    Hi Phil looked at that years ago and found that the seat angles are all wrong the Doka seat is thin and straight thats why I had mine padded and covered to match the front. If you have a look at Bobs when its in at Andys Camperize made a whole new base and frame to make it match a Tristar its really nice with opening hatches to access the underseat storage I just couldn't be bothered as I store my travelling spares under the seat and no one sits in the back

    This is a set installed that Lucky Phil was talking about. It is possible if you are really keen.

    Yep, quite a bit....... ;)

    As Phil and I discussed yesterday, getting the original DOKA rear seat totally reupholstered to a more comfortable and higher standard of finish, may be a better option. :rolleyes:
