Turn Day to Night with Ease – A Rock n Roll Bed for your Camper

A rock n roll bed gives you the flexibility to make the most of van life day or night. With rear seats, you can bring the kiddies along for the ride, enjoying comfortable lay-by lunches and dimly-lit dinners. And when it’s time to rest your weary head, simply pull out the 6 ft bed and snuggle up in seconds.

What is a Rock and Roll bed?

A rock n roll bed is a great way to have travelling seats and a bed in your van. Our beds are the safest on the market and the ease of use means the seat becomes a bed in a matter of seconds.

Why Choose a Rock n Roll bed?

Easy to Use

Our rock n roll beds are incredibly easy to use. When you’re ready to hit the hay at the end of a day’s exploration, simply release the heavy-duty, quick-release pins and the bed pulls out in a matter of seconds. And the gas struts make putting the bed back in the morning effortless too.

Flexibility

With a rock and roll bed, you get the best of both worlds. Comfortable, safe rear seating (with seat belts) for your travels and a 6 ft long bed to rest in at night. There’s even extra storage space hidden underneath.

Comfort

Our beds are designed to take up to 3-4 inches of top-quality foam for added comfort, day and night.

Custom Look

The finish of our rock n roll beds is completely customisable. We use high-quality vinyl in a pattern and colour of your choice, We can do fabric or a mix of the two and high quality leather. (see gallery below).

Quality Finish

Our rock n roll beds are fully powder-coated, giving them a more durable finish than standard paint. And the bed/seat unit sits on rubber buffers, so you can rest assured your van journeys won’t be interrupted by annoying rattling.

UK-made and Fully-fitted

The beds we use are made in the UK and fully fitted by us, the camper van specialists.
