One of our finest products! It gives us a warm glow hearing all your stories about how the Kiravans T5 / T6 Double Swivel transforms the living space in your van without losing all the benefits of the bench seat up front.
The swivel mechanism is very different to normal single swivels. It uses a cunning slide and swivel approach so you will need to open the side door to allow the full range of movement. The seat is held securely in position while driving by 4 x specially engineered locking bolts.
The product is fully tested and we decided to protect the design (UK & EU Registered Design No. 002115790-0001) and only sell through our own website to ensure safety and quality standards are maintained.
Our 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. The TUV certificate can be downloaded below. 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. We are also an ISO 9001 approved company which ensures that these swivels are manufactured in a similarly approved facility.

Many of our EU customers have been ordering from Kiravans for years. But then Brexit happened and delivering from the UK to the EU got very messy.
The good news is that we have it sorted!
You can now purchase Kiravans campervan parts from our 2 new websites - www.kiravans.com (retail) & www.kiravans-trade.com (trade). Orders placed on these websites are fulfilled from our warehouse in the Netherlands so there are no import duties or tariffs.
Our product range is very limited at the moment but every week we are shipping stock over to our new warehouse.
Kiravans started life in 2005 as ‘Freedom Campervans’, renting out campervans in Scotland. We, Rob and Mike McCandless (brothers) combined our love of outdoor adventure with skills in Engineering and Operations Management to build a successful campervan rental company.

Gradually we got into building our own vans to add to the fleet. Pretty soon we discovered just how difficult it was to source decent campervan parts quickly and easily. We experienced the frustration of trying to find reliable suppliers, who were open about pricing and easy to deal with. The conversion parts market in the UK seemed to be a closed shop with guarded secrets and over-priced, dated looking stock.

This really got us thinking. Nobody was doing this properly for the internet age, nobody was making it easy to build a campervan! So, we embarked on a mission to simplify, de-mystify and reduce the cost of building a campervan.
From a humble shipping container full of after-market van windows to selling tens of thousands of our unique ‘Double Seat Swivel’, Kiravans has demonstrated remarkable growth to become the multi million pound enterprise it is today.

Well...not much has changed!
Sure, we have a bigger team, a load more products and a few more websites (www.kiravans.co.uk, www.kiravans.com, www.kiravans-trade.co.uk) & www.kiravans-trade.com) and rather than sell out the back of a beat up old shipping container we now use a 3rd party fulfilment house that takes good care of our warehousing and despatching our orders...but we really do like to keep things as simple and as straightforward as we possibly can.
The Kiravans warehouse today
We’re not complicated...we’re not glory seekers...we really just want to offer the best products and the best advice and services we possibly can. All we want is for our customers to be happy...because without you...there is no us.
For us, it’s not a case of just shifting products...our entire mission is to share both our products and conversion knowledge - a problem halved is a problem solved!
Because of the hurdles we faced back in the beginning, we are extremely passionate and motivated about sharing what we know...and how we deliver our knowledge really matters to us. That’s why we broke the rules and created a business that not only sells products we highly recommend, but also provides the installation information and a series of Kiravans ‘How to’ videos thrown in. We have a dedicated YouTube channel where we upload our videos, which is full of little surprises and big delights so you can ‘watch and go’.
What’s in store…
...to keep doing what we’re doing. To continue to look out for new products, new suppliers, new manufacturers, new opportunities, create and innovate, to share our knowledge and to constantly improve and evolve the business to meet the needs of our customers. That’s it! People buy from people and that’s the way we conduct our business. Our customer reviews really do say it all and we’re extremely proud of what we’ve achieved to date.
We’re extremely grateful, along with everyone else at Team Kiravans, to everyone who has supported us on our journey and look forward to plenty more years to come!
