That is why we bought a class c Mercedes sprinter. Lots of leg room. The passenger side of the Fords only allow room enought for a one-legged person. The Chevrolet one had more room then the Ford, but are hard to find.

Really not that big a deal

When I first bought my Greyhawk, I thought that the positioning was a real Pain in the butt. Like many others I have to put my seat all the way back to swing my feet through.

Now a year on the road and 8000 miles on the Odometer... I have come to recognize that the number of times I need to move straight from the cab to the coach is so minimal that it is not worth stressing about. I actually built a platform in that area that houses our plug in cooler Figured if I am not going to pass through the space I might as well make use of it.

You are welcome to notch whatever you wish in your own motorhome - so it's probably possible. But there's no way I'd take the risk of altering something as engineered for safety as a seat.

There's no way I'd purchase a motorhome with that mod either.
Just my two cents.

We left a Chevy based Class C, where the room was small but doable. I too am frustrated by the Ford Chassis. I have to slide the seat all the way or go outside.

I am looking at the same idea with the motorized base. should work fine with a little finesse!

I looked at my base again, it looks like you could weld pieces on the bottom of the base at the base bolt tabs and move the whole base back with different holes in the pieces I welded on. It would still allow the seat to move forward enough on the slide but move the base back about 1 1/2 " and give more foot room to slide your feet toward the side to enter the house area
