This is a cracking motorhome in the classically British luxury two-berth idiom.
The extra space of this 2013 model has been used to great effect, with long beds and a spacious lounge, as well as an excellent kitchen and washroom.
Overall, Broadway EL Duo is handsome, with smooth, tough GRP sides and large windows at the sides and rear as befits a rear lounge motorhome.
When the remote central locking is unlocked, the external step deploys smartly and the LED awning light comes on.
Once inside the Hartal door, the cab lies to your left, beneath a large, opening skylight – the passenger cab seat swivels, but the driver''s doesn''t because the washroom is immediately behind. The washroom extends along the offside, followed by the wardrobe.
Opposite, on the nearside, is a long kitchen unit, and at the rear is the U-shaped lounge, with long settees, big windows, overhead skylight and high-level cupboards all round. As with houses, a decision to purchase a motorhome (rightly or wrongly!) is often made within minutes of entry. First impressions count.
On that score, modern Auto-Sleeper coachbuilts rate highly with their conservative target audience, and all have similar decor.
A rear lounge layout is particularly appealing in out-of-season camping – you can have a grand view of the cold, wet, British weather through the big picture windows, but it hardly affects you!
Bearing in mind that this is a two-berth, two travel seat motorhome, you each have a huge settee on which to lounge.
The really impressive kitchen runs for nearly two metres along the nearside – there''s even a large slide-out worktop extension.
Below is a black, curved-front, 96-litre Thetford SES fridge, then comes a stainless-steel sink with mixer tap and glass lid.
Has the Premium Pack fitted, giving cab air-conditioning, cruise control, twin airbags and the very desirable rear-view camera monitor, attached to the mirror. Both seats are multi-adjustable and each has a singl
