LEAD TIME UPDATE AT RIB: Due to the annual shut down at RIB during August, lead times for made to order & group buy seats are now around 16-18 weeks as they catch up with orders.
RIB seats are available in a range of fabrics to match your Original Manufacturers trim.
However, the patterned VW Tasamo seat centres fabric is no longer available unfortunately.
We will confirm your seats delivery schedule within 5 days of receiving your order.
1) Select the width of RIB seat that you require
|Seat widths available||Seating positions||Common use|
|112cm||2||Most common 3/4 width seat in T5/T6 campervans|
|129cm||3||3 seater with narrow side unit in a T5/T6|
|150cm||3||Full width in a T5 panel van conversion|
2) Add a slider mechanisms if required
This is our default option and the most commonly selected option. A fixed postion seat and bed allows for permanent storage to be built in underneath and behind the seat. It allows convertors to design cupboard access and storage without having to account for variable seating positions.
The slider mechanism works much like your front seats. If you reach each beneath your knees you'll find a lever, when released this allows the seat to slide forward up to 20cm (the base frame does not move, just the cushion parts). There are three main reasons why this might be suitable for your campervan project:
a) to slide the RIB seat forward when driving
b) to bring the front and RIB seats closer together when sitting around the dinner table
c) to position the RIB seat 20cm further back in the van during day time to give greater floor space in the middle of the van, but then slide it forward 20cm at night time to make up the flat bed. (see the photos above for examples of this layout)
d) if you are using the rotated cab seats to form part of your bed then the sliders allow much more flexibility in the positioning of your RIB seats.
3) Add ISOFIX fittings if required
4) Select fabric to match your cab seats
Unless specifically mentioned in the table below we will arrange the fabric as follows:
- Pattern fabric on the seat insert panels
- Plain fabric on the main seat body, headrest, bed and second back (the parcel shelf)
Original VW pattern fabric in the seat insert panels while the rest of the seat and bed are covered in the lighter grey OEM material
|Inka T4||Original VW pattern fabric in the seat insert panels while the rest of the seat and bed are covered in the lighter grey OEM material|
|***Tasamo||Original VW dark grey fabric all over. Unfortunately the patterned VW Tassamo fabric is no longer available.|
|Place||Original VW grey pattern fabric (with horizontal lines and colour block) in the seat insert panels while the rest of the seat and bed are covered in the lighter grey OEM material|
|Simora||Original VW Simora pattern fabric 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.|
|Austin||Original VW pattern fabric covers 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.|
