Re: Knoedler Air Ride
Reply #22 –
I happened to call David Flanagan JUST at the right time ... and he mentioned that he had just removed a Knoedler seat from a coach where the owner "didn't like it". This man was apparently a little, skinny guy, and you need a bit of "gravity" to make these seats worthwhile. Fortunately, we are well stocked in the Gravity department. We were able to buy it for about half the retail price. We were having other work done, as well, so the light cream (Milkweed?) of the Kneeler chair was used to recover our passenger seat and the sofa (still in the original fabric with all of the fuzzy worn off!)... all of which matched the interior of our coach. I have never been a fan of the wide co-pilot seat. I used to sit on a memory foam, rubber backed bath mat to prevent sliding around! BUT ... with new foam, and the UltraLeather matching the driver's seat, it is a very nice ride! Ours will also swivel with the slide IN, but we almost never bother. The fan/heat is a favorite thing of Jeff's ... but I have to remember to turn it off when we reach our destination .... very quiet! the parts of the seat are infinitely adjustable ... seat, back, arms ... everything. We had a leaky air switch and I ordered one direct from Knoedler in Canada. They have recently moved to larger quarters. I also learned that it is pronounced "Neeeedler", which was helpful.
