Swap driver's bucket seat for bench?

Happy Father's Day!

I have a 2003 Chevy 3500 cutaway BlueBird MicroBird (5 window), with 14' from the back of the driver's seat to the back door, so I've got ~100 sq ft to work with.
In the interest of conserving space AND having a "front" seat for a passenger, I'm wondering if it's feasible to replace my driver's seat (~21" wide) with a bench seat from a compact truck or even the middle seat of an SUV or van? (I'm thinking in the ~44-48" range) I think there'd be enough room to accommodate it, and I'm curious if anyone here has done a swap, or know someone who has?

Thanks!

You can put a seat where ever you want it if you have room. My co pilot seat is clear over to the right. It's a second row seat out of a 2001 Pontiac Montana mounted on a swivel base from Factory RV Surplus https://factoryrvsurplus.com/product...aptains-chair/

The driverís seat (which I pulled) has a fuse box mounted to the floor underneath, so I canít go with a captainís chair for ME, but iíd Consider it for a co-pilot.
Thank you for the link!
