I just installed swivels on both seats, got them from Eurocampers. Couldn't get a picture with someone setting on them but here's these pictures. Hope they help.

thanks for the photo. Do you use it very often? Trying to decide if we should invest the $$ in this mod.

They do sit low to the floor, but then you don't need a foot rest. You could convert one rather than going all in.

I just installed ours so haven't been able to use them let. But I do see a great advantage to having them and plan to use them a lot.

Thanks for the feedback, where do your legs end up. Don't they block the door?

Blocking the door is not an issue. They don't lock in place so I guess it would depend on the angle you were sitting. I actually turn it toward the step well when getting up. Makes it a little easier when you put your feet in the well to stand. In hkreck's photo the slide is in so you don't see how much clearance you actually have.

Like them

Larry,
We have them on our 2015 Solera and really like them, we do, however tend to use the passenger one more than the driver side.

We like our swivel seats but only use them when we have company. Much prefer the reclining loveseat we installed. Even tho the front seats are low they are very comfortable.
