Campervan Conversions – Fitting swivel bases.

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Ever had visions of owning your own campervan but never quite had enough money to fulfil the dream?
Well maybe those dreams can now become a reality by taking on a self build camper conversion. Scared? No need to be, all you need is a small selection of DIY skills and a bit of enthusiasm!

Over the coming weeks we will be adding different categories to our website for those wishing to embark on a self build campervan.

Products may not be added in the order that you wish to convert but more likely will depend on availability from our supplier, therefore the first category we have added are swivel bases.

If you have 2 front seats in your van (rather than a bench seat) then fitting seats is pretty straight forward. Simply unbolt the seat from the base, bolt the swivel plate onto the base, then bolt the seat and runners back onto the swivel plate. We find YouTube is often a great resource for help with installations.

Note that swivel bases are not universal therefore you will need to order the correct ones for your van and it’s year – we have listed all of the ones available with our supplier here.

It’s amazing the sense of achievement you’ll get from your own conversion….before you know it you’ll have the freedom to go where you want and take whatever you want with whoever you want!

Happy converting!
