    We have the 791ff 2012 model and have been in it most nights for almost 18 months and touch wood nothing has failed or dropped off.

    The only issue we have had has been with the weight problem particularly with the 2000Kg limit on the rear axle so do check that out.

    We have a fixed island bed and a drop down central bed and have found it extremely comfortable

    Rapido Fulltime

    Been living in my 2004 972M for 2years now. Great for fulltiming. solid build and withstands the toil of daily use. Ok so mine is an A series but the furnishings etc are all the same and are of good quality.

    We have a 7090df bought new in 2011. We do not full time but we do go away several times per year for 9 weeks at a time. We find it delightful! Apart from a current problem with the fridge (not Rapido's fault!) we have had no real issues.

    Its an island bed, in a separate bedroom effectively, which in our view for long term use is important as we can go to bed and get up independently because we still have the lounge area.

    We have a 776FF and find it very good, fixed rear bed with large boot space and a drop down bed over the lounge, both very comfortable. Would certainly buy another Rapido, that's if I was going to change, which I'm not. :thumb:

    We bought a 2008 7090c in November last year.

    Would I buy another?

    Nah, this one suites us perfectly :BigGrin:
