DETAILED REVIEW

Read MMM's head to head motorhome review the Bessacarr E769 and Lunar Roadstar 800 from July 2007



Increasingly, motorhomes can resemble home. Sophisticated radiator-equipped central heating systems, entertainment centres with DVD and MP3 capability and enormous fridges with dedicated space for your chilled Chablis are just a few of the exciting, domestic-style features to be found in 2007
models.

Enter the island bed layout. Somewhatof a misnomer, this feature actually refers to a double bed with access on three sides: I guess ‘peninsular bed’ sounds less sexy! Aside from very easy bed access, the other big advantage of these designs is the fact that separate bedrooms are created - this last tranche of domesticity, potentially completing the ultimate ‘home-from-motorhome.’
