Our team of experts at 8 Ball Camper Conversions recommend the Scopema RIB seat/bed.

The RIB seat has become one of the most popular fold down beds in Europe, and in our opinion it is the safest and most comfortable way of having seating and a bed in your campervan. The bed is available in 3 different widths and has a large selection of upgrades available, including isofix points and armrests.

The Rib bed has been fully tested and this is one of the main reasons we fit it.


Main Features Include:

  • Fully tested and certificated to M1 and EU safety standards.
  • Contoured seat squabs, making it very comfortable to sit on (unlike most Rock n’ Roll beds which have a simple flat foam base).
  • Adjustable head restraints.
  • 3- point seatbelts with ISO Fix child fixing available.
  • Flat, supportive sleeping surface for a great night’s sleep.
  • Seat locks in ‘up’ position.
  • Rear section can be left horizontal or folded up as required.
  • High quality foam throughout.
  • Simple operation to convert from seat to bed.
  • Lots of space underneath for storage.
  • Steel Frame – Super strong.
  • Option for a longer rear cushion for those who want a longer bed

The RIB seat is imported from France and boasts an excellent design offering comfort for those long trips around Europe. Your rear passengers will travel in complete comfort & style, with the knowledge that in the event of a road traffic collision they are sitting on a seat that meets EU requirements in terms of safety.

The RIB is offered in three size variations from 8 Ball Camper Conversions; 112cm, 129cm & 150cm. Each RIB seat unfolds to provide you with a fully flat and comfortable sleeping surface within your VW conversion. A variety of upholstery options is available from standard VW material to Alcantara or custom embossed leather; the choice is yours.

Although the majority of vans we build use fixed seats, we are able to offer the RIB seat with a sliding base, offering  even more versatility & practicality; Creating a larger boot space, bringing rear passengers closer to the front of the vehicle, allowing room for a Chairpod to be installed on the tailgate or for a longer rear cushion.
