RIB VW T5/T6 single seat swivel driver

Arrived very quickly after order. YouTube video really useful to help fit. Bit fiddly but fairly easy. It does make the drivers seat higher as expected which is fine being 5’9” The cupboard behind the drivers seat restricts rotation which we knew it would but it rotates as much as we expected. You do need to fiddle about with seat and arm rest positions more than the passenger seat one due to steering wheel. We also bought the handbrake lowering kit which is essential to enable the seat to rotate. The handbrake does need to be temporarily released to rotate as the seat but this is made clear before buying on the YouTube video


Decent quality. Not too high. Foresee 4 mm room under swivel for welds and center piece.




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.

  • Seat height increase: Approx 23mm
  • Safety: European TUV safety approval


  • Swivel plate
  • Bolts to fit standard seat boxes
  • Raising shims not included:These passenger swivels are not supplied with raising shims. Drivers swivels for this van model do incorporate raising shims in order to lift the seat high enough to rotate over the handbrake, but this is unnecessary on the passenger's side. However, we do stock these as an add on item so if you intend to fit a leisure battery under the passenger seat you may find that a set of raising shims will allow you to fit a larger battery.
