    Hi, newbie to MotorhomeFun, have purchased a 2001 Peugeot boxer 17 seat minibus which i intend to convert, it at present has a double passenger seat up front & I would like to install swivel driver/passenger seats, my real question is where to obtain the passenger seat base/box as at present the double passenger seat is bolted direct to the floor

    Sorry if this topic has been discussed before :Doh:

    Hopefully one of you kind chaps can help

    Hi and welcome :thumb:cheapest thing to do is find some car swivel seats from a scrappy or eBay--kia sedona, renault espace are two that spring to mind.The complete seats will work out cheaper than buying universal swivel bases . It's then a case of fitting them in your bus.
    you can buy double seat swivels but most use singles:Smile:

    Cheers for reply Terry, I'm currently watching seats on eBay but as I'm removing the double passenger seat to replace with a single swivel all the seats ive seen don't seem to come with a base so will require a new base unit otherwise the missus will be staring at the dash :Laughing:

    Welcome
    Would a drivers seat from the same model fit

    Not sure myself but are the bolt holes for left hand drive and right hand drive
    Not the same
    Or try a check of a French vehicle dismantler ( scrap- yard )
