Rib beds

 

In the world of Campervan beds, the Rib bed is considered the market leader. Designed and manufactured in France they are designed to be used as a seat whilst camping or driving, with Isofix and seatbelts. Then at night, they are designed to be the comfiest campervan bed on the market. At Bearwood Campers we fit a large number of Rib beds each year and have a long list of happy customers, who are getting the benefit of the extra comfort the Rib bed gives as both a seat and a bed.

Bearwood Campers are proud to be approved and accredited fitters for the new Glide Motion Rail System for Ribs beds in Leicestershire and the Midlands. The fantastic Glide Motion system works on the 112cm, 120xl or 150cm RIB Altair Seat. It has been designed and developed by the experienced team at UK Camper Seating, and is certificated M1 pull tested in conjunction with the RIB Altair 112cm / 150cm seat design.

 

The Glidemotion rails and housing enable the Rib seat to move smoothly through the full length of the campervan. With 5 or 6 locking points the Glide motion Rib rail system gives a high level of flexibility for where to fix your seat. It is perfect if you have small children that you want to ride closer to the front of your campervan, or if you have a large amount of camping equipment to fit into the rear of the van from time to time.

After several years of looking for a Rib bed on rails system that met all the safety requirements whilst being light and simple to move whilst not breaking the bank, we have loved installing the Glide motion rails as our Rib bed on rails system. There is also the added bonus of the shortened Rib frame from UK Campervan Seating which solves the problem of Rib beds on rails not being suitable for people over 5ft 8inch.
