What Motorhome's best new motorhomes of 2019

48ced5c0-a5f9-46fb-b8f0-df7bd445df7e

The July issue of What Motorhome is something of a special edition – revealed inside the magazine are our favourite new motorhomes of 2019.

There were lots of strong models under consideration and the final decisions weren’t easy. We looked at a varied range of motorhomes, from those with a fixed bed to those without, to compact models and luxury A-class.

The eight categories were:

  • Best new motorhome with fixed bed under £50k
  • Best new motorhome with fixed bed over £50k
  • Best new motorhome without fixed bed under £50k
  • Best new motorhome without fixed bed over £50k
  • Best new family motorhome
  • Best new compact motorhome
  • Best new luxury A-class motorhome
  • Best new ultimate A-class motorhome

And the winners were….

Best new motorhome with fixed bed under £50k – Benimar Primero 301

Good value in terms of price, the 301 features two large double beds, a compact size and an impressive rear garage.

We said: ‘The two big double beds, both instantly available with bedding in situ, are the key to the appeal of this new Benimar.’

Best motorhome with fixed bed over £50k – Dethleffs Pulse T 7051 DBM

This is a particularly competitive category, so it’s a well-earned success for this Dethleffs model – deserved, as much as anything, for its generous standard spec.

We said: ‘It’s the contemporary style, plethora of interior lights and top-notch build quality that stand out here.’

Best motorhome without fixed bed under £50k – Swift Escape Compact C402

Swift is known for its budget coachbuilt motorhome range and the Escape Compact C402 looks especially good value. At less than six metres long, it’s compact and easy to drive.

We said: ‘With a class layout and a nationwide dealer network behind it, it’s sure to swiftly become another success story for the Escape range.’

Best motorhome without fixed bed over £50k – Chausson 640 Titanium

This impressed us almost at first glance – it has a spacious lounge, the largest drop-down bed in its class, and is great to drive, thanks to the Ford chassis.

We said: ‘Chausson has surely become the market leader when it comes to low-profiles equipped with a drop-down bed.’

Best family motorhome – Benimar Tessoro 413

Another success for Spanish brand Benimar. The Tessoro 413 is a model that is designed specifically for motorhoming families, complete with child-pleasing bunk beds.

We said: ‘A relatively compact coachbuilt, the Tessoro 413 still manages to pack in everything that a 2+2 family will need, despite its size.’

Best compact motorhome – Roller Team Pegaso 590

An A-class motorhome that’s less than six metres in length, Roller Team’s Pegaso 590 is one clever model, providing a large living area during the day and an easy-to-use main bed for night.

We said: ‘When you examine this Pegaso’s interior space and facilities, you’ll struggle to believe that this motorhome is just 6m long. It’s downsizing without the compromises.’

Best luxury A-class motorhome – Frankia F-Line I 680 SG

Large and spacious, quality exudes throughout Frankia’s F-Line I 680 SG, from the expansive lounge to the massive Duo Bed and generous storage options.

We said: ‘There are many ways in which the new F-Line I 680 SG excels but it’s the storage – both in terms of capacity and well thought-out-design – that’s the standout element. And there’s loads more to love, too.’

Best ultimate A-class motorhome – Carthago Liner-for-two 53

Notable for its C-shaped lounge, this is a rather special A-class motorhome. In fact, we’ve described it as an ‘apartment on wheels’ and build quality is reassuringly high.

We said: ‘If you’re in the market for a really special motorhome then few A-classes can match the luxurious lounge of the Liner-for-two.’
