Rapido to launch new Mercedes A-class range

82a04aea-fcd1-491d-80c7-d3d8c1447cf1

It is perhaps no surprise that Rapido is another manufacturer that will be offering motorhomes based on the new Mercedes Sprinter in 2020.

The French firm offered A-classes on Mercedes until 2014 and cites the difficulty of working with a rear-wheel drive chassis (especially with features such as a double floor) as the reason for cessation.

Its new M models, which will debut at Düsseldorf’s Caravan salon in August, are of course based on the new front-drive Sprinter with an Al-Ko chassis. Two 7.54m A-classes will be offered – M66 with single beds and M96 with an island bed – and each will be available in 3,500kg or 4,500kg derivatives.

Exterior styling and a new Duna interior décor will make them instantly recognisable from their Fiat-based cousins.

 

To read full details of all the new 2020 motorhomes and campervans, a special supplement will be available FREE with the November issue of MMM magazine, Britain's best-selling motorhome magazine. You can download a copy of MMM magazine here.
