2019, 2020 Skybox Seating Backs


Recommended Posts

I am picking up my 2020 A22 this week that has the skybox seating, but its missing the backrests.  My dealer is having a hard time finding just the seatback sku and was wondering if anyone else got the skybox without the seatback? Also curious on if people actually use them or if they tend to get in the way more.  I'm thinking without the backs, people may fall backwards when the boat changes speeds. Also has anyone ever installed the chillax bracket themselves?

FWIW, we didn't get the backrests and don't regret it. Honestly, we don't really use it as a rear-facing seat very much. When we do, we haven't had an issue with adults falling back when we slow down but we did have a 3 year-old fall back onto floor when we slowed up after rider fell. Things do definitely feel tighter in the lounge area when the seat is in the rear-facing position.

Thanks, Sounds like its one of those features that maybe sounds good but not used by a lot of people. My dealer said the same thing that they rarely use the backs.

Agree with everyone else. When the skybox seat is in the lounge area with the backrest on, it makes it difficult for anyone from the front to get to the back.  However, without the backrest, it makes a great lunch table!

Check out the Facebook group, I built some for a few guys if you search on there. They slide in and out like factory, so if you got a heavy crew simply stow them, if you need waking room use 1 or if you’re like most guys who have them you’ll use both most trips out. I can’t upload pics here.  Feel free to e-mail me for details [email protected]

The seat backs are quite costly as well. We went without them on our 2020 A22, and so far, they have not been added to our wish list. Save your money. It easy enough to add them later if you really feel that you need them.

Not sure if you’re still interested, but my seat backs store on the underside of the back storage lifts.  One under each side.  Not here to discuss the pros and cons of them.
