low, be­cause they’re in­side the slide-out, but they’re cer­tainly bet­ter than noth­ing at all. Only the rear seat has a floor level door that gives ac­cess to the un­der­seat ar­eas. The dinette doesn’t ap­pear to have any 240V/12V pow­er­points but there are some at floor level be­hind the rear seat in the bed­room area.

The rear is­land bed mea­sures a very de­cent 1.98x1.42m (6ft 6in x 4ft 8in) and fits neatly into its al­lo­cated space be­tween the end wall of the slide-out and the wardrobe on the for­ward side. That means there’s no bed­side shelves of any sort but there are two over­head lock­ers above the bed. What the slide-out does al­low with the east-west bed is a wall cabi­net un­der the win­dow, which is re­ally an ex­ten­sion of the kitchen bench. It comes with an as­sort­ment of draw­ers, com­part­ments and shelves which are quite handy. But, when the slide-out is closed, there’s no easy ac­cess to the rear bath­room.

There’s a 240V pow­erpoint set low down on the rear wall but I thought some­thing at bench level might have been more ap­pro­pri­ate, A flatscreen TV is fit­ted to the wall above the wall cabi­net and it can be seen quite eas­ily from the bed but less so from the dinette.

The rear bath­room has all the fea­tures you’d ex­pect – off­side shower cu­bi­cle, mid-wall van­ity cabi­net with cup­boards, over­head lock­ers and wash basin and the ubiq­ui­tous Thet­ford cas­sette toi­let in the near­side cor­ner. Above the loo is a towel rack on the side wall and a large mirror on the rear wall. Bath­room ven­ti­la­tion is sup­plied by a rear wall win­dow and a fan above the shower cu­bi­cle.
