Motorhomes Caravans & Destinations


It’s big, beautiful, and it even has room to pack a small car into the garage. Zion Motorhomes has raised the bar with the latest Palace model, the 90G. Claire Smith takes a look.

The Palace 90G is built on an Iveco Daily 70C16 chassis with a 210 HP engine, an eight-gear torque converter automatic transmissi­on, and front and rear Vb-air suspension.

At 9500mm long, 2400mm wide, and 3640mm high, everything inside is just that little bit bigger than your average RV. It does mean you’ll need a Class 2 driver’s licence to drive it.

Inside, there is seating for six around the table, plus both cab seats swivel fully into the lounge. The kitchen is spacious and practical, and offers plenty of prep space with a large 1740mm x 1000mm mineral bench. There’s a three-burner hob and gas oven with grill, and opposite the cooking zone is a full-sized 190L Dometic fridge/freezer unit.

The island north-south queen bed is at the rear of the Palace 90G. The bedroom is elevated with two steps leading up to the bed, which features a five-zone comfort cold foam mattress, and at 2000mm long by 1630mm wide, it’s certainly roomy. For a spot of stargazing, there’s a large overhead skylight.

The split bathroom is located between the kitchen and the bedroom. On the driver’s side, the huge shower includes a slide-tap and space to store all the essentials. On the opposite side is the extra-large vanity unit that features a big sink, with drawers and mirrored, Led-lit cabinets above. The bathroom can be closed off from the bedroom and kitchen with sliding doors.

Outside, there is a 370L freshwater and a 250L grey tank, and a 250L black tank. It has four 130W solar panels, two 210AH lithium batteries, and a 3000W inverter. One of the defining features of the 90G model is the incredibly big garage. In fact, it’s big enough to hold a small smart car, to the max dimensions of 2.75m x 1.56m. An additional, smaller tunnel locker runs the width of the vehicle, handy for storing long items such as skis or fishing poles. Other notable features include a hot/cold retractabl­e shower, LED daytime running lights, an electrical­ly extendable awning with LED lighting, automatic hydraulic legs, and satellite dish.

The Morelo Palace 90G has been designed so that its owners can come ‘home’ at the end of each day. And all those little extras add up to a lot of luxury, it means those lucky enough to own one can enjoy that travel in maximum comfort and relaxation. Find out more at
