Excellent product, very easy to fit and quickly delivered. The YouTube video for fitting was also very helpful.
Great product and excellent customer service

Single swivel base (RHD)

Awesome well made and well designed product. However! Please note this seat will only rotate if your passenger seat is a single or a double swivel passenger seat on 50% swivel (90 degrees). I assumed I would be able to rotate my new drivers swivel seat on it own. Luckily I already had the kiravan double passenger swivel fitted. So just means I now have to put that on swivel if I want to just swivel my drivers. But its a lot of work and effort. So I will probably just change the passenger to a single now. So product is amazing. But just wished I’d seen some info on this before purchasing. Thanks again Kirivans looking forward to more amazing products you are going from strength to strength.

Sear swivel plates

I bought & DIY fitted a passenger & driver seat swivels to our 63 plate Caravelle. Great improvement to the functionality of our camper. Great support from Kiravans & excellent fitting video.

Ron single seat Swivel

This product was very easy to fit after watching the you tube video. It is extremely well made/engineered and just dropped straight into position with no need for adjustment to align onto the bolts. After fitting I did experience some squeaking when driving and have seen other comments about this. I resolved this by applying Vaseline to the eight cotton reel style rollers that contact when the seat is put in the drivers position. Also I am not sure if the seat now drops down fully as the seat trim now lowers onto the swivel seat leaver arm and the trim bends outwards. I will look at slotting out the side of the seat trim to resolve this. The product arrived very quickly and overall I am very pleased with this purchase.

RIB Drivers non offset swivel base

Great seat base, well engineered and easy to fit, easy to use and turning is not an issue, I have to straighten the back and push the steering wheel in, after a couple of go's you get the hang of it. I'm 5ft 6 and its just low enough for me to use comfortably, but my wife a 5ft 1 will struggle. I'm now planning to take off the spacers and lower the handbrake to accommodate.


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. If you have a plastic handbrake cover then you may have to remove it and replace with our fabric slip-on cover.
