapidly, I now presume they get even greater after full retirement :Rofl1:

    The idea is great, but I can switch off my heated seats in car when warm enough, what would I do :Eeek:

    I personally would rather have a folding mirrors option as I had on my Nissan XTrail, and have now on the wife's Hyundai i20.

    We have them, they were with the motorhome when we bought it, not the sort of thing I would have paid extra for, maybe in the winter when the leather is cold they might get used. :thumb:

    Why stop at heated seats? My son in law in the USA has heated and air conditioned seats. :Eeek: Go for it. Spend their inheritance.

    You can buy the heated panels but it's a complete strip down of the seat upholstery to fit, unless you were reupholstering the seats anyway it's not really worth the effort,
    I did it on one of my previous vehicles mainly to keep the missus happy because she liked the heated seats on the car we had, but a lot of work when thermal long johns would do as well,:Eeek:

    Don't have a Motorhome as yet but yes it's an extra that I have paid for on all of my cars since 2001, not the wife's though, no, not her seat :Rofl1::Rofl1:, her car. Leather is cold way up her in the North :Wink:

    Given how few miles most MH's do, I doubt many heated seats would ever wear out, but good point though, there's an awful lot waiting to go wrong already :Eeek:

    After the discussion on heated seats I have decided to fit some for the missus,
    If it means I can turn down the heater temperature to save my tootsies being cooked then it will be a result:thumb:
    These are the heating pads I am buying,
