Here we have a 1992 Citroen Pilote, it is a 5 berth motorhome, it has a 2.5 turbo diesel engine with only 61,000 miles on the clock.
The driving position has cruise gear control, complete with large reversing camera and audible reversing sensors; so despite the vehicles size, it’s simple to reverse and see exactly what is behind you! (with rear spacing markings also).
Cab interior car radio and a ‘net’ parcel shelf.
The Pilote’s forward seats ‘revolve’ and are completely adjustable for driving and family interaction. Factory fitted rear ‘car seat belts’ as well.
The interior upholstery is a little dark but multi coloured and contrasts with the woodwork inside, giving the interior a very classy feeling. Although the upholstery is dark in colour it does not make the inside seem dark due to the large windows, which are integrally complete with factory fitted roll down blinds including curtains, complete with opening mosquito netting and double glazed sliding opening windows (and plenty of them!).
The side dinette, complete with dining table and cupboard storage space is open plan to the kitchen. The kitchen comes fitted with all the essentials, including; ‘Integral’ built-in microwave, a 3-way fridge (Gas/230v/12v), gas hob (2 rings), toasting grill and a built in sink unit.
Central heating electronically controlled, floor-vented ‘warm air’ ducts (which extend into the rear shower compartment) and includes ‘roof opening’ ventilation windows.
Opposite; the lounge area is very open plan and spacious, making it comfortably sized when folding out into beds. Complete with under-seat fresh/waste water holding tanks.
Above in the forward cabin is a drop down, hydraulic assisted, full size double bed.
The Pilote has an end wash/shower room with hot and cold running water of good size, complete with cassette flushing toilet system.
On the exterior roof of the motorhome is a dome sky satellite finer (self-aligning and locating aerial system). Also fitted is a 1200 Watt panel complete with automatic 12v battery charging system.
Inclusive to external fittings include a cycle-rack, tow bar hitch and a rear folding ladder onto ‘roof-top’ storage. Also several external storage lockers and an external water connection for the removable outside shower head unit.
The side entrance, stable type ‘half-door’ has an electric operated step mechanism for easy-access. This door has a lockable fold-out handle for additional door security and assisted help if required.
This motorhome has factory fitted, top of the range, awning canopy (for protection from sun/rain), which is perfect to wind-out for the summer nights.
The Pilote also has a ‘Garage Pump’ gas bottle refill connection, an all-inclusive electric ‘hook-up’ point for an external BS4343, 230v power supply.
