Hey guys can I unbolt the passenger seat & turn it so it faces backwards & bolt it back down? I want to watch TV & go camping by myself & am not ready to put a 3rd seat in,unless someone still makes a swivel seat. Thanks Jackson

I don't see why not, unless some mounting bolts locations aren't the same when you flip them.

yes you can / just unbolt it from the mount (leave that bolted to the floor) / my van, a 1990, has swivels. Im lucky to have them but either way there is enough room for the seat to turn. I had a 200 dodge that when I was camping and hanging I would just flip it.

Stevie, we turn our passenger seat around when we camp. 4 nuts, turn it and pop it back into the holes. I keep a wrench under the seat just for that purpose. Out's is a '94 and the seat belt re-tractor is not attached to the seat but to the mount.
Be aware that the factory mount leans to the rear as does the seat, so when you turn it around it'll lean down so you'll slide off into the floor if you don't have some way of raising it back to level. blush

That's a pretty good Idea. I have a swivel seat base for Black Magic but have not tried to mount it. The current seats sit on big base risers. I haven't looked into how I could get the swivel to fit. It would be a lot easier for me to undo the four bolts and turn it around. I may just try that next weekend at the vannin.

In my 92-93 chevy the seats have clips & the mounts slots are symetric in the floor ....

I did the same thing in my Safari back in the 80's....
