EVERYTHING AROUND SEAT, BENCH AND SWIVEL CONSOLES

NEW SEATS

Vans or panel vans are usually chosen as the base vehicles for a camper van. On the second-hand market, you can find vehicles that are mostly equipped with a Double passenger seat are equipped. Does it make sense to exchange it for a single seat?

 

PRO. The single passenger seat is certainly a good deal more comfortable than the double bench seat. On long journeys, this is a noticeable argument for the exchange. In addition, you can walk out of the driver's cabin into the load compartment or living area without opening a door and remain in torrential weather in the dry.

 

CONTRA. The double bench seat allows three people to sit instead of two, provided no additional rows of seats are available to travel with the vehicle. This can be an advantage, especially for a small family. In addition, retaining the double bench seat also results in new layouts for your conversion, e.g. a continuous kitchenette behind the first row of seats. 

The typical panel vans rarely have a second row of seats. But if the seating needs are greater, a second row of seats must be retrofitted. 

Here there is the possibility of a Bench with bench seat or individual pilot seats. The seats are equipped with Isofix equipped and in accordance with all ECE requirements tested. Optionally, the second row of seats can also be mounted on rails / airliner rails to enable shifting.

Any structural alteration, including the replacement of a seat or the installation of a second row of seats, must be certified as a technical alteration by a Road Safety Centre checked and, if necessary, noted in the vehicle documents.

 

This is usually less of a problem when installing original components. With the retrofit However, the use of third-party components requires various test documents and certificates in order to be accepted by VSZ. 

 

We only retrofit with tested seats and prepare the entire Documentation for the MFK before. If you wish, we can take care of going to the office for you.

Exchange DOUBLE for original SINGLE SEAT. 

This is not a problem, as long as the manufacturer has provided a general operating permit is available. The individual seats are in great demand on the market and are priced accordingly. 

 

Exchange DOUBLE for PILOT SEAT.

As an alternative to the original manufacturer's seat, there is also a wide range of third-party suppliers who can offer your Pilot seats or individual seats have been homologated with all current vehicle models, i.e. approved according to the ECE standard. Since each country has its own documentation requirements, the specifications of the respective registration office must be observed accordingly.

For this purpose, the sleeping bench can be mounted on so-called Airliner Rails which in turn are fixed to the body floor. The floor plate must be adapted accordingly to the rail system and the seat frame.
