And the winner is...
... the
Rapido 650FF

The category includes three types of double bed, but it’s the lengthways island variety that’s become very popular in recent years. And that’s because it’s very much like your bed at home – a conventional double, with the easy access at both sides that other types – French and transverse – don’t provide. The last few years has seen the introduction of the corner island type, which gives useful access at both sides, but allows washroom facilities to be located to located to the side, saving overall length. And that’s exactly what our winner offers – the result, a spacious interior in a motorhome that comes in at not much over six-and-a-half metres long.

  • Highlights in the L-shaped kitchen include a hob with burners, three-in-line that helps make space for some worktop, plus big drawer storage. Across the aisle there’s one of the latest tall-and-slim fridges, topped by a compact oven.
  • The lounge is best described as cosy, but five can get sat down in comfort, and to eat from a nice big table that adjusts and folds to make space. A home for the TV is found just inside the habitation door and there’s a useful cupboard here too.
  • To the rear, the shower and bench-type toilet are enclosed in a room that offers yet more storage for cosmetics.
  • There’s no full-blown garage here, but a large locker is externally accessed and plenty big enough for all, but full-sized bikes.
