Non-Fixed Bed Motorhome
of the Year

 
   


In association with The Caravan Club logo

And the winner is...
... the Chausson 610 Flash (Ford Transit)

 

See why the Chausson 610 Flash is the Non-Fixed Bed Motorhome of the Year and the overall winner of Motorhome of the Year 2015




This category is one of the most open as, aside from the obvious requirement to have no permanent fixed beds, the rest is a no-holds-barred situation. This means lounge-based ’vans dominate, but A-classes and others, with their drop-down double beds were still very much in the frame to gain an Awards gong.

  • The 610 starts with a superb choice of specification – our winner is on Ford’s superb new Transit, but you can have it on the Fiat Ducato too
  • The kitchen is spacious, with big drawers and a fridge/freezer. The three-burner hob and sink – both with glass lids – take up quite a lot of the worktop, but you can always use that large lounge table.
  • The washroom, which, in spite of this motorhome’s near entry-level status, is best described as magnificent. Vast amounts of floor-space and a true class-leading separate shower are both surprising and impressive.
  • Ford’s latest Transit is lovely to drive, with a beautiful cab environment and excellent driver ergonomics, especially for shorter people.

Winner: Chausson 610 Flash (Ford Transit)
