Swivel passenger seat Coachman Concord

I have a 2013 Coachman Concord on a Chevrolet Express 4500 frame. I would like to add an after market swivel base to passenger seat. I have researched and not been able to find. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

The clearances to the door and " B " pillar in a class C , may not be enough for a seat to rotate around , hence the rotating base parts aren't available .
I know that even with about 5" clearance to the coach wall on my class A, rotating the seats is a chore, requiring tilting the seat back forward and moving the power seat back and forth, during the rotation.

I did it on a Freightliner M2. I had to do a lot of fabrication as there was nothing that fit. For clearance you need to move the seat all the way forward and pivot the backrest forward. Then it will turn.
Turned out to be way more trouble that it was worth. Used maybe 1 time.

Our Coachmen Leprechaun has swiveling driver and passenger seats with the Ford E450 chassis. On the Coachmen website, it states swiveling seats aren't available on the models with Chevy chassis. Must be an issue with clearance on that design.

Our seats have a release handle that allows for sliding towards the center and back before rotating the seat.

So you may indeed have a problem finding any base hardware to work with your Concord.
