The Warwick’s exterior and interior beauty and outstanding level of built-in equipment mean it’s a really compelling buy. If you’re in the market for a high-top, consider the Warwick first.
Highly equipped inside and out
Outstanding quality of fit and finish.
Although the windows look great, single-glazing may not offer enough protection in cold climes
The Warwick offers an extremely sociable rear lounge, with long, comfortable benches that face each other. At mealtimes, the free-standing table stands 67cm tall (it’s stored in the overcab locker when not in use). The sofa squabs don’t have pronounced knee rolls, so there is plenty of room to slide your legs under, although the back rest cushions are very upright.
The Warwick has a slide rail and a small, hinged seat base that clips into place, with a dedicated mounting in the wardrobe. This arrangement allows everyone in the lounge area to view the flatscreen TV/DVD/Freeview system that comes as standard equipment.
The Warwick has a generously proportioned kitchen, with 95 x 56cm of dedicated worksurface. There’s a small, recessed bin with a lid and the large, stainless steel sink has a chinchilla glass top which can also be pressed into action as a worksurface.
One hotplate and three burners, a full-sized grill/oven with spark ignition, an extractor fan, and a light sensibly positioned above the hob, should keep even the most demanding cook happy. There is plenty of cupboard space, a microwave above the hob, and a moulded locker for crockery and wine glasses.
The washroom isn’t especially roomy, but then the same is true of most of the Warwick’s main rivals. You get a tip-up basin and a Thetford bench cassette toilet, as well as a shower curtain.
The room is lit using an energy-saving LED striplight, and offers a ceiling vent to let out the steam.
Release a catch in the seat boxes and the slatted bases slide out to meet each other. The backrests drop in as infill cushions. Pleated blinds and flyscreens are supplied for the living area windows, with curtains for the cab and rear windows.
Storage space is at a premium. The Warwick has three overhead lockers on the driver’s side, two on the passenger side, a mini-safe built into the floor under a seat box, and good under-sofa storage space (thanks to gas struts). As well as a wardrobe, it has an umbrella stand and a three-peg coat hook at the entrance.
