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.
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:
This swivel fits between the sliders (the rear external corners of the slider rails can be cut to avoid any damage to the plastic door trim while rotating the seat if necessary) and original seat base. RIB advises that a handbrake modification is required (included) and that the battery will need to be relocated.*
It's worth noting that when fitting the handbrake mod bracket, some vans may have the original bolts welded in place. If yours does, they will need to be cut and drilled out. In order to fit, the metal bracket assembly that the handbrake gaiter fits onto on the floor must also be removed. As the handbrake cable goes through a hole in this, the bracket must be cut (or the brake cable detached).

*Jan 2020 - We have recently been informed from one of our customers that the battery does not have to be moved, but can simply be lowered a little. Although we haven't tried this ourselves, we thought it was worth mentioning... The battery sits in a plastic box on square plastic blocks. We have been told that cutting the square blocks off means the battery can be lowered about an inch, which is sufficient to fit the swivel over the top of it. (If you do decide to try this option, we'd love to know how well it works so we can pass the information on).
