Hey Kevin, in case no one else has said it, Welcome to VAF!!!

IIRC, the patterns are supposed to be included with the foam.

You could always check with Vans direct.

I asked Van's about this a few years ago since patterns were mentioned in the plans:

Quote:
Oregon Aero don't appear to put any documentation in the seat box.
We called them to find out if they do have anything, but haven't
received an answer, so I assume that they don't have seat cover
patterns etc. Apparently we were optimistic when we assumed there
would be some documentation in with the seats

Thank you for the welcome.
I called van's today and they do not offer front set covers or patterns for the RV-10 they let me know that it would be an infringement on the set manufacture







Hounds forever.... ..... ... ....

Haha! I don't blame her! =)

I made mine from scratch. If you like the design, I can snail mail my homemade "patterns" to her. I don't mind explaining my process either.

Hi Brandi. I will definitely take you up on that offer. Once I have the foam cushions in hand, I will PM you to work the details and have you talk to her. (This will probably be 6 months or so from now.) Thanks so much!!

Another option may be to use automotive seats.

I found Suzuki Swift seats fit almost perfectly in the RV-9, when you remove the steel frame you can slide the aluminium seat back in its' place and voila!


And testing them out for space available before I had an upholstery shop cut out space for the stick movement.
