Hi
I am building out the interior of a troopy. I have been intrigued by the question of front seats. I need to replace the stock seats anyway and am thinking about options.
I am struggling with the 1,000 pound price for each new recaro.
So i was also wondering if anyone has ever thought about or seen someone else put in a swivel / captain's chair in the front?
I know its quite tight in there and its not like a Sprinter van where it works super well.
I thought is might be useful at least on one side in the front, to increase flexibility for the times when we are inside sheltering from the weather.
All ideas welcome.
cheers

Thanks Wout. Were those comfortable on long trips?
and I assume you had to change the seat runners on the floor? But they otherwise do fit well?
cheers
