    Hi All

    I'm considering another MH and would like to have an Island Bed. Apart from some Hymers who else does these?

    Am I alone in being bemused by the infinite number of models and numbers and base vehicles variants within just the Hymer range alone.

    I would be looking for something in the £20-25k range, and am happy to go abroad to get one.

    Any links would be appreciated.

    I would think for that money you might find a Chausson Welcome 72 or Allegro 97 ? Or maybe not

    depending on the length look at the Lunar Roadstar, some of their layouts have fixed beds. We have the 786

    We've got the Hobby 690. It's got a brilliant 5ft wide island bed. :thumb:

    Island beds also in Rapido 9090 and 1000 series, but not been made that long so probably over your budget.

    Ours has an island bed and it was probably what swung it for us. (Carrying on the verb "to swing" from another totally different thread).

    It is really good to be able to get out of bed without climbing over your partner, and how many of us have to make at least one nocturnal trip to the loo?

    There is a price to be paid though and it has to be said that island beds are wasteful of space. The loo/washroom/shower that it normally accommodated to the side of the bed has to go somewhere else.

    But no regrets for us.

    This is nearer your price range though, Looks like an ex - rental van, seems cheap.

    Just looked at it again & it would still be cheap if you had to pay for a full retrim!
