Rusty Lee Buddy Seats



Rusty Lee buddy seats.

Rusty Lee


Designed for VW Splitscreen & Bay Window vans and available in both a single and double configuration. The single buddy seat bolts to your bulkhead and folds up out of the way in seconds, the double seat frame simply clips onto the side of the single seat base when needed.

• Metal frame construction.

• Powder coated in grey (other colours available).

• 380mm (width) x 420mm (depth).

• Cushion sits 380mm high (off the floor).

• 12mm plywood baseboard.

• Cushioned with 40mm depth foam.

• Trimmed to your requirements & designs.

Each individual quote for the supply & trim of a Rusty Lee buddy seat will be unique depending on the complexity of the design (of the covers) and also the option of trimmings (leatherette, leather, cloth etc.) that you would like to progress with.

 Trimmed in a leatherette (standard), with a fluted (straight stitched) surface panel design and also edged in piping, prices would start as follows:

• Single buddy seat: £200 (+P&P)

• Double buddy seat: £320 (+P&P).

All of our Rusty Lee buddy seat cushions are trimmed to perfection, using quality upholstery methods.

Our upholstered cushions are fully trimmed (like a cushion on your sofa) and completely enclosed, wrapping the plywood baseboards and foams within the fully upholstered covers. We do not staple our covers to the baseboards, which prevents the covers from ripping and/or becoming loose over time. Basically, every time you move on a cushion the cover will pull, push & move around under you, if your covers are fixed directly to the baseboard using staples all of that force (your movement) is put on the staples and over time this will rip your covers.

Our fully trimmed covers will pull, push & move around under you effortlessly, withstand the force (your movement) and last the test of time.

Having a fully upholstered cushion (on the single buddy seat) also means that the underneath of the cushion is trimmed (in a matching trimming) and as the underneath of the cushion is visible when the buddy seat is folded away, it completes the quality look of your buddy seat.



We love what we do.
