Seat swivel

Was at a show and noticed the forester had swivel seats. I have a 2014 3010DS and would like to swivel the pass seat. Where can I get the base?

Try typing "Swivel seats" into the search box...

Google "Ford E450 swivel seat" and several vendor will show up when you click on "Shopping".

If you have the power drivers seat option you cannot add a swivel base to it...

It is better to have too much truck than to have too much trailer.

We have some aftermarket ones (2016 E450) The pass side turns roughly 160deg. Not bad, I like sitting there. The driver's side turns about 90 degrees. I like sitting there too, with a laptop.

Ford Van Seat Bases,driver,passenger seat bases

In my case, the dog house is what limits the turning. I believe there are some which slide and swivel, at a higher cost, from a different source.

The bases the factory uses are manufactured by Atwood. Not sure if they are avaliable aftermarket or only through FR.

For me, maybe lower less than an inch. It did not cause any problems with the house floor height and clearance. In my case, I added washers to the front to give more support to thighs (pass), and washers to both front and back, so raise me up as high as could fit without changing bolts, since my seats are not adjustable.
