DETAILED REVIEW

Hobby's Vantana range comes in three flavours – OnTour, De Luxe and Premium, each adding more kit (and more cost). Then, there are two layouts – the commonplace continental ones of transverse rear double bed (K60 FT) or lengthways singles in the end bedroom (K65 ET).

Of course, it’s the OnTour versions that we’re focusing on here, although a K60 FT De Luxe just comes into the £50k budget, too. OnTour specification gives you the same design and the same build quality as the most expensive models, but with prices from just £43k (£2,500 more for the longer, heavier chassis K65 ET).

You’ll spot the Fiat’s unpainted bumpers, steel wheels and white-only colour scheme, but the OnTour is lined throughout with B6 high-performance insulation and XPS foam. In the cab, driver and passenger airbags, air-conditioning, and twin armrests for each chair are standard.

There’s also a conveniently located fridge in the end of the galley, so you can access it from outside. Beds have cold foam mattresses on Goodside slatted frames, while a gas-fired Truma Combi 4 takes care of heating and hot water.

A flyscreen for the sliding door is the sort of detail you wouldn’t, perhaps, expect at the price. And, if you want your Vantana to have a more complete spec, a package of kit (from alloys and cruise control to a painted front bumper and retrimmed cab seats) can be added for around £3k.
