Seat conversions

My husband and I have a holiday rambler Augusta. 2011 and only 21k miles. Its like new inside and out but only 26 and little seating... weve looked at trading it for something bigger but just not finding the perfect one without going over $100k! What wed like to do is get pedestals for the passenger seat to get us extra seating. Ive called to holiday rambler, several dealers and several rv repair places to see if we can get the turning pedestals like class c leprachaun have and a few others. No one can tell us where we can get this considering theyre just a ford chassis seats.anykne have any ideas?

I looked at these models for people at my Ford dealer which also sells RV's. Looking up your rv, it is a Ford E-350. My coach is a Class A with a Ford chassis. So they are not the same chassis in regards to seats and here is why. You have a step down from your living area to your driving area, about 4 inches I think. In my Class A it's all the same level.
So when you turn your passenger or drivers seat to make it part of your living area, you have that 4 inch, call it a lip, to contend with. They have swivel seats for your rig, I saw them when I went to look. I don't remember if they went up and down some to miss the lip, maybe not. I recently replaced my seats and had to change the pedestals to a shorter height. FYI, I paid around $50 plus shipping for each, Norco Industries. I think they actually manufacture them there. They may have what you need. I will give you a link shortly. Otherwise here is what I would do. Go to a dealer who has that rig with the swivel passenger seat and look around under it for a label. Next time I go to town, I will also look for you. It would be nice to have the seats swivel huh. Big difference especially in your rig. I will edit with the link. Good Luck

I'm surprised nobody you called could help you. I did stop by the RV place by me today and asked a few questions. He was searching for me but I told him not to give it much time and I left. If one was to do some googling I bet you can find something for you. I did look at a E-350 while I was there and it did have a swivel passenger seat. Give the places listed above a call and see what happens. It can't be that hard.

Hi Amy,

RV owners of the Ford E350 and E450 chassis swap standard seat bases for swivel bases all the time for the front driver and passenger seats. I don't know where they buy them, but they are available. That would be your cheapest option. Just make sure when shopping for a swivel base, the centers of the seat mounting stems are the same as your seats. There is a 10" and the other might be 8" on-center, or maybe it's 12 and 10 inch. You want the same as your front seats have. Also make sure to get the kind that also slides forward & rearward, not just swiveling alone.

The other feature I have read that you have to look for w/ rotating seats for the Class-C Ford is where the driver's seat slides back diagonally and THEN rotates (to clear steering wheel). I researched at one time myself, but decided that since seat came out so low to floor, it was not worth the cost of that feature, to me.

CORRECTION TO MY POST TWO UP.

I double-checked my own picks. I was wrong.

The seat itself includes the adjustment forward and aft. The pedestal offers the swiveling feature alone. The distance between the threaded stems that pass through the adjustment rails under the seat, is an important dimension. I am sure there are also other factors. Ford E-series front swivel seats are common. They should be readily available and also affordable.
