Overview of Swivel Seats on a Forester 3171 DS

Several of us have struggled with making the decision of whether or not to order swivel seats with this floorplan. I made a video to show how both swivel seats look on the 3171.

Enjoy and forgive my amateur abilities.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to post this video. I am sure it will answer a lot of peoples questions. We should be picking up our new 3011DS sometime after the 15th (finally).

Great job. That actually works nicely as an ottoman.

Brian said in this post from a couple of years ago that they are exclusive to FR. Don't know if that's still the case but a quick google search didn't return any results. Swivel Seat Manual

Great video. I always thought the best idea would be to design a mechanism to rotate the seats 180 degrees then push them together and form a kind of love seat. Even the arm rests would be positioned correctly.

Thanks for this video. When you see the Driver/Pass seats rotated in a Class A it's a nice feature.

But once you see this feature implemented in the Forester Class C you see that it's not really all that usable.

Seems to be appropriate for Class A and not Class C. The seats would have to come UP at the same time they rotate - and they can't really do that due to the truck cab.

Sprinter set up is perfect for swivel seats and that is a Class C. Just need a little booster to set in there...which we're working on.
