We discovered motorhome travel by fitting out a campervan ourselves. We travelled all around Switzerland as well as a large part of Europe! Over time, we got a handle on our needs and become proficient in the accessories and living areas. And over the years, with improvements in terms of comfort, we naturally progressed to buying an A-Class motorhome. We had had our eye on the RAPIDO brand for a while as we loved the innovative character of its fittings and the quality of its construction.
In 2004, we stepped aboard the 985 model and drove around Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands. And of course there were trips to witzerland and France - in all seasons!
Our motorhome happily took us to distant lands in summer and to the mountains in winter. This enabled us to explore numerous ski resorts and winter caravan parks in France such as Le Grand Bornand, Les Saisies, Méribel and even Les Menuires.
In 2017 we bought the new A-Class model: 8096dF. We literally fell head over heels for this motorhome, with its face-to-face living room and clearly defined living spaces. It was well-equipped to start with, so we simply added a fuel cell for full autonomy and a satellite dish to stay connected.
To break in our new vehicle, we decided on a trip to Iceland. A journey of 3,425 km! A hostile environment with some of the most active volcanoes in the world. Only Route 1, the Ring Road, is sealed! The others are gravel roads with unstable verges. Adventure with a capital ‘A’! Our vehicle was severely tested under travel conditions that confirmed our RAPIDO’s robustness and quality construction. We visited many waterfalls, crossed lunar landscapes, and met a wide variety of inhabitants. And let’s not forget our amazing encounter with the puffins, the star of the island’s birds.
« Our RAPIDO motorhome was the best hotel for us! »
And often the journey is just as interesting as the destination.
