ROHO cushions - where's the best prices? (Canada)

Recommended Posts

Hola Ladies and Gentleman. 

Any of you able to share some of your research results?  It's a little obscure and I have a full week of spearfishing and drinking out of coconuts scheduled. I feel like I'd be letting myself down if I cancelled to take up sitting in front of a computer to shop. I don't want to make myself cross with me.  

Anywhere especially known for being "the place" to order?  And I suppose, any tips on say, sizes for the 212? (Avoid bigger/smaller than XYZ?)

Alternatively, if anyone is forecasting their Nan is going to be, ahem...done ...with hers before fire season... Feel free to PM me. 

Gracias.

PH

There is usually tons of them on ebay. 

Its pretty gross buying a used one, but I did it. They seem to run about 100$ used.

That one didn't last long so i bought another one used from a guy in Alberta that gave up flying and it's in mint shape.

I researched the heck out of this a year ago. Best price I could find in Canada was $650-700 IIRC, while they were US$300 with free shipping in the States. Unfortunately, as soon as you tried to have it shipped from the States to Canada, the shipping fees took it right back up to C$700.

I ended up having it shipped to the border and drove down to pick it up. US$300 and no duties or GST because it's classified as a medical device. If you live anywhere near the border, or have an American friend you can ship it to, I'd say that's the way to go. I ordered mine from Vitality Medical and had no issues.

Can't help you out with a size for the 212, but can say that the QS89MPC (15" x 16") works well in the Astar.

Shoo goo or goop.

Don’t travel without it and your Roho will last forever.  Or at least mine has so far.

I have the “Airhawk”.  At least seven years.  Several repairs.  Bought mine through a motorcycle dealer in Kelowna if I remember correctly.  At the time would’ve been cheaper just to order directly from the states.

I've had my Roho for a little over 10000 hrs and couldn't live without it! I use a 10 cell by 9 cell By 4 inch thick. Fits a medium seat perfect. Every few years I have to replace the cover but that's it.

I'm thinking with a doctor / physio / chiro note, you could probably purchase or subsidize one with one's benefits?

Most guys' who have them at our company did what Bif said and get a doctor's note for lower back pain or whatever they need and then claim it at a physio store.

Got mine used for 250 on here.  But at the time I also put out alerts in Kijjijji, with the idea of giving it a good  alcohol wipe down. Got lots of hits btw. Al in the 150-250 range
