Folding seats - can you reverse???

Hi all!

I'm wondering if you can take the double folding seats that are put into some shuttle buses and reverse the direction that they fold.

I am able to find many folding seats for the driver's side but I need 2 for the Passenger side and have not been able to find any within a few hours of me in Western PA.

Example:

ok so i think it may be possible but not sure?
i zoomed in the best i could but still cant tell.
i found the same stationary seats for my bus on facebook lol.
i took parts from the bottom right and left side of seats and combined them to make my one double seat with seat belts.
so its possible you may be able to turn the mechanics around underneath?
hopefully its that simple and you are mechanically inclined?
if not it may be best to spend a day trip and go get them.
those are cool folding seats and are a great option to make more room if needed to haul toys and stuff!
would be cool to have one on each side facing forward in the front when down for traveling.
then fold them up out of the way when camping!
i have mine face forward when driving then moves sideways like a couch for camping LOL
have fun!

Nope-any attempt would be like putting a left hand glove on the right hand.

I hung on to my folding seat for a couple of years, then one day tossed them on the trailer for the dump run.

ah bummer....
those things look awesome?
i could come up with some cool stuff to do with them?
you could remove the seats on both of them and turn it into a 8''-12'' thick folding bed?
motorcycles or bicycles in the back with a folding bed on one or both sides!
LOL
