My '04 Sprinter came with two 3-passenger seats & one 2-passenger seat. They were so heavy and clumsy to move that it was impractical, IMHO, to even try to swap them in and out - even the "smaller" 2-passenger one.

I'm sorry to say that they are gone - sold years ago.

Later, I decided that a two-passenger seat that could be installed & removed by less than 2-1/2 people would be nice, so I found a 2-passenger "middle seat" from a Volkswagen Vanagon, seat belts and all.

It was simple to install by using a couple of pre-drilled steel angle irons from the hardware store, angled over the pipe-frame bottoms of the VW seat. The seatbelts and angle irons are all held in place by bolts into the original seat mount hold-downs which are welded in the floor.

I happened to install the seat sideways behind the driver's seat but I would anticipate no problem with mounting it in a more conventional position.

Thanks ohlsonmh. I wish I could use this solution...because I would. However the Sprinter I am looking at configuring will be used to transport Students bordered at a Private High School. For insurance purposes and other legalities...I need to stay with an OEM configuration.

Thanks again for your input.
Mike

The NCV3 was introduced in 2007, and the passenger version seating configuration changed from the T1N's 10-seat (2-3-3) standard to the NCV3's 12-seat (3-3-4). The options book listed a 2-man bench as a special-order item, but when I ordered The Beast (my '08 passenger model), it wasn't available, so I'm guessing there wasn't enough demand to support it. In other words, I doubt that you'll ever see one, let alone find one for sale. Sorry.

I stopped by on SUNDAY and picked up a 2008 2 person bench seat from David. David made a special trip to open his business on Sunday for us. The price of the seat was more than we wanted but it was in good shape and the brackets were included. Highley recommend doing business with David.

How is your NCV3 configured?

I have a 2008 NCV3, and it is a 10 passenger Sprinter, with Driver, Passenger, then 3 seater, 2 seater, 3 seater. Are you saying the 2 seater bench is rare?

How are most NCV3 passenger vans configured? As a 12 seater?

The original owner said that he didn't like the four seater bench since he thought it was too narrow for each occupant. But I didn't know the two seat was special. I wish that it had two latch anchors though, and not just one.
