class C cab feet area too close to engine cover

When I try to swing my feet between the drivers seat base and the engine cover, it's really a struggle to get into the rear area. The main problem is the area under the seat on the right front corner. Would it be possible to notch out some of the base at the front right to give more area for my heels so my feet could swing through that area to the side?

I wouldn't just in case you ever got into a vehicle accident, the driver seat safety might be compromised.

Just wanted to let you know that you're not the only one that is frustrated! I have to move the seat all the way back to get through.

Unfortunately that cover you want to cut into is a cover for the engine so if you notch it you'll be cutting right into the engine area. Afraid it's the nature of the beast. I have the same problem with my rig.

Such is the case with all the little c's I have seen. I couldn't believe how cramped the driving position was when I tested one (I'm 6ft).

Not the engine cover

I want to cut out the corner of the drivers seat base. With the seat all the way back I have to wiggle my feet through the slot between the seat base frame and the engine cover, sometimes I have to lift my feet over the engine cover, it's a real PIA.

IMO that sounds doable. It's such a pain for us that we've taken to using the door as much as possible.

Swivel seat base

maybe I misunderstood but when I purchased my "C" I asked about swivel seat base. The rep said that it would not work do to the elevated rear floor behind the chairs.

I don't care about turning the chair. I just need the open area to allow my feet room to slide between the hump and the seat base, with the pedistol mount, the front area under the seat is open with that type of mount allowing room to slide my feet through. ( I hope)
