Now I know that at 6'2" ish and 18 stone (ish!) I'm not the smallest chap in the world, but I'm also not exactly a giant, plenty of others are a similar size to myself or larger. I went into a couple of dealers today, just for a quick browse - vague vague thoughts of getting a PVC or a narrow bodied A class in a few years time. For exploring down the little country roads I always think the width of the van is much more critical than the length. So, first off, an AutoSleepers dealer, with lots of PVCs, all based on the Peugeot Boxer - which as we all know is fundamentally the same as the Fiat Ducato and Citroen Relay, which between them make up the vast majority of PVCs. Ahh - my head brushes the ceiling inside and smacks the light fittings. Not good, don't want to stoop. Loo/shower cubicles are small, but I expected that. So, pop in to a Hymer dealer. Ahh yes, the Germans are a tall bunch, they must design them with themselves in mind surely? Lots of big posh Hymers in stock, but I really want something not much wider than a PVC. Narrow bodied A class would do the job - transverse bed over the cab, no good, not wide enough. Duomobil with longitudinal beds over the cab - still not long enough! Fixed beds in the back are an option but take up a lot of space, and even then some aren't too generous. Plus the shower cubicles on some of the Hymers I could only stand up straight in by having my head poking up into the skylight - not exactly convenient for hair washing! - and the cubicles were teeny tiny, a real squeeze for a (ahem!) larger chap such as myself. So all you small and svelte types, rejoice in your much wider choice of motorhomes!
