The V-Line 635 is based on the 6.36m version of the ever-present Fiat Ducato, and this longest variant offers plenty of internal space. The usual swivelling cab seats turn to face a handy offside surface with a cupboard in its base. Next comes the washroom while, on the nearside, the kitchen on the opposite side. In the rear, the lounge provides a pair of inward-facing sofas.
The Carthago Malibu 540 DB is a compact van conversion that can travel four people and sleep two in the transverse rear bed.
The furniture is screwed together, as well as morticed, which is probably why it doesn’t rattle and feels built to last. The sprung hinges and positive-locking catches of the top lockers look like those found in a Carthago A-class at double this camper’s cost, while the padded ceiling is another classy touch. Then there are concertina-type blinds, automotive-style trim panels, etc.
Featuring a large rear lounge, the Auto-Trail V-Line 610 SE gives you more room to relax whilst still maintaining the drivability of a car thanks to a sub six metre chassis. This extra space inside this compact motorhome is the perfect spot from which to admire the views from the rear barn doors when you have found the perfect spot to park up.
The Fairford’s offside dinette can be used in two ways: conventionally, with parties facing each other, or leaning against the offside wall to look out of the nearside sliding door.
Two design elements make this possible. First, the back of the driver’s seat has been built up to create a proper backrest. In addition, there are back support cushions under the offside window.
Twist the cab chairs around in the Autosleeper Kemerton and the interior feels enormous. You could comfortably accommodate five for an evening.
The last 800mm or so of floorspace are devoted entirely to the washroom and the whole area is closed off behind a proper door. Close that behind you and there’s a deep mirror on the other side, but unlike the Topaz the Kemerton’s wardrobe is sited separately so you’ll need to grab your change of attire first. That’s hardly a hardship when you see how well laid out this bathroom is. On the offside is the wet area with shower (with separate showerhead) and tip-up basin behind tambour doors, while on the nearside is a bench cassette toilet.
The most compact motorhome in the brand’s range, the Malibu I 441 LE is just 6.67m long. With compact dimensions, it offers outstanding comfort and a practical payload within the popular 3,500kg weight class.
In the Malibu I 441 LE, you will find a spacious L-shaped lounge/seating area with a swivel-out shoe cabinet and holding system neatly integrated in the plinth of the bench seat.
Edwards very own Conversion, crafted by our talented designers and technicians. This VW Transporter has been converted to the highest standard to a 4 berth 4 travel pop top campervan, ideal for those winding roads in Scotland and Cornwall, or a comfortable cruise on the motorway on the continent thanks to Volkswagen’s staple Kombi van.
As you step on board the Hobby Vantana K65 DeLuxe , you’ll notice that important practical elements like the flyscreen for the sliding door and pleated blinds on the windows are in situ. The cabs captain’s seats swivel and the wall-mounted table has an extension leaf, while the rear bench comes with head restraints.
The Elddis Majestic 105 is low and its rear overhang is short too, so it handles in easy fashion. The 130bhp motor sees high-speed motorway work executed with little stress, and with plenty of power on tap for swift overtaking. Parking (or city driving) is not too much of a problem either as, designed to be compact, the 105 is slim at around 160mm (six inches-plus) narrower than a ‘standard’ coachbuilt and not much wider than a Boxer-based van conversion.
