First look, October 08

Lounge

The front lounge is comfortable, but it would be a struggle to fit six people around the table. The rear dinette provides the extra space you'll need for the kids. The rear dinette converts into another bunk, too. Storage here is excellent.

Kitchen

Opposite is the kitchen, which has a separate oven and grill, microwave, a 112-litre Thetford fridge and a four-burner hob. It's generous with workspace, and the light-coloured surfaces look good, too.

Washroom

Midway along the offside is the washroom, which, though small, is well equipped, with Thetford's new electric-flush toilet and a separate shower cubicle.

Beds

This van benefits from one of the big design additions to the 2009 ranges: triple fixed bunks.

Storage

In a clever design addition, the floor of the bottom bunk lifts up to create a large locker which can be accessed from the outside of the van.
