That is the mounting bracket we use at the factory.

The one from "Discount Van Truck" swivels on a single point. Its basically a barrel chair ped. To get that to swivel you have to move the seat back, seat back up, swivel half way, open the door, etc,etc. Good luck getting the driver to swivel with the steering wheel in the way.

The one from Atwood, slides the whole seat on a 45 degree angle towards the rear and center of the coach. So from within the unit (not having to open driver or passenger door) I can swivel both driver and passenger seats.

They are two completely different pedestals. Way more engineering and metal in the Atwood one...because it has to pass a seatbelt test AND slide on a track away from all the obstacles that prevent you from easily swiveling the seat.

I will be looking for the slimline doghouse because I can't see smacking it as hard as I did to remove while going down the road. Leaving it off is no good due to loss of storage and cup holders.

Removing that armrest might be a good idea if I want to stretch out on the couch for some late night tv viewing also! I'll look into it when I get it home this weekend

I would like to install the Atwood ones myself as they are very expensive. My only concern is the wire coming out of the floor and attaching to the seat somewhere. ?Don't want to get hit in the face with the air bag or anything. Any suggestions?

Swivel Seat Brackets for 3011

Where can you buy a passenger site Atwood version. I can't seem to find online anywhere.

Have a drivers side now and really like it.

Just an FYI for those wanting to install a swivel on the passenger side, I believe an earlier post by Brian states it won't fit after market due to the floor behind the seat being cut back on the build to accommodate it.
