DETAILED REVIEW

Words & photos: Peter Vaughan

The Dethleffs Eurostyle T 6757 DBM

Low-profile motorhomes with an island bed are typically around 7.5m long. Dealer special edition motorhomes are usually built in Britain, often based on the popular entry-level models from Elddis. Here, then, is a motorhome that challenges those preconceptions. For a start, it’s just less than 7m long (rare, but not unique).

Secondly, it’s a German motorhome, built by Dethleffs at its Isny factory and based on the Trend range, with the Eurostyle being exclusive to Nottingham dealer, Lowdhams.

In fact, there are four Eurostyle models – two with island beds and two with twin bed layouts; one of each is a sub 7m motorhome, while the other pair is longer. All are based on the ubiquitous Fiat Ducato, with the 140bhp engine fitted as standard.           

 

What’s included

Also included is the Xtra Special Edition Pack, which adds metallic paint for the contrasting cab, 16in alloy wheels, sat-nav, a bike rack, awning, flush-fit habitation windows and a TV with satellite dish. That’s quite a package, considering the competitive price tag.

So, the Eurostyle is a good-looking motorhome, with its superior glazing giving it the appearance of a more expensive vehicle. It benefits from Dethleffs’ Lifetime Plus body construction, too, featuring walls, roof and floor without cold spots and rigid polyurethane struts for torsional stiffness. GRP is used on the roof as well as under the floor, while XPS foam ensures excellent insulation.

Although the T 6757 is a relatively modest motorhome, it still offers plenty of garage space. With two full-sized loading doors, this area comes with internal headroom of 960mm. There are adjustable tie-down hooks for your gear, as well as a light and 230V socket – even clips to attach the awning handle to the back wall. It’s not just the garage doors that are large but the entrance door, too – this wide opening making for easier loading up. The door is linked to the central locking and has a low inset step as well.  

 

The interior

Once inside, you’ll see that Dethleffs stays with a classic half-dinette style lounge, rather than the fashionable side settee format. That might seem less spacious but those who use them regularly will welcome the instantly available travel seats. If you want a four-berth, the Eurostyle is also optionally available with the drop-down bed shown here.

Don’t be put off by the lounge’s design, either, because this is an inviting space with an L-shaped sofa that’s well-judged for comfort. The duo-tone upholstery and Roman blinds look smart and the overcab sunroof allows plenty of daylight into the vehicle. There’s a 21.5in TV in the entrance area, too – it’s positioned at a nice height for viewing but be careful not to catch yourself against it as you go past.  

 

The kitchen

Stepping from lounge into the galley, the floor is a tad lower. The star feature here is the tall 142-litre Thetford fridge with automatic energy selection, but the main part of the kitchen is opposite. It’s quite a small galley unit, but you still get a three-burner hob and a conveniently situated Duplex oven/grill. What’s lacking is worktop space.

More important, perhaps, in a layout like this is the island bed. The bedroom area certainly appears spacious, but that’s without the mattress infill in place – extending the bed from just 1.73m to 1.90m and making it a bit of a squeeze to get around on the offside.  

 

The washroom

At the foot of the bed, there are split ablutions – a shower with over 2m of headroom on the nearside and a toilet area with large basin and plenty of storage opposite. There’s no screen, though, between the bedroom and the facilities.

Fitting this type of layout into a 7m motorhome does result in some minor compromises but, overall, this is a high-quality and keenly priced model – and there’s a longer version if you prefer.
