Autotrail Frontier Savannah.

Hello All,
Has anyone ordered, or already bought a Autotrail Savannah or any model in the new Frontier range.
I would like to use this post to exchange ideas, problems or concerns.

I am very interested in changing to the Savannah, which is a complete new model and replaces the Cheyenne 740S. My first impressions are very good, with even better build quality and more kit as standard. If anyone has experienced any floor delamination, Autotrail have assured me that this has now been resolved in production.
I do not have any connections with Autotrail other than owning one.
Regards,
sennen523

Hi Sennen

Nice Motorhomes, but have not got any operational experience of them.

Best Regards

Make sure the beds are long enough for you before you buy.

Hi,
We got our Frontier Scout in June this year and have been very pleased with it.
I have only looked at the new Autotrail range on the internet but they do look as if they have made on or two changes to them such as rounding off the corners in the kitchen and changing the upholstery.

We are calling into Brownhills tomorrow on our way to Rutland so,hopefully,we can have a nosy at some of the new models!

To sum up I think the quality of Autotrail is very good and I would certainly buy another (although it will not be tomorrow!).

Hi pomme1,
I know what you mean about the beds on the 740S. I have looked at the Savannah beds and they are OK.

Kind Regards,
sennen523.

How tall are you? I had a look around one of them at the NEC and found I was scraping my head on the roof in the shower. There's an elevated floor in the whole of the bedroom that didn't leave much headroom. I'm 6ft tall...hardly out of the ordinary. Don't think it would be enough to stop me buying one in the future, but be aware.

I've got a chieftain on order - should be getting it in February/march.
I like:
- The transverse bed
- The garage.
- large kitchen
- Sep toilet
- Old style heating arrangements using a radiator
- The space

I don't like:
- Not being able to have a factory fitted additional battery
- The flimsy smelly new style Thetford toilet
- The lack of headroom in the shower (but I've got over it)
- The new locker doors
- Hook up arrangements - socket now buried in the back of a locker. I've now got to get on my hands and knees in the pouring rain to plug in! Why?


The Savannah looks good to me- spacious! Only thing that stops me getting it is the lack of a fixed bed 'cause I'm lazy!

HI Bacchus and thanks for your post.
I know what you mean with the EHU socket in a locker, it doesn't seem sensible, although you would probably get used to it.

I haven't heard about the problems with the Thetford toilet.

With a 2nd Leisure battery, It's very easy for a dealer to fit one as long as they are both 110Ah. Perhaps you could do a deal with your dealer?

The Savanna has got fixed beds, but singles.
Hope you enjoy your new Autotrail.
Kind Regards,
