Has anybody out there ever fitted a swivel seat mechanism to the base of the drivers seat of a Brazilian Bay ?
I used to own a t25 westfalia which had a swivel seat on the passenger side and it gave the cab a great deal more space.

There are several past discussions on this - try using Search at the top.

I had one but took it out because it made the driving position too high (I was looking through the windscreen above the wiper line) and the steering wheel location meant having to fiddle about with seat and backrest adjustment backwards and forwards far too much to be useful to me. Fitting it not totally straight forward - you either have to cut a corner off the swivel mechanism or drill holes in your van.

Having said that, there are those on here who seem to manage ok. Suggest you find the past discussions and make your own mind up!

They are easy to fit, I did ours recently. We had to cut a very small piece off the corner with a hacksaw but was very straightforward. on lining it up to the original holes they were a smaller hole but a quick turn with the correct size of drill bit sorted it out. One thing to look out for.. We have a LHD so when turning the seat there is not restriction (once you cut out the small corner piece) With the RHD with the passenger seat you may get restrictions due to the kitchen unit being behind it. I bought ht eplate from JK for £170 and took a couple of hours fitting it, but did take my time. Once its in it does male a huge difference.
