Default 2009 Explorer Seat parts

Hi, I am looking for Explorer conversion van seat parts.

Looking for the floor latch assembly or a seat to scavenge it from.

Also looking to make two of the seats in the van swivel seats. I have looked around and seen some generic plates with abysmally small center hardware. Looking for some good stuff, perhaps I can get a few tips on where to look?

Are there any RV junk yards that are recommended near Easton PA?


Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

There are Xplorer class b's, but they stopped making those almost 20 years ago. Then there are Explorer luxury vans like this that are nice, but not actually campers. Is this what you refer to? If so, you might contact the factory for parts.

I pulled the seats in my Chev based Pleasure Way to replace the seat foam


the swivel on mine has a center section ( bearing plate) about 5" across



you can compare that to what you are seeing

It seems like there is no place on the internet to discuss Explorer conversion vans and their quirks. Thanks for all the info.

The swivel seats I did figure out to just get a new adapter with a flat large diameter Teflon bearing and multiple bolts holding it together.
