    Another one we are looking at 40k 2012 lots of floor space as a drop down bed and only 599m long, any good bad points?
    Seen at Southdowns in Portsmouth.
    One downside for us is storage but considering as floor area would be brilliant for dogs whilst keeping with a compact van.

    Thanks Lin & Nige

    Hi Lin & Nige,
    We have a 2013 it590 and have found it brilliant for 2 people. It is marketed as a 4 berth but you would have to be an acrobat to get in or out of the lounge bed when the drop-down bed is down! We have done 53,00km in ours, and everyone we have met on our travels is amazed by the amount of space inside a sub 6 metre motorhome.
    The quality of fittings is superb, and the only real trouble we have had is a broken wire to the microswitch on the bathroom tap.
    A design fault you need to be aware of is the shape of the roof. The bulge that houses the drop-down bed flattens out to the rear just above the habitation door. Our van slopes down towards the front, so when it rains the water collects above the habitation door, and when you step in (or out) of the van, the water cascades down on your head!
    There is a fix for this if you have an awning fitted (see the heading "Teething troubles" in our blog) which cures it entirely.
    I would thoroughly recommend this motorhome - it is ideal for us, I hope it could be for you.
    Cheers
    Brian

    Thanks for the info Brian, we decided to keep our pvc in the end, but good to know for future reference.
