A few downsides? Keeping maximum weight to a licence-friendly 3500kg means payload isn’t that generous (there’s a 4000kg upgrade, if you want it). Drivers need to be wary, too, of the considerable overhang.
PRACTICAL MOTORHOME SAYS:
Okay, so it’s not exactly cheap, but it is certainly a little bit exclusive, even by Auto-Sleepers’ standards. It’s not just equipped to sky-high levels (especially if you order with the optional Packs) but, critically, there’s still plenty of actual living space in this Corinium.
Extensive specification; lots of living space; large bedroom
Limited payload; long overhang
A touch of luxury from Auto-Sleepers? Look no further than its Corinium coachbuilt trio. The FB variant reviewed here has a French bed and, across the back, a full washroom.
Despite its ability to sleep four, this is surely aimed at couples who want lots of indulgence, and plenty of space to enjoy it all in.
The FB has twin sofas aft of the cab, which, combined with the swivelled cab seats, makes for the roomy daytime space many motorhomes can only dream about
The FB has twin sofas aft of the cab, which, combined with the swivelled cab seats and the freestanding table (from its own locker), makes for the roomy daytime space many motorhomes can only dream about. Also key here is the case of setting up.
The brown soft furnishings complement the medium/dark furniture finish, but there are alternatives.
The kitchen is mid-‘van, with the main unit along the offside housing a Thetford cooker (three gas rings, plus hotplate, separate oven and grill) to the right and the stainless steel sink far left. This leaves permanent worktop between the two, although the add-on drainer swallows some of this. The slide-out worktop is great, but might leave some folk feeling hemmed in.
Across the galley is a huge, 190-litre Dometic fridge/freezer with Russell Hobbs microwave above.
A door from the bedroom provides access to the washroom. It’s decidedly roomy, despite some intrusion by the setting of the basin. It’s a generous shower cubicle, too, in the far corner.
A clear window beyond the Dometic ceramic-bowl toilet is a boon, and storage includes a tambour-door locker under the basin. Plus, you get a toothbrush and mug holder, soap tray, wire baskets and a towel loop.
Open the door beyond the kitchen and – noting the flat floor throughout – there’s the fullest of bedrooms and a washroom extending right across the back.
The French bed extends along the nearside, but note that large padded headboard and low mattress level for easy access. There’s also a window and a big rooflight.
There’s storage, accessible by hinging up the bed frame or via an external hatch. In the bedroom itself, there’s a double wardrobe and quartet of drawers along the offside wall, plus a vanity area just outside the washroom.
