The difference may be the 'power seat'?
For my standard type seats, both driver and passenger, I do NOT need to open the door to swivel.
1. lower handbrake (only needed for driver side seat).
2. straighten backside seat to clear the pillar.
3. slide seat forward, unlock and swivel.
Slide forward far enough that it the front just clears the center console, the backside will then clear the door.
In our layout we definitely need use both seats each time we camp - have lunch etc.
The front seats are the only 'camper' seats and therefore we required that both could swivel.
This saves us a lot of room we would otherwise need for a secondary seating in the back.
The pictures show the seat track hitting the door. To me, both manual and power seats would have the same length seat tracks. Shortening the track would limit the amount of seat travel IMO.
@Inkog , do you have power seats?
I do have power seats, but my rail just clears in the most forward position. The seat travel on powered seats is dictated by the threaded rod as seen in @DaveInSeattle 's last posted pics. One could trim 3/4" to 1" off the rear rail for clearance without affecting travel or integrity of the mounting points. If you look at the rails they are just cut from longer stock. The through hole pattern could be off by 1". I suspect that although the rails are cut to a specific length, the hole pattern shifts in relation. So some of us have just enough clearance, and others no so much.
Got my Scopema passenger swivel this week from NomadVanz and looking at the install.
Given the cost of the swivel I'm happy to find a torque wrench to do it right, but I can't find recommended torque settings for the fasteners. Does anybody know what they use on the OEM screws?
Are you in the United States? Did you have to pay any duties to get it into the US?
