IN 2021 AUTO-TRAIL is due to become the first British manufacturer to launch an A-class motorhome for well over a decade.
There are three models in the brand’s Grande Frontier range, which should be making their way to your local dealer’s forecourts once lockdown is over. The GF70 has an end washroom, while the GL80 and GL88 both have rear island beds.
There are also two new models in the Tracker range – the RL, with a U-shaped rear lounge, and the SB, with fixed single beds. The Ford-based F-line (now branded Auto-Trail) also gets a new model, the 7.32m-long island-bed F74.
Roller Team isn’t a British brand, but it’s distributed in the UK by Auto-Trail; there’s one new model in the line-up for the 2021 season.
The Zefiro 665 is a 6.41m-long four-berth with a transverse bed at the rear, which can be raised to make more room for the garage below, and a drop-down bed over the dinette.
Both the Auto-Roller and the Pegaso ranges stay as just three models, although Auto-Rollers now come with grey sidewalls, a Skyroof panoramic roof light as standard and, as an option, a Moondust Silver cab.
The Auto-Roller and Pegaso line-ups now also come with a new double-screen rear-view camera, while in addition, the Pegasos are fitted with motorhome-specific sat nav.
