Smile New 2300 2014

Have had our 2300 only about a month. Enjoyed reading all of the forum posts. Found many answers to questions I didn't know I had. The aftermarket swivel seats intrigue me. Can you do it on the Ford? I seemed to understand only the passenger side because of the dinette. Does anyone have a picture? When swiveled how far off the floor is the seat? How comfortable is it for your legs?Does FR sale the part for a 2014? Is this something our dealer could do? Thanks in advance for your help. Boy I sure asked a lot of questions.

1. it is available on Ford only.
2. the height does not change. It just swivels. It is low to the ground, but personally the floor acts like a built in ottoman. When you sit down you can kick you legs out.
3. I've sat there for some time and it was comfortable for me. Is it a Lazy Boy? No...but i'd have to problem hanging out down there reading, etc.
4. You would order the part from your dealer.
5. There may be an issue with your passenger seat. The passenger seat is actually 2" further back than the driver. So when it swivels, it hits the floor. On a unit WITH the swivel seat option we notch that floor and put a little ABS cover over the area. So its not as simple as plug and play...you would have to cut 1.5" of the floor out (double tube there) and put the cover over to get the seat tow work.

There are other companies that offer the swivel seat base in different heights

Would there be any problem swiveling the drivers seat, hitting the steering wheel?

Also could it work on drivers side because of the dinette being right behind it?

The seat slides out at a 45 degree angle away from the door and steering wheel before it swivels so it does not hit those two things. The dinette doesn't really let you sit straight back...more at an angle.

We are looking at 2013 2300 how do you like yours? Does it have enough room..we are concerned the huge dinette makes it too small and no storage for food since there is no pantry..would love to know what you like and don't like

If you look around, you should be able to find a 2013 with a regular booth dinette, which is smaller and gains you a pantry. We build them both ways.
