Rock and Roll bed is the name given to the pull out seat/bed system; in short they are a seat which can be quickly converted into a bed. The name originated from the early Volkswagen conversions and has stuck ever since. Rock and Roll beds are now very popular and are often fitted as part of a camper or day van conversion. Our Rock and Roll beds can be fitted in a wide variety of vehicles including Volkswagen T4/T5, Vauxhall Vivaro/Renault Trafic, Mercedes Vito and Ford Transit.
Van-Formers are a listed UK distributor of Scopema RIB and SmartBeds, both leading brands and the best seat/bed systems on the market. As for colour and materials - there is a wide variety of options. Your bed can be upholstered to match any theme or design to compliment your particular conversion.

The Smart bed is a crash tested seat ideal for any van. We hold a collection of vinyl and leather colour samples that you can match to the interior of your van and have cross or plain stitch. The smartbed can be put up with a single movement by pulling the iconic red handle.
The RIB seating system is one of the best and most popular bed / seat systems on the market today. They have a slightly different design to the Smartbed and are complete with head rests. It is fully crash tested and provides 2 to 3 seating positions with integral 3 point seat belt harnesses to each position. The front and rear sections of this bed can lock in a number of angled positions increasing its flexibility. Upholstery is taken care of in the RIB factory to an extremely high standard to suit your existing vehicle upholstery and taste; other fabrics are available upon request. This seat does sit relatively high and some people may find their feet don't touch the floor.
