Motorhome Heavyweights Hit BIG for 2021

Motorhomes and the lifestyle they offer, are more popular than ever before; there has never been a better time to take a mini-break and explore the many wonderful attractions right here on your doorstep. For those of you who love to get away, with spontaneity but retaining home from home comfort, the motorhome lifestyle is unparalleled. It also enables those of you with other outdoor hobbies such as mountain biking, kayaking, or climbing to easily transport your equipment, still having the creature comforts of home at your disposal.

Renowned motorhome heavyweights, Chausson, AutoSleeper & Pilote, are all bringing new models and ranges to the market for 2021. All kitted out with jaw dropping luxurious fittings and interiors, gadgets and comforts, these new models will ensure you want for absolutely nothing.

The 788 is less than 7.2m in length and has a similar layout plus a transverse double-door washroom. This model is equipped with the ‘SmartLounge’ and ‘EasyBed’ as standard.

The ‘EasyBed’ system lets you raise or lower the bed to adjust the size of the garage area. Use a crank to adjust the size of the area; make it higher to transport bikes, or lower for bags and camping equipment.

 

The 644 less than 7m long, boasts a unique layout with five forward-facing seats for travel and a transverse double bed at the back that can be lifted to provide access to the garage underneath. The face-to-face lounge in the front includes five travel seats (with one facing backwards and a drop-down double bed.

 

The 777GA meanwhile, is similar to the 788 (again, less than 7.2m in length) with large twin beds (at 90cm wide) and a huge, 2159-litre garage.

Titanium is a legendary series from Chausson, combining great design with a full range of equipment. This exceptional series is available for the first time as a VIP version, a level of equipment which not only offers the essentials as standard but also a large number of features which will make your life easier on holiday.
