Any feedback from owners of the new Winnebago Paseo? Thank you

I read a review that indicated that the Paseo is not equipped with a swiveling driver's seat. Perhaps a Paseo owner can confirm this one way or the other.

That I know is true. Only passenger seat swivels, yes.

I've been following one of the first users--a couple that has a blog and a youtube channel, called "Muddlin' Through". YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKn...mPEfyQb_zDgqZQ

What's the reason for this? Is there a physical impediment or is it a Ford policy issue? Is there an aftermarket alternative?

It's a physical impediment - the parking brake handle is mounted to the floor just to the right of the driver seat. You can see it in the video below at about 7:28.



However, apparently at least one person was able to lower the handle on their Transit so the driver seat could swivel over it (at least when the brake was not engaged).

So it might really be a combination of physical impediment plus a reluctance to mess with the factory safety systems.

I have heard Winnebago Management say something to that effect. It is one of the reasons they do not offer additional alternators, mess with the radio/gps system, or cover the factory seats (which have built in air bags) on the Promasters. They would like to keep the original Van intact as much as possible so as not to affect Warranty and safety issues.

That may satisfy the interests of WGO, but not the coach owner that's denied this flexibility. A class B needs every square inch of creature comfort it can garner. IMO, a driver's seat that can't be swiveled in a class B when stopped is a flat out non-starter.

But then I suspect that there are a significant number of owners like me who have never swiveled the driver's seat on any of my 3 rigs.

No question, it's different strokes for different folks. How many people do you travel with?
