A quart in a pint pot, with bunk beds large enough to sleep teenagers, at a brilliant starting price
Sleeps four in a unique and serviceable layout
Lounging area is rather cramped; you won’t be cooking any gourmet feasts in the kitchen
The 4Twin seats five with the driver’s seat swivelled, but it is not the most sociable of lounges, and knee-knocking might be an issue for taller users.
The Adria’s table, which is stored in a locker over the cab seats, clips to a wall rail, too. Also, with the sliding door open, the table can be removed and clipped to another rail at the rear of the kitchenette so you can sit outside and use it as a picnic table.
Kitchens and washrooms are often compromised when you’re struggling for space in a small van conversion, and there is evidence of this here. The 4Twin offers a two-burner hob, without spark ignition, and a small sink. It also has a towel rail on the locker door, a drawer for the cutlery, and sufficient lighting overhead, but no extractor fan.
There’s a grill with spark ignition and an old-style Dometic RM4231 fridge-freezer sitting alongside its kitchen unit. Altogether, it’s enough to boil an egg or cook kippers for your breakfast, but not much else.
There’s a full-size washroom, with a large C250-style Thetford toilet, and the tap doubles as a telescoping shower head (which must be hand held). There’s also a cupboard for toiletries, and a shower curtain to protect the rear doors and wooden overhead locker from a soaking.
The upper bunk measures 195 x 75cm, thanks to a hinged bed extension that buckles to the ceiling in transit so it doesn’t sit on the heads of passengers. The lower bunk measures 170 x 75cm. The dinette converts to a large double by sliding out the seat bases and hinging the table at its knee to fill the gap between the seat benches. The result is not the flattest bed we’ve seen but, remember, the 4Twin is not yet in full production (at the time of this test).
A curtain draws across behind the cab seats, but there’s no privacy curtain for the occupants of the bunk beds. They both have large, child-friendly push-button lights.
As well as all the usual cupboards, lockers and wardrobes, the 4Twin effectively offers a rear garage by raising the lower bunk and fastening it at 90 degrees by means of a wing nut.
