Auto-Trail’s classic Scout received various tweaks as part of updates to the wider Frontier range for 2017.

In come a new rear panel with LED light clusters, an improved rear window and a wind-out awning that’s recessed into the roofline.

Available since 1990, the Scout still sports the same layout: rear-lounge with offside front dinette.

From 6.71m-long in 1990, though, the Scout has grown to 8.04m, and is available in two flavours: Lo-Line (low-profile four-berth) or Hi-Line (overcab six-berth).

Keen to find out whether the latest Scout fully lives up to its marketing blurb – “… [it] performs multiple roles with the minimum of fuss” – we took a Hi-Line version to Lincolnshire’s tranquil Woodhall Country Park.
