I love being unique! I am one of the RV-8s with the sheepskin and I love it. I have a little back issue and decided early on that the seats were going to be a "splurge". On a long x-country, there's nothing more comfortable that sitting on sheepskin. My hangar mate also has sheepskin in his -8 but it was from Oregon Aero. I believe that the seats featured in Luke's first set of photos are mine.

If you go with sheepskin, make sure the cut outs are little deeper for the stick because the sheepskin is bulkier and will slightly interfere with stick movement.

That's great to hear. I love the pics of the brown leather interior a few posts up, but not crazy about sitting on hot leather. Plus my wife hates it so it is definitely a no go. Sheepskin it is!!

Here's the latest RV in our Customer Galleries. It's from Darin Anderson just up the road in Washington. The exterior colors and the interior fit together nicely, and kind of remind me of a high end business jet. Thanks for the pictures Darin!
