With an almost endless number of options on the table, knowing what conversion van seats and beds to add to your camper van is a priority. Let the Sherwood Campers experts guide your decision
Potentially the single most important factor in whether you enjoy your break away or not, choosing the right seats and beds for your camper van is rarely straightforward. With so many different options on the table, a few things need to be considered before putting money down on new seats and beds.
Primarily, safety and ergonomics is the key factor to consider. While cheaper may seem better, being comfortable in your camper van is more important in the long run. That larger price tag won’t make a difference when you’re snug and dozing safely in your camper van. The same goes for seats. Campervan trips usually require long periods of driving, so you need to make sure your seats are comfortable to sit in for long periods of time as well as safe.
Factors to consider when choosing conversion van seats and beds
Price is regularly the first consideration when looking to replace beds and seats. While it’s important to stay within your budget (especially if you’re upgrading the rest of your campervan at the same time), choosing the right beds and seats affects almost every aspect of your adventure away. Consider holding off on a cheap purchase if you can push the budget a little further, as the more expensive options give more than just a good night’s sleep.
Safety in the event of an accident on the roads is the biggest consideration. Many campervan seat manufacturers don’t have to go through crash safety tests and choose not to lower their cost, which is why it’s extremely important that you purchase yours from a manufacturer that states that they have been through tests and put your safety as a priority. Generally, these will come at a higher price, but to get the added assurance of safety is priceless.
The importance of comfort cannot be underestimated. We’d always recommend you make comfort your top priority when choosing which beds and seats. If you can’t rest due to an unsupportive bed, or find long periods of driving or sitting to be uncomfortable, you’ll quickly become irritated. Putting more money towards quality beds and seats leads to better temperature control, softer and more supportive mattresses and, ultimately, a more comfortable trip.
Space is also important when choosing your beds and seats. Thankfully, modern campervan seat and bed manufacturers offer innovative space-saving solutions to this, with more adaptability usually coming in at a higher cost. Having room for extra luggage, the ability to remove or adapt the seats for multiple purposes, or the chance to clear space when you’ve arrived are all serious considerations when purchasing seats and beds.
