Quite impressed with the looks of the "Chausson Suite" featured in this months Practical motorhome. Innovative design.

Island/walk around kitchen, push button bed in front which lowers to either shoulder height (so as to make up 2nd bed underneath) or knee height for easier access for 2 berth only.

only 6m in length

Roomy bathroom/toilet area at rear. £37k ish?

Anyone see it at Dusseldorf?

Really neat layout. My only concern is that you can either sit, or sleep - when the bed's down there's nowhere to sit while waiting for the kettle to boil etc.

Ah, and no sign of grill or oven either. If they can overcome these two obstacles then I'd certainly be interested in that type of layout as I like the idea of an instant bed, but have never subscribed to the fixed bed ethos.

We saw it in Peterborough last weekend. Really loved it, but 2 gas burners is as much as you get cooking wise. No grill, oven or room for a microwave. It's such a shame, but we'd be no better off than we would be camping. Also, no draining board and nowhere to rest a removeable one. Rather than have a space you can walk around at the far end of the kitchen, I would rather they had put a full cooker in. Then you could do away with the hob

we noticed that there was very few cupboards. It seems like you are losing too many essentials for the benefit of a walk round kitchen sink and fridge!

I was impressed by it at the NEC in February - except that in places the headroom is poor, specifically under the drop down bed. OK, I'm 6' 2", but it's a point to watch if you're tempted.

I tried the seats for comfort and felt as though I was sitting on a bench they were very hard and upright.
We thought that wrap around seating would of been a better use of space

That forward island kitchen layout has been used before in the 2006 Giottiline Genetics K900 A Class, so it's not as innovative as you are led to believe. Unless this oddball layout attracts a lot of UK buyers, which it obviously failed to do in 2006-2007, these Chaussons might not be all that easy to resell.

These two things would make it a no-no for us.

Not that we're looking for a new van Embarassed

We saw this model a few weeks ago at the local dealer.

The layout was very different from anything we have ever seen before and the length was appealing. They have certainly fitted a lot into such a small space but certain things would make it a no no for us.

The lack of grill and oven is a big disadvantage, there is also a lack of storage space, we tend to go for extended holidays rather than weekends so storage is essential for us.

We were also very surprised with the firmness of the upholstery.
