We’ve recently reviewed the K Yacht 59, Mobilvetta’s A-class take on an increasingly popular end-washroom layout.
But that is not the only new A-class model the Italian manufacturer – whose vehicles are brought to the UK exclusively by Marquis Leisure – has launched for the 2022 season. Ever mindful of the UK market, the Trigano Group brand has also launched the rear-lounge K Yacht 95.
This 7.45m-long vehicle has many of the same external upgrades as its sibling – a bigger windscreen, 4400kg MTPLM (which gives you a 1002kg payload, easily enough for four), Alde heating and Fiat’s nine-speed automatic gearbox.
In addition, you still get the driver’s door on the ‘right’ side for the UK, and a rear-view camera. The main difference is the garage that runs right across the motorhome under the rear lounge.
Inside, the front dinette includes a large permanent table, easily big enough for four.
While the windows let in plenty of daylight, an LED under the drop-down bed lights the area at night. There are TV sockets and a bracket above the travel seats , and so long as you are not sitting in those seats, TV viewing should be fine.
A cloth pocket on the edge of the settee closest to the door is a handy place to keep your magazines. There is a mains socket on the other edge of this settee, and two USBs on the forward edge of the offside settee.
The rear lounge is spacious, but the base cushions rest on boards, rather than slats, which these days feels a touch old-fashioned.
The foldaway table here is plenty bit enough, although getting it out of the wardrobe was quite a challenge.
The side kitchen has a useful ambient light at worktop level – great at night and a helpful addition to the daylight coming through the large window.
Work space is a little minimal, but usefully the three-burner hob does include an induction plate. You also get a handy spice rack, and a socket above the hob for a kettle. There is a 149-litre fridge with an ample freezer – easily enough for the provisions of a family of four, although it is only three-way, not AES. Pleasingly for a Continental-built motorhome, you do get a combined oven and grill here.
Despite being a side washroom, the shower cubicle gets its own roof vent. It also has two drain holes – handy if the ‘van is not quite level when you’re pitched up – and a shelf for toiletries.
The main washroom has a salad-bowl style handbasin, ladder radiator, mirror, toothbrush mug and toilet roll holder. The offside location means the cassette toilet hatch is away from any awning.
The drop-down bed is easy to manage and a good width at 1.3m. It includes a well-placed light for reading.
The two settees in the rear lounge are 1.94m long, so they make comfortable single beds on their own by removing the backrests. But you can almost as easily make up the double by pulling out slats. The cushions fit snugly.
In terms of storage: there is internal access to the area under the offside settee. There is to the nearside settee too, although much of this is taken up with the Alde heater. There is no internal access to the rear gage. There are six overhead lockers, and a wardrobe, too; the latter is half-height, and there’s a small cupboard below it.
In the front lounge there is storage under the nearside seat, one overhead locker and cubby-holes in the cab
The kitchen has two further lockers, two useful pan cupboards and two drawers.
The washroom has a large cupboard and a shallower one behind the mirror. You can open these without having to open the main washroom door.
PRACTICAL MOTORHOME SAYS…
This A-class model certainly looks and feels luxurious – it’s stylish and everything feels good quality. For the price, we’d like to have seen a microwave and separate oven, but storage is good, allowing you to make the most of that large payload.
The K Yacht 95 certainly makes Mobilvetta’s line-up even more amenable to the UK buyer than it already was. Its rear lounge is very comfortable, and will provide more than adequate sleeping for growing children right up until they are teenagers.
