    Have been trawling the internet for months but finally decided the only way was to see them in the flesh so to speak. We hired an Autotrail Apache 634 for a week, toured most of southern England and finally found what we were looking for (we hope). An Autotrail Apache 634! Two weeks to wait before collection - can't wait.

    We took ages deciding. In the end the u shaped end lounge with a view triumphed over a fixed bed. We had a fixed bed in our caravan so wasn't sure about going back to making beds. We intend to simplify bed making (hopefully) by using the seats as two singles and then just rolling out a couple of duvalays. Happy hunting though, that was half the fun for us.
