Automatic or Manual Motorhome ??
The answer is quite clear only Buy Automatic Motorhome !!
It can also be driven as a manual.
It means you can pass the keys to anyone and they will drive it
Also better resale value
All our Motorhomes are Automatic/Manual - Comformatic
What type of Beds are most popular ?
The most popular type of bed arrangements are either 2 single beds that convert to a double bed or fixed central bed at rear. The French bed (bed in corner) and East West bed are the beds that are NOT sought after. The French bed in the CI range was not popular and therefore discontinued 18 months ago. People are going away from this. It means if you wake up in the night and you are in the corner and you wish to use the bathroom then you have to wake up the person next to you to get out of the bed.
IT IS IMPORTANT
Only look for 2 Single beds or Fixed Central bed.

Which Engine 130Hp or 150Hp - ( We can supply both )
After visiting the Fiat Factory in Sevel Italy we were told the most popular engine is 130Hp,plenty of power and can easily maintain the maximum speed limit of 100km per hour for our motorhomes because they are all on a WOF ( Warrant of Fitness) The fiat technical team advised us 5 million have been built as of March 2015 and they are the most economical out of the range.The only time you need the 150hp engine is when the motorhome weight itself is 4500 kg plus (ALL OUR MOTORHOMES ARE 3500KG gvm ) so you dont need 150hp engine
Please be advised we have heard from customers some of our competitors have advised customers the 130hp is too small - INCORRECT.
99% of our Sales are all 130Hp. Ask any of our customers on the road about the performance.
PLEASE COME AND TAKE ONE FOR A DRIVE TO SEE HOW GOOD THEY REALLY ARE
