German luxury for less!
When is a budget ’van not a budget ’van? Perhaps the motorhome we start our latest episode with is one such model.
We review the Sunlight T68, an affordable low-profile four-berth that is built to last. Its fresh styling is aimed at younger buyers, with leather-trimmed seats that are rather pleasing to the eye.
Being a German-built ’van, it is no surprise that the updated-for-2017 kitchen is tight on space, but you do get a trio of gas burners, a combined oven/grill and a fridge with a separate freezer compartment.
This motorhome also has an impressive washroom, as well as fixed twin single beds at the rear that can be transformed into a huge double! Check it out this week on Practical Motorhome TV.
Self-building advice and a trip to Dorset
Then we’ve more from our technical guru Diamond Dave. In this episode he’s talking self-build motorhomes. In fact, you can check out the one he built himself!
He explains what you need to consider if you fancy doing this, from what your budget is and what base vehicle you’d like, to the layout you want, what weight you can drive and what skills you require.
After the break, we are truly getting away from it all as we visit Dorset and the Back of Beyond campsite. This adults-only, ecologically minded park provides a tranquil place to recharge your batteries.
This dog-friendly site has 80 large pitches, many of which have hook-ups and water connections. Facilities include a shop, a lakeside picnic area, washrooms, a dog-walk area and a pitch-and-putt course. See it for yourself this week on Practical Motorhome TV.
Marquis dealer special reviewed
Inside, Marquis has retained many of Swift’s 2017-season changes and the attention to detail is very impressive. As is the comfortable, triple-aspect rear lounge, the good-sized front lounge and the fact it has a total of five belted travel seats.
Catch our Marquis Lifestyle 685 review and more when you watch Practical Motorhome TV between 27 March and 2 April 2017, on Sky 212, Freesat 161 or live online.
