Two lounge areas, multiple sleeping berths and plenty of storage space make this a great ’van for a touring family

Review of Sprite Musketeer EB

Review of Sprite Musketeer EB

The Musketeer EB is light enough to be towed by most family cars and small enough to store on a driveway. It is priced as an entry-level van but rivals many mid-market models in specification and styling, making it great value for money.

Review of Swift Voyager 695EL

Review of Swift Voyager 695EL

This motorhome has a lot of family appeal. It’s well styled with lots of finesse, has as spacious a lounge as you’ll find anywhere in mid-sized coachbuilt territory and has a goodsized separate dining area.

Live-in test Autocruise Starburst

It’s smart, well put-together, offers masses of storage space, is nicely equipped and the washroom’s great. The Starburst has been a strong seller for Autocruise in the past and in its 2010 incarnation, this only looks set to continue.

If you’re impressed by solid build, good storage and a fixed bed, end washroom layout that’s quickly become a classic, you’ll like the new 550.

First Test Sterling Europa 390

First Test Sterling Europa 390

We love this Sterling because it’s bold enough to turn away from predictable and sometimes plain boring interior décor and cabinetry themes, and try something different. And that’s what the Europa is all about: different, modern – and refreshingly so. It’s a two-berth that’s truly trendy.

The layout’s right, the spec’s right, the price and the weight excel, too. All positives seems to come together in the Sprite Musketeer TD. It’s the most caravan you’ll find in any 4.74 metres.

Mid-size two berths are an option for couples seeking to economise without compromising on comfort. We compare two in a close contest.

The heritage of the name stretches back over 60 years, and in our book what distinguishes the brand from old is that it represents better value than ever.

A well thought-out interior layout makes the E695 a good choice for a growing family. Roomy on site but easily manageable on the road.

Live-In Test : Autocruise Accent

Live-In Test : Autocruise Accent

The level of thought and innovation in the Accent is really pleasing. The Autocruise designers have taken the increasingly popular van conversion layout with a rear double bed and thought hard about how they can improve on it.

The longitudinal rear bed is an innovation that brings a much-loved coachbuilt layout to a van conversion without enormous compromise. This is a real feat of ergonomic engineering from Autocruise.

Live-in Test : Sprite Musketeer TD

This a great starter van for families on a budget and those with a standard towcar. The layout is its unique selling point and it has decent storage and kit. It should be on the shortlist of all young families who are new to touring.

Live-In Test : Sprite Musketeer TD

WHEN you were a child, if your grandparents owned a caravan it was probably a Musketeer. First introduced in 1958, this classic name is now making a comeback in the new Sprite range for 2010.
