Let’s take a look at the collection in more detail...

A turn for the better

The Kiravans Double Seat Swivel Base is an amazing piece of kit to transform the living space in your campervan conversion!  

Designed from the simple fact that when you are spending family time in your campervan, you just don't have enough seats for everyone to sit round the table. With the double swivel, you get to keep your three seats in the front of your van, but in no time at all you can release and spin your front seats to face into the living area. Giving you plenty of space to spend time in and socialise. 

Thousands of happy customers agree that this brilliant, rattle-free van upgrade offers superb quality and great functionality for comfort and ease of use, and really helps to open up the living space while retaining all the benefits of having three belted front seats. 

 The Kiravans campervan double seat swivel bases are available for both left and right hand drive vans, so perfect for UK AND European vans and have been developed for VW T4, Trafic/Vivaro/Primastar and the Ford Transit (2006-2013).

 The Kiravans exclusive design-protected VW T5 T6 double seat swivel has passed all the requirements of TUV Deutschland. This involved 'in vehicle' pull testing and a SLED test over the water in Germany. In the UK it has passed seat belt anchorage safety tests conducted by STATUS (The Specialist Testing Facility at Manchester Met Uni) using a pull test on a specialist test rig to EC Directive 76/115/EEC as amended by 2005/41/EEC.  Most importantly, it is the only T5 double swivel seat on the market today which has been crash tested to the current EC safety regulations, with full TUV safety approval.

Big storage in a small space

Designed from the very notion that there had to be a way of gaining extra van storage without compromising on internal space. It’s really this straightforward!!!

We understand the need for valuable storage in a campervan so that is why we created the Kiravans Door Store.  

Cleverly designed to maximise your campervan storage, it utilises the empty voids in your VW T5 / T6 doors and adds incredible extra storage for all your tools, food, toys...whatever you want to use it for!

Allowing you to store big in a small space, it has three individual storage pockets that nestle into the door voids so you don’t use valuable living space and a wipe clean design so you can keep your campervan looking spick and span all year round. 

What’s more it’s also super easy to install.  Take a look at our helpful installation videos:

You can even ‘bling up’ your door store as many of our customers have with lining carpet to match the rest of their interior. See how it’s done here...

Gimme shelter

The Kiravans Railsail was created as an upgrade to the more standard, rectangular van sun awning. We wanted to design something that would provide shade from the sun but also be able to withstand a downpour and a fair bit of wind...generally offering shelter from the typical UK weather! The asymmetric shape and curved edges allow for a variety of pitching options to suit different weather conditions. Along with everything we design, it stows away neatly and is quick to erect using three telescopic poles.


No problem

The Kiravans Barn Door Awning is an exclusive design and was the original one to hit the market. 

We wanted to design a useful, weatherproof rear shelter to replicate the job that an up-and-over tailgate does.  The reason being that many used vans come to market with twin rear doors as they are more convenient for trades people than a tailgate.

Our barn door awning can be put up in about 90 seconds and is 100% waterproof, keeps the sun off and can withstand very strong winds. Ideal for cooking out the back of your van, getting changed after an activity or just relaxing with a beer!

You’re in control 

The Kiravans Campervan Electric 12v Electric Control System was created to modernise and simplify the process of wiring up the 12 volt system in your campervan. Many of the other systems available on the market were either too complex for the small van owners’ needs, or were starting to look very dated. We wanted to design a really great, competent control system that someone with no prior knowledge of 12v systems could easily get to grips with along with logical installation. Hence, the Kiravans control panel was born with a simple control panel and an easy to identify fuse distribution board.


Safety first

We devised the Certified RIB Seat Installation System Fitting Kit by Kiravans because we simply were not happy or comfortable with the fact that customers could buy a fully crash tested RIB Seat and install it in a manner that may not be safe. We recognised the need for a simple yet robust installation that had to be properly pull tested ‘in-vehicle’ to pass current safety legislation, simple to install at home and also be cost effective. 

So our design engineer came up with a solution that ticked all those boxes and it has been used in thousands of safe seat installations to date :)


Get ready...set...snooze!

Have you seen our comfortable and innovative  ‘Designed by Kiravans' RedBed - The Kids Campervan Bed, for VW T5/T6 vans? We wanted to make it  possible for you to put up and take down a sleep friendly campervan bed in a matter of minutes without any fuss...somewhere your child will love settling down in their very own happy, comfy, cosy and above all safe space...and a storage friendly design that is a must when space in a campervan is limited!

We felt that existing portable beds relied on creating a ‘stretcher’ format using a combination of poles and canvas...this could be very frustrating and time consuming to put up every night after a busy day, and also a real pain to store, when storage is already very tight. This is where the idea of the Kiravans RedBed came from… a children’s campervan bed that was speedy and simple to install, would take up less valuable storage and would cleverly utilise the Kiravans Double Seat Swivel Base.

And finally... RELAX...we’ve got your back :)
