Seat swivel

Excellent service from Kiravans, they couldn't have been more helpfull. The seat swivel arrived quickly, easy to fit and has really transformed my van. I would definitely recommend and would buy from this company again

Swivel seat

Allthough the swivel base fits is fairly straight forward it sits quite high and to make it rotate you elther have to pump the seat right up to rotate it or trim 25mm off the plastic seat trim

T6 Single Seat Swivel RIB - Offset Passenger

Excellent bit of kit and easy enough to install. I used the 18mm shims to raise the base above the plastic trim,
I'll be getting one for the drivers seat at some point too.

T6.1 Shuttle Passenger Seat RIB Offset Swivel

Good quality product. Despite excellent packaging the swivel release handle arrived bent, I assume due to a heavy drop? I managed to straighten and hope it’s not weakened. I chose to remove and trim the seat plastic side panels to avoid the need to elevate the seat when rotating. The seat needs to be in the appropriate position (on it’s sliders) to avoid hitting inner door panel (seat arm rest) and handbrake (seat slide handle) when rotating. Pleased with product now installed.

Steve, thanks for the review, but sorry that your lever arrived bent. Let us know if you have any problems with it. In the meantime, we have upgraded our packaging to prevent this issue.

RIB Swivel Seat Base

Nice, well engineered item, easy to fit and works very well, only thing that I had to do was trim the plastic near the operating lever with a dremel as we need to have the seat at the lowest setting. The seat swivel easily with no issues, the offset also allows the seat to be rotated without opening the passenger door. Would Recommend.

Good quality product

Easy to fit, easy to use, excellent "how to" video, all good.


Manufactured in France by Scopema, the RIB swivel plate for campervans gets lots of praise on the various forums. In our own experience, we have found these seat swivels to be very robust and rattle-free.

The offset feature of this particular swivel means that the pivot point is offset from the centre by a few centimetres towards the handbrake side of their seat. This means that the seat finishes up facing backwards a bit further from the door. The main advantage is that seats with armrests will spin around more easily. If you have a double seat swivel on the passenger side you should choose the non-offset version, otherwise, there won't be enough room for both seats to swivel backwards.

To rotate the seat, the engine must be turned off, vehicle put in gear and the handbrake released temporarily. Once the seat is facing the rear re-engage handbrake. For seats fitted with up/down height adjustment, you will find that you probably need to pump up the seat height to allow the seat to rotate without the grey plastic trim around the base catching on anything.

Product Specification

  • Seat height increase: Approx 23mm
  • Safety: European TUV safety approval


  • Swivel plate
  • Bolts to fit standard seat boxes
  • Raising shims not included: These passenger swivels are not supplied with raising shims. Drivers swivels for this van model do incorporate raising shims in order to lift the seat high enough to rotate over the handbrake, but this is unnecessary on the passenger's side. However, we do stock these as an add on item so if you intend to fit a leisure battery under the passenger seat you may find that a set of raising shims will allow you to fit a larger battery.
