The winner of the Motorhome of the Year: The Knaus Boxlife 600 Van Conversion
Criteria for judging includes things such as value for money, build quality, design, practicality and appeal for British motorhomers. Innovation gets a big look-in too, but it must be seen to be well thought out, useful and properly engineered. Finally there’s the first impression factor. These are expensive things, part of our hobby and our pleasure, so if a ‘van meets all other criteria and delights as well, so much the better.
All of which just leaves the winner of the High-Top Class and 2016’s Motorhome of the Year, the Knaus Boxlife 600. Based on the ever-popular long wheelbase Fiat Ducato panel van, Knaus’ Boxlife 600 also contains an ever-popular layout. Available from quite a few other converters, the front lounge, rear fixed bed design majors on practicality: good dining, two rear travel seats and an ever-ready double bed with big storage beneath. Sandwiched in between, kitchens and washrooms take on compromises, mainly down to lack of space.
