The Challenger Prium, Chausson Sweet, Flash 10, Burstner Ixeo Time 585/595 and Autostar 58 all have the same type of layout.
Sweet Mini was great because it was shorter, but i just couldn't live with outside storage the size of a biscuit tin. Fridge was also too small.
The maxi had everything for us.
Flash 10 didn't have enough kitchen worktop (none, actually) and the Burstner Time 585 had a fairly small bathroom where you leant on the sink while on the toilet. The burstner lounge was great, and the kitchen on the 585 was the biggest we've seen for workspace.
on the Sweet / Priums, if you bring the bed right the way down, its a lot of fiddling putting the table down, dropping the cushions and backrests etc. I've never like having to make up my bed, and with this you don't make up your bed, but you have to 'make up' underneath it. So, we are very happy to drop it down just to the headrest level and then use the ladder.
I always thought i had a 'cheap' van before with the Rimor, but was quite surprised to find that the fridge wasn't auto-power-select, was surprised that the Truma heater didn't have anti-frost water drop, etc (stuff the Rimor had as standard).
Does anybody have a picture of how the lounge cushions fold into a bed, because we cant fathom it !
