Auto Sleeper caravan bed extensions

Post by plato2012 on Fri May 26, 2017 5:30 pm

We currently have a Stanton motorhome which we use extensively, at least 180 nights each year. For some of our longer stays we are thinking that a caravan would better suit our needs having the tow car as transport when on site. We would also keep the Stanton which is perfect for island hopping and touring holidays.

We like the Auto Sleeper build quality so their caravan seems a logical choice but I cannot find one to view or see a detailed spec. At 6'5" tall all caravan single beds are too small and we do not like a double bed across the van. Most caravans extend the two singles into a double by pulling out a slated contraption from the front end of the van but the Auto Sleeper motorhomes allow for a single bed to become wider by sliding sideways a metal support with legs making the single bed wider, still allowing a gap in the middle and allowing long legs to hang over the end.

My questions are: 1.Do Auto Sleeper caravan single beds had the sideways extension as in motorhomes? 2.Does anyone know the bed size in the Grosvenor? 3.When did Auto Sleepers stop making caravans.

Looking at a video of a Grosvenor the bed extends out similar to the motorhomes layout.

This AS Caravan brochure gives size data including bed sizes, page 19.

Thanks Peter. Found the video and downloaded the brochure so have all the information. Looks like they were made 2011 to 2014, quite a few for sale but they have been on the market for some time. We will go and view as soon as able.

Not an Autosleeper but build quality as good, the larger Eriba caravans may suit you.
