March is national bed month which basically means that it’s all about the importance of good sleep.  So, now is the perfect time for you to think about why your bed should be your new best friend, whether it be in your home or out on the road in your campervan.

As we all know, sleep is incredibly important to support children’s physical and mental development. Did you know that a child actually spends around 40% of their childhood sleeping!?

Even when you’re away from home, it’s important to get a good balance of holiday fun and a good rest…. so, when the day is over, every child needs a safe and comfortable space to get a good night’s sleep.  

As many parents know… a sleep deprived child is not always a happy child, so with this in mind it’s time for your little ones to get ready, set….snooze with our genius  ‘Designed by Kiravans' RedBed - The Kids Campervan Bed, for VW T5/T6 vans.  It really is possible for you to create a sleep friendly environment for children in your camper, where they’ll love winding down in their very own happy space.


The exclusive Kiravans RedBed is a really quick and easy solution for one child to sleep very comfortably across the front seats in your campervan...so when you have a young family we find it is one of the best VW campervan accessories around.

It’s such a fun and safe sleeping environment for children that they’ll be begging to go to bed :)... obviously this doesn’t come with a Kiravans guarantee :)... but we know from our very own experience,  that children love this fun and exciting campervan bed.

Because it’s designed for children, it has many features that parents will also appreciate:

  • Quick and simple to assemble
  • A carry bag for easy storage and transport
  • Folds up easily and neatly
  • A removable cover which is machine washable at a cool temperature
  • Made from waterproof nylon which is easy to wipe clean from drinks and spills
  • Recommended for children up to around 6 years
  • A foam mattress insert (142cm Length x 41cm Width x 32mm Thickness) 
  • Strong straps and hooks to hold up the 'lee cloths' (the sturdy fabric sides that stop your child from rolling out onto the floor
  • 3 year Kiravans quality guarantee

Mike and Rob McCandless, brothers and owners of Kiravans both have young families and are always on the lookout for ways to improve family time within their campervans.

Mike comments “Family time in a campervan can sometimes be a struggle in terms of sleeping space and storage.  We felt that existing portable beds relied on creating a ‘stretcher’ format using poles and canvas...this could be time consuming to put up every night and problematic to store, when storage is already very limited. This is where the idea of the Kiravans RedBed came from… a children’s campervan bed that was very quick and simple to install, would take up less valuable storage and would cleverly utilise the Kiravans Double Seat Swivel  Base which we both have in our vans. Also, we felt it was important to create a safer sleeping environment hence the yacht-style lee cloth sides which stop children from rolling out of bed during the night”.

There’s no doubt that the Kiravans RedBed will ensure a comfortable night's sleep and it will be so much fun for your child to be cocooned in their very own bed space...you can even add some extra cushions and blankets to make it super comfy and special for them if you like.  After all, if you’re going to invest any time or money in your campervan conversion, you’ll want to make sure that your child’s sleeping space is somewhere warm and cosy and they will actually want to be! 

Take  a look at some of our customer reviews and see what they say about the Kiravans RedBed...

“The quality is spot on. Currently houses a five-year-old, and we tend to leave the seats facing forwards (we have a double swivel but find it fits better like that). Two minutes to fit, packs down even faster.”

“Extremely good idea and quality, son loves sleeping in it and we feel better knowing he won't fall out of it.”

And finally… we want you to relax and enjoy your campervan holiday. As many of us know about travelling and camping...you can always expect the unexpected, but that’s really half the fun of it!
