Seat swap?

Postby Erubus » Mon Jan 25, 2021 9:01 pm

My van came with a quick removable/adjustable three seat bench in the back. As I don't need them and I am doing a camper conversion anyway I was wondering if anyone would fancy swapping for a single front seat with base. (preferably a proper passenger one but I'm realistic about the prospect of getting one of those!)

Ill post pics up next time I'm down at the big workshop.

Sorry thought you was after just the base, single passenger seat is like hens teeth

Haha, yeah I have come to that conclusion, so happy enough with a driver's seat..,... but..... Proper passenger one would be better for my ears (OH would be sat in it and would moan relentlessly about the armrest being on the wrong side!) But yeah, I'm realistic about the chance of getting one.

Common swap is ford Galaxy /seat Alhambra/vw sharan as they have swivel bases and quit comfortable, i got 2. Older vw transporter seats about 5 yrs ago for £60 and was fairly easy to adapt with some angle iron , bit worn oot now but still do the job, loads of captains seats on ebayImage

Funny you should post that, I've been watching lots of van conversion videos on YouTube to get some inspiration and I saw a renault trafic that had galaxy seats fitted so I was actually looking for them before I saw your post. Look a lot more comfortable than the transit seats (especially the passenger bench) and probably easier to come by in scrappys as well.

Looks super nice, well done.
I have a 2016 Ford Transit 350 and am currently looking to replace the double passenger seat in the front with a single seat.
Now I was wondering if
* also a seat from a 2013 Ford Transit 350 or,
* even a seat from a different Ford Transit, for example from a Connect
could be installed?

Thanks and best,
Stefan
