I just installed a 6 way co-pilot seat for the DW. She hated the manual seat that came from the factory only thing power was foot rest but that didn't operate correctly. New seat is bigger and can move forward and backwards plus more.

Wayne does that put her at the same point forward as you? How much was the new power base?

Thinking about flipping my Georgetown XL for Berkshire 400BH

Phil it moves her forward and closer to me. Cost was 1500 FR picked up installation. I have heard that Bradd and Hall offer same style at less cost.

Thinking about flipping my Georgetown XL for Berkshire 400BH

I haven't done anything to the passenger seat. Now I am vertically challenged. So I changed the drivers seat. Click image for larger version

On the drivers seat I drilled new holes in the plate on the bottom of the seat. Maybe 2" further back. That is only on the front two bolts.

I was unable to move the back bolts so 2" forward ran the bolts in the back off the plate. On the back ones I put a group of washers to hold back in place.

The plate can not move as the new holes in the front hold it. The washers hold the back in place. The washers are every bit as tight as the front bolts.

I attach two pictures. One picture will show the old holes and front bolts. Back bolts and washers on other picture.

Not sure how the pictures ended up at the top of the print. But so be it.

I was thinking that also. I'm not sure I would trust that washer in a accident.

Russell,
I had kind of thought about looking into doing something like this before. After seeing yours, I may have to reinvestigate the possibility. Maybe I'll even have something done by Goshen. Thanks for sharing...

If that washer don't hold the bottom plate has to bend. If that happens ---well my guess is I'll not be posting about it.

I would of welded a flat plate on it but I think I had to disassemble the thing someway to unhook the electric--- to get chair out of coach.

Russell.

We tested the Georgetown and the Berkshire on the same day and instantly knew we wanted the Diesel pusher with the air suspension. We have been extremely happy with ours (390BH-60).
