RAPIDO HAS BECOME the latest European manufacturer to launch a line-up of compact low-profiles. The three models in the Fiat Ducato-based range are all only 2.17m wide and under 7m long, but have four travel seats and three berths.

The range includes the island-bed C86, the C55 with two single beds, and the C56, which manages to accommodate a 2.04m-long French bed.

It has also extended its Ultimate Line collection and there’s a new Rapido V65 XL van conversion, which is based on the extra-long-wheelbase Ducato.

There are four new offerings in the company’s budget-priced Itineo range. Also under the Itineo brand is the new Spirit Edition, which provides you with exclusive upholstery, branding and smart extras such as a leather steering wheel.
