Great service and Swivel work a treat.

Great service from Kiravans, very quick and kept me informed well. I collected from their depot.
I bought this swivel because (they were on sale!) of the stack height primarily, seemingly being the lowest on the market. The video shows the drivers side one coming with an extra peice to raise it up to clear the hand brake on a VW, but mine didn't come with this peice. That didn't matter to me (and I wasn't going to use it any way) because I don't have a hand brake on my 2014 Viano. The pivot point is also offset, which I didn't know as the description states central. Thats why I have only given four stars.
I actually bought 2 of these and have used the second one for the passenger seat and fitted it backwards. It means that the seat rotates the oppsite way to the drivers but it works fine* and it keeps both the levers in the centre of the vehicle.
I had to re-route the electrics under the drivers seat a lttle bit so they didn't foul the swivel plate, but that was simple enough, passenger side just fed through the hole in the middle.
All in all our seats now turn round, so we can face the kids while eating fish and chips!!

*It does need a little bit fiddling with seat postition, but I think most do any way.

Thanks for the review Adam. My apologies. I can confirm that this product is an offset swivel. We are updating the product page to correct this. Glad you were still happy with it regardless and thanks for highlighting our error. I hope this product gives you many years of enjoying Fish and Chips with the kids.

Vito / Viano W639 (2004-2014) Single Seat Swivel RIB - Passenger

Watched the instillation video, then fitted the seat swivel in less than 15 minutes, The swivel seat is very well made and all the holes pair up perfect.
Arrived next day.

Very,very impressed thanks

Excellent service from Kiravans

Arrived v quickly, well wrapped in proper strong packaging. (It is heavy piece of kit). Installation was a breeze. (2006 Viano). Just needed to make sure to route electric cables (seat heating etc) through the centre hole and making sure they had sufficient play. This involved moving them cables and (re) zip tying them. The whole thing took about 45 mins. You don't get 180 degree swivel because of the sink unit but makes van much more useable. Highly recommend.

To clarify, the seat does swivel 180 degrees, but obviously not if there is furniture behind the seat. Thanks for the review Andrew.

Great product and service

I'd recommend both this product and dealing with Kiravans. Prompt delivery and well packaged, this swivel base has really made a difference to the side conversion on our 2009 Vito.


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. 

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.

Notes on fitting:

Please note on some vans it appears that the plastic handbrake covering rubs on the swivel and may need to be removed.
