Love it

It was easy to assemble, I just saw the movie that kiravan has made and did the same. super easy. works really good. they were very helpful, answering questions, and sent it to me in Norway in 1 week. I'm very pleased.

Excellent Swivel

I fitted this swivel recently in minutes to the passenger side of my right hand drive T5, I have the drivers side already fitted & like the offset. There is no rocking or annoying clicking noises in the normal driving position. With a minute or two of adjusting the seat the swivel rotates with ease & makes such a difference to my parked van internal area, using the second comfiest seat to relax in. Highly recommend & Kiravans Customer Service was exceptional when I had questions to ask. I am not employed by or have anything to do with Kiravans or the swivel manufactures, just a T5 van enthusiast.


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. If you have a double seat swivel on the passenger side you should choose the non-offset version, otherwise, there won't be enough room for both seats to swivel backwards.

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. T5 only - If you have a plastic handbrake cover then you may have to remove it and replace with our fabric slip-on cover.

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.
