Subject:      Re: Need meaurement of position of Westy seat tracks

Crawl under the Westy and look up at the floor. There are threaded nuts welded in place for the seat rails even if the Westy did not come with the rails. There are four nuts in the space between the sliding door and the frame. These will show you where the factory seat position is.
