And the winner is...
... the Rapido 640
See why the Rapido 640 has been crowned Motorhome of the Year 2014:
Deciding on our Motorhome of the Year is always a difficult task, but this year it proved even more of a dilemma – the levels of choice and innovation were staggering.
However after all the deliberation, our judges crowned the Rapido 640 as the worthy winner of the Motorhome of the Year 2014.
The Rapido 640 is our winner in part, because it fits so much into a package that’s under six-and-a-half metres long. This motorhome also includes one of the latest and greatest fixed bed designs – the corner island double – combining the space saving of a French bed layout with the easy-access of an island bed design.
The compact kitchen stands transversely in the middle of the ’van – another radical space-saving design – but still manages to include a big fridge/freezer and oven.
Other highlights include a cosy lounge, separate bedroom, good-sized shower, and a clever sliding storage cupboard above a versatile vanity unit that includes the washbasin. Storage for large items is good too, with a big locker beneath the bed.
Peter Vaughan, Which Motorhome Editor and MMM Road Test Editor, said: “The Rapido 640 offers a truly all-new layout in a high-quality package, with a wide choice of décor and plentiful storage, making it a fabulous all-rounder – and a worthy recipient of the Motorhome of the Year title."
