It takes something very special to win one of our Motorhome of the Year classes. Frankia’s M-Line T7400 GD scooped our Luxury Motorhome over 3500kg award this time around, but I think I’ve now found something just as good – sister model the QD. 

Instead of twin single beds at the back, the QD has a luxurious island double. 

Either model is two-berth, with belted travel for up to four; otherwise, there’s no floorplan differences. 

Both are that comparative rarity, a ‘low-profile’ coachbuilt on a Mercedes Sprinter base – although low-profile in shape, they sit at two inches over 10ft tall. 

You can blame that on the high-level Sprinter chassis and the fact that drive is via the twin rear wheels. Inside, however, there’s over 2m of standing room throughout the main living area. 

I viewed the new Frankia at SMC Motorhomes in Newark, Nottinghamshire, the brand’s sole UK agent.
