Vantage Motorhomes is the brainchild of Scot Naylor, a Leeds-based furniture designer and retailer with a passion for motorhomes.

Having owned several ’vans down the years, including a Mazda Bongo and coachbuilts from Autocruise and Auto-Sleepers, he and his wife Jane decided to take the plunge and branch out into van conversions using the latest generation X2/50 panel van from the Sevel Group’s joint Fiat/Peugeot/Citroën venture in 2006.

This conversion is known as the Max, and was available (in Sept 2008) as a rear lounge (RL) or fixed-bed (FB) on the long-wheelbase Peugeot Boxer. We chose the rear lounge (RL) option for our test.
