If you are looking to buy a motorhome, you may be overwhelmed by the sheer choice of makes and models.
But there is one manufacturer you certainly don’t want to pass by – and that is the renowned Auto-Sleeper brand. Some of the following frequently asked questions might help to explain why.
Why buy an Auto-Sleeper?
The British manufacturer has established an enviable reputation as one of the finest builders of van conversion and coachbuilt motorhomes.
That reputation is not without good cause since it has been confirmed by motorhome owners themselves. Readers of Practical Motorhome, for example, voted Auto-Sleeper the best manufacturer of motorhomes in 2019, taking the laurels in the owner-satisfaction award, in an annual competition the magazine runs jointly with the Camping and Caravanning Club.
The company has more than 58 years’ experience in building motorhomes, with a focus on every aspect of their design and ensuring that the interiors take full advantage of every inch of space.
What powers an Auto-Sleeper?
Auto-Sleepers typically come with a choice of powertrains:
- fitted to both its van conversions and coachbuilt models, many Auto-Sleepers are powered by Peugeot’s proven 160bhp turbodiesel Euro 6 engine; or
- if you prefer the option of an automatic transmission, you have the choice of the 130bhp/150bhp Fiat Ducato Comfort-Matic engine;
- Mercedes coachbuilt models are fitted with the German brand’s 163bhp Next Generation Euro 6.2 turbodiesel 163bhp engine; and
- with the option of that powertrain’s 7-speed fully automatic gearbox.
How extensive is the Auto-Sleeper range?
Not only is there an extensive range of Auto-Sleepers from which to choose but new models and updated versions of current favourites are launched each year.
Presently, for example, there are seven different Peugeot van conversions, six Peugeot coachbuilts and five coachbuilt, Mercedes-powered motorhomes.
Which Auto-Sleeper is for me?
Your choice of motorhome, of course, is a highly personal one and depends on how you intend to use it, the number of passengers you may need to accommodate (and the number of berths for them to sleep in), and the interior space and layout you are likely to need.
You might want a motorhome that you – and a partner perhaps – are likely to use mainly for touring and for exploring the highways and byways of new and unfamiliar places. In the way of many adventures, these may lead you along narrow, winding lanes one minute and through the congestion of busy city streets the next. That is when you are likely to want a smaller, more manoeuvrable motorhome.
If you want a luxurious second home on wheels that you are likely to use as your more permanent base on holidays and short breaks, then a larger motorhome might be the order of the day.
