Best after-market swivel base for MB Sprinter

Can those who have installed after market seat swivels on the MB seats, comment on best price and ease of installation. Are the ones offered, the same as OEM installed, as far as functionality and operation if known, etc. I see as much as $100 bucks pricing difference researching on the net. Thanks.

Got mine from Eurocamper, both seats easy to install. On the drivers seat I found you can pump the seat up to get over the brake so no need for redoing the brake like they show in the instructions.

Do any of the swivel bases rock or move when in the forward locked travel position.

We just finished a trip about 300 miles, I never noticed any movement on my swivel seat at all.

Got mine from Eurocampers on sale for $243 plus shipping. Only did the passenger side. We just got back from our first trip with it. I am not sure if we will do the driver's side at this point but we are definitely glad we did the passenger side. Of course we have a couple kiddos on board so it makes eating and hanging out inside the rv a lot more comfortable. I find it more comfortable for lounging than the dinette. It is very solid and there has been no slop, play or rattling with it. But then again it is new. It does add a little to the seat height.

AM now looking to add seat swivels , at least to the passenger side.

Is there an update to this older thread?

Does the door have to be opened to swivel?

Sources? Prices?

FFred, No the seats will swivel with the doors closed. The driver's seat has to be pushed back away from the steering wheel and there is a adapter for the parking brake which may or may not be necessary. I found if you pump the seat up you can still swivel over the brake. Not sure about the price got mine at Eurocamper a couple of years ago. Happy camping.
