The Pennine Pullman

Luxurious six berth camper with a pedigree

The ever popular Pennine Pullman incorporates an indefinable mix of quality and traditional appeal that has proved to be so elusive to others. This has been the foundation for the Pullman''s continued success for many years.

This six berth camper appeals to many, due to its refined luxury and list of features, which include king-sized front bed, enamelled hob, stainless steel sink unit, mains electrics, three way refrigerator and now the added benefit of hot water.

Luxury and practicality combined have made this camper the envy of the competition and again, the lightweight construction provides the benefit of easy towing with most standard saloon cars.

As you can see, this years design emphasis has been on more features, more value and more luxury and we hope that you agree that we have managed to achieve all three!

REVIEW:

We have owned this model since 2006 and toured it extensively on the continent (France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Spain) and minimal use in Ireland (we now store the FC in France, and use it for a couple of months in the summer).

Some simple modifications have been made:

Bike carrier on rear sliding bed support frame, extra power points in the main cabin, removal of the folding wardrobe to provide extra storage space for travelling.

Good points:

1. Very easy to tow, and can manage the limit of 81mph on designated French motorways without any evidence of 'snaking' . As long as it is loaded correctly and the right nose-weight is achieved.

2. Achieves Class 1 toll rate on French motorways . I.E same as a car, and means you can fast track through the non-stop lanes if you have a relevant tag.

3. The fold out double beds can be permanently made-up, even whilst travelling . So no daily re-organisation required as with some vans.

4. Depending on what extra 'kit' you carry . It is possible to set up the basic FC (without the awning) in about twenty minutes . So overnighting whilst en-route is possible.

5. Internal seating and table allows for meals to be eaten 'indoors' should inclement weather stop you from al-fresco dining.

6. Hot and cold running water.

7. Decent sized fridge (though we do take a second one . Hot summers=lots of cold drinks)

8. You are under canvas . And still retain that 'real camping' feeling that a tent provides.

9. The huge awning provides a lot of extra room/and or shade (can be used with or without the side and front panels zipped in. If it's raining, it can be a boon for extra space. Also useful for siting any extra furniture . Loungers, table, larders, wardrobe(s) etc.

Not so Good things:

1. Mainly . If you are setting up the 'whole deal', and, that's why you really invest in all the 'kit' . It can take quite a while to set it all up. With bikes, boats, larders, recliners, extra table, extra fridge, bed skirts, awning etc etc . Three of us, working in a fairly regimented manner, took a good couple of hours to set it all up . Reduce that to two people . Easily three hours, non-stop . If it's really hot, and you are stopping for cooling beers (!) . Longer.

2. Wet pack ups . Rare on the continent (so far!), but not unusual if you are using it mostly in the UK. Packing up wet means getting it open, dried and aired as soon as possible afterwards.
