A very sound choice for those looking to tour for longer periods.
Well priced, with a high standard of construction
The narrow side door makes entry and exit awkward
The fabrics and wood finish gives the Nuevo a pleasant, cosy atmosphere inside. Other than the narrow side door, access to the living area is easy.
Although buyers might only intend to sleep two people in this low-profile, they might still like to entertain friends and family, so plenty of seating space is essential. The Nuevo has two lounge seats – one on either side of the ’van – and this straightforward approach makes it easy to fit people in when entertaining. It also makes it easy to use the passenger’s rotating captain chair as a seat when dining. However, the table isn’t quite big enough to allow more than four people to dine simultaneously.
If you want to watch TV, there’s an aerial socket and plug point on the wall just behind the worksurface, on top of the fridge. This provides a sturdy platform but makes it more awkward for those seated on the left-hand bench to view the TV screen with ease.
If you prefer to read rather than watch television, there are two large side windows in the lounge area. You get a pair of good-sized lamps to illuminate the lounge and dining areas at night.
The kitchen is at the rear nearside. It offers a decent-sized workspace on the hobs and at the sinks, and plenty of kitchen cupboard space, crockery storage and cutlery drawers.
The fridge is beneath the worktop, but this means bending down to get at their contents. A splashguard protects the wall from hot oil and similar damage.
The washroom is in the offside rear corner and is quite small. However, the sink is deep and there’s a decent amount of storage, so there’s enough room for toiletries and towels. You also get a towel rail and toilet roll holder. A simple shower curtain keeps the walls dry when it’s time to take a shower (and there’s room enough for that to be comfortable.
Creating the double bed is a simple matter of pulling the bases of the two benches together in the centre of the lounge area. This creates a large double bed in the Tracker, Sundance and Nuevo, but there’s no slatted base for the bed, which would reduce the effects of condensation.
When folding it all away, the upper bench cushions are lifted and the bases slid back into place, and the upper seat cushions placed down – all in a matter of seconds.
The wardrobe is in the main cabin, on the right-hand side just in front of the washroom. You store the dining table here when it’s not in use, and this pinches a little space.
There are useful lockers above the lounge area, as well as large lockers in the overcab section.
Beneath the lounge seats is a reasonably sized storage area. We were impressed with the simple gas strut that holds the seat base in the raised position while you are reaching into its under-seat lockers. Unfortunately, there’s no exterior access to them, however, so you’ll need to drag muddy hook-up cables into the van when packing them away.
