The three-variants in the Avida Busselton motorhome range are C Type motorhomes, which denotes that there is a double bed over the cabin as part of their design.
The Busselton is built on a rear-wheel-drive Iveco Daily chassis.
Our test vehicle, the C7544SL Busselton, has a double bed over the cabin as well as a double bed towards the rear of the motorhome, and its bathroom (with shower and a toilet) are at the rear. So, it differs from the other two variants in the Busselton range in terms of interior layout: the C7814 has a separate toilet and shower near the mid-section of the motorhome, and its island bed at the rear; and the C7824 has a separate toilet and shower near the mid-section of the motorhome, and two single beds at the rear.
Most noteworthy here though is the fact the C7544SL has a powered slide-out section that the user can open and close via a wall-mounted control when the motorhome is stationary, so there's even more useable space inside the motorhome than there is in the other two variants.
Pricing for the C7544SL starts at $176,070 plus on-road costs, with models expected at Avida dealers in early 2021.
Our Busselton, as tested, is $191,288 drive-away and that includes the additional two seats belts which are an option.
As standard, the C7544SL is a fully self-contained motorhome with a kitchen (including a sink, and a stove top with two gas burners and one induction hot plate, and fold-down bench-extension), microwave, two-door fridge/freezer, a fully upholstered dinette (with table and seating for four), the aforementioned bathroom (with shower, toilet, raised porcelain basin on the vanity and towel hooks) at the rear, the two double beds, roof-mounted air-conditioning, interior LED mood lighting, electric roof hatch, plus 100L fresh-water and 100L grey-water tanks and more. It also has a radio, a smart TV with DVD player, soft-close drawers, handle-free overhead cupboards, louvre windows, roller blinds, cabinetry, an entry door with a four-point security screen and more.
Basically, anything you imagine you might ever need in your mobile accommodation is in here.
Safety features include ABS – Antilock braking system, driver and passenger airbags, entry door grab handle and light, electronic stability program control, onboard fire extinguishers, LP gas-leak detector, and smoke detector.
Obviously there's a plethora of other features onboard the Busselton – some of which you only discover while living in it and we'll get to a few of those soon – and there are numerous colour options for this motorhome's benchtops, splashbacks, upholstery and cabinetry, so for even more detail on standard features and options, contact Avida.
