Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

Is that green vehicle a mail jeep? I used to have one that was painted purple. I bought it from a friend's mom who was a mail carrier. What a great little vehicle! Only downside was having the steering wheel on the right side rather than left. But it sure was fun to drive!

On my last motorhome they where bolted thru the floor. Any chair that could be used during transit required seatbelts and bolted thru the floor....... Even the sofa was bolted thru the floor.
You want it secured so it will stay in place in case of accident.......

Just food for thought

On the blue swivel rocker I have, I drilled out the four rivets holding the stand to the swivel plate, and then bolted it up through the floor. I agree that it needs to be very secure if you're going to use it in transit.

Re: 87 Wayne Lifeguard international S1700 CXXVI

so i guess i will bolt the chair to the floor, then rig up some kind of seat belt for it, and find a way to lock the swivel/glide action.
