Default Seats

Looking to change around the seating from current custom long side benches to individual seats, or more practical bench seating.

So, I removed the MB bench seat in DW's crew and did custom bench seats along each side wall (makes into a king bed too). There's lots of room and strorage, even a porta potty and cabinet/counter and cooler area. Current seating can legally accomodate 8 people in back, four on each side.

A new granddaughter added to the clan a month ago, so now we're a family of 10 people, 6 adults, 4 kids ages 1 month, 2 yr, 4yr and 6 yrs. We have found that the side seating is not very practical for all these car seats (has tie downs but sometimes rocks side to side with oldest the child), and adults. I'd like to replace side bench seating with better "forward facing" bench or bucket seats, not Sprinter ones (way too big and bulky, take up to much space) enough to accomodate 8 seats in the back, without blocking through access too much, if this is possible.

Is there anything that might work? Anyone have some sources, place I can check, someone who ships seats, maybe has some options for me to look at?

Thanks.

I order the 2 person bench seat + frame legs linked below for my install. Poor planning because we decided not add additional seating in our final design.

Explore the website, but I would sell you mine unused one for half price. Only waist seat belts work with it (also included).

Thanks for the link!
I've thought about doing something like this. It looks like the seat sits directly onto the floor, which makes it very low. Is there a frame that the seat mounts to?
What color is yours and how much for everything? What about shipping? I would need it shipped to zip code 32507.
Just curious. This could work well for me, if it sits on a frame. It has to be higher.

I bought the leg frame set, so it's the same height as regular seats. In gray. I'll do some measuring, take photos and look into the shipping, etc. Then send a follow up PM.
