So you've seen dashboard trim for sale on our website or on ebay - well here's a little more information about fitting it to your Volkswagen Transporter T5 campervan.
New: the first ever double seat swivel to pass EC Regulation & Directive level safety tests. See how it works, how to fit it and discover how versatile it makes your campervan.
We designed the double seat swivel because most cars have 5 seats,
however campervans are often produced with a double seat in the back and just two singles in the front.
Four seats in total, not really enough for a family.
With the double swivel, you
keep your 3 seats in the front of your van.
The Kiravans double seat swivel has been tested to the current EC safety regulations to ensure it is a safe and secure way to carry passengers.
To fit the swivel, first take the old seat out.
There are 8 nuts holding it down to the floor
of your van.
You need to disconnect the electrical plugs which are inside the seat.
And then lift the seat out of the way,
Then re-connect the electrical wires, and slide them underneath the rubber floor in the front of your van,
There is a recess in the floor near the handbrake where it will all fit..
You need to cut off the top 5 mm of the seat mounting bolts that are sticking up from the floor.
It is easy to do that with a hacksaw or a cutting disk.
place your new swivel plates on top
of the bolts and attach with the original nuts.
Put the bench seat back on top.
An extra 8 nuts are included, to attach the seat to the floor of the van.
It is very easy, it takes only 20 minutes or so.
These will not be suitable for everybody. However they are perfect for
transporting a family in comfort and for adding to the versatility of your campervan.
You can buy a double swivel directly from Kiravans on our website kiravans.net
We also have a growing distribution network around the world who will supply and fit the swivels.
