just looking
Hey folks. I'm looking for my first motorhome that I want to take to the Alps in winter as well as summers around Europe and UK. Looking to spend up to £80k max and these 2 have caught me eye. I'll be looking to take a motorbike in garage too. Does anyone have any advice on one vs the other? The Carthago has 22k miles on a 16 plate (£75k) and the Rapido has 10K on a 16 Plate (£70k). Thanks!

Both good brands - hopefully someone with more specific knowledge about those & motorbike storage will be along with advice soon...

What’s the payload of each?
Usually, Carthago is pretty good.
You’ll need it for taking a motorbike as remember you’ll have everything else weight wise to take on all trips so factor this in.

Also check the payload of the garage as some are incredibly low, for that price have a look at the Knaus range. I’m biased as we have one but I don’t think you’ll get better value for money and they do a range with double floor so ideal for ski trips.

Thanks for the advice guys. I've checked out some knaus but haven't found an A-class with the right spec (yet). I really liked a LHD Dethleffs esprit until I drove it a few days ago and found the door pillar completely obscured the left mirror (I'm sit quite far back). Shame as a great van...

As above, check garage payload. Carthago normally pretty good for that. Check unladen weight of both as well. I believe Rapido have a reputation for being heavy. That said, both good brands.
