By William Coleman

Back in February, at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show at the NEC, the Caravan and Motorhome Club held their annual 'Motorhome Design Awards'. The awards celebrate the variety of makes and models of the motorhome industry all while choosing the best the market has to offer to ensure the public make the best decision they can when purchasing.

The independent panel of judges picked 97 vehicles for this years awards. Each judge assessed a wide range of essential criteria which included comfort, electrics and safety, air-con, heating to name just a few.

A Class Over £90k Winner- SMC Motorhomes The Frankia i680 RL Plus

The newly award winning Frankia i680 RL Plus is well deserved of this win and from this video you can really see how much it means to the team at SMC Motorhomes. Collecting the award on behalf of SMC was Aleister who could not have been happier. The recognition that the award win will bring the company really makes all the efforts they have put in worthwhile. The accolade highlights the design and research that goes into creating such luxury touring homes.

The round seating at the rear of the motorhome provides a very comfortable leisure area that frees up a lot of space to have a good size kitchen along with spacious bathroom that can be combined with a shower.

Another feature that I always appreciate is light flooded living space as when touring I love to let as much natural light and sunshine into where I am living.
