Innovative Rapido unveil unique new models
Enter the 9060 dF, a Fiat Ducato-based 7.39-metre A-class. Inside, there’s the obligatory drop-down double bed, L-shaped lounge and kitchen, and bedroom in the rear, with island double bed and en-suite washroom.
All rather ordinary you might think, but it’s in the bedroom where things get very interesting. The bed is divided down the middle and slides apart to create two singles, while the whole unit can slide to one side to make a corner double. To allow this to happen the wardrobes and overhead lockers must move, and they do.
In fact, all of the bedroom furniture slides on rails to create three different layouts – four, if you count the fact that the corner double can live either side of the bedroom.
Is this unique? Well, we’ve never seen the like before. The point here is that the bedroom can be set up for cosy nights together or nights apart when it’s maybe too hot. It makes this clever motorhome ideal for friends and other family members to use.
Van conversions are always limited on space, but the six-metre, Fiat Ducato-based Rapido V55 really makes the most of it.
This van conversion manages to provide an en-suite washroom with big separate shower in its compact environs.
There’s even room for a big fridge/freezer too, and the V55 does it by housing its wardrobe inside the shower. When it’s time for a serious splash, the wardrobe swings out and over the fixed double bed in the rear.
Doors then enclose the shower and toilet room – a proper en-suite in a panel van conversion is pretty special and a bit of a design triumph. Cue kisses on both cheeks for the clever people in Mayenne.
