We are taking delivery this week of our new Viking. The one thing we noticed at the dealership is that the difference between the wife's legs and mine are quite different. We need to be able to adjust this. Any ideas?
Thanks

The Viking does have a adustable Drivers seat, bad thing is though, its not like a car/truck, where you pull a lever and can slide up or back, on the Viking, you have to unbolt the base and move it to diffrent holes everytime you need to adjust it.

Just seems like a hassle to have to do that every time. I thought maybe someone knew of a different company that had something that would work.
Thanks

I am going to look into it next week when i get home my wife picked ours up today. im thinking a slide for a boat seat might work might have to add a adapter plate for holes to line up though.

I just installed a seat adjuster in our viking today. This is what I used, I just installed a seat adjuster in our viking today. I used a Ranger adjuster from Amazon. See it here.[URL="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0049W2VDO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1"]http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0049W2VDO/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I had to make minor changes but nothing requiring more than a drill. The seat is now abut an inch higher.

It's not perfect but it works well.

This is all the way to the rear:

As far forward as I can go. My wife can go farther:

I used the Viking attachment threads in the floor. I cut the adjuster bar and inserted a rod to make up for the extra width:

This shows the added height:
