For what it's worth...
I bought a Road Sofa last year, went with the gel, I'm happy with my choice.
The seat is very firm, but 5-600 mile days are a lot less painfull. (Unbearable before the new seat)
I also went with the leather, although of good quality and comfortable, I don't think I'd recommend it over the vinyl.
Now then, the heater may be worth some investigation.
If you're tall, over 6 feet, have them add an adition inch to the seat, or if you're vertically challenged, they can cut an inch out and narror the front so you can get your feet down at stops.
Lastly, don't try to evaluate your seat before you have about 1,000 miles on it.
