I think they would be over kill on a MH that has air ride. Plus they would sit higher unless you let the air out. I don't think they swivel either. I sat in ones like that for 35 years. Comfortable in a rough riding truck!

We had air seats in the fire trucks I drove. Went over bumps and you would bounce up and hit your head on the roof!😱

I looked into swapping out my driver's chair for an air ride seat. Can't do it since mine has an integral shoulder restraint and none of the available air ride seats (that I could find) have them. The air base isn't strong enough to meet the crash requirement without an external anchor for the shoulder strap.

Let me clarify - available also means that it works with the mount already installed in the RV, since changing out the mount would require new engineering certification for the seat...

If adapter can be made and it is simple design like 1/4" steel with holes drilled in different places, I wouldn't hesitate putting that particular seat in.

Trucking industry obviously has a lotta seats with some crazy bells and whistles.

Here is a link to a swivel bases. Not sure I trust them but available. I am sure you can make these to fit.

And for kicks, here is A seat ~$3000 delivered!
