Rapido launched a two-model van conversion range in the summer of 2010, and we were particularly impressed with the V56.

Unusually for a van conversion, it has a fixed rear corner bed, with a corner washroom alongside. The kitchen sits amidships, rear of the sliding door, and a half-dinette and facing sofas sit up front.

It's a good looking ’van, too, with Rapido's trademark smiley bumper and grille, and silver paintwork.
