I am not sure about class C's but rotating seats are normally after market item, not a factory item. For example the "Captain's Chairs" in my Class A are Steelcase products... they rotate.

They may be a bit much for a "C" however.. but then I don't know .. I suspect they make one in your size too.

Here is the link not sure if they will ship to usa items are very heavy cost may be prohibitive but same must be available in usa. Easy to fit especially if you have access to a workshop and a small welder. I only bought one cost 54.00 or $88.00

They have the swivel seat but WOW $229 each seat plus shipping.

When I read your post, the first thing I thought was I don't need seat and all, just the base. Holy cow, that IS just the base!

My class C had a low back swivel behind the passenger seat, across from the dinette. I pulled it out a couple weeks ago, replaced it with a reclining bucket seat from Astro conversion van. There's no where to rotate the front seats due to the layout. but changed the original front bucket seats for a set that matched the rotating one in the rear... I can at least now recline (if I move them forward a little....)

If you don't mind used.... try a auto salvage yard, many full sized conversion vans had rotating rear bucket seats.... (or just the bases....)

Hi Stuart
You don't need to pay that sort of money I just found some for you on ebay 58.00 see link attached below. These are the same ones I used, you need to be a bit handy with the spanners and welder but mine cost me another 30 each by the time they were fitted. My suggestion buy one and do the passenger seat first as the driver seat is very very difficult to do and not really a great succes as it will only part swivel. Depending on your seat frame when fitted it may lean back towards the windscreen when fully swivelled we cured this with a small cushion. Don't have an RV anymore so can't go out and look for you, going European van next probably 8 year old S 820 Hymer. By the way we live in Gloucestershire UK.
Hope this helps
Ror
