upgraded captain chairs


I am wondering what advice people have for upgrading Sprinter captain's chairs. We bought our 2007 Sprinter as a cargo van and had Sportsmobile customize it, but the driver/passenger seats are the original vinyl/cloth seats. Also, we've never really cared for SMB's swivels - very sharp metal edges and hard to use [I think they have since gotten some better ones in] so we'll probably replace those too, if we can find an upgrade.

Found a site called '' that appears to have some drop-in upgrades, but thought I would see if anybody on the forum has any advice.

Thanks, Vic

Re: upgraded captain chairs

I wanted to do the same thing to my 2007 Sprinter. Problem is all the electronics, air bag sensor etc. in the seat. You void the warranty and I don't know that the air bags would work. Be careful....there is no easy solution unless they have made some changes since my model year. Good luck and let us know if you find a workable solution.
