There ae several companies that sell swivel adapters for the Sprinter van. I believe they are made in Europe and imported. I do not know if they are legal, however.

I am assuming that the seats you are talking about are the factory installed seats. If so, the swivels would work. You must keep in mind that if you put the swivels on, they will raise the seats a bit, and will interfere with a battery if you have one under the passenger seat. If the battery is a sprial type, you can just turn it on its side.

You can find them at I have never bought anything from them, so I can not vouch for them.

Interstate interior question

My husband & I have owned our Interstate only since July 2006. We are searching for a cover that will fit the 2-burner Seaward gas cooktop to give us some extra counter space. The company does not offer a cover (liability issues according to their sales rep). Has anyone found anything that will work? All the covers (both metal and wooden cutting board types) I've found so far are too large.

Thanks for any help.

If you or someone you know are handy with woodworking tools, it would be easy to cut a wood one down and dress it up.

I doubt the sales rep knows what he is talking about. Several manufacturers have two burner units with covers. Leisure Travel Vans has a good one that is hinged and flips up to act as a side splash block. My Pleasure-Way doesn't have a cover and I am thinking about making one. I also thought maybe a rectangular pizza tray might work.

Upscale Automotive now offers swivel adapters for the stock seats, but mentions there may be a clearance problem with some house battery configurations. We switched to an AGM battery in our Interstate and had to lay it on an angle to get it in so we couldn't make that conversion. Be sure to check your clearance and take battery replacement into consideration.

My wife found a 24x18 acrylic counter protector (cutting board with counter lip) at Stacks and Stacks. I made supports for the other three sides out of standard 2x2 material and it covered the stove perfectly. Cost was about $25. We store it in the closet while traveling.
