Flash 656 Budget

Family sized bunk bed motorhome from Chausson

Now with 7 seatbelts

Price: £0

Chausson updated their large bunk bed model again in 2017. The 7 metre Flash 656 has great space and living accommodation for families or a group of friends.  There are now 7 seatbelts and a small bed for the seventh person (not adult size).  There are large bunk beds (suitable for adults as well as children) running along the rear of the motorhome. The over cab bed is larger than the average double plus the head height of the overcab is nice and roomy. An finally there is a dinette that can be converted to a double bed one side and a small child bed the other side.

The washroom has a sizable shower cubicle plus toilet and hand basin.  The kitchen encompasses a sink and worktop area with grill and 3 burner hob.  The tall fridge/freezer makes sure there is enough room for food and drink for everyone.

A clever design at the rear allows the bottom bunk to be raised in transit to allow enough space to store your outdoor table and chairs, child buggy or or sports equipment etc.  Then once you have set up camp, the bunk can be lowered for night time.

In short the Flash 656 offers each member of the party comfort and space: for sleeping, for eating (two dinettes), for taking a shower in a very practical bathroom.
