The Chausson 620 (Ford) has been named as Non-Fixed Bed Motorhome of the Year 2016 by MMM magazine, the UK’s best-selling motorcaravan magazine, and Which Motorhome, the UK’s number one magazine for motorhome testing, at their prestigious 2016 awards.
The judges felt that the Chausson 620 deserved to win this category because it has one of the most innovative new layout ideas of recent years – the drop-down island bed. Based on Ford’s excellent new Transit, the 620 also features the superb washroom/garage combination that helped Chausson’s 610 become the Motorhome of the Year for 2015. Crucially, the new bed has all-round access, but without the need for an overly long vehicle that usually results with an island bed.
Editor of Which Motorhome and head of the judging panel, Peter Vaughan, commented: “The island bed in Chausson’s new 620 takes drop-down beds to a new level. It’s as good as any fixed island bed but rises out of the way, up to the ceiling, when you’re not sleeping in it.”
While Daniel Attwood, Managing Editor of MMM and Which Motorhome, added: “This is one of the most innovative and clever designs we’ve seen. When coupled to the Ford Transit base vehicle, this Chausson 620 will prove to be a superb motorhome for a touring couple.”
