I have the stepped bench and my kids are good with it, I had to extend the grab bars up about 2" with some flat stock.
past afflictions include limey motocars and bikes, R60/2 & a R65ls, and a Citroen.

"Best" is really subjective. For me, if I gotta ride pillon seat the stepped bench would be most comfortable for me over any distance/time. For hanging on handle sake I'm used to pillon riders hanging on to the driver. On a side note if your plan is putting the trips in the tub and wife on the pillon. Make sure the weight in the tub is greater than the pillon passenger weight. What ever sidecar outfit and seat you end up with, "please" spend the solo learning curve time learning how to pilot an outfit safely before you you haul precious cargo. You can always pick/swap seats later.

For two up riding there is only one choice. A solo seat on one bike and another on another bike.

Riding with a passenger is like sitting on George Castanza's wallet.

Subjectively, I'd say the factory Enduro seat is worth consideration. It's a flat, full-length bench seat.

It's been my experience that individual tractor-style seats lock driver and passenger in a single position. There isn't any accommodation for fore-and-aft movement as legroom and/or comfort requirements may necessitate. Your undertaking with this style of seat may differ from mine; we all have our own requirements. Best of luck finding a solution here.
