A pliable lining carpet with a 4-way stretch allowing you to mould it around all the tricky areas such as the wheel arch and windows of your camper with the most ease. It is the stretchiest and easiest to use lining we offer here at Kiravans and also our most popular.
For a VW T5/T6 campervan we would recommend ordering roughly 10 metres of lining for a short wheel base van and 15 metres for a long wheel base. (That's including headliner). You will also need some high-temperature adhesive and the best formula we have found is to work on 1 can per metre length of carpet.
4-Way Stretch vs. Veltrim
Our 4-way stretch carpet lining is the easiest campervan lining to work with and it's ideal for DIY conversions. It is stretchy enough to work around all the corner and curves and therefore saves a lot of messing about trying to get cut edges to match up perfectly. Some professionals prefer Veltrim as it is thicker and more 'dense' but it does not stretch. This means that you have to cut pieces to fill curved gaps and to work around the wheel arches. It's all just a bit more hassle for a marginally better finish - but you could end up making it look worse if not done well.
Colours may vary slightly from different batches. Therefore, it is a good idea to ensure you buy enough in one go. This way you can be sure to get one complete cut from the same batch and avoid any possible variation between rolls!
