Talking Twin swivel seat

Hi I have a camper van based on a 2004 lwb master and want to convert the twin passenger seat to be able to swivel so it faces towards the back, has anyone managed to do this as I am having trouble locating a suitable swivel base. Thanks Martin

Not really sure that that will even be possible.

The swivel will need to be fitted centrally and I am sure that the distance from the centre of the swivel to the furthest side edge of the seat will be greater than the distance from the centre of the swivel to the dashboard - hence the seat would foul on the dashboard if you tried to turn it.

I would also doubt the safety and security of a double seat fitted to a single swivel mechanism.

You could try the guys at Vanbitz.........

The only double swivel cab seats I have ever seen were in an early Winnebago Brave.

Yes you can get them, have a look on the self build forums they fit them in their vans.

Look at Kiravans. They do them. My pal fitted one to his T6 , perfect, swivels inside itís own circumference if you follow. 5* bit of kit and not too pricey I believe.
