Rapido 941M Automatic    Rapido 941M Automatic
2002 Rapido Mercedes 941M Automatic. This "A" class motorhome is built on the fabulous Mercedes 316 chassis, having the 2.7 156BHP engine, and is fitted with the Sprintshift 6 speed semi-automatic gearbox, cab air-conditioning and the proper, Mercedes, cruise control.

For driving security it has a twin camera rear view system with a 7 LCD screen. It has a rear protection/tow-bar with 7pin electrics, this bar is full width.

The motorhome has covered just 44,000 miles and has an MOT until 19th April 2019, passed with no advisories plus very positive comments as to vehicle condition from the MOT tester. We fitted new tyres and a new Varta leisure battery this year when I also serviced the mechanical parts of the motor home. A full habitation service was carried out when we bought the motor home in April last year. There is a 3mtr Fiamma F45s awning which is in as new condition, electric driving mirrors and an outside shower point.

Fitted on the roof is a solar panel which enabled us to free camp for our French holiday this year. It has a Pioneer stereo CD/radio.

It is a 4 berth motorhome having a fixed rear double bed and a 2nd double that drops down over the cab seats. This can be handy if a couple are touring in the summer when they don't want to suffer heat by sleeping together. The bathroom has an electric flush WC, plenty of cabinet space and is of the wet-room type. The toilet cassette is fitted with a SOG fan system so this saves on chemicals.

The kitchen has a sink with drainer and a hob with three burners plus an extractor fan. There is a Smev oven and grill unit fitted and the fridge works on 12v/240v or gas. A large wind-up roof vent is fitted over the lounge, with an illuminated surround, smaller vents are fitted over both beds and in the bathroom. All the windows are fitted with blinds which also have the facility of fly screens. The cab windows have pleated night blinds.

We have fitted LED bulbs throughout the ceiling lights and bathroom lights of the motorhome. Along with the illuminated wardrobe there is ample storage around the inside of the motorhome plus there is a cavernous locker under the rear bed which is accessible from outside or inside. There is also a "Beeny" type draw for your leads, hoses, etc with a capacity of 40kg, plus additional storage in a full width locker under the rear. The gas locker holds two large aluminium refillable bottles and has an external filling point. Fresh water capacity is 140litres and is stored inside.

The Rapido 941M is sort-after, particularly as an automatic, due to having an airy lounge, full equipment and two double beds in a length of just 20feet / 6metres. This makes it shorter in parking than most van conversions but with much more interior space.

Therefore it was Rapidos smallest A class fitted with Mercedes' most powerful engine. This is a great motorhome in great condition which is a tribute to former owners. Both the cabinetry and the upholstery are super. It is very powerful and is effortless to drive having both the automatic gearbox plus cruise control. Payload was measured prior to our holiday, fully loaded, fresh water and fuel full, we weighed 3640kg.

The engine is fitted with an Eberspacher diesel heater for cold weather. Pre-heating, this is super for getting the cab warmed up on cold morning starts. On a recent holiday to the Loire we got an average of 28+MPG and we were very comfortable in the captain seats, both the driver's and passenger's of which have twin armrests and swivel bases. We bought this motorhome after much searching and we have prepared both the motorhome and the mechanicals for us to own and enjoy for many years and many miles however we now find ourselves with changed plans which place this lovely motorhome for sale. The next owners will not be disappointed but with. The need for a bigger disability buggy, it makes sense now to change to a larger motor home with a garage but I will miss the manoeuvrability of this one. This is a very rare and sought after automatic Mercedes Rapido A class model which we have priced to sell so please, no silly offers!
