Upgrading seats in a Freedom Elite?

We are looking at seat options for our Freedom Elite22FE. We want to buy Flex steel leather, heated seats with swivel and slide options. We are not sure what will work and what won't work. We are cutting away the back of the dinette behind the drivers side so the driver can recline or slide farther back as needed. We want the swivel for the passenger side so I can use it as an extra seat when parked, by swiveling around and facing the cabin. The Coachman had seats that did this and the cab looked the same as the FE.

Has anyone found problems with changing the seats?

Everything I have read or watched on Youtube about converting the seats to swivel said you have to open the passenger door to swivel that side and the driver side interferes with the steering wheel and back side of the bulkhead and can not swivel. Noted you are moving the bulkhead behind the driver so it might work there. If you go to youtube, search for van swivel seat, you should find some info.

We solved it with a steel plate that fits up against the rise and 3 in. Toward the center. Click image for larger version
