This model can travel 4 people, while different versions of the Sunlight models allow for accommodation from 3 to even 6 people. However, it is worth mentioning that if more than 4 people are to travel in a motorhome, you need to buy a safety package with additional seat belts and headrests.

Decent standard

The manufacturer ensures that the compartments are ventilated and the mattresses are comfortable. The T-series models are also equipped with an extendable table.

Higher class at extra cost

Paying less than 1,500 euros, you can replace the car with a model with an engine capacity of. 2.3 liters with the capacity of 130 hp, and for 2,700 euros you can even have a version with 148 hp.

The option referred to in the catalog as "rich finish shower" was priced at EUR 400. You also need to pay extra for additional beds (in some variants even folding beds are available) and wardrobes.

For the kitchen you can order, among others oven, extractor hood and fridge with separate freezer compartment. Also available as options are: underfloor heating, additional electric heating and a rear view camera.
