A beautifully crafted and well equipped ’van, great for year-round touring, but very expensive.
Interior finish oozes class; superb range of both manufacturer and factory equipment to choose from.
No locker flaps for access to storage area beneath sofas.
The U-shaped rear lounge conversion is a welcome aspect of many vans of this type. The Destiny has a slide-out section, from the passenger-side bunk, which meets the facing bed box, and there are squab and backrest cushions stored away to finish the job.
With its marble surface and radiused edges for easy seating access, the Destiny’s table is a pleasant place to eat.
The Destiny has a well proportioned kitchen, with plenty of dedicated worksurface. It has a strip light over its sink, an extractor fan and downlighters over the hob (three gas, and one hotplate) and a full-sized oven and grill. The fridge sits across the galley. There’s a built-in cutlery drawer under the sink, a moulded rack for cups and plates, and a microwave oven.
Here we find a large tip-up basin (38 x 30cm), a Thetford bench cassette toilet and a shower with curtain. The vanity cabinet is nicely integrated, and although not the largest of shower areas – 92 x 69cm at its widest – it does boast good lighting, with a strip light and roof light. It’s a shame the shower head is merely a hand-held model. The washroom door has a stay to reduce noise in transit.
There are pleated blinds and curtains for the side windows, and curtains for the rear windows. A slatted bed base pulls out of the slide-out box and runs along the rail between the sofas, to be held in place by rubber stoppers.
Unlike most ’vans of the kinds, the Destiny does not have hinged sofa bases for storage access. Instead, there are lift-out flaps beneath the squab cushions. There are also five overhead lockers on the passenger side: two at the rear and three on the driver’s side.
