We have been unable to fill the storage space with everything that we had in our last motor home!The control panel is easy to use and has an accompanying App this is very convenient.The Volkswagen Crafter drives like a dream with its lane assist proving very useful on a long drive.The handover by the Kerstin and Callum was extensive and extremely valuable.
