    Currently in Oxford with Colin having 2 + 1 seats changed for 3 shuttle QR seats.. hoping this will reduce the struggle of moving the heavy doible seat as well as provide a couple more arrangement combinations.
    i.e have units in, along side the 2 single ISO fix seats...

    Being able to carry additional passengers while having long lenghts of timber (Joiner) down the middle..etc.

    Next is to find seat covers suitable for these 2nd row, fold down seats.

    Does the original 2+1 combo have isofix?

    Well, back from Oxford and I can fully recommend Colin for any seat work.
    He has done a cracking job on adding the additional floor brackets, trims and seats.

    The work is faultless, clean and swift.

    As hoped the seats work a treat and will go along way with the 'multi option' lay out thats planned.

    What is the company, and have you got any pics? I'm just 1/2 mile north of Oxford.

    Cheers just wanted to check, used the isofix as an excuse to convince the misses we needed a new van, hopefully take delivery soon enough to see if our baby seat actually fits anyway

    Cheers @Keith Fish, I work out of Witney every now and then, and have a team permanently based there. Will have to drop in and see them.

    Can the triple bench in the rear fitted to the new T6 be replaced with the 2+1 easy enough ? I know its an option these days when you spec the van out

    I assume it maybe missing some foot anchors

    I believe so yes. You'll need additional QR brackets for the feet and fitting etc
    Colin at Oxfort T5 may even PX the triple against my old 2+1

    The foot anchor pattern on the van floor are totally different, so unless its possible (but more importantly - simple) to change the mountings, then it could be a pain in the whatsit.

    It can be done but as mentioned would need additional fixings/brackets/bolts in floor to accommodate the different base.
    This would mean penetrating the van floor to install and would also mean your existing floor mat would need to be adapted/replaced as the holes would need to be in a different places

    I've also been in discussions with Colin over the past week or so trying to establish the best way forward as I'm wanting a 3rd row in my T6 highline. Glad to hear positive reviews on his workmanship.

    Yes it can and it's fairly straightforward (for us anyway!)
    You would need 4 more brackets and associated chassis brackets. In addition 2 of your existing brackets will be in the wrong place for the 2+1 seats. If you want to leave these in place to avoid holes in the flooring you will need 6 new brackets. Alternatively it's possible to replace whole floor or patch in the holes with genuine flooring.
    We can also replace the seats with the new T6 3x single kombi seats (all in one row) as mr Fish had. All seats fold flat, remove independently and all have isofix.

    Good to know that there is a well thought of conversion company in Oxfordshire - wish I'd known that a couple of months ago before I had mine done where I took it.

    @VWVC , greetings, and welcome :thumbsup:, I am in the process of having a Highline Kombi with a 2+1, thinking of changing to triple singles, does this just need 4 extra brackets and seats? Any ideas on costs involved please.
