Compact coachbuilts have carved out a popular space in the motorhome market, with a wave of them becoming available over the past few seasons.

One of the ranges that has proved most popular has been Accordo from Elddis.

It caused a bit of a sensation when it was unveiled in July 2013, creeping under the 6m body length barrier and sporting a width similar to a panel van conversion.

So at a stroke, one of the objections to having a coachbuilt was removed: an Accordo will fit on your front drive and will go to all the places you want to take it – ideal for both country lane pootling and urban jousting, as our Gentleman Jack once put it.

ƒThe Accordo range has since grown, with the 120 debuting in the 2016 model year.

This two-berth shares the same unique selling points as its siblings, but with the added appeal of a UK-friendly rear lounge on a 5.99m body length. (ƒThe 135 is also 5.99m long but has a shorter rear lounge to fit in its front dinette.)

Accordo has been tweaked for the 2017 season, and the biggest upgrade concerns the Peugeot Boxer base vehicle, now boasting a Euro 6-compliant powerplant that is leaner and greener than the version it replaced.

A low-line chassis now features, so there’s no need for an electric entrance step, and the silver sides get a new graphics scheme.

ƒAs for payload, 732kg is a generous allocation for a couple’s ’van.
