As the choice of continental low-profiles with a permanent bed is huge, style, substance and details come to the fore and the Hobby Premium T65 GE has plenty of good stuff in all three areas.
External styling steals a march with a subtly curved rear panel and a roof that forms a cap on top of the body from overcab to rear panel (thus increasing its resistance to water ingress). This is still a classic low-profile, but these details add a touch of élan to the look.
Step inside and the lounge adds Brit-pleasing practicality with a large floor area and a side sofa. Seating is available for up to five people and there’s dining from a big, extendable, wall-mounted table. So, no pedestal to get in the way and no L-shape-creating nearside section – many of which are narrow and more of a perch than a seat.
With two large single beds, over the large garage area, this motorhome really is a dream model for touring.
Best of all, this is the 2020 model, but with the 2019 chassis and engine, so it benefits from last years road fund licence rules.
