French firm Pilote has reorganised its portfolio for the 2015 season into three low-profile ranges – A-class line-ups Galaxy and Diamond, plus the low-profile Pacific – and one van conversion range (Foxy Van). All vehicles are based on the sixth-generation Fiat Ducato. Galaxy and Pacific models are available in three trim levels (Essentiel, Sensation and Emotion), so buyers have plenty of choice when it comes to kit and options. 

Pilote enjoys a reputation for build quality and sells at four UK dealerships, including Davan Caravans & Motorhomes in Weston-Super-Mare. The company regularly figures in our Motorhome of the Year awards – its Exporateur Diamond Edition G832LCE won the gong for Best Luxury Motorhome over 3500kg in 2013. Explorateur is no more, now that Diamond is a range in itself. We have reviewed many motorhomes from Pilote over the years and you can read our older Pilote motorhome reviews online. 

Pilote A-class buyers looking to spend less will find plenty to get excited about in the new Galaxy range. One model that should prove popular is the four-berth G740 G, with a rear transverse bed above a rather large garage, or ‘boot’ as Pilote prefers to call it.
