swivel seats?

We have a 2010 Georgetown 350 and was wondering if the drivers and or passengers seat can be fully turned around to face the living area, can't seem to figure out if this is possible, the seats will only turn so far.

Unless they changed something the best I've been able to do is have the two seats face each other across the engine hump.

I have a 2009 Georgetown 374 and the passenger seat will turn around to 180 degrees to face backwards. The drivers seat will only turn 80 degrees to face the passenger seat. Having said that, you have to play with them to even turn them that far. They should require the design team to live in their designs for at least a week before they can be implimented into production.

Wow, I turn my drivers seat all of the time on my 2005 Georgetown 359TS.

I tilt the steering wheel full up.
Put the armrests full down so they fit under wheel
Tilt seat back forward then turn. You have to slide fore and aft at times to clear the wheel. Makes a great easy chair.

The passenger aeat turns easily but because I have a chair right behind it, it is only useful at about 45 degrees.

Ditto bend302 comments.

We have a 2010 378TS. Both seats turn 180 degrees. As above, you must pull chair seatback all the way forward with the full chairs positioned all the way forward to the dash; then, rotate the seats to degrees desired. Re-adjust the chair backs and full chair position once rotated.

I have a 2010 Georgetown 379. My driver seat will turn around and face backward but the passenger seat appears to be mounted too close to the side wall to allow it to make any turn at all. I wish they would have check this during seat mounting as it would be better for this seat to be able to turn around. Good luck.

Well I have a new 360 and I spent a half an hour trying to figure out how to get the seats around...on the drivers side you would have to take off the steering wheel.. They only will turn on quarter of the way. What was FR thinking...oh...that's it...they wern't.
This is very annoying.

Unhappy seats frustrated me to no end

I have a Georgetown 330, and neither seat would swivel. The driver's seat would go about 1/4 of the way and hit the steering wheel and the pass. seat was too close to the wall and would not turn at all.

At first I thought I would re-drill the mounting holes for the base, but on closer look, the holes have a steel reinforcement between the upper and lower floor sections that can not be repositioned, so that was not an option, since the sections would compress together when bolted down again due to lack of strength .

My solution was to get 2 more seat slides and mount them at 90 degrees to the original ones. This allows the seats to slide both front to back and side to side. You can move the seat which ever way it needs to go while rotating it to clear things.

Both seats are now able to swivel to face into the motor home with the back facing the window with no problems.

Drivers seat 180 degrees, Passenger seat only turns sideways because of the dinette immediatly behind it.

I am intrigued by "Georgetown" post with the additional seat slide modification. Can you post a picture or two? I am having a hard time seeing this in my mind. It sure would be nice to have our passenger seat turn fully.
