5 seats in California Ocean or Coast.

We are considering to buy a 5 seated Ocean.
Is it easy to buy/find and install an extra seat on a 4 seated model?
Is it easy to take it in and out?
We are aware that it has to go out of the van, in case you want to instaal the bed.

If it has 3 seat rails it’s Easy, just buy any California / Caravell seat and it should fit.
Fitting a third rail is a lot more work hassle

They are heavy. Heavier than you think.
I can manage on my own but I regret it every time I do

I ordered the 5th seat and fitting from new. I wanted the 5th seat just in case as without it you only have a four seater (for insurance purposes) I took it out on day one December 20 with the intention of occasional use. So far it remains wrapped in the garage.

The 5th seat is heavy and awkward (two person job) to get in and out (10minutes)

however … better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it (Confucian )
