    does any one else find the seats in the new autotrail or any fiat based motor home uncomfortable? Just come back from France 2500 miles , my backside feels like it has been shared by the whole foreign legion! In the past I have had a lot of back problems so most of it I think is my fault. The seats are very sculptured to make them look luxurious, but are doing me no good at all. We have tried padding them out from in under, a little better but no where near perfect, so today we went to the fiat dealer, sat in a ducatto van and loads better, a nearly flat non sculptured seat. The seatpad and cover are available at £350, rather steep I thought, but I could soon rack up that much at chiropractors. Anyone else have an opinion on this?

    My Peugeot Boxer came with the standard seats which would be fitted to all Sevel vans and are very comfortable and I can drive all day without any problem. I would have thought that your van would have the same standard seats but just reupholstered to tart them up a bit.

    Google "coccyx cushion" and you'll find loads of possibilities. The wedge shape improves the angle you're sitting at, and the cut-out protects the base of your spine.
