Just wondered if you drilled through to the bottom with the holes for the Rivnuts. If so did you cover or protect the outside for corrosion.
I used a zinc chromate based spray paint on the holes that went through to the exterior. You need good ventilation and/or a proper protective mask with zinc chromate- its not what you want to be inhaling.Just wondered if you drilled through to the bottom with the holes for the Rivnuts.

Bill- I spent almost 3 months trying to get a local upfitter to order a Scopema seat/bed. After checking with him almost weekly and hearing a litany of excuses concerning his schedule and problems with the North American distributor (based in Canada and somewhat active on this forum), I gave up and designed my own setup. I don't have it done yet, perhaps in the next few weeks.Sorry to be annoying, but looking through your thread, I couldn't find a reference to the seat/ bed you used.
Thanks please advise
After completing the interior preliminaries in our 2016 cargo I looked for a bench seat/bed unit as a base for the rest of the interior installation. Like RansomRidge I had no success finding a suitable European seat option available to me. Stateside upfitters would not sell me a unit unless they installed them and I couldn't find anyone to ship from overseas. I see now Sprinter converters are getting units shipped from Europe but at a very steep price. This was disappointing since I like the clean look and engineering that these seats have. So it was either fabricate a rock and roll type unit or go with an alternative I found on craigslist for $250 similar to this one. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Regency-20...erts-to-Bed-/263736781186?hash=item3d67efe982Sorry to be annoying, but looking through your thread, I couldn't find a reference to the seat/ bed you used.

Thank you for the comment.That's a great idea Mikit. Your attention to detail and craftsmanship is truly impressive!
Would you post a few pics of how you're securing the seat to the floor track?
Bob,Nice tripods and monopod! Are you photographing or filming?
And, your set up is one of the nicest I have ever seen.
This is the hardware I used for the cabinets and drawers shown in the included photos. For the drawer under the seat I used blum full extension undermount drawer slides with locking devises. Good for 100lbs allows heavy equipment to be stored. https://www.build.com/blum-563h5330b/s869746?uid=2221277I like your drawer hardware. I have been lookign for reasonably priced stuff like that!
Care to share the specs?
Negative. It's buried below my bed and behind the cabinet for my fridge, so I can’t easily take a photo.
Hey, did you ever shorten your Travois bed seat? I bought a used metris that has the Travois Rnr seat in it and it’s so high that I can’t sit in the back without the top popped...Hello,
Well, after lots of thought and internal angst over spending $6000 to buy new seats for the metris , I finally put the hammer down last spring and bought the Scopema seat 54” wide bed ,The 2 swivel seats, and slider windows for the middle doors. I track to Montreal to have the work done, and made it into a an excursion. The people at Travois were most accommodating, and the work was done in a day and a half.
Probably because I never sit in the back, or rarely, I never noticed that the seat was rather high. The floor to the top of the passenger seats is about 14 inches, while the floor to seat on the scopema bed/seat is almost 22 inches. I’ve contacted a local mechanic who can knock off several inches and re-weld the seat. Does anybody have any experience with this? Or an alternative method of shortening the height?
I looked at several possible “cuts” to shorten the height,, all involved other mods I wasn’t ready to do ( cutting into the plastic side wall , ) so I didn’tHey, did you ever shorten your Travois bed seat?
