    Just looking for a motorhome with

    1. Twin sofas long enough to put your feet out straight (we like to lounge)

    2. Drop down bed or fixed rear bedroom but not both and not a French bed

    3. Seperate shower

    4. Oven but not a low sitting one

    5. Decent size fridge

    We've been looking for this kind of layout for a while but can't seem to find one :RollEyes:

    Any ideas?

    Rob&Janex:-)

    We were there yesterday, some nice vehicles but nothing suited us, oh and some vans had not been looked after. There was a van silverline I think which looked like a funeral parlour inside:xrofl:

    The problem may be "not a low oven" and may have to be a tag axle, eg Auto-trail Frontier Chieftain or Comanche.

    It does seem the right layout for us with the Autotrails, just didn't think I would be driving something so long.

    We were parked next to one on a aire in France in June, looked lovely. I think the outside lockers had double doors or something different about them.

    whatever you do...weigh it before signing the deal. nothing worse than a large van without a practical payload.

    OK. If you could live with a full width rear toilet and shower room an Autocruise Augusta may fit the bill. We looked at one up in Scotland but can't remember how long the front benches were.
    Webb's in Warminster have one on the market just now.

    and a youtube video on an older one.

    Cheers for the video:xThumb: I've just been looking at the Auto-Trail Imala 2015:xThumb:, looks very good but guess we'd be making the bed up at the back as not sure of the size of the over cab bed.

    We had a very similar wish list to you, it was a choice between a Kon-Tiki or Comanche and we settled for the Comanche. Have never regretted it and don't find the length to long. Lounging on the bench seats is excellent, especially when the weather is rubbish. Have you looked round Dolphin Motorhomes at Bursledon (J8 M27) or Freeborn Motorhomes (next to St Marys Stadium) Southampton.

    Rob ours nearly meets your wish list although at first glance you wouldn't think so, we have the L shaped lounge at the front and when you turn both cab seats round they line up lovely with the side sofas so you can recline your seat and put your feet up. I know there are a few like this so maybe you just haven't realised, ours is the Adria Mateix 680SP?
