Introducing Group-Buy RIB Seats

Plan ahead, wait a little longer, save at least £220 per seat...


At Kiravans we always aim to offer an exceptional service and straightforward pricing. The straight-forward pricing bit has always been tricky with RIB seats as there are just so many options available. So every year we try to make things easier for you. Last year we started holding a wide range of seats in stock, for rapid delivery - but that's expensive, and of course, we just have to guess what to buy in.

So this year we're doing things a bit differently. This season it's all about costs, keeping them down as low as humanly possible for you. We can reduce costs by grouping your orders together with orders from other customers, we call it Group-Buying. Here's why it saves you money:


  1. Filling the trucks that come over from France: The more seats on a wagon the cheaper it gets.
  2. Ordering in volume from RIB: When placing large orders for identical seats we get a discount on the cost price.
  3. Getting the best exchange rates: When we place bigger orders, we get much better currencyenxchange rates.
  4. Reducing the cost of delivery to you: If we can deliver several seats at a time the pallet courier rates drop significantly.

What does that mean for you? Well basically if you can wait a few weeks extra for your seat you'll save over £220. That's more than a 10% saving just by planning ahead.


Here's an example...


  • Standard Simora 112cm seat without sliders from Kiravans stock: £2000 inc VAT & delivery.
  • Similar seat produced as a Made to Order job: £2070 inc VAT & delivery.
  • Similar seat produced as part of a Group-Buy order: £1850 inc VAT & delivery.


How to get the best price:


  1. place your order on this Group-Buy page. Check out the information at the top of that page about "Order by____  for Delivery on _____ ". 
  2. we will collate all the Group-Buy orders on the last day of the month and pass it to RIB. This means we get the costs as low as possible.
  3. Within 2 or 3 days we will receive confirmation of the ETA from Scopema, and we will pass that on to you.
  4. About 8 weeks later your seat will be shipped over, we'll check it and give you a call to arrange delivery on to you.

Remember: if you want an easy to install, safety tested, fitting system then simply add a Kiravans Fitting Kit to your order (linked at the bottom of this page), we'll send it right out for you.





Payment must be received and cleared by end of the month. Unpaid Group-Buy orders will be canceled on the last day of the month. Payment is either by card, PayPal, or bank transfer (just select your method at the checkout). For clarity - we will not chase payments. Unpaid orders will be automatically canceled at the end of the month.

Changes to your order cannot be made, instead please just cancel your order and place a new order. Cancellation of orders by you is accepted up to the Group-Buy cut off date, thereafter we can not cancel or amend your order.

Delivery dates are estimated on this page, based on our many years experience working with RIB, we will confirm the actual delivery date as soon as we receive confirmation from RIB, this will be a few days after our Group-Buy cut-off date.

Range of products available on Group-Buy is limited in order to ensure we get the best prices. Remember we have to order multiples of the same seat in order to get the lowest prices. If you feel that something is missing off the list please let us know.

Upholstery options on these Group-Buy RIB seats

  • Anthracite
A dark grey colour from our plain fabric range. This upholstery fabric has a soft feel and textured weave pattern.
  • Inka T5, Place
These seats are upholstered in Original VW fabrics. Patteren fabric is used in the seat insert panels while the rest of the seat and bed are covered in the appropriate OEM grey material 
  • Simora
Original VW Simora pattern fabric is used in the seat insert panels, while the remainder of the seat & bed are finished in a high quality black upholstery fabric. (We do not use the original VW black fabric as it is extremely 'hard' to the touch and does not perform well in this application.

We use original VW pattern fabric to cover the entire seat and bed, plain grey fabric is not incorporated in this particular seat - we feel that in this case the patterened fabric provides a higher quality finish.

Automotive grade black leather is used throughout the seating faces of this seat. For sleeping comfort we use a man-made suede-effect fabric (called Enduro) on the bed sides and rear cushion.
