French manufacturer Chausson grew its Suite range to three models for the 2011 season, and our favourite was the Suite Maxi. Adding just 70cm to the length of the original Suite, Chausson still managed to fit in a better-equipped kitchen, more storage and a spacious rear garage.

French manufacturer Chausson grew its Suite range to three models for the 2011 season, and our favourite was the Suite Maxi.

 

Adding just 70cm to the length of the original Suite, Chausson still managed to fit in a better-equipped kitchen, more storage and a spacious rear garage.

 

The headline feature, though, is the optional, motorised Fiamma bike rack, which slides up and into the garage to stow two bikes upright, safely locked out of sight.

 

The lounge is sumptuously spacious for such a small motorhome, with seats arranged in a circle around a large table.

 

An electric bed lowers from the ceiling above this lounge, and is spacious and comfortable. For more on the Suite Maxi, see our written review, or click below to watch our full video review.
