Before deciding anything else, one thing was certain – the van was going to have swivel seats! Such an elegant way to optimize internal space. Without the swivels, the entire front area of the van cannot be used for chilling – unacceptable!
Swivel seats are actually just swivel adapters, and are very easy to install. Just unscrew the seat from its base, install the swivel adapter, and then install the seat on top of the adapter. The swivel mechanism then allows you to turn the seat around and to face the back of the van. Swivel adapters are van-specific, and we are really glad they were available for the Metris.
With the limited space in our small van, being able to turn the seats around has been transformational. It greatly expands our ‘living space’, allowing us to comfortably lounge, cook, and soak in the beauty of our pretty little cabin on wheels.
