Class C swivel cab seats

Own a 2012 3010DS Sunseeker (Ford E-450 base) and "heard" somewhere that there is a cab seat swivel mod that is available somewhere. I haven't been able to locate that "somewhere". Any help concerning and are there any owner reviews? Thanks!

Swivel Seats

Attwood Mobile Products has swivels that they designed to work on certain Ford E-450 seats. I am about to purchase one, and perhaps two, for my 2009 Lexington 300 GTS.

I will take lots of pictures and make a video of the installation if it works. They run around $240 a piece. But if they work, they make the useful area of our MH 3 feet longer.

I'll keep you posted.

My problem is they are too low and close to the floor of the coach. Also have entertainment center and useless for watching TV.

Thanks for your input. Did you learn this after you installed swivels?

My Lexington has a 1 1/2" step down from the coach to the cockpit. If I removed the shag carpet in front of the seats I would have a 1" step-down. I recently saw an older Sunseeker that must have had a 4" step-down. I certainly understand why that would not work as you have indicated.

Have you found a comfortable way to watch TV? My wife lies on the sofa and I sit on the dinette bench. Kind of sucks.
We also have the entertainment up front. We were going to move the second TV from the bedroom to a swinging arm located between the sofa and dinette.

Swivels, if they would work would give me a TV watching chair.

Try discountvantruck.com. I bought a swivel for my Chevy Sunseeker. I know they had things listed for Ford's also. I am very pleased with what I bought.

Is it the hard arm recliner fold up chair? And if so do you know the dimensions (length and width)? I have limited space, but this sounds good.
