While searching for our "New to Us" 30 ft motor home, we noticed a lot of people had removed the "chair" that was located behind the passenger seat and in front of the door. This seemed weird, as we were welcoming this "chair". Why would someone remove it??
After we bought the Mirada and started getting some experience with it. I believe we discovered why some people opted to remove the "chair". It was somewhat non-functional as it was to close to the passenger seat, difficult to re-position, and really cramped on the right side of the chair. Basically, almost useless.
I explored several solutions including doing like some, removing the chair. I finally decided to move the chair a few inches farther aft of the passenger seat and see if this would work out.
The first thought was to relocate the entire pedestal aft, but after investigating how the seat assembly was bolted down and would require building a complete mounting structure change under the floor, I nixed this idea. More thinking.
I then thought about making an adapter plate that would mount to the existing pedestal, but with new holes for the chair that would shift it aft by a few inches.
I was originally going to do this with 1/4 steel plate, but decided to do it with 3/4 plywood, quick, easy and could be changed if more mods needed to be made.
Basically, I cut a 13x13 piece of 3/4 plywood drilled the holes, bolted everything down.
The chair doesn't hit or doesnt fell cramped against the passanger seat.

Moving the chair 3-1/2 inches so passanger seat won't hit it
NOTE - We do not occupy this chair while traveling, so I removed the seat belt from it.
