    Had a 2007 model and really liked it. The only problem I had was the leg space in the loo: it wasn't easy to fit legs in comfortably and shut the door when on the throne. I'm only short but rather on the wide side so the angle wasn't ideal. Mine had a fixed bed and it was comfortable but sitting up to read was compromised by the rear window.
    Good luck with your purchase. If it is a rear lounge model then these problems probably aren't an issue.

    Thanks cal54 and mike. This is our 2nd van, the last one only lasted 4month then we were told it had water damage to the rear of it . we were sold a right duck by a con artist.

    Hi, We have a 08 Cheyenne 740 with single fixed beds and huge bathroom across rear of van, never had any bother, works like a dream. Its not the first auto trail we've had, and when we come to change this for a newer model it will be for another auto trail, love them. Good luck with whatever you buy(y). Mew & Mick

    Better get myself into gear, so I don't miss out. This 634 has a L shape rear lounge.

    Our first motorhome was a Cheyenne 634, though that had a U shaped lounge, based on the Merc chassis with sprint shift gearbox.
    Suspension was a tad soft but fitting air suspension soon put that right.
    All in all a fantastic motorhome, shame Autotrail cheapened the inside of the newer models.

    We love our old 2000 Cheyenne 634 with its enormous U shaped lounge, I'm sure you'll love yours too.
    Enjoy(y)
