DETAILED REVIEW

 

 

 

If the Symbol Plus takes a time-honoured floorplan and adds to it, then you might like to think of the Kemerton XL as a Symbol Plus Plus!

There’s a similar front lounge format, with a side settee and single rear travel seat, but, as an XL model (on the 6.36m window van), it gains extra space for the lounge, more storage and a much more generous washroom.

That forward seating area is completed with twin swivel cab seats and a choice of coffee table or full-sized dining table, the latter suiting the larger space of the Kemerton XL better than either of the Symbol models.

The bigger base vehicle also equates to larger beds, the nearside seat flattening to make a 1.92m-long single, while the simple addition of an infill to the offside settee makes a 2.05m mattress.

Not only that, but you can leave the nearside seat in its bed position, add backrest cushions across the sliding door and create a HUGE lounge with comfortably room for seven people – or more!

Also, there’s the possibility of a super-sized double bed (1.92m by 1.84m) but, if you want to use the nearside settee and the double bed, you’ll need to plan carefully where you stow all the extra cushions.

Not that the Kemerton XL is short of storage space, especially thanks to the taller nearside furniture behind the lounge.

Here you get three large drawers for folded clothes beneath the wardrobe and the largest capacity fridge in Auto-Sleepers’ campervan range – a 105-litre three-way unit mounted off the floor for stoop-free access.

There’s some higher-level worktop on the nearside, but the main galley area is opposite. It’s here that you’ll discover the hob, oven/grill, eye-level microwave, power tower for 230V appliances and lots of cupboard space (albeit with only one small drawer).

Across the back of the camper the layout really diverges from the two Symbols – and the rest of the range. On the nearside is the bench-style cassette toilet (easier to clean than swivel types and with a larger holding tank) with plenty of room for its use.

Then, on the offside, is a separate wet area surrounded by tambour doors. This includes a tip-up washbasin as well as the shower – and a mirror backlit in blue!

More significantly, of course, the washroom can be accessed directly from outside before you tramp mud into the carpets or put soggy wetsuits on the upholstery.
