Essential Guide to ‘Designed by Kiravans’ Campervan Products

We have an exclusive collection of ‘Designed by Kiravans’ campervan products. Designed especially for those who love to spend time travelling and relaxing in their campers.  

The idea behind this exclusive product range is simply because we saw a real need in the marketplace for good quality, well designed, value for money products that will make your campervan experience easier, slicker and more enjoyable!  A home away from home. 

Mike and Rob McCandless, brothers and owners of Kiravans both have young families and are always on the lookout for ways to improve family time within their own campervans.  They appreciate that family time in a campervan can be a struggle in terms of socialising, sleeping and that all important storage space.  So... the ‘Designed by Kiravans’ campervan collection has been developed through genuine campervanning experience.

  • Kiravans Double Seat Swivel Base

  • Kiravans VW T5 T6 Door Store (1st Edition)

  • Kiravans VW T5 T6 Rear Door Store

  • Kiravans Railsail

The Kiravans Double Seat Swivel Base is an amazing piece of kit that will instantly create more space in your campervan and it’s easy to fit as well!  Installing the swivel plate base can be done at home in a few simple steps.  

Tens of thousands of happy customers across Europe have invested in our rattle-free van upgrade because…

  • It’s easy to fit at home

  • Simple to use

  • Robust and well-made

  • Safety approved

With the double swivel, you get to keep your three seats in the front of your van, but in no time at all you can release and spin your front seats to face into the living area. Giving you plenty of space to spend time in and socialise. 

Available for both left and right hand drive vans, so perfect for UK and European vans and have been developed for VW, Citroen, Fiat, Ford, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Toyota and Vauxhall vans.

The Kiravans exclusive design-protected VW T5 T6 double seat swivel has passed all the requirements of TUV Deutschland. This involved 'in vehicle' pull testing and a SLED test over the water in Germany. In the UK it has passed seat belt anchorage safety tests conducted by STATUS (The Specialist Testing Facility at Manchester Met Uni) using a pull test on a specialist test rig to EC Directive 76/115/EEC as amended by 2005/41/EEC.  Most importantly, it is the only T5 double swivel seat on the market today which has been crash tested to the current EC safety regulations, with full TUV safety approval.

Kiravans VW T5/T6 DoorStore (1st Edition)

The Kiravans VW T5 / T6 DoorStore was designed for the very reason that there had to be a way of gaining extra van storage without compromising on internal space!

Cleverly designed to maximise your campervan storage, it utilises the empty voids in your van doors and adds incredible extra storage for all your tools, refreshments and snacks, kids toys...whatever you want to use it for!

With three individual storage pockets than nestle into the door voids so you don’t use valuable living space and a wipe clean design so you can keep your campervan looking spick and span all year round. 

What’s more it’s also super easy to install.  Take a look at our DoorStore in action and see for yourself how easy to fit and useful it is.

You can even ‘bling up’ your door store as many of our customers have with lining carpet to match the rest of their interior.  Check out our website for our full series of DoorStore ‘How to’ fitting videos.

Kiravans Railsail - Multi-pointed, Heavy-duty Campervan Awning

The Kiravans Railsail was created as an upgrade to the more standard, rectangular van sun awning. Designed to give shade from the sun but also be able to withstand a downpour and a fair bit of wind...generally offering shelter from the typical UK weather! The asymmetric shape and curved edges allow for a variety of pitching options to suit different weather conditions. Along with everything we design, it stows away neatly and is quick and easy to put up using three telescopic poles.

Kiravans Barn Door Campervan Awning 

The Kiravans Barn Door Awning is an exclusive design and was the original one to hit the market. Created to be compatible with the VW T4 (with spoiler), VW T5/T6 (with or without spoiler) and Trafic/Vivaro (up to 2013).

We wanted to create a useful, weatherproof rear shelter to replicate the job that an up-and-over tailgate does.  The reason being that many used vans come to market with twin rear doors as they are more convenient for trades people than a tailgate.

Our barn door awning can be put up in about 90 seconds and is 100% waterproof, keeps the sun off and can withstand very strong winds. Ideal for cooking out the back of your van, getting changed after an activity or just relaxing with a beer!

Kiravans RedBed - Children's Campervan Bunk Bed for the VW T5/T6

We created a comfortable and innovative Kids Campervan Bed, for VW T5/T6 vans. We knew it needed to be very quick and easy to put up and take down and be sleep friendly in a matter of minutes without any fuss...somewhere your child will love settling down in their very own happy, comfy, cosy and above all safe space.  It’s also a storage friendly design that is a must when space in a campervan is limited!

We felt that existing portable beds relied on creating a ‘stretcher’ format using a combination of poles and canvas...this could be very frustrating and time consuming to put up every night after a busy day, and also a nuisance to store when space is really tight. This is where the idea of the Kiravans RedBed came from… a children’s campervan bed that was speedy and simple to install, would take up less valuable storage and would cleverly utilise the Kiravans Double Seat Swivel Base.

Kiravans Sound Blocker 

Our very own version of the popular campervan soundproofing products offered by brands like Dynamat, Silent Coat and Noisekiller.

Sound blocker is the first step in Kiravans 4-step lining system for ultimate warmth and comfort in your campervan!

The Sound Blocker is a 2mm thick, self adhesive, sound-deadening mat and reduces vibration and resonance in the large, flat metal panels of your van’s side walls. Sound Blocker ‘deadens’ the panels and gets rid of the ‘tinny’ road noise in the back of your van as you drive along.
