So the title actually says it all. Has anyone attempted to fit swivel seats in their 70's series? Room seems limited...

Currently building my HZJ75 camper interior and was wondering if its possible to make the passenger seat swivel like in larger campers. Would be an comfy addition!

I'm fitting a Scheelmann aftermarket style seats to replace the uncomfortable 1.5x passenger bench. Won't have an armrest or console installed between the seats.

These kind of bases can be bought for campers - can't see why they wouldn't work. Ideas? Comments? Experiences?

I fitted one in a panel van once. It raised the seat height a little, the seat hits the door as it swivels so you need to open and close the door as you go round. Never use it

The narrowness of the Troopy might be an issue. You could always try making a ply base to spin your new seats on before fitting!

I mocked up a Seats R Us swivel base with my passenger seat just for kicks when building out a van a few months ago. Yeah, you have to open the door and do lots of slider moving to get it to work. It does make for more usable space though. Rodney, even more reason to do a more sport style seat that won't be too wide. I decided against it as a center console is just a necessity for me.

Some of the 79 series RV troopy’s came with swivel seats but I think went to the side only
