ttcharlie We were advised to have 1 extra birth than you actually need so you have somewhere to place stuff whilst asleep.

There are four of us but and we ended up with a 7 birth rollerteam 700!
Not sure how that happened but the 67 cuddly toys do need somewhere to sleep.

mickdee thanks for all of your replies, giving me some research to do on the internet, one thing i noticed is no one has recommended an integrated model, all semi integrated, does anyone know of an integrated model for 5 or 6 berth? Once again thanks for your help

In fact, they live din it for 8 weeks whilst they had major building work done on their house. The kids didn't want to move back into the house!!!!

I should have said that they have 4 kids! 2 of them are quite ill, but the van gives them complete freedom.

Here are some pics:

suedew We have an Escape 686, youngest grandson sleeps on the dinette bed, his parents in the overcab and us on the back lounge. However, no external locker, the 696 with rear bunks might be one to look at, 6, 3 point seatbelts too.
Watch the payload, take the van to a weighbridge with all the family when test driving, will give you an idea of whether payload is sufficient.

davesport Hymer B644 has 6 belted seats & six beds.

5 people need a lot of gear. Contemplate your payloads carefully before parting with any dosh. The tripe printed about payload in the sales bumph often bears no relation to reality.

Good luck in your quest, D.

BritStops We've been quite happy with the Chausson Flash 03. 6 berth with tranverse bunks at the back or larger garage with bottom bunk folded up. Dinette has two extra full belts plus two lap belts for rear-facing seats.

Only downside is the double bed that results from converting the dinette is not the biggest, so if that's where you'll sleep once having put the kids to bed over the cab and in the bunks, you might need to check its size.

5 berth motorhome

Hi, I'm looking for some advice re a new motorhome, I currently own a 2007 sl514 hymer but due to a growing family - there will soon be 5 of us, I am looking to trade up to a 5 berth. So I'm looking for a camper with sleeping capacity for 5, and importantly seat belt capacity for 5. I'm looking for a late model or new camper preferably integrated, I've been searching the Internet but am finding it difficult to find 5 berth campers (6 berth would also work) does anyone have any recommendations- your help much appreciated - thanks
