A super-luxury six-berth from the top-end Doncaster marque, find out more about this 'van in Practical Motorhome's RS Motorhomes Endeavour C230G review
2014 was a busy year for RS Motorhomes. The company moved to new premises in Harworth, near Doncaster, which has enabled it to better concentrate its sales, service and production facilities under one roof. One of the first things off the new production line was the 2014 version of the Endeavour, which starts from £138,000.
Based on the Iveco Daily, which topped the charts for reliability in our 2014 Owner Satisfaction Survey, these vehicles are primarily designed for customers who follow motorsports, travelling from event to event and needing full-facility accommodation, sometimes off-grid.
Mick Rowe, RS Motorhomes’ MD, started building motorhomes after watching his sons compete in motorsports; he saw what his contemporaries lived in during events and thought he could do better. The rest, as they say, is history, and building vehicles for this purpose is still the main business for RS, although more touring customers are steadily being added to the order book.
RS Motorhomes notched up a Gold Award for new ’vans in our Owner Satisfaction Awards 2010, polling an excellent 99%, so the company clearly builds a quality product.
Lounging & dining
Forwards, in the lounge, the seats can be reconfigured into a comfortable king-size double bed using pull-across slat bases. The whole process takes a couple of minutes. Another double bed is available above the driver’s cab; for 2014, the Luton’s extended overhang means the bed is now wider.
It’s an excellent execution of a motorhome washroom, made possible by the 9.1m length of the vehicle. An abundance of task lighting illuminates the workspace and adds ambience, too.

With its spacious and comfortable environment, our RS Endeavour C230G review reveals this is all the motorhome you could ever need. It’s not cheap, but you get what you pay for – excellent design and superb build quality.
