Practical Motorhome reviews the stylish Roller Team T-Line 740 to see if this Italian-designed French four-berth could be the motorhome for you!
Italian marque Roller Team enjoys a loyal following among British buyers, and understandably so. Part of the French giant Trigano Group, Roller Team motorhomes offer an attractive combination of Italian design flair with a quality build, at affordable prices.
T-Line is Roller Team’s premium line-up, comprising three low-profile models. One layout that should do well in the 2014 season is the 740, sporting the popular rear French bed with two extra berths in the lounge, courtesy of a drop-down bed. Prices start on the right side of £50,000, and prospective buyers will be further tempted by the attractive Lux Pack of options (as fitted to our test ’van) being offered for no extra cost until 23 February, 2014 – a saving of £1195.
The 740’s interior has a classy look, with glossy white locker facings contrasting with the dark cabinet work. The floor is a mid-tone brown. Everything feels reassuringly high-quality.
On the road
Although the vehicle is right-hand drive, the habitation door is on the UK offside; it’s fine if you tour in Europe, but in the UK, you’ll have to take care when using it at the side of the road.
Lounging & dining
Two further berths are available in a drop-down bed above the lounge. This is deployed via a switch above the fridge, which is key operated for safety. This double bed measures 2.11m by 1.16m (tapering to 1.13m) making it longer than the 1.87m x 1.39m fixed bed.
Although the cab is well integrated into the vehicle, a separation curtain is available as an option. Standard cab specification includes a radio/CD player and cruise control. Remis concertina blinds pull into the middle of the dashboard and from the rear edge of the side windows at night.

This well-specified mid-profile four-berth from Roller Team offers sharp Italian design with good fit and finish. It’s competitively priced, too, and the Lux Pack is good value. The habitation door is on the offside of the T-Line 740, though, which may not suit all buyers.
But don't take our word for it, arrange to see the T-Line range of motorhomes for yourself, in Grimsby, Lincolnshire or one of the other Roller Team motorhome dealerships in the UK.
