Captains Chairs

Anyone have a link to a supplier of captains chairs, wider than 21", that can be installed in a 2003 chevy express? i would assume that they couldnt be much wider or they wouldnt fit, maybe 2-3" at most would be great.

ive googled and viewed many websites selling rv captains chairs but when i check the dimensions, they all appear to be 21" wide in the seating area. despite looking like they might be larger.

im built like a brick sh#t house and i find the stock seats a little small. they arent terribly uncomfortable but if i had to drive longer than a few hours i think i would feel it.

the armrests are particularly troublesome as they are too short. i cant rest my elbows on them.

any other big guys solve this problem?

Re: Captains Chairs

One thing to keep in mind is the Express doesn't have much room between the seats and doors. This means that if you go much wider, the seat will no longer be centered in front of the steering wheel.
