But, looking at the pictures of both I find it a big stretch for you to use the words "exact copies"
Agreed. How much different can they look? How many ways can you make an interior?

Default Hopefully good quality

For us in Europe it is refreshing to find someone supplying seats and interiors for RVs. For us in Europe the costs of getting Classic Aero products is very expensive so when I was told about this firm I jumped at the chance.
This guy only supplies 2 models at present RV 7 & 9 along with other European aircraft.
I ordered a full interior in December and by the look of the the photos he has sent of a finished seat I don't think I will be disappointed. Expecting delivery end of the month or so.

Asked him to upholster my RV-8 Van´s foam seats, No problemo! Will box them this week and send them to Germany, exciting to see the results later..
Alot cheaper for myself living in Sweden.

Default Side Panels - Arrived and look great!

My side panels came in from Germany late last week. They look great and the workship is top notch. I installed them in my RV7A today and they fit perfectly. I would definately order from the again.

That's great to hear. I received sheepskin and leather samples from them this week. The leather is actually the same used in BMW and Mercedes. I'm most likely ordering seats and interior soon.

I placed my order for a full leather interior last week. I was told that it would be 5-6 weeks before they start on mine due the amount of orders they received during the 15% off special they were running. Excellent communication so far and I am looking forward to delivery.

It's great to see suppliers for experimental aviation here in the EU. It is so much easier to order and ship! No struggle with transatlantic shipping, customs and VAT.
I'd love to have a Van's and Cleaveland-Tools warehouse within the EU.

Default Top notch

Received my seats and interior a few weeks ago and extremely pleased as to fit and quality.
For anyone in Europe you won't be disappointed as the costs are extremely competitive and you won't have those expensive shipping charges a taxes.
Well pleased and awaiting manufacturing supply dates for other items.

Very interested to hear how supportive and comfortable the seats are. Can you give some info on them?

Default Seats from Germany

I went for full memory foam seat bases and when I trial fitted them they felt quite firm as it was cold in the hanger and they are leather.
Suspect that they will be fine when it is warmer, or in use.
Bought them early as I couldn't resist competitive price.
