Jorge just bought a swivel base on amazon to use with the original seal of our bus. Should be here anyday. I will post how it goes on our thread in case you want to check in out in a week or so... http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f11/me...bus-19994.html

Not much. It's harder with a Front Engine bus because of the hump needs to be able to open. My door is midship, so drivers & copilot swivel now-- and there isn't enough room. Working on that mount situation....has to be beefy because I like to eat.

This is what we have.
The passenger seat is from a conversion van. I just made a base for it as it already had a swivel.
The driver's seat is from a junked semi. The swivel mechanism is made for farm machinery. I mounted it between the seat and the air ride base.
The swivel seats make for a much bigger living area in the bus.
How do I rotate the pictures???

There are also boat seat swivels...some with slides. That's what I put in mine. It goes front to rear...side to side...and rotates 360* when combined with the Toyota seat.

Do you happen to have a source for bases like those. Looks like that might cover several problems.

Here's a pic of the makers label. Found this one on Ebay from a guy who sells just boating stuff. No idea who now, but I think he's probably still on there.
