So cool. We have asked to have one installed in our new 3170.
Thank you for posting the pictures.

Hi Brian,

Many thanks for sharing the pics with us. I read in another posting where someone buying a 3170 off a dealer lot was having the dealer install the swivel seats, and, well, that got me thinking:

1 - Is it the case that owners of the Ford450 cutaway can retrofit the swivel seats on their existing Ford non-swivel seat?
2 - Is FR selling the swivel seat kits or is Atwood?
3 - Any idea how much weight the swivel seat mechanism adds?
4 - Does the swivel mechanism elevate the seat?

Thanks a lot...

Are the parts to convert our 2011Sunseeker Model 3100 on a 2010 Ford chassis available for retrofit? What would be the cost?

1. Yes and no. We have to modify the floor slightly on the passenger side. (Passenger seat is 2" further back than driver so we have to notch the floor to allow for the swivel) We started that floor modification about a month or two ago. The 3170 that was purchased was one of the first ones to have that modification, so it was set up for the swivels...but it was not optioned from the dealer. Driver side, nothing special needs to be done if it was a Ford factory seat.
2. I'm not sure if you can buy them from Atwood or not. I'll check into that.
3. I'm guessing about 50 lbs for the pair.
4. No

Hi Brian, Thanks for the pics! The option looks great! Are there any tripping hazards when the seats are in their normal drive position? Not sure how they move in at a 45 angle. Is it a slide or a pivot move? Is this done at the floor level or does it occur above the "stock" seat base? Thanks again for the help!

Don

1. not sure what you mean by "tripping hazards". You can barely tell it is any different than a Ford stock seat other than a little black lever. Barely sticks out.
2. It is a SLIDE, then a pivot move.

Next step is to go shoot some video.

Difference between Sunseeker and Forester

I have heard that there are very minor differences between the Forester and Sunseeker. I'm interested in the 3010DS Sunseeker and it is almost the same as the 3011 Forester. In my area the dealers are selling lots of Sunseekers and don't have any on the lots. Like some opinions on this. Big difference in price also.

Love my 3010. I have a 2012. Not a substantial difference. There is a thread around here with the differences.
