Fresh on the fleet for 2019 is new Attenborough, an Auto Roller 746. Almost a fusion of Drake and Hudson, this van arguably offers the most space of all of our vehicles. With the traditional huge over cab bed, open plan layout of midships dinette and rear U-shaped lounge, this van could almost be a hotel on wheels!
Up front, we have a 130bhp 2.3 litre powerplant and six speed manual gearbox to take you up hill and down dale with ease. Along with the usual refinements of cruise control/speed limiter, multimedia entertainment system, air conditioning, reversing camera, and captains seats, this is an exceptionally comfortable way to make the most of any road trip.
Aft of the cab is a dinette, seating four around a removable table. These seats are also the four designated passenger seats. Above the cab is the first of the beds. Accessed by a clip on ladder, this is one of the biggest overcab beds in the business - and has a panoramic window for plenty of light, and a safety net to prevent unwanted excursions. Track curtains also separate this bed off from the rest of the van. Downstairs, the dinette area can be turned into a small double by lowering the table and extending the seats.
The galley kitchen features plenty of storage and workspace, a three-burner gas hob, gas oven/grill, and a generous fridge with freezer compartment.
The roomy washroom has a cassette toilet, sink with hot and cold running water, and a separate shower compartment. Hot water is provided via the Truma Combi (electricity or gas) boiler.
The rear of the van features the signature U-shaped rear lounge. This lovely seating area is complemented by windows on three sides, and also has a removable freestanding table. Additional low level bunks may be formed in this area in the shape of two singles, or one grand double.
There is plenty of storage on board, in the form of a wardrobe with drawers below, high-level storage lockers, storage for bedding beneath the rear lounge, and external locker running the full width of the van.
As usual, this van is fully insulated and features LED lighting, solar panel, concertina blinds/flyscreens, power management system and a comprehensive inventory to ensure your comfort. On the Optional Extras list for this van we can also offer the 4-bike rack for the whole family to take their cycles.
