Default removing seats in Roadtrek

Hello. I've been seeing a lot of mid-2000s and late '90s Roadtreks with three or four seats (one or two behind driver). Has anyone removed these? I'm wondering how easy they are to remove and how it looks when they are taken out...thinking could remove and add something else since we are only traveling as a couple. Thoughts?

alwechs, yes you can remove and replace. Roadtrek offered storage, armoires with folks also building, creating their own. I removed the third seat in a 05/04 190P for the first 7 of 14 years. Then replaced the seat.

Plenty of pics etc. out there with a little searching.

We have a 2008 GWV but I'm sure the seat attachment is similar. There is just the two of us (and two dogs) so no need for for two extra seats. I unbolted them and removed them. It gives us so much more room without them. I also removed the seatbelt shoulder straps so they are not left hanging there.

I removed the rear seats from my ‘07 RT RS Adventurous. Had a cabinet maker build cabinets. This is a great idea if you want some additional storage, and who doesn’t?

Default removed seat behind driver in my 2000 RT 190 V

I removed the seat behind the driver in our van, just started removing screws and seat belt bolts. Replaced with a custom home made Baltic Birch cabinet.

If it's the seat behind the front passenger seat doesn't the bottom slide forward and then lift up? The seat back might be similar, lift up?

This is what I did...

In 2012 it was a $2500 investment with a Marine Carpenter who has to build it from scratch - especially the unit behind the Passenger seat which is actually two cabinets, one with a Japanese style jigsaw arrangement of shelves & the other side holds a Medical Treatment table & some of my Medical Supplies, I lost the Utility of an extra entrance but for me the small sacrifice was worth it.

Had two large cabinets made, behind each seat - I have a huge amount of storage, far more than a 24 foot coach but it's important as I am a Full Timer & a Professional - people do not realise if I stepped out of my RV, an expensive Hotel or a Clinic.

The Armoire that Roadtrek used to sell is Mickey Mouse & much too small.

I utilize a lot of the space to where the roof curves in.

Hi!
I want to remove the 3rd chair in my 2015 RT Adventurous. Was it a DYI project? Any advice? We will have a cabinet maker put in an armoire. So advice on how that is secured would be appreciated too!
Many thanks!

It was a DIY project. Seat is removed easily and saved. Base takes a little time. You need to decide if you want cut off the floor seat belt anchor. I took the back "portable" cabinet that sits between the twin beds and cut it and the drawers down to fit the new space. Has been a wonderful mod. I have two dogs so all their walking and camping stuff is in the basket - easy to store and get to since we use it almost daily.
