Best compact motorhome: Chausson Flash 610
The French manufacturer packs in plenty of inventive ways to make the most of the living space in this four-berth compact coachbuilt, which comes on a Ducato or Transit base vehicle. The Chausson Flash 610 doesn’t feel compact and the sense of space, quality and specification makes it feel as if it belongs in a higher league. The Flash 610 has a big rear garage for bikes, with three large access doors. There’s also a non-slip floor and two 230V sockets. Above it is one of the largest wardrobes they’ve ever seen in a motorhome. Designed for year-round touring, the Flash 610’s full-width rear washroom has a frosted window and a huge, fully lined separate shower cubicle. There’s a generous 122-litre fresh-water tank, too, and diesel-powered blown-air heating. The spacious central dining and lounging space is among the Flash 610’s best features, with room for up to seven. At night, the table drops down electrically so you can make up a double bed, then, at the turn of another key, a second huge double descends from the ceiling. This is truly the consummate all-rounder, and a worthy winner.
Best family motorhome: Swift Escape 696
Flexibility is key to the Swift Escape 696’s enduring popularity – it offers spacious, well-priced accommodation for six to tour in comfort. There’s nothing dramatically new about the 696, but it has consistently combined quality, space, flexibility and affordability over the years. In the awards shortlist, Practical Motorhome asked: ‘Could this be the best family-friendly six-berther?’ Now we have the answer – and it’s a resounding yes.
Best luxury motorhome: Knaus Sky i 700 LEG
Any ’van considered for this gong must be packed with luxury features that lift it towards perfection. This restrained 7.44m four-berth from German maker Knaus has it all. The Sky i 700 LEG is a refined ’van with a good specification, masses of storage and genuine innovation. A proper master suite is a must in this class, and the 700 LEG delivers with attractively lit, fashionable rear twin beds that can be made into a large double. Forward of the bed is a flexible split washroom that converts into a full-width en suite. Up front, there’s a spacious drop-down double bed and a bright, airy six-seater lounge. There’s also a stylish and practical L-shaped kitchen, 190-litre fridge/freezer and a whopping rear garage. The 700 LEG is also the most affordable contender on their shortlist and with quality like this it’s easy to see why Knaus sells more motorhomes in Germany than any other maker.
