Corinium storage

Post by Libraryman2 on Tue Mar 14, 2017 2:00 pm

hi all, I'm considering a swap to the Corinium fb from my Broadway!

I'm unclear on a couple of points and unfortunately (or fortunately depending on point of view) I'm in Spain until May so I can't go to see one!

If owners could please help me answer a couple of questions!

Do the front benches have any storage space under them like the Broadway has?
And does anyone know the payload availability with the 4tonne chassis?

I know in 3500kg spec, the payload is 290kg give or take but how much does the chassis upgrade use up? 
I would hope that the total payload might be very generous with the 4tonne option!

Regards Ray

Can't help with the storage, but the manual for uprated chassis (4000kg) shows 708kg user payload for the FB. Page 8.4.

Excellent Peter, that's great, just need to get a view on the storage if any, under those front benches.

The lounge seating looks identical to my Gloucester, with a drawer on one side with two spaces one each side. On mine the other side is part used for the top of the gas box, but with an underslung gas tank, it should be clear for full storage.

Yes from the odd picture I see, it looks like a cupboard door on the front!
The Broadway makes great use of that under bench storage and I would hate to lose it.

Just another question if anyone can help!
Does the alko chassis have cart spring suspension or the tortion bar?

We have the Corinium FB on a 4tonne chassis and glad we chose the upgrade, storage in the front left locker is large and we barely fill it due to so much storage space in other areas. Our right hand locker is filled with the Sargent electrics, two leisure batteries leaving a small amount of space for equipment that is little used.

Cheers camp1, interestingly I've just been going through the specs and the FB is showing only 1 hab battery.....the RB shows 2?
It may be one of those subtle changes for the 2017 models....I hope it does have 2 batteries, that would be great!
Thanks for the info on the storage, really useful.

I mentioned two batteries to give you an idea of the space on the right, I have added a second battery so your quite right normally this model only comes with one leisure battery.

Ahh, that's cool, and good news still because it tells me there's room and as it happens; I have a very good spare :)

We have the Corinium RB, and it is fitted with 2 leisure batteries as standard.
We have moved all our kit from our Burford into the Corinium and have quite a lot of space left.
The island bed has an amazing amount of storage underneath, and the nearside locker is large with access by also lifting the nearside bed.

Cheers Paul, that's helpful. I'm struggling on my choice as yet, I need to make a decision soon.

Hi Paul

We have an RB on order delivery for SEPT. New to Motorhomes. How are you finding your Corinium RB? I haven't come across anyone who has one yet.

I haven't seen one out on the road either. They do have a WOW! factor and have good write ups Any tips etc., we have upgraded everything and have a tracker. Just see

seems like Sept is forever away.

Thanks in advance.

Just been to Autosleeper Derby and spent some time in the RB...very nice.....We've ordered the FB with the 4 tonne upgrade...also very nice but big vehicles! I'm a little apprehensive of the overhang coming from the Broadway but I guess I'll get used to it ...eek!!

Also best to have someone to 'see you safely back' when you're reversing despite a rear view camera fitted. There maybe some nasty hidden surprises that a video link might not immediately identify. Have fun! up!

Interesting point...I've just received confirmation that my request to have a twin reversing camera fitted by the factory has been acknowledged!

I didn't realise until today that it was an option!!

Yes Terry, insomuch as I wanted it delivered 1st August, it should be on time!

My wife had a number of personal issues that needed to be resolved, before the handover, as it happens they are now all completed but I can't bring the date forward unfortunately!
