The rear-lounge layout is a favourite amongst British motorcaravanners, which is why in the August 2017 edition of Practical Motorhome we’ve dedicated 26 pages to reviews of ’vans vying for your attention. It’s on sale now!
Our end-lounge special kicks off on page 60 as we review the Tribute 680, a two-berth high-top that puts this layout into a 6.36m-long van conversion priced from just over £41,000 OTR.
And there’s more!
With four down in our eight-motorhome megatest, what’s next? How about something French? It’s the new-for-2017 Pilote P650U Sensation. It also slips under the 6.5m mark, offers a 720kg payload and has a licence-friendly MTPLM of 3500kg.
Then a four-berth Frankia is here to tempt you. Turn to page 80 of our August 2017 magazine for our review of the A 740 Plus, a 7.52m-long overcab with a 4500kg MTPLM, a generous rear double bed and a pair of single beds at the front.
And last, but by no means least, we’ve a motorhome that’s doing some serious number-crunching. Read our Escape 685 review, which packs a twin-lounge six-berth into a sub-7m ’van, with a 3500kg MTPLM and a price south of £50,000 – find out more from page 88.
