    Hi, I am looking to buy a motor home with an island bed. I have an option on a Rollerteam 695 and wondered if anybody can tell me about them - are they any good? What's the engine like? are there any things to look out for / avoid. All advice welcome.
    If there's a better make and model this would also be interesting.
    Do you know of one for sale?
    Thanks very much and I look forward to hearing from you:thumb:

    Hi Devon lass and welcome to fun.

    I don't have any experience with this make, I do think you need to put a little more info for instance what is the base Vechile I.E fiat ford ect

    What year is it as quality can change with some manufacturers as they get new equipment.

    You ask if there's a better make or model I would think so but that will depend on your budget.

    Hope this helps you get an answer

    We have an island bed in our Chausson Welcome 72. Avoids that awkward climb over for your night time visits to the loo and to put the kettle on in the morning but a very extravagant use of space.

    Which does not mean we are unhappy. Just a choice to make.
