Before you buy, be sure to read Practical Motorhome's Auto-Trail Tracker EKS review
Decent insulation means you could competently tour in spring and autumn, but freezing weather may prove more of a challenge.
An external locker door allows access to the storage space under the left-hand lounge seat but could allow draughts when camping during colder weather. An electrically folding side doorstep is standard.
On the road
There’s a good mix of easy-to-read instruments, plenty of storage space in the glovebox and door pockets and a dash-mounted pop-up clipboard for maps. There’s also a 12V socket in the dashboard for charging a mobile phone or powering aftermarket satellite navigation, and a standard radio/CD player.
However, the driving position shows up the age of the Ducato cabin – the steering wheel will not adjust sufficiently to allow a comfortable seating position for some drivers. A new Ducato range is due out later this year but may take a while to filter through to convertors.
Lounging & dining
The Tracker provides a small worksurface next to the fridge unit with a fold-up tray to hold the TV. There’s an aerial and socket on the wall behind the fridge worktop. This design means people can see the TV’s screen easily.
If you prefer to read rather than watch television, there are two large side windows in the lounge area. A large skylights help to brighten the living area on dull days and directional spotlights mean that getting stuck into a good book is easy on the eyes.
The rear kitchen design also means that there is some extra worktop, with the fridge beneath it. The kitchen is easy to use while cooking, but the floor-mounted fridge means bending down to get at its contents. There’s also no splash guard on the wall, so caution will be needed to avoid marking the wood while cooking.
You get a locker to keep wine glasses and bottles securely fastened. It’s on the left-hand wall on the other side of the door from the sink, so it’s easy to access.
You’re offered a decent amount of storage space in the washroom, so you will have no problems stacking away towels. A towel rail and toilet roll holder is also provided. There’s a Thetford electric-flush toilet that rotates for greater ease of use.
There are useful lockers above the lounge area, as well as large lockers in the overcab section.
Beneath the lounge seats is a reasonably sized storage area, with external access to the left-hand bench.

his is a great all-rounder that will take on longer trips without complaint
- Very simple to use; the double bed arrangement
- Shower cubicle does not have enough headroom
