Summit 5

Family road trip, here we come!

Day-time Layout

The kids travel upfront making it much easier to talk to them and reducing the chance of travel sickness. Walk through access to the front cab is a 'must have' in bad weather.

Night-time Layout

The rear bed and the cab over bed are both permanent so there's no need make up the beds when you're ready to sleep. The dinette converts to a large single bed.

If you’re taking the whole family or a group of friends, then you’ll need a few extra beds. The Summit 5 motorhome is designed to accommodate up to five people - three adults and two children or four adults. Or if you’re a family of two adults and two teens who want separate beds, then the Summit 5 is for you. It ticks all the boxes for safety with three point seat belts for all. What's more, it's packed with clever European design features like the fold-down alcove bed which gives more headroom above the pilot seats and easier access to the living area.

Our motorhomes: what makes them special

Our motorhomes: design and comfort

Our motorhomes: bathroom and bedroom

Our motorhomes: freedom camping

The chassis has been especially designed for motorhome conversion so the ride is much more comfortable for those travelling in the back than in motorhomes built on a truck body. It's packed with clever European design features like the swivelling pilot seats, memory foam mattress, loads of cupboards and drawers, and a spacious bathroom that converts to a drying room.

Dedicated Bedroom Space

Instead of the traditional lounge converts to bedroom layout, the rear of the Summit is bedroom only. That means there’s no need to make up your bed at the end of the day. The bed is a thick and super comfortable cold foam super flex mattress so sleeping in late will be no problem.

European Innovation

Like the Escape 4, the Summit has been imported directly from German manufacturer Bürstner, one of the most innovative and successful manufacturers in Europe. Their designs and manufacturing techniques are a source of inspiration to other manufacturers around the world. Each vehicle is designed and built with an incredible eye to detail and supreme comfort. The windows are tinted and double-glazed for added warmth, and the lighting is all top-of-the-line LED. 

Four Season Camping

The Summit is as comfortable in cooler months as it is in the height of summer. The full insulation, including insulated windows, plus the central gas and electric heating will keep you warm as toast when the weather gets cooler. The centrally heated bathroom can be used as a drying room so there’s no need to hang your wet underclothes from the wing mirrors.

Run Like a Rabbit, Not a Snail

It is built on a powerful Fiat Ducato 2.3L turbo diesel – the only vehicle specifically designed for campervan conversion. The 320N of torque will give you all the power you need to tackle any mountain pass. Now with automatic transmission, you can relax at the wheel or shift into sport mode for optimal performance. The cab has more room, more visibility, better ergonomics and functionality, more drawers and storage compartments, more shelves, more comfortable seats for driver and passengers, and less noise than motorhomes built on vehicles other than Fiat.
