The French bed/corner washroom layout is certainly well represented in today’s motorhome market – buyers clearly like the convenience of a fixed rear bed and adjacent ablution facilities. But if faced by customers who don’t favour one brand, how does a manufacturer offering this floorplan stand out in the crowd?

Pilote has gone some way to answering that question with its Pacific P716P, which sports the aforementioned layout but plants a light firmly under its bushel with a large front lounge. In fact, that’s underselling it – it’s a fantastic achievement.
