We would really prefer to be able to remove these chairs to enable us to travel with pets and store more stuff. The dealer is adamant that the chairs are removable without a problem, but the owners' manual does not indicate that this would be the case. Has anyone removed these chairs themselves or heard of anyone that has? Does removal leave holes in the floor where the bolts were? I've read a few threads about the chairs being removable on the Interstate, but not sure how similar those may be to the Avenue.
Thank you SO MUCH for any information about this, it is appreciated. Looking forward to participating in this forum quite a bit in the future!
Since 2014, we owned and sold seven of the eight nine passenger lounges purchased. All identical black interior and exterior.
To answer your question, of course you will have holes :-)
Remove the seats it’s pretty straightforward… Two of our van buyers (2015, 2016) removed the second row seats and replace them with dog kennels… Reusing the floor holes as they bolted the kennels stationary. Both owners still have the unit, and I really happy with the set up of dog kennels just behind the front row seats.
