Westy vanagons had swivels in them. Cool! I just purchased a swivel cut out of a westy and welded it in to my bus .It is great, but i'm yet to fully utilize it- ie i haven't gone camping in it yet. The swivel was 40$ and lots of list guys have them for sale. I only put one on the passanger side and haven't made a decision on the drivers side yet- i may or may not, depending on the extra height (about 1") and other mounting issues. I may mount it but keep it lower by first removing the track, etc.

Email for more. Matthew
