Are you putting in swivels for your seats?
If so please post where u get them and how comfortable the seats are to sit in once swiveled
They seem close to the floor
I'm still on the fence
My wife wants the rear stabilizing system instead
The swivels are back ordered. The wrong ones were originally shipped.

I paid $500 parts and nothing for labor at the time of purchase to get the swivels.

I have the rear stabilizers.

I am keeping notes about suspension modifications to improve stability, just in case I NEED to know it someday.

I do not know who is supplying the parts. I will know that when I take in in to be installed. Not until after New Year.

It is not Forest River doing this, it is the dealer. forest River, to the best of my knowledge, does not offer factory installed swivel seats.

I will post (if I remember) the manufacturer when I find out who it is.

We're working on that option. Should have it by Spring. Cheaper to do it aftermarket I'm sure.

The folks at the Sprinter Store said Remo swivels are no longer certified, so they are no longer available. I had the non-Remo swivel installed on the passenger seat. Works like a champ.

I guess you have to remake the queen bed every time you move the slide in and out, huh? I like the floor plan - would probably get the sofa instead of dinette. The front seats do look low for the swivel option. I am interested in seeing pictures.

We make the bed every time we slide the bed in. We just ordered RVSuperBag (similar to the now defunct Travasak) because it was annoying trying to make the bed and the sheets just move around too much because the foot can not be tucked in.

The seats swivel just fine. However, when swiveled to face rearward you will be sitting with your legs stretched out because the seat is very low.

You can ratchet the lever beside the seat to raise the seat. It only goes up about 2"? But it helps.
