Practical Motorhome reviews the Mooveo C647, a curiously named but competent 'van
The designers (almost) managed to wreck things, though, by deciding that they’d had enough of styling by the time they came to the rear panel, leaving it devoid of any feature or interest, apart from the exterior ladder. Aluminium-clad sandwich panels have been used for the sidewalls.
Inside, there's room for six sleepers, although only four can travel belted up. The bunk bed is positioned longitudinally at the rear. The bottom bunk base is hinged and fitted with a large, exterior-access door so that this area can be used for storage. Take care when loading it because the position of the garage means that the weight will be predominantly on one side, which can dramatically effect a motorhome’s on-road stability. The cabinetwork is more than up to the job, with a funky appearance.

Mooveo has favoured Thetford over Dometic for its C647’s refrigerator, and although it is not the largest at 97 litres, we like the internal layout. The Thetford fridge also has an automatic energy selection function and is raised off the floor for easier retrieval of the contents.
The elegant, practical, coat hooks, various cubby holes and the superior kitchen storage give it a distinct advantage over most rivals.

This ’van scored highly on our test. We're fans of the Renault Master base vehicle and the automatic transmission is a big plus on this model. We also loved the C647’s great kitchen and 'young', aesthetic decor. We say move up to a Mooveo.
- Well-proven base vehicle; auto transmission option; great kitchen; appealing decor
- Featureless rear panel
