On an is­land

Go! Camp & Drive - - CARAVAN TEST -

The Com­fort’s is­land bed is to the left of the door as you en­ter. The bed is placed cross­wise, and when you look at the nose, the head is against the left panel. So the per­son who sleeps on the fur­thest side must walk around the bed. The cor­ners at the foot of the bed have been cut away di­ag­o­nally, to al­low more stand­ing and walk­ing space around it. It’s 1,4 m wide (stan­dard king-size) and 1,88 m long.

On ei­ther side of the bed there’s a small read­ing light, with an ad­justable head, so you can shine it di­rectly on your book. The switches for both lights are at the base of the light, and you can eas­ily reach them from the bed. Above the lights are two open racks that look al­most like the slots of a post­box – a con­ve­nient place to store your book be­fore call­ing it a night. Above these are two larger cup­boards, each with its own door ac­cess­ing the same space.

At the foot of the bed there’s a cup­board in each cor­ner. The right-side one has six shelves with enough pack­ing space for any­thing from T-shirts to socks, and the one at the nose has even more stor­age space.

One of the three LED lights in the car­a­van is placed to the left of the cup­boards, above the bed. Be­sides the opaque cov­ers on these lights to pre­vent them from blind­ing you, the dim­mer works as soon as you press your fin­ger on the switch. A power socket (220 V) for one three-point and two dou­ble-point plugs is placed next to the fur­thest sleeper, at the same height as the bed. There’s also a USB socket. >
