Rimor launches new Evo motorhome range
Rimor has revealed details of a brand new motorhome range ahead of the 2020 season.
The Italian manufacturers – part of the Trigano Group – are introducing the Evo range of motorhomes. The new models were on display during Rimor’s press launch in San Gimignano, Tuscany, though these were prototypes; it was advised that there would be some design changes to the exterior styling as well as a new dashboard, prior to the official launch later this year.
Built on a Ford chassis, there are six different layouts in the range – the Evo 5, Sound, 77 Plus, 66 Plus, 69 Plus and 95 Plus. The Evo 5 and Sound are overcabs, and the rest of the range are low profile motorhomes.
The 66 Plus and 69 Plus both have rear island beds with a double bed over the cab, the 95 Plus has rear twin beds with a double bed over the cab and the Evo 5 has a rear transverse double bed as well as a double bed over the cab. There is also the option of converting seating in the lounge to a further double bed in the Evo 5.
However, the 77 Plus and Sound may be the two models that prove most popular with UK buyers. The 77 Plus has a rear u-shaped lounge and two drop down double beds – one over the lounge and one over the cab. Crucially, it’s under the seven-metre length mark. It has five travel seats and, to increase the impact of that stylish-looking lounge, the option of having a wider window.
The Evo Sound, meanwhile, will appeal to larger families as it can sleep up to seven people. It has rear bunk beds and a rear washroom layout, plus further sleeping accommodation with a drop down double bed over the cab and by converting the seating in the lounge. The lounge sofas can be made up into another double bed and a single bed – albeit a small one.
UK pricing for the new Evo range, from importer and dealer MandCLtd, in Hull, has all layouts under the £50k mark. The Evo Sound and Evo 5 will retail at £45,995; the 95 at £47,995; the 69 at £47,995 and the 66 at £48,995. The Evo 77 has a special introductory price of £48,995. Pricing is fixed until January 2020, including that introductory price on the Evo 77.
Those prices include the UK Pack and the Bronze Pack. The UK Pack comprises an oven, 120w solar panel, reverse camera and Cat 1 Alarm. The Bronze Pack includes a flyscreen door, cabin seat covers, entrance door window, set up for a solar panel and bed protection nets. Two further packs – the Silver Pack and Gold Pack – are also available as options.
On the Evo range, large fridges come as standard.
Meanwhile, there are new features on two more Rimor ranges for 2020 – Seal and Superbrig.
The Seal range has 12 layouts for 2020 – 12 Plus, 66 Plus, 68 Plus, 69 Plus, 95 Plus, 98 Plus, Seal 3, Seal 5, Seal 8, Seal 50, Seal 9 and Seal 695. UK prices range from £45,995 to £49,495 and include the UK and Gold Packs. Among the changes for the new season are soft-closing cupboards with curved doors, a new drop-down bed, new bathroom door structure and new LED light guide for internal lighting, with dimmable function.
