MBS2401WS Chassis Seat Booster

I am looking for a booster for the chassis front seats. When I rotate the seats they are too low to be useful. I have seen other Sprinters with booster seats cushions. Does anyone know a product I can purchase to accomplish this?

Thanks
Paul

Paul, those boosters come standard on the Dynamax Isata 3. I would find a dealer close to you, or maybe call a dealer listed on the internet. The Isata 3 had the exact same chassis and floor plan as our Forester.
Good luck!
Kathy

I've been looking at products from Bolster Buddy:
https://bolsterbuddy.com/
These were intended for use on boats, but I think they'll work for the Sprinter's front seats. They come in small, medium, large and extra large and add 4 to 8 inches of height. The color choices are pretty limited - white and charcoal for all sizes, mocha only available for the large and extra large sizes.

I've been thinking of getting the medium size ($80 each) though I might spring for the large in mocha ... but they're $30 more...

It's up to you, but the Dynamax boosters are specifically made for those seats. Google pictures of Dynamax Isata 3,-and you'll see what I mean.

Oh, I absolutely agree that those boosters are great. As I recall previous discussions, though, they're either unavailable aftermarket or else exceptionally expensive. But maybe things have changed.

If you do find a source for them, please post the details!

For folks that wish to rotate the passenger seat , so it faces to the rear and is raised about 1 1/2 inches I have the imported kit.

Out Isata 3 has the MB factory installed setup, and dumb me did not notice it before purchasing the rotating kit.

HEAVY duty item about 40 lbs to ship.

PM if interested , located in Middletown CT 06457

What year is yours? 2016 came from FR with 2 boosters. My 2017 only 1. I got them to send another one gratis because their brochure stated it would have 2. I can't remember the price it would have cost (they were not cheap). FR has a source which may or may not have your color choice in stock.

We have a Forester 2018 MBS 2401 W. It came with 2 boosters as std. equipment. Maybe your dealer can get Forest River to supply them. Good luck.

My 2016 Isata 3 came with two Cab Seat Booster Cushions as an option. They listed on the sticker for $292.50 for the pair.

Mimay12 is right - plan on s[ending about $300 each for the boosters. No idea why they are so pricey as there is nothing fancy about them. These come standard on 2017 and later models. Had to go round and round with our dealer as ours did not have them when we bought it, but they ordered a set for us at n/c.

The boosters from Forest River are pretty expensive but by far the best option IMHO. They are thick enough to put anyone sitting on them close to level with others sitting in the dinette so you are not looking up at them. Additionally they put you high enough so your legs are comfortable and don't feel like your sitting on a beach chair. They are very comfortable, firm and match the seats perfectly. I would not go with something that mashes down like most of the cushions I have seen.
