It seems to me the seat would need a "jack" to raise it up over 8 inches in order to sit on it. Has anyone actually installed a swivel seat? If so could you post a picture and tell us what swivel mechanism you used?
If you have an older Solera without the swivel, you should know the swivel mechanism adds approximately 1.5" to the minimum height of the seat. Additionally, the seats can be ratcheted (or jacked) upward. Nevertheless, you are correct in assuming the seats are still near the floor level of the coach when rotated. The effect you'll have is that of sitting in a recliner chair, with your feet somewhat extended in a horizontal plane. Very comfortable. I am speaking from the standpoint of having added the rotating mechanism; the newer Sprinters come with a rotating seat; I haven't seen one, so I can't speak to these newer ones.
