We have a 2012 Sunseeker 3170 on a 2011 Ford chassis. A year ago we obtained the driver's seat swivel base available on new Sunseekers from Forest River through our dealer, but the VIN of our chassis had to be beyond a certain number. It also cost a bleeding fortune.

DrewSchmidt, here is a start.

https://www.discountvantruck.com/rvv...nseatbases.htm

Internet Search: "Ford E series front seat swivels". All E series cab sections are the same per year model. Then, if needed, use some of the description phrases to expand your search. It is believed all of the seat swivels are after market.

I have a 2015 2500TS Sunseeker.On a Ford E450 chassis, I believe the swivel seats are an Attwood product.they were already installed . I'll get model numbers later today.Being new they are very hard to swivel.I found I can slide em & turn em around but returning to driving position I need to use a pry bar.(they should free up with use?)

Sunseeker swivel seats

We have them on our 2014 2500TS. They are a bear to operate. There is a trip lever on the in-side side of the frame that you have to trip for them to swivel. On returning them to the driving position, we found that bring them forward to the foremost front will reset them. Sitting in the seat and bring it forward helps because of the weight and momentum. Sometime not. As we agree, they could work better. Will probably try some lub next spring to see if it helps.

All I can say is..... Kitties love the cockpit area! My cat (went to Bridge in July 2017) would hide under the seat, or jump on the console to look out the window or sit in the passenger seat to catch some rays. One time I put the cats litter box in front between driver and passenger seat. This kept box out of the way and gave cat some privacy. This worked until I got an RV with the HWH system (years ago) and the control box was put there.

One time my cat sat in the window on the console when it was freaking TEN DEGREES outside, and COLD behind that curtain......

I miss that kitty....

How do the swivel seats work with the privacy curtain? My privacy curtain covers the seats, swivels wouldn't work.

Cab Curtains

The cab curtains we have in our 2500TS work two ways:
1. They follow the horseshoe inset in the front bunk.
2. They start at the rear of the side cab window, go across the dash area and around the other side window. There are a few little Velcro circles in both applications. When we do the windshield, we use the visors to help support the curtain.
