It’s time for our next instalment of Meet the Motorhome. This week’s feature is one of our most popular, and spacious motorhomes for hire: the Sun Living A49DP – or as it’s better known to the team by, Sun. The nickname didn’t necessarily stem from the A49DP’s beaming and light interior – more the luck of the licence plate lottery – but we thought “when the shoe fits”!
Our Adria Sun Living A49DP is 7.2 metres of functional, family fun packaged in a big motorhome that’s as stylish as it is spacious. We hire this motorhome as a six-berth because it sleeps and has belted seating for six adults or children and, weighted at under 3500kg, you can still drive it on a standard driving licence – making it the perfect choice for your family motorhome getaway.
Why do our customers love the Adria Sun Living A49DP so much? Because, between them, they’ve taken it on road-trips through France, enjoyed a stint of Glastonbury glamping in it, toured the Lake District and trekked through the Brecon Beacons. It’s proved equally perfect in each location, acting as a brilliant family motorhome and even as a holiday home on wheels for six adults celebrating graduation. After spending as much time in motorhomes as we have, we know that six adults in a motorhome sounds like a recipe for a lot of stepped-on toes, but Sun copes beautifully and provides all the essential comfort needed.
The only arguments we’ve heard about in Sun were about the sleeping arrangements. It seems there’s often a battle to see who bags the over cab double bed or the spacious double in the rear, over the garage. Mind you, there are no losers as the dinette converts very easily into the third double, and that’s more than adequate for a two-week European jaunt.
Under the hood
Built on a Fiat chassis and powered by a 2.3l Fiat engine, we reckon you’ll average 25-30 mpg, and the cruise control certainly helps that. Adria have designed the Sun Living A49DP with an exceptionally generous garage that you’ll have no problem fitting six bikes in, and that’s in addition to the camping table and chairs that we add as standard with your hire. So if you’re considering an expedition to the Alps for some climbing we’re confident you’ll fit all your climbing gear without any problem and still have space for the barbecue and gazebo.
Take a look inside
Inside this comfort class motorhome, if you don’t feel like barbecuing, the kitchen is equipped with a three-ring gas hob and microwave oven, as well as a fridge, freezer, storage cupboards and a sink with hot and cold water that, like the heating, is powered by both gas and electricity so that you’ll have all the home comforts whether you hook up in a campsite or enjoy living off-grid for a few days. Naturally, we supply all the cutlery and utensils you’ll need, as well as a kettle for the all-essential morning cuppa.The bathroom in our Adria Sun Living A49DP is laid out with Adria’s usual eye on efficiency and comfort. Inside you’ll find large mirrors that enhance the space, a sink, flushing cassette toilet and a separate shower cubicle.
The perfect spacious family motorhome
When evening draws in and you feel like a game of Scrabble or just flopping for a Game of Thrones marathon, you’ll appreciate the size of the table and our inclusion of the TV and DVD player. In fact, we think between Adria’s creation and what Motorhome Holiday Company has put in it, the Adria Sun Living A49DP is a fantastic motorhome to hire for your next family adventure or off-grid exploration.
