This brand new 2020 747 offers comfortable sleeping arrangements for up to 6 people in the low profile motorhome.
This vehicle is automatic and has air conditioning in the cab area as well as an extra air conditioning unit in the main body of the van when connected to the mains electricity, an amazing addition for when we get that hot weather. It has six seat belts for travelling, two in the front cab area and four around the table making travelling with kids more enjoyable with activities. This motorhome is naturally light and airy as opposed to many others that have few windows and sky lights. At night all windows have black out blinds and fly screens to enable you to have a well deserved lie in. It does also have a wind out awning allowing for alfresco dining in the shade with our 6 outdoor reclining chairs and a table. The bike rack which is fitted has room for 4 bikes (max weight 75kgs).
If you find yourself in need of some relaxation in the evenings, the U-shaped lounge provides the perfect space for everyone to sit and socialise, watch TV or a DVD etc. and doubling as another double bed or two singles come night. The double dinette offers seating next to the kitchen, with a mounted table making it ideal for meal time.
To the front of the vehicle you have an electric drop down bed, to the front of the cab you have 3 sky lights that all have black out blinds. The dinette area easily converts into another double bed. Furthermore, the motorhome is also well equipped with a kitchen area offering a fridge with compact freezer, 3 gas stoves, gas oven and grill, cooking utensils, crockery & cutlery. Just opposite the kitchen area you have a central bathroom with shower, sink & toilet. The shower has a folding door to separate it from the toilet area.
There is plenty of storage throughout the vehicle including a hanging space towards the rear of the vehicle.
Underneath the U shaped lounge with an exterior entrance is a storage area where the outdoor furniture will be located along with a soft broom, bucket and awning handle. There will also be room to store some of your personal items.
