A trip to the Brownhills mega-site on the outskirts of Newark, Nottinghamshire, is usually rewarding. I was there in the run-up to Christmas, so, while key staff took time out to serve a free festive lunch to valued customers, I was able to sneak in and take a closer look at this new-for-2020 model from Rapido.

One of the best motorhomes of the year, the M96 is an award-winner, scooping the Best Innovation prize in our Motorhome of the Year Awards 2020, with the judges noting that it’s “packed with clever features that make it a very deserving winner”. 

Rapido has established itself as a producer of premium motorhomes. Hardly surprising, then, that it’s turned its attention to the Mercedes Sprinter as the base for the newest sub-range, called simply M (near-twin sister M66 has twin single beds).
