Welcome to the forum.

There is a full review of your proposed van here (on our old site) that explains your question:-
https://www.motorhomefacts.com/reviews-show-216.html

It's well worth reading as it discusses other positives and negatives.


But before you visit, be sure to bookmark this page on our new(ish) website as the old site holding the review is moribund.

Hi Jon and welcome to MHF, ad says it has rear seat belts, unusual for a 2 berth van.

This ad says 4 berth

The review that I gave Jon the link to describes the four seat belts for driving, together with a double bed at the rear and a single bed at the front, meaning three berths.

But he warns that "the front seating area can with determination and imagination, be turned into an extra bed, if you wish to carry the additional fairly bulky extra cushions."

I guess this means that the member who owned one (and generally liked it) says there are only three berths for sleeping.

hi
thanks for your input on this, i have read the review prior to making this post but wondered if the model had changed as both vans had a wine rack under the table and a few other differences.. guess i will have to go and view it and see. i don't mind a 3 berth as i was looking at an chausson allegro 94 similar layout but I'm led to believe dethleffs is a better built van?
thanks again
jon

An interesting comparison, let us know your thoughts etc after you have seen them both. Hope it is not at Highbridge.

Hi Bristoljon

We have a 2009 version of this van which has a different layout of the lounge area with the Seats running along the side of the van with a table between. The front lounge area has an extra odd shaped cushion which with the normal ones enable you to make up a double bed across the van. It has the fixed bed in the back right .with the toilet back left.

We like the van very much however I would say that there is one concern about the unit you are looking at based on our experience. We have a Solar Panel, a 4.5m Awning, a second leisure battery, a 1m satellite dish system, a Towbar assembly and carry a spare tyre as the unit does not come with a Spare wheel, We travel with very little fresh water to service the loo (125ltr tank) and nothing in the waste tank (90Ltr tank) if possible as unless we are very careful we can be very easily be over weight. So our concern is that with the additional weight of 2 more seat belt assemblies unless the 2 additional passengers were very small children we would be over weight, If we filled the water and fuel tanks right up and had a f ull waste tank I woud have to leave the other half behind as well as her clothes etc. Now theres a thought!!!!!

I note it is supposed to have a spare wheel and it has Air Assisters on the rear suspension so has the unit been uprated to carry more than its originally supplied capacity.. If so you need to check the V5 and if it is displaying a Tax disc and it is only £160 that would mean it has been uprated. above 3500kg and so requires a C1 licence.

As I said we are very pleased with our van which is very well built and we would certainly consider another one if anything happened to ours.

Good luck with your search.

Hope you found this useful.

Doug
