this is the 2014 luxury motorhome of the year luxury being classified as vehicles over 75,000 pounds and lifted well into that category at nearly 140,000, but you get a lot of Motorhome for your money underneath the gold exterior which is standard on this Frankia Platinum Edition is a 5.3 ton Mercedes Sprinter chassis with the top of the range 190 bhp v6 turbo diesel engine has a six-cylinder diesel engine it drives the rear wheels through a 7-speed automatic gearbox and then on the conversion side you've got just about every option loaded onto this vehicle as standard equipment that includes three leasure batteries an inverter system roof air conditioning satellite TV you name it it's got it you could probably get eight people around the table in this leather lined lounge with these rather nice swivel cap seats in the front and then a frankly a tradition is this sliding table not only does it extend with wise, if you're dining for a family, but you can put it wherever you like and there's two rear travel seats and then when you arrive on site you've got out of the eating with and gas or mains operation for a really warm comfortable environment without the dryness associated with blown air systems you've got a big fridge freezer on this side, but the main kitchen unit with this rather nice chorion style work top is on on the UK near side because the vehicle comes with a choice of left or right hand drive unusually for a German van you get this rather fancy cooker with mains hot plate grill and separate oven and then there are things like the twin sinks and the worktops. I'm often slot in for a bit of extra preparation space draws off all soft closing and there's a bin and bottle holder in there to moving back through the vehicle you've got another touch here that makes the Frankie a rather special and you won't find it in most of the opposition and the whole bathroom wall swings out to shut off the back of the vehicle and create a separate ensuite.
I just step through the toilet area door and now this back half the vehicle is entirely separate from the front like two rooms, if you want to make three rooms a sliding wall then separates the bedroom from the bathroom. So, now you've got three entirely separate rooms in the motorhome in this area you've got the usual cassette toilet a very nicely designed hand Basin area with soap dispensers and even a little shaving mirror then on the other side there's an entirely separate shower and plenty of space in there at the back the twin single beds aren't too high although they are over a full-sized garage and there's this neat step that just folds down to make access into the bed as easy as being a home, if you prefer a double this part here just slides out and they provide a little ladder to make access easy into what is then a really king-size double bed the whole width of the vehicle so. I bet there's probably something almost seven foot square there's all manner of hatches and doors around the outside of this motorhome starting at the front right hand side the gas Locker and moving back is storage there in the double floor with a fold away shelf, if you want to put smaller on the door into the living areas got a bin on it and it shuts with a nice solid tongue next hatchback and you've got us a spare cassette so, if you're away from sight sergey's renting the searches for awhile that increases your independence then one of the key things with this platinum edition is all the complicated electronics the inverters the three batteries all that is in this next block then there's a big garage across the back plenty of room to get a small motorbike or bicycles in there and unusually it has a side door and this big lift up hatch across the rear moving down to the nearside one of the options fitted on this particular vehicle is the e5 fuel cell again giving you more independence from hookups and site facilities a bit more storage in the next hatch toilet servicing pretty standard servicing again for your how the heating system in there, but then one of the features that we really like on this vehicle open this hatch you've got your fresh water hose and filling already attached your mains electric lead already attached and you dump house already attached.
So, no fiddling about looking for things in the back of the garage it's all already there all in the one place and the leads and houses just drop out through a hole in the floor and finally yet more storage you.
