    As a ‘temporary’ GU solution Cuppa mate, think I mentioned a few years back, pardon the pun. Thoroughly can recommend calling in to a specialised mobility type shop hopefully nearby on your adventures out there somewhere? Slow moving stock may find you scoring state of the art technology.
    As before, love my 1/2 price Sciatica air bag cushion, been all over the globe cattle class in years gone by too

    Seat bases for the LTSS were $450 ish last time I got one from Stratos/KAB... they are actually made by Recaro

    So that is $2000 a side. Making the change overs in Brisbane even more attractive. Will save at least $2000

    Once again getting aftermarket seats has been placed on the back burner (pun intended).

    I spoke with the three places who can supply them in Cairns & prices varied between $2800 each fitted, & $3300 fitted for the same Stratos LTSS . $5600 to $6600 is too much for a pair of seats. We will wait until we find some at a better price, either used or 'on special'. Wnt happen before we go up the Cape next year.

    The $1660 each price on the link in MR's post is unfortunately way out of date, I contacted them & would have ordered a pair like a shot at that price. It was a place which provides info to folks with disabilities etc, they don't supply anything, & suggested I contact the Stratos people direct which I did. As of a couple of weeks ago the RRP is $2500 per seat plus fitting kit (plus labour to fit in Qld, where 2 out of 3 retailers insisted engineering approval was required & a plate added to the car @$130 extra). The Stratos people did say that I could probably buy at under the RRP if I bought from a retailer & not from them! How dumb is that!

    Going down to Brisbane, a round trip of 3580kms on the Bruce Hwy (Yuk) to buy seats, albeit custom made & cheaper (but without suspension) is simply not a desirable or convenient option.

    So whilst far from high tec I have invested $90 in a better quality lumbar support than the $5 cheap shop type I had been using in conjunction with a cushion. It had sort of worked but required readjustment every time I got out of the seat or even just leaned forward. The new support is better with the addition of a length of pool noodle to lift it up a little. Not perfect, but at least it no longer needs regular readjusting!

    MrsTea is 'soldiering on' until we can find her a suitable 'Sciatica cushion' of some type, one which does not slide around like the pillows & cushions we've tried. Will wait to see if we can find a local option in/around Cairns when we are living a bit closer next year before we drive up the Cape rather than taking a punt onan unknown ebay/online offering .......... unless anyone has a specific recommendation?

    Aftermarket seat question.

    Nihao Cuppa mate!
    1.5hrs ish hills drive to Tullamarine, 9.5hrs to the Orient, 2hrs train thereafter and repeat again back home tomorrow.
    I do love my portable ‘Roho’ for Sciatica, ‘Mosaic’ I believe scored at least half price years ago although did find adding a good 500mmX500mm ish Aussie Sheepskin under its cover for Cattle class adventures helps farts sneak out silent yet muffled :-)
