Lightbulb Driver/Passenger Head Rest

Looking for some solutions related to head/neck support for the driver's seat (specifically) and the passenger seats in the GreyHawk.

There is absolutely no head/neck support in these seats, and after a few hours of driving...it's a little annoying. I'm 6'3", so my shoulders are right at the top of the back of the seat, so there is no way to lean/pin my head back, at all. See pic of me and the DW in the cab.

Wondering if anyone has any solutions????

None on the 2016 either.
See you are from NJ. We are as well, at least for the time being. In Ringwood.
Where did you buy your Greyhawk and who services it for you?

Im guessing that the vehicle ( frame, drive chain, etc) is not Jayco, but probably Ford, or other OEM

Try searching for replacement seats based on the OEM, you might find some compatible choices

Caroga, I bought it and get it serviced up at Garrick RV up in Oak Ridge.

Jmooney, a replacement (used) seat is about $500-600 and I have no idea if that means it's a power seat or not. Was really looking for some aftermarket genius idea, but I can't find anything out there. Oh well.

Thanks guys.

Uncomfortable seats would be a deal breaker for me. As much time as you spend driving, it has to adjustable and comfortable.

I would look at a Ford seat. Maybe at a salvage yard? May take some research.

That's three Greyhawks for Jersey !!!

I've wondered about the headrest too, but as I'm 5'9" it's never really been a big issue for me.

I agree with you Bikester. I'm 6-1 and I could use a head rest too. I'll look around.
