Hi Guys
I've been following practical MH for some time now, been great so far.
We have a small camper but are looking to go a bit bigger and have some quite specific questions.
We really like the flexible layout of the Swift Rio 340 with the rear lounge with drop down bed over and front dinette. We also like the compact dimensions.
We need 4 seatbelts, 4 berths, drop down bed that can be permanently made up, oven, shower without curtain (the Rio 340 lacks this and is the only real weak point). Other bits and bobs we can add if not standard such as Solar, towbar, LPG tank for cooker/heating.
2 questions:
1. Is there another compact MH (< 6.5m) with this layout (and an oven) or is it a unique layout?
2. Can the RIo 340 be changed to include a separate ecocamel shower head and a washroom without the shower curtain and still be under warranty (the bathroom is still compact but this is the compromise workaround).
Thanks guys, I've been looking for ages, purchase next year.
Much appreciate your feedback.
Richard

Have a look at A-classes with drop down beds in the cab. They are much more expensive new than a Rio but second hand, they are a great nearly new buy.

You will probably only get an oven in a UK van, the continentals don't seem to fit them. You could always buy a portable oven, but that would only be electric, so would need hook up

Most of the UK spec Hymers come with an oven now, and many had ovens fitted as optional extras. Chirene is right in that continental spec vans tend not to include an oven as standard.

the nearest equivalents would be the Hymer Compact range or its twin the Burstner Brevio...
in fact, just checked the Hymer site and this seems to have disappeared for 2016, tho the Burstner models are still there.....the 646 being the nearest exact model.....
rear lounge makes a double of 194x154 cm
drop down is 188x148 cm

Rio bed sizes are....
Rear Double 1.93m x 1.26m
6' 4" x 4' 2"
Drop Down Bed 1.83m x 1.20m
6' 0" x 3' 1

so quite a bit more 'cosy'.....

you can domthe price/spec comparisons....
