Sheepskin seat covers

Postby BlueYonder » Wed Jan 11, 2017 7:03 am

I'm sure this has been discussed quite a few times, but what are the best shearling seat covers for the DA40?

I ordered a set of front seat covers from AeroSheep, which are going straight back. They don't cover the whole seat bottom (only about 2/3 of it, actually, which looks skimpy and sorta silly); and they keep popping off the seat back until the seat looks like an oversized wrinkly Shar-Pei dog. I spent the better part of an hour trying to get them on right, and they never once didn't look stupid.

There are a couple of other companies that show photos of seat bottoms that look fully-covered. Or maybe I should just give up. I've got a nice Oregon Aero cushion in the left seat, and maybe I should just give up and get one for the right side, too.

You can buy the factory sheepskin covers (really big bucks). Another alternative that we had for several years on our DA40 XLS was Rocky Mountain Sheepskin http://www.rmsheepskin.com/cgi-bin/SoftCart.exe/scstore/c-Aircraft_Seatcovers.html?E+scstore. In my opinion, very high quality and great fit.

I have the factory covers and I think they are the best design. Have some custom made to match the factory design.

+1 for the Rocky Mountain covers -- they are perfect, may even be better than the factory version
