New single bed layouts from Devon
Campervan manufacturer, Devon Conversions, has announced new derivatives of its 5.4-metre Colorado and six-metre Arizona models featuring four travel seats and single beds. The first example of these, a Colorado based on a pre-owned Citroën Relay medium-wheelbase van, debuted at the National Motorhome and Campervan Show at Peterborough.
The new four-seat version of the Colorado is identical to the existing version except in the lounge area, where a second rear travel seat replaces the side-facing settee. There is a raised floor section here to match the height of the cab floor and a wall-mounted table sits between the rear seat and the swivelled driver’s chair. On the offside, a footrest caters for the increased height of this seat compared with the side settee layout, as the back seat has to mate up with the cab passenger seat to make a single bed.
Both rear seats simply slide forward and fold flat to make twin beds. These are 1.88m long on the offside and 1.94m long on the nearside.
The Colorado’s kitchen still includes a Triplex cooker with three gas burners and combined oven/grill, a sink with integral drainer and a Dometic 8-Series 85-litre fridge with removable freezer section. A fold-down worktop bridges the gangway between the galley and washroom, while the latter features a shower, bench cassette toilet and a fixed oval washbasin set into a contrasting counter.
The demo Colorado, based on a 16-plate base vehicle with sat-nav, air-con, reversing sensors and 130bhp engine was priced at £29,995. Both it and the longer Arizona are available on new or used Citroën, Fiat or Peugeot vans.
