    Brilliant, this fits perfectly! Coming from a boating background, I love the teak holly floor. Plenty of woodwork, very nautical. This is a spanner in the works!

    Looking for the sunny side of the street
    @Cliffdale have you tried caravanfinder.co.uk & select 'motorhomes':rolleyes:

    You can search by layout....lots of diagrams....no idea if that helps

    P.s. I second 'Fred' (y)

    Dethleffs do a black magic edition, with a low island bed at the back.

    Could I ask why not an A class? As there are loads that would fit the bill and possibly some (Hymer Exsis)shorter than 7m

    Do Rapido 7090f come in different model numbers? I've been looking for one or something similar 2014 to 2016, newish model. Nothing found on my searches!

    The A class is just a personal view, I just don't like the look of them.

    The Burstner T740 also looks good but prefer the Rapido if they still make them.

    That's a shame as you would be surprised how much more space you have inside them at front end particularly I must admit I had same preferences as you when we started but soon came round to liking them after two coach builts

    Burstner T740. Ticks all the boxes you listed.
    We took delivery of ours couple of months ago, and have been delighted with it.

    The trouble is ...........

    They all look fabulous! Love the island bed, love the back lounge. I did see an island bed that dropped down onto a rear lounge but I can't find it now. That covered everything!


    I am going to NEC in October to get on a few motorhomes but at the moment, the scales are tipping towards a rear lounge.

    I reallly appreciate your pointers and all have been followed up.
