2nd row bench compatible with 2005 Dodge Caravan

Asked by Oct 25, 2014 at 08:04 PM about the 2005 Dodge Caravan SE

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan with a 2-passenger 2nd row bench; the floor has grooves
for a 3-passenger bench. All the 3-seat benches ones I've seen for the Dodge
Caravan, though, are a single back. I'd like instead to get the kind where the middle
folds down separately.

Is it possible, then, to get such a seat assembly for a different make or model, and
have it fit my car? If so, what other makes/models can I look at?

Ok stay with me here. The 3 person rear seat will fit in the 2nd row. You can buy another seat for the rear to have seating for 8. The drawback is trying to get into the 3rd row with the 3 seat wide bench in the 2nd row. Not enough room to squeeze by the 2nd row bench. They do make bucket seats that will fit in place of the 2nd row bench. The vans that will fit your Caravan will be a Chrysler town and country and Plymouth/Chrysler Voyager.

Thanks, TransAm. What you said about getting into the 3rd row is exactly the problem I'm trying to address - to get seating for 8 while still being able to get in and out of the back relatively easily. It's good to know they make bucket seats - thanks - but what I really am looking for is a bench where the middle folds down. But thanks also for the pointers to the other makes/models; I'll see what there is for those.

They don't make a bench for the middle row that does that. Most mini vans are just 7 passenger. Your welcome for the help.

The answer from TransAm77 is not completely exact. In fact, depending on the model year, various seats were available and were interchangeable 2nd and 3rd row for the most part. The ideal is to get the optional 50/50 3rd row bench from a scrap yard and put it in the 2nd row. It comes with the seat belt, allows access to the 3rd row by folding one of the halves and effectively turn the Caravan into an 8 passenger.
