Cockpit seats that swivel to face living area?

I get the impression that most class A motor homes do not have drivers/co-pilot seats that can swivel around to face the living area. I think that Winnebago offers this, but many/most brands don't. Am I wrong?

It seems obvious to me that you'd want to get the maximum use out of those comfy chairs... perhaps I'm missing something?

Mine does but it didn't always. During a trip to the FW Factory they changed the base for me. It's a nice feature that we use a lot.

My coachmen mirada does, though the driver's side is a pita to get turned around.

I have yet to see one that does not! Once you figure out how to turn the darn things :-)

I think it's the other way around, most do rather than most don't. Just look at any brochure showing a cockpit view. It's figuring out how & that can take a bit with the pilot's seat sometimes.

Our Bounder cockpit seats turn around.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Our 2000 Holiday Rambler has full round swivel front seats but the driver's seat is somewhat blocked by the back of the dinette set.

My Safari does. Best feature is the motorized footrest on the passengers seat.

There is a nut on the top in the middle of the base. If your seat does not swivel you may have to loosen the nut a turn. Sometimes they are over tightened. Some bases have a cotter pin thru the nut to keep it from getting loose by vibration. There is a nylon washer on top of a metal washer under that nut.

I have 2011 Daymon Daybreak and my seats do turn to face the living room but, like others have stated the drivers seat is a pita but,there is definitely a sweet spot that it has to be in to be able to rotate it around.Good Luck!!
