'New To Us' Executive

Post by cheethama1 on Mon Jun 22, 2015 5:37 pm

We are on the verge of exchanging our Eldiss Autoquest 320 1993 for a Autosleeper Executive 2 berth 1997.   Obviously storage space is considerably less in the Executive and this could be a problem.  Ideally we wanted a 4 berth model so we had the over cab bed but can't find one. Does anyone know if we could (easily!) remove the cupboards over the cab and replace with a board to form a shelf?  Not too bothered about it being used as a bed, it's just for storage of bedding, spare tents ect.
Also, there is no Fiamma on this one,  anyone ever fitted one on this model?
Would appreciate any replies.  We are experienced Motorhomers and really want to own an Autosleeper, either Executive or Talisman.

You wouldn't get the same storage with a 2 berth that you would get in the luton of a 4 berth.  

We had some long hols in our old 4b Executive and the Luton was the major storage for all sorts including gazebos and a Kyam Spare Room, Chairs etc .   We did need it. 

I would keep looking for a 4b Executive or Talisman.  How far afield and where have you looked  ?

If you are not stuck for parking space also look at the Amethyst and Excelsior van they are a bit longer but similar width vans.

Fiamma/Omnister awnings are easily fitted to any of these vans, don't let that put you off any of these Classic AutoSleepers

Thanks Roger, That was really helpful.  We have actually seen one, 4 berth, with overcab bed and Fiamma so hopefully will get what we want. Going to view on Thursday. Will keep you posted!!!
