Coachmen Concord Seats

Hello, we bought a 2015 Coachman Concord recently. The only issue I have is I'm 6'5 and the driver's seat is so far forward it makes driving difficult. I have called Coachman asking if there is hardware to move the seat back and also went to General RV and Mentor RV and they had no idea other than buy new seats. I can't believe there isn't a hardware base that can be installed to move the seat back. There is about 12 inches of space to move the plate back but there is a 1 inch rise in the floor behind the seat. Any ideas for a resolution? Thanks, Terry Stull

Okay……your question is more about an issue in the cockpit of your vehicle, and not an issue with the “house” part of your Coachman Concord.
Is your vehicle built on the Ford, Chevrolet or Sprinter chassis?
You’re asking about a metal seat base being moved, not a problem with the seat/fabric material.
As always, a few photos always help, especially the area of the 1” rise behind the seat base you have today.

Moved thread from the General Tech and Repair section to the Coachmen Motorhomes sub-forum since the OP's questions are specific to a Coachmen motorhome and not general questions.

The seat base, and adjuster, is most likely a Ford part. Here is a picture of a E-450 passenger side base off EBay. You should be able to adjust the seat forward and backward over a range of several inches. If Coachmen installed a swivel base, that allows the seat to rotate to face the rear, that may be the problem.

Does the seat move forward, or backward, at all?

Seat Bracket

Good morning, it does move back and forth. It needs to go back about another 8-10 inches. I went to 2 dealers and one said they had no idea how to fix and the other said go to www.Seats4rv.com. Very nice seats but no bracket solution.

I've seen seat re-locator kits on EBay that should work. Basically another bracket that goes between the existing seat bracket and floor to move it back a few inches. Here is an example of a set.

The question I have is can your seat base be moved further back without it hitting the wall behind it?

Yes, there is about 8-10 inches behind the seat. There is a 1 inch rise in the floor right behind the seat the 6-8 inches behind that

Then a universal kit should allow you to move it back as both ends will go up the same distance.
