Yes, I had seen one done in a Devon Bambino hijetc camper conversion. Only just enough room and dont know if the standard seat needed converting as well.

Check out https://woodkali.wordpress.com/. He has swivel seats, as well as some other VERY cool things in his Hijet camper conversion.

About his swivel seats he says (Google translation):
No, but now let's face it, I look at all these recreational vehicles and ask me at once what if you could turn the passenger seat with us?

So I build the passenger seat, looking at the rails which the seat can be adjusted forward and backward, bending two barriers around so I can pull the seat forward from its guide rails, turn it around and eventually bring him back. After a little practice, turning the seat takes about 30 seconds and I've seriously before the web rotary consoles for up to € 300 considered that probably would anyway not fitted. We made a pad in the appropriate size, which can be stowed under the bed during the journey and was finished a maximum space savings.

The swiveling passenger seat allows even more comfortable seats for two to four people in the car and extends the lying surface by about 40cm to 2,20m luxurious.

Important Information: The seat-locking mechanism works perfectly despite removal of barriers.

Seems he just takes out the chairs and puts a rotating disc whenever he parks to camp. Don't know if you can use it as a guide. The guy's also on this forum by the way! He's not active but maybe he gets a notification if you send him a PM. Click here to do so.

I reckon doing away with the rear stop and just popping the seat out and back in the other way is the way to go, not a lot of swivel room in a Hijet?

I know it is a bit complicated if you don’t understand the language, but let me help you. It is exactly the same way like Logi and Scotia do it. First screw off the seat, cute down the rear stops inside of the seat rail and remove the rolls. Put it all together as previously and it is ready to turn. Loosen the lock of the engine cowling, raise it a little bit and pull out the seat. Turn it and push it back in. Ready!

Hope it is understandable. Sorry for the bad language but writing a text is much more difficult than talking.
