This campervan bench seat and sliding bed in one and is a low cost alternative to a rock and roll bed. This is a great option for those looking to complete their self build campervan on a budget.


The Camit Design camper bench features two large storage compartments under the seats with plenty of space to house all your camping essentials. Any items kept in this area will be retained at the back of the bed when the slider is pulled out. Two latches are used to lock the seat in place to ensure it doesn't slide down into a bed while the vehicle is moving.


There is a wheel arch clearance of 335mm at the back of the bench which runs the full length of the unit. This means the bench can be placed at any point along the side of your van.


Available in 1900mm,1800mm, 1700mm and 1600mm lengths. It has a width of 750mm when in its seat position and 1300mm when pulled into a bed. The height from the floor to the top of the back rest is 765mm and the height of the seat/sleeping area is 445mm.


Made in a choice of 15mm moisture resistant MDF or 15mm Plywood. The bench seat campervan bed is supplied flat packed with all fixings and instructions required for self assembly. Our design includes furniture blocks and threaded plastic dowels embedded into the wood to ensure the joints are as strong as possible whilst still easy to put together. Our self build campervan bench bed assembles in two halves which can be screwed together if desired.


Our campervan beds are suitable for painting at home. View the gallery to see the finishes our customers have added to their beds.


The manufacturing process of moisture resistant MDF can give it a green colour. Our moisture resistant MDF products are supplied in either green or brown depending on what we have in stock at the time.


We now have a full range of mattresses available for almost all our campervan beds. Our campervan mattresses are made from 100mm thick premium grade foam and are upholstered in Charcoal coloured AquaClean fabric. AquaClean features a revolutionary technology that allows you to clean stains using only water making it great for use in campervan mattresses and sofa bed cushions. You will be sent three  cushions in the same length as your bed. 


Cushions are sent direct from the upholsterer and will be delivered separately from your bed. Cushions are made on a lead time which fluctuates throughout the year. Please see the banner at the top of the page for the current lead time time.

    Bench seat campervan bed

    Posted by Julia Harris on 5th Jun 2022

    This is a really sturdy, well thought out bench/bed. We got the one made of Birch ply which is very good quality. My partner really enjoyed putting the bed together, which was made easier by the inserts already having been inserted, although a very few were in the wrong holes. We have dilute painted ours and then varnished over with clear matt varnish and very pleased with the result. Downside is that we have a low roof. We ordered the cushions, also very good quality and well made, but when they are other bench for it to be used as a couch, it makes the seat too high - our feet are dangling off rhe floor and our heads touch the ceiling. The unit really needs to be lower height from the floor. Otherwise top marks!

    Extremely well made kit, I bought the ply version and the wood was a nice quality ply no voids and cut cleanly. It’s probably the most difficult kit in their range and a little fiddly in places. Take your time and you will be rewarded with a substantial well designed bed unit, it unfolds effortlessly and goes back to a bench again with little effort. Very pleased.

    Solid, Well Made Bed

    Posted by Tom Holder on 24th Nov 2021

    I'd echo everyone else's comments, in that it's an incredibly well made, quality bed. Particularly in the birch play. Does take a long time to put together, but the end product is well worth it. Instructions and images could be a little bit better in a few places - would probably be worth you watching the average Joe put it together to see where the sticking points are. Or do a video tutorial - that would be really helpful!

    This is a sturdy bed and ideal for our pod. We cut down 2 foam mattresses from IKEA to fit the bed.

    Hello Had my van converted last week and had one of these beds fitted. Really pleased with the quality of this bed, it is really well made with lots of storage. It also allows me to get my motorbike in the back of my Van for race weekends. Highly recommend this bed for quality and price and still having lots of space in your Van when it’s a bench seat. Thanks Dave

    This is the bed with the lift up lid. It's well made and works well, opens and shuts and extends very easily. However, it's not a simple construction, took me a weekend to assemble, being another level of difficulty to IKEA furniture! So allow for this when buying. The instruction pamphlet isn't as good as it could be, some of the pictures are unclear, but nothing that can't be overcome with some thought. An assembly video would be nice....but very pleased with the finished product.
