Hi all,

Has anybody got a swivel on there T5 drivers seat, in conjunction with units down the offside of the van ?. I'm just wondering how much space you need to leave behind the point were the floor changes height for the cab & the units start ?. I have seen a few pictures of conversions with swivels on the drivers seat but they look like the seat wont swivel to 180 deg. due to the units behind.

If you have any pictures of your seat facing rearwards that would really help.

Cheers

John

both my front seats swivel but neither of them go 360....passenger side swivels 180 so you can face rear but drivers side only goes 90....think you'd be struggling for leg room on the drivers side on a SWB with a regular conversion... the 90 swivel works fine though....

My drivers chair has enough room to swivel.

I still have to mess with the back to get the thing round the steering wheel though!

Check out my pictures in the SWB gallery.

If you want it to swivel 180 and have space to sit, then you will need to leave a massive gap between to seat and the start of the units. We went for the angled unit so that most of the available space was used whilst still allowing the seat to be push back and reclined a bit for taller drivers.
