We have the Adria Twin 640 SL.
Has twin beds, but could be made into a big king size, but like the to not have to make up beds each evening. Also lots of storage space beneath the beds.
Just under 6.4 m.
I suppose the first question is how do you intend to use it as this may determine whether a PVC would be more suitable (ie like to go down narrow roads, out of the way, easier to drive) or a wider coachbuilt/a-class giving a bit more internal space but which may not allow you to access some places.
Hi have got a tracker eks this is my second tracker I have had five vans altogether over the last 20 years all with the same layout front lounge no problems with narrow roads as I live by the Lake District so I am used to them but due to age related problems it would be easier with fixed beds thank you for your reply terry.
We were looking at the EKS and decided on the Pilote 650GJ, single twin beds and plenty of storage practically the same size as your eks. I wanted a PVC but my wife wanted the slightly wider coachbuilt.
Hope you find what you want.
Had a look at the pilote on the internet looks nice we would ideally like a panel van but are a bit worried about the space as the eks is quite roomy inside but we are at the stage where we could do with fix beds this is our second eks so we obviously like them but just think fixed beds would be easier. Thank you for all your answers terry.
We can sleep on the sofas without swivelling the seats round I have made an extension for my side Chris my wife doesn’t need one it is more for the comfort of the fixed beds and the inconvenience of messing making them at home we have to have rempur mattresses for comfort due to problems Chris has got a duvalay topper but still not comfortable thank you terry.
A bit of background - we have been 'up and down' a few times! We went from Commer Autosleeper to a converted ambulance, to an Elddis 320 (dinette & side sofe) to a 5.99m Swift standard (same layout) to a 5.53m fixed French bed Rapido 709F which we loved it, but when we stared to do longer holidays and especially over winter we found the front kitchen a bit too cramped - it was so small the hob had to be installed with the burners front to back rather than side to side!). We intended to go back up to 6m but eventually hubby fell in love with a Rimor ... with a transverse bed (TB)... at 7.24m! It was great and we kept it for a number of years but were dithering about going to a PVC about 3 years later but couldn't at the time convince ourselves it was 'right' for us so we got a 6m Chausson Flash 04 (TB) but it was chubby at 2.3m which we found restricted us a bit on where we wanted to go so we 'downsized' to an Autocruise Accent PVC (front half-dinette and TB or rear lounge) 3 years later and whilst it was good it wasn't ideal.
A friend had a Globecar FamilyScout L which we thought was great so after a lot of though we eventually got one - it had an 'L' lounge and TB. We only changed as we found we didn't use the lounge area as much as we thought we would and getting in/out of the bed wasn't so easy for me, so last year we got our current Globecar Campscout with twin singles, or a massive king! It was ultimately the single beds that made us change and they are lovely and comfy and easy to get in/out of as they have steps up to them.
We use the bed area as a separate lounging/slobbing out space, in fact that's where we watch TV on a night with our dogs snuggling round us. It means we have 2 separate 'lounging' areas which is great when we want our own space (peace and quiet!) for a while, or want a nap without being disturbed. Some people see fixed beds as a waste of space, to us they are a vital part of the layout and make them a more versatile space. With the Campscout you're 'supposed' to lay with your heads to the rear (near the back doors) but we actually sleep the opposite way which means we use the washroom and kitchen/fridge cabinet sides as 'headboards' which works really well so getting in/out is a doddle.
Hi minxy girl thank you for the information we think we will probably go for a panel van so thank you for your help we like the Globecar and the adria twin we will have to do a bit more research this year ones again thank you for your help terry.
