Encore 255

A traditional fixed ‘French-bed’ layout, the Encore 255 accommodates four, with ease. The front lounge converts into a further double bed, with foldaway seating concealed neatly beneath - so even if used as a couple’s motorhome, there’s always the option of taking family or friends, too!
