Auto-Trail Grande Frontier motorhome



Auto-Trail has a brand-new A-Class range for the 2021 season — the Grande Frontier.

Stunning from every angle, the Grande Frontier range features dynamic external graphics, purposeful front grille and high-level electric coach mirrors.

The Grande Frontier delivers a sleek yet bold aesthetic, complete with LED external lighting including headlamps, daytime running lights and an innovatively detailed Auto-Trail puddle light on the driver’s door as standard.

There are three models in the Grande Frontier range, all of them four-berths.

The most compact model in the range is the GF-70, which is just 6.96m in length.

Here, there are face-to-face sofas in the lounge, and an end washroom. There is a large drop-down double bed over the cab, and further sleeping capacity when the sofas in the lounge are converted. There are two travel seats, with an option to increase this to four if required.

Next up is the GF-80, which is 8.07m in length. Again, there is a drop-down double bed over the cab but the star feature is the large island bed to the rear, which has storage around it.

With a washbasin and toilet in one corner of this area and a separate shower in the other, this has the feel of a luxury en suite-style bedroom.

That island bed and bathroom design is replicated in the third member of the Grande Frontier family, the GF-88, which is 8.80m in length.

All models feature a wraparound soft-touch integrated dashboard, complete with LCD Zenec touchscreen head unit which includes motorhome-specific navigation, media entertainment, smartphone connectivity and the new selectable rear
view camera as standard.

Ambient internal lighting will provide you with a calming atmosphere and the sophisticated soft-touch upholstery and captain swivel chairs will allow you to relax in comfort and style.

Full control of your interior environment is achieved with the Alde hydronic heating system as standard.

Every Grande Frontier is also fitted with the new powerful and portable WiFi as standard and features an integrated media centre, incorporating table storage, illuminated entrance handle and a new 21.5in Avtex smart TV.
